Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it's found that a policy restricts something that the reason the policy was created didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.

This is the policy for userpages.

General notes

The Narutopedia has had a fair bit of issues with things not related to the wiki and users who don't actually help the wiki. For that reason among a few other things there is a policy on userpages. If a new userpage falls under one of these criteria it will likely be deleted.

  • Is only used to create a fan profile (is not related to the wiki in any way)
  • Does not relate the user as an editor to the wiki (Userpages are for editors to give information about themselves as editors on the wiki; ie: Past wiki editing experiences, what they do on the wiki, and preferred methods of contact), thus personal userpages are deleted
  • Belongs to a user that has never contributed to the wiki.
    • Simply commenting on talkpages is not considered contribution, unless you're seriously contributing to discussions on how to improve articles
    • This generally doesn't apply to simple, relevant userpages. Especially users simply sharing their userpage from Wikia central.
  • One liners which don't state anything helpful or just state the obvious (this includes under construction pages)
  • Is a blank page.

Generally, the idea is try to actually contribute to the wiki for a while first, then after a while just add something short to detail who you are as an editor. A fair number of our best editors don't even have userpages, most of the userpages created here just feature abuse.
