Is there any way to distinguish the difference between personal space and site space?

Im my site, some users created their own spaces following site space creation steps. (Similar this question.)

In such cases, not only space creators themselvs, but also visitors confuse personal spaces with site spaces.

Especially, when space owner use documentation theme, it is pretty difficult to know which type of the space.

Is there any good way to distinguish the difference between personal space and site space?

If you hover your cursor over a page link and look at the URL, you'll see that Confluence URLs follow this format: http://host.domain.com/display/Space_key/Page_name

If the "Space_Key" portion of the URL contains a tilde (~) character, the page comes from a user's personal space.

Hi, Dave. Thank you so much for your answer.
Following your advice, I could find which kind of space.

By the way, we use Confluence with non-ascii character (e.g. Japanese), and most of the pages are linked with this rule: http://host.domain.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=nnnnnn.....

So we can hardly to know wich kind of space the target page is located.
