Imagine you want to tell a user where to find e.g. their private messages, set their preferred language, fine-tune their notifications… In your browser, these links will be unique to your username i.e.
https://forum.movement-strategy.org/u/qgil-wmf/messages. These links only work for you, not for anyone else.
If you substitute “u/(your username)” for “my”, then you get a URL that will work for any logged in user. Some examples:
- Private messages:
- Preferred language:
I hope you find this useful when helping new users find their way through the many features this forum offers!
