In a wiki system, the verb userfy refers to the act of moving a page from the "Main" namespace (which is reserved for articles) to userspace. Typically, this would be the userspace of the person who created the page or showed interest in working on it.

This procedure is often used to let an editor work on a draft of an article while the mainspace article is deleted or protected. Once the user is done, the draft can be submitted to editor review to determine whether or not it should be moved back into the mainspace.
