Can I change the background color/text font/text color of my user wiki page, & if so, how?

- You might try changing your P tag to a DIV tag, with margin:-1em and padding:1em (because its parent has padding:1em), and put everything in there including your image. P tags create block elements that usually come styled with extra padding and other styling; DIV tags create block elements that are pretty thoroughly generic, no padding, no styling, nothing -- which you can then build on. Apologies if you knew this; I saw the P acting like a generic container and I thought I'd mention. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 14:58, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
- I misspoke about the margin being -1em. The container's padding when editing the page is 1em, but the container on the page itself,
div#content.mw-body, has a padding of 1.25em 1.5em 1.5em 1.5em (so you could use a margin:-1.25em -1.5em -1.5em -1.5em). But that particular padding is subject to change at the webmaster's fancy, so just be aware of that. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 15:11, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Also how can I remove a thumbnail's margin?

- You can check out Wikipedia:Extended_image_syntax for all the fiddly details about wiki image syntax.. what you might try is removing the 'thumbnail' parameter from what you have, and just specifying the size and alignment. If you do that, though, you lose the caption. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 03:15, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
So say I made an edit, which I intended to mark as minor, but forgot.
Is there any way to do so later?

- I think the answer is no, you can't. In practice that's no big deal though. I think the only practical effect it has is on people's watchlists, those who choose to ignore 'minor' edits. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 03:15, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
