Usage[change source]

This template provides a way to link to a userpage and display just the username, like [[User:Example|Example]]. This may not help much for a short username like "Example", but it can be more useful with long usernames such as [[User:Guywh0sitsbehindphilip12|Guywh0sitsbehindphilip12]].
