User contributions is a tool that quickly allows you to view the contributions of a specified user. You can view the contributions with 20 shown on each page, 50 shown, 100 shown, 250 shown, and 500 shown on one page. However, you can change the URL so you can get a custom number of contributions to display on one page. If a user has not made any edits yet, their contributions page will appear as a red link when being linked to. When you are logged in, if you click on your username in the top left corner, a link to your contributions is the 5th item on the drop down list, with only a log out button after it.
