What's the policy of having a main-namespace article link to someone's userpage? I've never seen this happen anywhere else on any encyclopædia. It would be the equivalent of a comprehensive guide to different bird species, under the entry for 'robin', casually mentioning that one of the authors (with a cross-reference to the 'about the author' page) happened to have once received a Christmas card with a robin on its design. This may be true, but not of interest to the readers of an encyclopædia. Calcyman (talk) 13:03, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

I don't think there's any explicit policy saying you're not allowed to do so, however I do remember Dave Greene saying it's considered bad practice. Ian07 (talk) 13:51, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
