This page or section is an official policy on Wookieepedia.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone must follow. Please use the Consensus track to propose changes to this policy.

Wookieepedia's user page and profile policy outlines the rules and guidelines pertaining to a user's user page and profile. While Wookieepedians should keep in mind that their user page is not meant to be their main focus on Wookieepedia, users are encouraged to express themselves.

User pages do play an important role in introducing yourself to the rest of the Wookieepedia community. Users are therefore encouraged to create a unique user page that gives some information about themselves and represents what they bring to Wookieepedia. For example, users may wish to list their Star Wars collections, showcase their favorite characters, highlight specific editing contributions they are proud of, indicate future projects they hope to work on, or identify their preferred pronouns.

Some users enjoy writing personal Star Wars fanfiction on their Wookieepedia user page. Wookieepedia recommends the Star Wars Fanon Wiki as a suitable setting for longer works.


The following section lists specific rules for user pages and profiles. User pages that violate these policies may be edited to be brought into compliance or deleted by an administrator.

  1. Users may only have one user page. Users may not create secondary accounts to host multiple user pages (see Wookieepedia:Sockpuppetry). However, users may create subpages of their user page to accommodate personal projects, which can be done by clicking this link. For example, see User:JediMasterMacaroni/CanonLegendsStatus.
    • Subpages are subject to all user page policies listed herein, and there is no limit to how many subpages a user may have.
    • Users may request to have their user page and subpages deleted at any time.
    • Blogs and guestbooks are disallowed on user pages.
  2. All user page content must be "safe for work" and comply with Wookieepedia policies, including the Fandom anti-discrimination policy.
  3. Fanfiction may only be presented on a user's main user page, not on subpages. Users are encouraged to use the Star Wars Fanon Wiki for longer works.
  4. Users with no Wookieepedia editing contributions after twelve (12) consecutive months are considered inactive and may have their user page replaced with the {{Inactive}} template. All subpages of inactive users will be redirected to their main user page. Users are welcome to return their user page and subpages to active status at any time.
  5. Users who change their username by registering a new account must either note their name change on their former user page or redirect their former user page to their new user page. In this situation, the user's subpages must either be renamed to reflect the new username, redirected to either the former or new user page, or deleted at the user's request.
  6. Users may redirect their user page to their talk page, but their talk page may not redirect to their user page or any subpages (see Wookieepedia:Talk page policy).
  7. The following is additionally prohibited:
    • Spam
    • Content or links to content that is illegal or forbidden, including websites that host pirated Star Wars source material, such as Star Wars film downloads or PDF files of Star Wars books.
    • Non-user categories outside of the Wookieepedians category tree may not be added to user pages or subpages. Particularly, users must take care not to add article-specific categories to project subpages. Bots may remove article-specific categories from user pages or subpages.
    • Users may not make false claims about their Wookieepedia user status, such as claiming to be an administrator when they are not. Such claims are subject to removal by a Wookieepedia administrator.
  8. No user may edit another user's user page or subpage without their express permission. This includes maintenance edits, such as fixing redlinks or redirects, but does not apply to the addition of {{Inactive}} or administrative removal of inappropriate content.
  9. Bots are allowed to make routine maintenance edits unless the user has opted out by placing the {{Nobots}} template on their user page or user subpage(s).

User images

  1. No more than 3 images should be uploaded which are intended solely for a userpage or customized signature. This means images that are also used on articles or shared userbox templates fall outside of the limit.
  2. User images must be tagged with the {{user-image}} template.
  3. Users with no Wookieepedia editing contributions after twelve (12) consecutive months are considered inactive and lose their privileges in regards to user images.

Excessive user page edits

Users who edit their user page excessively may be subject to sanctions. Excessive user page editing is defined as more than 500 user page edits to less than 100 edits in other namespaces. (To check your edit count, enter your username at Special:Editcount.)
