Use of multiple accounts

Secondary account template
Using multiple accounts on the wiki is not against our policies or guidelines; however we do insist that any secondary accounts should be identified by placing a link to the primary user's profile. Where this is not obvious in the username itself it should be identified by placing a link to the secondary account on the user's profile page. Use of the {{tl|secondary account}} template is recommended.
Using multiple accounts on the wiki is allowed. All secondary accounts must be identified by placing the {{tl|secondary account}} template in the body of the user page, linking to the primary account. This template cannot be obscured and the bio section cannot be used to declare additional accounts.
Description: Propose rewording to clarify that declaring secondary accounts is not optional, it must be declared on the user page as opposed to in bio section, and that the declaration cannot be obscured/hidden.

Block carry over

Block carry over
Bans from one account generally carry over to other accounts, and other accounts should not be used to avoid a (non self requested) ban on another account. Use of multiple accounts to evade chat bans or site blocks will result in immediate administrative action.
Bans from one account carry over to all other accounts and the use of multiple accounts to evade chat bans or site blocks will result in immediate administrative action.
Description: Suggest more succinct wording when describing carry over of bans to all accounts. Consolidated two points containing duplicative info regarding evasion.


All makes sense to me. I would vote yes to these changes as presented. The Dyre Wolf (talk) 01:27, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

These clarifications will be good for closing some loopholes that exist with the current wording. Don't have anything else to add to them. The Appalachian Mandalorian insignia.png 08:25, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

Yup, I'm also on board with the proposed changes. –FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 14:30, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
