Welcome to the Vindictus Official Wiki![edit source]

User profiles on the Wiki are comprised of two pages connected to your user name: your User page and your Talk page.

User Page[edit source]

A blank user page is created when you register for an account. Your username in page histories, recent changes, and signatures will be linked to this page, so people may click on these to find out more about you. You will have a user page ready for your use on each wiki you edit. In your user page page, you can describe as much or as little about yourself as you'd like. You can describe your contributions to the Wiki, keep a collection of useful links to wiki pages, or just use it to keep reminders for yourself. It's a place for you to tell other editors about you.

Talk Page[edit source]

There is a talk or discussion page attached to every wiki page that is created. These pages exist for communicating with other Wiki members about articles and improving the wiki. Just click the "discussion" or "talk page" link at the top of any page to find it. This link may be red while the page is empty, and another color when there is some conversation happening on the page. Registered contributors have a personal talk page where other users can leave messages. Just click the "discussion/talk page" link at the top of a user page to visit their user talk page. You can also reach your own talk page by clicking on the "My talk" text next to your username in the top right corner of the screen. If someone leaves a new message on your talk page, you will see a bright banner across the top of all other Wiki pages you visit. Click the link in the message (or the userbar link "My talk") to go to your talk page.

Talk Page Etiquette[edit source]

Some other general guidelines for talk pages:

  • Sign your comments by typing "~~~~" (four tildes). This will add your name and a timestamp.
  • Add comments to the end of the page.
  • When replying to a comment, indent your reply by placing a colon (":") at the beginning of a line.
  • Keep your comments polite and friendly. It's always best to be civil, even if things get heated.

User Page Policy[edit source]

Although administrators are pretty lenient in regards to user pages, any pages that do not abide by the Wiki Policy on user pages will be dealt with accordingly.
