If there's a list of articles on the right hand side of your user page, don't worry! You didn't do anything wrong. These are your followed pages. Unfortunately, they can be a bit of a nuisance, overlapping onto other text. If you'd like remove this list from your user page, please do the following:
- Go to your preferences on the followed pages tab.
- Check the box that says Make my followed pages list private.
- Save your changes.
This should remove the list from your user page. If you wish to hide the list on everyone else's page you can modify your personal skin files. Monaco is the default skin, so if you are using that skin, then click here then save your page to complete the installation. If your skin is Monobook, click here instead. Note that this will not hide your list for other users, since the changes made to your personal skin files only affects what you see when you are on your account. Your followed page list will only be hidden to another user if you have it set to be private, or if they have modified their skin files as well.
