Folks,

I am in the process of creating a user home page template for the upcoming wiki.

My question is this:
What sort's of information would you like to see included in a userpage template?

So far I've got username, avatar, optional user photograph, links to their journals and to private message them. You probably would also want to include the ability to add other contact information like e-mail and various IM platforms (which ones?).

I'm also including a structure for creating seperate 'pages' for each of the member's game projects and an automatically generated Table of Contents for each section of the user's home page. Can you think of anything else that would be nice to include in a homepage?

Nothing too fancy obviously, as content is limited to tiki wiki markup.

Let me know your thoughts please.

I was thinking something like a favorites list. It would allow you to mark certain posts/pages/journals for later reference. Boardgamegeek has this feature and it's really nice.

Good luck with the Wiki!

Tiki Wiki already has the ability to 'bookmark' Wiki pages. I don't believe this functionality extends to forums and journals, but I will check.

Actually by home page, I was referring more to a page that would 'represent' a person to the community. So I was more looking for features that would help members provide information to other members.

But good idea, please do keep up the suggestions.

A list of favourite or recommended games would be nice. If that included the chance to add some comments about the listed games, it would be even better.

Well everyone can personalize their own wiki pages. Think of it as a do-it-yourself webpage. What I'm looking for is stuff to include in a template that will gently guide the user into providing information about themselves to the community. Of course, the user can use their page really for whatever they want, but I want to make it easy for members to take the plunge and get involved with the community.

So maybe a "Favorite Games" section, then?
