== Purpose of User page ==
FamilySearch Research Wiki provides '''user pages''' to facilitate communication among '''participants.''' Generally, you should avoid substantial content on your user page that is unrelated to FamilySearch Research Wiki.
More help on adding content to a user page can be found [[Help:User Page|here]].
FamilySearch Research Wiki is not a general hosting service, so your user page is not a personal website. The user page is a great place to create a personal profile or introduction to yourself as a FamilySearch Research Wiki contributor.
Your user page should be used as part of your efforts to contribute to the project (a location to keep helpful hints, or what you last contributed). In addition, there is broad agreement that you may not include in your user space material that is likely to bring the project into disrepute. e.g. blatant advertisements or lengthy blogs are inappropriate.
