Verification of Fixes[edit]

Hi, this is Stonulf. I think I'm entering this message properly. (If this isn't the proper way to contact you, please feel free to correct me). I've made an account, but I made my userpage first (not exactly my shining moment). I see that you have added me as a contributor on my userpage. Does this essentially make me the owner of that page? Or is there a separate process that i'll need to go through?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stonulf (talkcontribs) .

Hi, Stonulf. There are two pages with quite different purposes. The page User:Stonulf is your User Page. That's a page where you can put whatever you want (within reason), and format things however you like. You can think of it as your personal page. On the other hand, the page Stonulf is an Article, which is owned by the entire community and may be (will be) edited by anyone at any time.--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 20:06, 11 June 2015 (EDT)
Ok. Can I transfer the content of that article onto my userpage, then delete (or have you delete) the article? I'd like to come to the end result of having just one page for myself. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stonulf (talkcontribs) .
Hi Stonulf. I think you misunderstand the situation - we're not a provider of homepages; we're a furry encyclopedia containing publicly-edited articles about people of interest to the furry fandom, published under a free-content license. We have an article about you, which you have contributed to. You are welcome to do so in the future as well, but you do not have exclusive control over it, except where other editors allow it (for example, to remove details about your real life). Your user page is primarily for communicating with other editors and talking about your involvement with the wiki - compare GreenReaper and User:GreenReaper, or Equivamp and User:Equivamp - although you're welcome to present yourself in your own words there as well. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:14, 12 June 2015 (EDT)
