<br> == 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.
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. &nbsp;
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. See [[FamilySearch Wiki:Purpose and Appropriate Topics#FamilySearch_Wiki_is_not...|FamilySearch Research Wiki is not]].
== Guidelines for User pages ==
A user account should be used only by one person, and that in most cases one person should use only one account.
=== Name of User page ===
Your user page is automatically named after your username you chose when you register for a FamilySearch account. Currently you can not change your user name without getting another FamilySearch account.<br>
Your User Page must display your correct username (the one you log into the wiki with) as the page title. You should not change the name of the page by using a Number one heading.
For example: if your username is Genealogy223 and your real name is Dale Smith, then the title of your wiki user page will be Genealogy223, not Dale Smith, as this is confusing to other users.
