Link your accounts both ways[edit]

I'm glad you've finally created an account. I noticed that you also created another account for edits done at school. This may be a legitimate reason for having multiple accounts, but to avoid the appearance of sockpuppetry you should link those accounts in both directions on their User pages. You've already linked that account to this one, but have not linked this one back to that one.

You need to be extra careful when using multiple accounts, especially since you like to experiment with exotic wiki markup that you don't understand well enough and frequently damage pages with your edits. If one of these mistakes results in a block on one of your accounts and you then use the other account to edit the same page, that is sockpuppetry by definition and you risk more severe consequences. You don't want to repeat the problems you had on Wikipedia! – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 19:08, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

One more thing: You've used __NOINDEX__ on this account and its talk page. Perhaps you have an innocent reason for doing so or were just experimenting, but it could give the impression that you're trying to hide your account, which is something sockpuppet masters typically do. I highly recommend you allow your pages to be indexed, as virtually all pages on the wiki are. – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 19:19, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Your user page has an unclosed HTML tag[edit]

On your userpage you have an unclosed HTML tag. The font tag at the start of the page which applies the "times" face, is never actually closed. This messes up the rest of the webpage too, like the header menu and side panel. I've explained how that works in Minecraft_Wiki:Projects/Cleanup_open_tags. Please make sure you always close all HTML tags on all pages. I'd fix it myself, but you've requested on-page to ask for permission before editing your page. I've already fixed this on some of your other pages of both accounts, see their page history here and here. – Jack McKalling [ User page Talk page Contributions ] 19:47, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

I added a closing font HTML tag in my userpage. Psl85 Talk 14:22, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
I noticed, thanks :) But now I notice on your user page that each section also adds a new open font tag. That way closing one at the bottom doesn't necessarily fix the problm. – Jack McKalling [ User page Talk page Contributions ] 14:28, 7 March 2018 (UTC)


1. Although you do have the right to revert undesired changes made to your talk page, I think your rule #7 above is harsh. People innocently forget to add their signatures sometimes, and the {{AutoUnsigned}} and {{Unsigned}} templates are provided to correct the problem.

2. Your "Click here to leave a message" msgbox doesn't work because in an external link (like [<URL>]), the '&'s are assumed to be plain text instead of part of the URL syntax, so they are translated to '&amp;' to prevent them from being interpreted. You can fix it by using {{fullurl}}. In this case you could code it as: {{fullurl|User:Psl85|action=edit&section=new|text=Click here to leave a message}}.

3. The reasons I called your recent signature change "ugly" are that (1) there is too little contrast between the text and background colors, which makes reading harder, (2) there is too much contrast between consecutive parts, which jars the brain and looks childish, and (3) using a different font size disturbs the line spacing, which leaves scattered whitespace where it doesn't belong. That makes the whole page harder to read, because whitespace between lines usually represents a thematic break such as a change of topic. If you just keep the standard font size and reduce the saturation of the background colors it would look much better. To reduce the saturation, use a paler color such as palegoldenrod (see here for a handy list of color names), or if you're using an unnamed color, make the amount of all components fairly high. For example, instead of #008000 try #C0FFC0. The rule used for web page design is that text should be highly saturated (usually black or white) and backgrounds should be much less saturated. – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 15:43, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Auldrick I fixed the broken link, and changed the ugly signature to  Psl85  T  C  to make my signature cooler and the userpage will I make even cooler. Thank you for notifying!  Psl85  T  C  17:12, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
