If you are tired of using the crowded forums where anyone can edit your posts, then there is relief for you. You can create a personal store for users to visit and trade with you.

Setting up a Personal Store

This is a guide for logged-in contributors only. Anonymous users, please create an account to set up a personal store.

In the search bar, type in User:Your user name/Your store name. The store name need not be anything fancy, although titles such as "Store Z-49" and "The Awesome Shop" do make readers interested and may attract more customers. Titles like "Market Stand" and "______'s Shop" will do fine, try a name that will attract people and not something kiddish ie. The Mario Bros. Super Store.

Start creating the new page. Some things you should include in your store are:

  • Your MLN username, preferably including a link to your page. You can use the template {{mlnlink|YourMLNNameHere}}
  • What Items you need the most, and/or what Modules need the most clicking.
  • What Items you have and their prices. Do you sell in Clicks? Other Items? Both?
  • Specify if the shop allows bargaining.

After you are finished, insert the code {{shopnav}} anywhere in your store, but right at the top is the best spot (you will be helping people navigate their way and when yours is in there it will be like free advertisement).


Now you have to make sure that everyone can get to your store. Ask an admin to edit the {{shopnav}} template and add the line so that it will be neat. Thank You

Here is a ie. of what you should do:

| [[User:(username)/(store name)|(store name)]]

Of course, feel free to link your store to your user page and/or talk page.

Shop Acceptance

It is often helpful for visiting users to know whether your store can be trusted. On request, the administrators will inspect your store and its trading history to make sure that it is safe to trade. Remember, deleting text from your store will not prevent the admins from seeing it.

Before applying, it is required that you have:

  • At least five happy customers.
  • At least fifty Mainspace Edits.
  • Been opened for at least one week.

Add the following lines to Template talk:Store:

== Your shop name here (pending) ==
Write something about your store here. ~~~~

Keep checking back to see if your shop is official.


  • Avoid making a system that is too complicated. Users will go elsewhere if they find your shopping system overly complex.
  • Leave a spot for visitors to place offers or buy items. If you do so, be sure to watch the page.
  • Keep the number of pages to the minimum. This is not a requirement, but users will not enjoy constantly clicking on links to view one simple shop. It is best to just have two pages — a page about your store and a page for users to talk about your store or buy from it.
  • Do not try to add sales, raffles, discounts, etc. unless your store is very popular. If you plan on adding lots of features, then make sure everything is centered around a store with excellent customer service and other traits of a good store.
  • Mention your MLN username, or there is definitely no telling who you are trading with!
