On some Wiki they have "Homepages" for the members and these are listed at a Wiki Page called CatagoryHomePage (for example) but here at the Sola Roof Wiki we use this "Profiles" Group (see also: WikiGroup) to connect us to the Personal Space that you can build within our Wiki. This provides an enhanced level of communication among our members that is provided by the powerful features of WikiGroups.

One purpose of this Profiles/YourName is to provide some personal information (and links to other pages if you want to provide more background). Members who wish to have a HomePage with greater capacity for collaboration are welcome to establish a personal Sub Wiki using the YourName/YourName format in the Edit Window, which will create a Group called Your Name. This is your Group HomePage and is the hub of all your Personal Space and your Profiles Page is the gateway into that space. However, activites and changes in your Personal Space are not reported at the SolaRoof/RecentChanges because they are about communications rather than community wide collaborative work. What we can do is check the Profiles/RecentChanges in order to track Member Activity, which is a "feed" to notify the community of changes in our Personal Space that could be of interest to others.

Therefore, you use your Profiles Page to announce changes and new developments at your personal Wiki Group, Wiki Blog or Sola Roof Projects where you participate.
