Thank you for this creation, and now I wonder if it is better for us to merge its current content and User:Aphaia/User page draft, which reflects the community consensus at a certain time (though at the moment it was smaller than now). "Language issue" seems not to be mentioned here, and it might be useful to add this stuff to the current document. --Aphaia 13:29, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

"How do I delete my user and user talk pages?" section[edit]

I've just made some changes to the "How do I delete my user and user talk pages?" section to bring it in line with Wikiquote:Speedy deletions. I chose to edit this page and not that one on the basis that WQ:SD is tagged as an official policy, while this page is not (and is probably more of a guideline). —LrdChaos (talk) 13:52, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Since it seemed like there was some support for going the other way with this (that is, allowing speedy deletion of user pages), I've updated both this page and WQ:SD with such a change. I adopted a line from the corresponding Wikipedia guideline regarding user talk pages; in particular, that such pages are generally not deleted, unless there's a good reason. —LrdChaos (talk) 13:55, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Material about non-notable persons[edit]

I don't see anything here or at WQ:QLP or WQ:NOT that specifically addresses the problem of people (usually school kids) who post material about their friends and enemies, often using their user pages to embarrass them. I'd like to add something like the following, probably under "What should I avoid?", to make it clear that this should not be done:

Just as with any other Wikiquote page, user pages should not be used to attack others, nor should they be used to quote non-notable living persons who are likely not to welcome such global exposure. (See Wikiquote:Quotes of living persons and w:Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons for more details.)
