Users will be advised of an impending deletion so they have a chance to save the information first.

h4. Setting up a personal space

* Click *OK*.  The space will be created with a default home page for you to start work on.

Probably you do not have the correct layout with a menu on the left.
* Go to *Space administration* \--> *Choose Layout*.
* Layouts are arranged in a tree, choose the *PERSONAL* layout under the FAI layout and click *Save*.
h4.Permissions

You *must* grant full space permissions to the *wiki-administrators* group
By default a personal space is set to:
* *You*: Full admin permissions.
* *confluence-users*: this is anyone logged in to the wiki: View & comment.
* *anonymous*: this is anyone: no permissions - can't even view your space.

{info:title=why?}Because the wiki-administrators group must have full control over all content in the wiki, but are there mostly to help you.{info}
If you wanted non logged in people (ie anyone) to be able to view your space, *edit permissions* and set *anonymous* to *view*.

* Go to *Space administration* \--> *Permissions* and click on an *Edit permissions* button.
* In the *Groups* section, enter *wiki-administrators* in the *Grant permission to* box, and click *Add*
* Check *all* the boxes in the *wiki-administrators* row, and click the *Save all* button.
If you wanted to further restrict people who can view to just the people in your own commission, unset view for confluence-users and add _yourCommission_-delegates to the *groups* section.

{note:title=If you do not grant this permission}A wiki administrator will simply delete your entire login and your personal space will be irrecoverably deleted with it.{note}
{note:title=Please do NOT}
Grant _any_ *create* or *space admin* permissions to anonymous users, except possibly create comment if really necessary. A wiki administrator will delete these if found, and if repeated your personal space will be irrecoverably deleted.{note}
