In addition to the articles and their Talk pages, there are some other categories of behind-the-scenes pages that help Vincentians communicate with each other, and serve a variety of other roles in building Vincentian Encyclopedia. These different areas are often referred to as namespaces — as in, "the Talk namespace".

User pages and User Talk pages

If you want to share information about yourself, the place to put it is your User page. You can gain easy access to your User page if you are logged in as a registered user. (You can always get to your User page, if you have one, by searching for it or following the link in your signature on a talk page, but if you log in you get a set of quick links to your personal pages in one of the margins of your screen.)

If other users want to communicate with you, they will leave a message on your User talk page.

Some other areas

Pages in the Vincentian Encyclopedia namespace provide information about Vincentian Encyclopedia and how to use it.

Content written in a Template page will be displayed in articles that contain the corresponding template reference. You can also create new templates.
