Notes relating to user intro pages
(Taken from an email by Ulf sent on 12/4/2011)
“Here is my intro page on en.wikipedia.org: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Urehmann
It allows me to say something about me. I have almost left it as it was, except that I modified a bit the part "About me".
Here is the user page of some colleague, which is much more elaborated: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Tsirel
What I think of is that we draft a template page (which is edible by me) a copy of which appears as a template for each new user, allowing to give a little info. For example, there should be a field which informs about the special research fields of the user, in keywords as well as in Math Subject Classification.
Also, there could be a field in which the names of pages could be included for which the user (e.g., an editor) could list the pages for which the user feels responsible.
So: As a template, the page should be edible by me, and the local copy should be edited by the user.”
