User talk pages

A "User talk page" is a talk page associated with someone's user page. This is where you can leave messages for that particular wiki user.

This can function as a kind of messaging system. That user will receive the following when new messages have been left on their talk page:

This notification will continue to be displayed on all pages until that user revisits their talk page.

That user will also be notified by email if they have a valid, confirmed email address linked to their account.

Note that messages posted on user talk pages are not private, and others can join the conversation.
