| Random Page
Each registered user gets ( 'automagically' ) opened a page (if there isn't one) with the following properties:
- if there isn't a writer's list of contributions, then it is inserted as <contributions></contributions>
- for each new contribution a timestamped entry is generated <contributions>..(newentry.date)</contributions>
- for each update of an (oldentry.date) in <contributions>..(oldentry.date)..</contributions> date is updated.
- Every registered user has
- a default and automatically cared for homepage (minimum of creation/administration effort not excluding additional manual edits)
- has a clean overview/protocol of the pages, s/he is engaged ( WikiBlogging can do this )
- Every reader can easily see the profile of interest of the resp. author (minimizing search efforts for (initial) contact/collaboration information)
- Personality is emphasized.
- Focus may shift from content contributions to homepage contributions.
- Logins are emphasized.
- Creating the homepage is often an important first step -- an investment to be made by the user and a first positive editing experience.
- It allows the GodKing a chance to welcome newbies.
Logging and contributions are kind-of available via backlinks from existing homepages, and by checking MeatBall:action=rc&all=1

If the registered authors minimize manual edits of their homepages they can concentrate on the collective Wiki contributions (in which they contribute.) Their original ideas and contributions may be integrated easier in the whole, contrary to spattering them on individual manual-only homepages. This could de-emphasize (blown up egos, i.e) personality.
For this reason, the author moved "emphasize personality" from benefits to "questionable", after substituting "drawbacks" by "questionable". -- FridemarPache
