Here's a brief introduction to the user template and how to use it.

Configuration[]

The user template has the following configuration:

{{user|~~~|real name|profession|nationality|location}}

Between the pipes[]

user[]

The first field has to say 'user', because that is what tells the system to activate the user template.

~~~[]

The second field has to be filled with three tildes (~~~). This code automatically inserts your user name.

real name[]

In this field, you insert your real name. It can be your full name, your first name, your surname, or your nickname.

profession[]

In this field your specify your profession. It has to be in nominalized form as in "student", "gardener", "linguist" and "goalkeeper".

nationality[]

In this field you specify your nationality.

location[]

In this field you specify your present geographical location such as the country or city you are located in.

I don't want people to know my real name, profession etc.[]

That's perfectly all right. Then you just write "N/A" in the fields. However, the first two fields are obligatory (i.e. the one that activates the template and the one that automatically inserts your user name).

Where to use the template[]

Please use it when introducing yourself on the new user log. You may also want to use it on your own user page as a quick and easy way of adding some information about yourself.
