Fedora User Wiki

If you wasn’t aware, Fedora users can create their own user information page on a wiki.  Mine for example is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Paulmellors [please note that’s it’s currently pretty sparse]

One of the more interesting things on the page is my list of badges.  I’ll not explain what they are as you can read it here

To add a list of your badges to your wiki, all you need to add to the page is this

{{ #fedorabadges: paulmellors }}      just make sure you replace my username with your own and you’ll have all your hard earned shiny badges on your wiki. #funtimes

Alternatively, you can add an infobox that displays all your information [including badges], this is the wiki code for mine

{{Infobox user
|REAL-NAME= Paul RJ Mellors
|location= Nottingham, UK
|birthday= April 15, 1972
|fas-name= paulmellors
|email=paulmellors@fedoraproject.org
|irc-nick= MooDoo
|irc-channels= #fedora-ambassadors #fedora-uk #fedora-diversity #fedora-mktg #fedora-join}}

Now you can populate your wiki page with information that people might like to read, one way of getting to know you, you never know someone might like to buy you a beer one day……[hint hint] 😉
