A userspace draft is a draft article in the user namespace intended to go into Wikipedia as a proper article in the future. You must create a user account to create your own userspace and be logged in to use it.

Explanation:

  • Every registered user account on Wikipedia has its own "userspace" - for instance, User:Example/Lipsum is a page called "Lipsum" in User:Example's userspace.
  • Userspace is part of Wikipedia, and its use is governed by community rules, but is not part of the encyclopedia. (The encyclopedia part of Wikipedia is called the "mainspace" - eg Lorem ipsum is a page in mainspace.)
  • Drafts are typically done on a "user subpage" (eg User:Example/Lipsum).
  • For a list of all your drafts (and any other subpages you have), click on "my contributions" (at the very top right of any Wikipedia page, if you're logged in), then scroll to the bottom and click the "subpages" link.

Enter your article name below.

Note: after creation, you'll be pointed to Wikipedia:So you made a userspace draft, which has instructions on what to do next.
  • As a courtesy, when you have a page in your userspace you no longer need, edit it to add  {{db-userreq}}  at the top. It will be deleted shortly.
