Wikipedia has an article on:

A user page is a page about a wiki user with an account on the wiki, and who is (most probably) a contributor. If you have registered, your user account has been created but you still have neither user page nor talk page. Then you can create your own user page. Your user page is linked in the top right. More importantly, others will see links to your user page from various places which assist wiki collaboration. This includes the "Recent changes" and "page history" displays (See Help:Tracking changes). You can also link to your user page within text of a wiki page, which is mainly useful on talk pages when you sign your name.

If you have not registered, you are identified by your own IP address. No user page nor talk page exist. The talk page of this IP user creates automatically when the first article is added to it. You can then create the user page of the IP address.

Miraheze accounts

Since 2018, this wiki ("electowiki") has been hosted by Miraheze. Since there a hundreds (er....thousands?) of active wikis here on Miraheze's infrastruture (where electowiki is hosted), one can also create a global user page for all Miraheze wikis. See "metawiki:Global user page" to learn more about that.
