Note that only people who are logged in can see your personal profile information, anonymous users cannot ever see it. You can choose to set your personal space so it can be seen by anonymous users.

h4. Explore the wiki.
* The wiki is laid out in [Spaces] and sub-spaces. Generally a FAI commission will have one top level space and a number of sub-spaces. Wiki users may also have set up their own [personal space|personal spaces].
* The root of all global spaces is the {link-to:dashboard}Dashboard{link-to} and there is a link to this in the _breadcrumbs_ 'trail' at the top of every wiki page.
* You can access users' personal spaces from the main menu: view --> other pages --> people directory.
* Depending on the [groups|User groups] you are a member of you will have more [permissions] in some spaces than others. By default everyone is a member of the *confluence-users* group and by default members of this group have permission to view and make comments on every page. You have total control over your personal space.
* The entire list of spaces in the wiki is:

{subspaces:style=plain|sort=title|addlink=true|displayEmptyMessage=false}

h4. Enjoy!
