Help page

In addition to the articles and their Talk pages, there are some other categories of behind-the-scenes pages that help Wikipedians communicate with each other, and serve a variety of other roles in building Wikipedia. These different areas are often referred to as namespaces — as in, "the Talk namespace".

User pages and User Talk pages

If you want to share information about yourself, the place to put it is your User Page. You can gain easy access to your User page if you are logged in as a registered user. (You can always get to your User page, if you have one, by searching for it or following the link in your signature on a talk page, but if you log in you get a set of quick links to your personal pages in one of the margins of your screen.)

If other users want to communicate with you, they will leave a message on your User talk page.

Some other areas

Content written in a Template page will be displayed in articles that contain the corresponding template reference. For example, the content written in Template:ProtPage will appear in any article that contains the {{protected}} tag. Take a look at Templates to see what templates have already been created. You can use the corresponding tags in articles. You can also create new templates if you're feeling brave. As always, use the Sandbox to play around until you're happy!
