Tip of the Month: What is the User Page?

  • The primary purpose of the user page is to describe who you are the others in the community.
  • Instead of listing affiliations and disclosers on each article, these items are included on your user page.
  • To edit your user page:
    • Login
    • Click on your user name at the top right hand side of any page (next to the "Talk" icon)
    • Choose the "Edit with Form" link
    • Note: There is a free text area to add more information
    • If you want to add your photo, first upload your image file to Eyewiki, then use the "Edit" link and choose "Insert."

Section Statistics
Each section is now being asked to keep a minimum of 60% of their articles up to date. As you know articles on EyeWiki need to be reviewed every 6 months by an EyeWiki editor; after 6 months the article is tagged as "update pending" meaning an editor needs to check to see that the article is still current and that any changes made by the community are appropriate. Section statistics can be found in each of your Portals. As a bonus any section that is over 80% will be featured on social media. Please help maintain EyeWiki by keeping your assigned articles up to date.

Find Your Article Assignments

  • Log in and go to the My Portal link at the top of the page next to "Recent Changes"
  • This link leads directly to your section's Portal page
  • To find your own article assignments, sort by “Assigned Editor (portal member)” or use the filter
  • Review the Quick-Start Guide for Editors for helpful tips. For easy reference, this guide is also linked to each section Portal page.

When you complete an article review go to Edit with Form at the top of the article and change:

  • The date to be current

  • The reviewer name to your own
