Wikitravellers typically include one or two paragraphs about themselves personally and their areas of interest in Wikitravel. A portrait photograph or other picture may be appropriate but isn't necessary. Some Wikitravellers also keep a list of articles they've worked on (a brag rag) on their User page.
Remember that Wikitravel is not a personal home page service or a vacation photo service. Overloaded User pages are considered a form of abuse. In addition, while it is OK to associate yourself with your company if you work for or run a business, user pages should not be used for advertising.
On the User page, a User contributions link to the additions and improvements a user has contributed to Wikitravel appears in the toolbox in the left sidebar. The User contributions page looks pretty much like a Page history page, with the same fields. Backpacker Pad We are a Khmer family run guesthouse in Ban Lung (Ratanakiri) established in March 2012. Our friendly English speaking staffs are happy to accommodate your every sightseeing need. My name is Sophat and I ran the Lake View guesthouse for 6 years before opening Backpacker Pad to give travelers a REAL Cambodian experience.Whether you would like a 3 day extreme jungle trek, a day trip to the waterfalls and volcanic lake, visit minority villages or just cruise around the province on a bike at your own leisure, we can arrange all of this for you. Backpacker Pad is your first choice for a true off the beaten track experience in the warm and welcoming Ban Lung.
We offer 3 double rooms, 3 twin rooms and one 4 bed dormitory (ensuite) ranging from $2,$4 to $5. All rooms include a fan and we have a hot water shower at no extra cost. Rooms include a complimentary towel on arrival.

Using a personal sandbox
Wikitravellers should use their User page for developing new ideas about Wikitravel, or for putting together a "toolbox" of frequently-needed text and Wiki markup. It can be helpful to create subpages (example: "User:MyName/Sandbox") for tools, brag rags, new article brainstorming, and TODO lists.
It's possible for other users to edit, change, delete, move, overwrite, add to, or otherwise mess around with User pages or subpages. It's generally considered bad form to do so, though, unless invited by the user.
It's important to remember that while User pages and subpages don't need to follow the style guidelines for Wikitravel articles -- after all, these are for personal organization and use -- all content must be under our copyleft.
If another Wikitraveller posts new text on your User talk page, you will see a small red flashing light at the top of the page next to "my talk".
User talk pages also have a Email this user link in the toolbox on the left menu. Because email from the site can be disabled by the user, however, it's often more useful and preferred to just post a comment on the user's personal talk page.
