Wikitravellers]] that create their own [[Project: How to create a user account| user accounts]] get assigned their own ''' user page'''. These pages provide:
a ''' brief introduction''' about the Wikitraveller.
*...a '''personal sandbox''' for each Wikitraveller to work on projects or ideas outside the "main" travel guide.
a ''' communications medium''' for collaborating with other Wikitravellers.
Wikitravellers typically include one or two paragraphs about themselves personally and their areas of interest in Wikitravel. A portrait photograph or other picture may be appropriate but isn't necessary. Some Wikitravellers also keep a list of articles they've worked on (a ''brag rag'') on their User page.
Goals and non-goals#Non-goals| Remember]] that Wikitravel is not a ''' personal home page service''' or a ''' vacation photo service'''. Overloaded User pages are considered a form of abuse.
On the User page, a ''' User contributions''' link shows all changes that the user has contributed to Wikitravel. The User contributions page looks pretty much like a [[Project: Page history help| Page history]] page, with the same fields.
Wikitravellers should use their User page for developing new ideas about Wikitravel, or for putting together a " toolbox" of frequently-needed text and [[Project:Wiki markup| Wiki markup]]. It can be helpful to create [[Project:Subpages help| subpages]] for tools, brag rags, new article brainstorming, and TODO lists.
It's possible for other users to edit, change, delete, move, overwrite, add to, or otherwise mess around with User pages or subpages. It's generally considered [[Project:bad form|bad form]] to do so, though, unless invited by the user.
It's important to remember that while User pages and subpages don't need to follow the style guidelines for Wikitravel articles -- after all, these are for personal organization and use -- all content '''must''' be under our [[Project:copyleft|copyleft]].
User pages have a link to [[Project:User email help| Email this user]] in the toolbox on the left menu. Because email from the site can be disabled by the user, however, it's often more useful to post a comment on the user's [[Project: Using talk pages| personal talk page]].
If another Wikitraveller posts text on your User talk page, you will see a little link when you're viewing other Wikitravel pages.
