Addenda

1.0

User pages/sandboxes

User pages/sandboxes
Current
Pages in the "User" namespace are the property of the user they belong to. Users may edit their own as they see fit, so long as the content aligns with current conduct policies. No other users are allowed to edit user pages of another without permission.
Proposed
Pages in the "User" namespace are the property of the user they belong to. Users may edit their own as they see fit, so long as the content aligns with current policies. Users are not allowed to edit the user pages of others without permission, with the exception of rights holders making routine maintenance edits.
Description: The addition allows for routine maintenance edits of talk pages by members of staff, such as fixing links, redirects, broken templates etc. Minor note, removed the word "conduct" as content should align with all policies, not just conduct policy.

Talk pages

Talk pages
Current
Users are not allowed to remove comments from user talk pages or blank them, other than to remove insults/harassment or by archiving it (allowed after 40 posts or 32kb of talkpage content). Administrators need easy access to a users' talk page history. When in doubt if a post can be removed, consult an administrator. If a user talk page is blanked by a user, an admin has the right to revert the blanking unless it was done to remove harassment and/or insults. User talk pages are covered by the edit war policy. They may be deleted at the request of the user they belong to.
Proposed
Administrators need easy access to a users' talk page history, therefore users are not allowed to remove comments from user talk pages or to blank them, other than to remove insults/harassment. User talk pages are covered by the edit war policy. Contact an administrator with concerns regarding talk page content and/or removal. Talk pages may be archived after 20 posts or 16kb of talk page content.
Description: The wording suggested here aims to clarify the unclear section regarding deletion requests. The second change reduces the archive threshold, which will make it easier to manage talk pages when messages are high in volume.

1.1

Use of multiple accounts

Secondary account template
Current
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.
Proposed
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
Current
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.
Proposed
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.
