You aren't allowed to have entire pages on your user page. 22:04, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

That was me, if you want to put anything on my talk page. -HoboHunter28- (Leave me an owl!) 22:05, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

You'll probably just get a warning but to be safe you should probably remove it from your page. -HoboHunter28- (Leave me an owl!) 22:31, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry about that. It just uses up space, but you're free to write other stuff on your page (just not already established pages) -HoboHunter28- (Leave me an owl!) 22:43, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

I don't know about the policies concerning posting entire articles to your userpage but I do know it causes the page to take forever to load. Userpages are there to tell about yourself, link to your favorite articles, and the like. They're not intended to contain exact copies of whole articles. -Shorty1982 22:45, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
I understand that you weren't doing it to cause trouble. The best way to show your favorites is to simply link to them though (plus that's a lot less work).
Please sign your talk entries with four tildes (~) and when replying to someone put your reply below their message so it is easy to tell what message is a reply to what message. -Shorty1982 22:51, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, there's nothing in the user policy stating anything of the sort. It's just that there's no reason to and we don't understand why you'd want to. One of the main concerns, however, is importing code from the article page that shouldn't be on your user page, such as the {{FA}} and {{Semiprotected}} templates that automatically categorise the page in the Featured Article and Semi-Protected categories. You're not going to get into trouble as long as you abide by the user policy. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 23:03, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
