Additional information

The template is intended to be used in the following namespaces: no namespace specified

The template is intended to be used by the following user groups: no user group specified

Many users own in the Commons just a User Talk page, but no User page.

The template {{Uc}} checks whether the user page exists, and links to it if yes.
Otherwise it checks whether the user talk page exists, and links to it if yes.
Otherwise it links to the special page "user contributions".
If later the other pages are created, it prefers automatically the talk page or user page.
Since existence checks are not possible for other Wikipedias, these checks are performed only when no language code is specified.
