When I use the moderator tool to contact the community team, one of the templates is "user profile merge" (Thanks for adding that btw!)

The template is currently:

Hello,

I'm writing in reference to the Code Review Stack Exchange account:

https://codereview.stackexchange.com/users/31562/simon-forsberg

I think these profiles belong to the same user and should be merged:

Profile 1: {todo}
Profile 2: {todo}

Regards,

Which gets rendered as:

Hello,

I'm writing in reference to the Code Review Stack Exchange account:

https://codereview.stackexchange.com/users/31562/simon-forsberg

I think these profiles belong to the same user and should be merged:

Profile 1: {todo} Profile 2: {todo}

Regards,

The biggest problem here is that for some reason "Profile 1" and "Profile 2" are rendered at the same line, so every time I use this template, I add an empty line between Profile 1 and Profile 2 to make it render correctly.

However, when contacting the community team regarding a merge, I've posted one of the accounts already, why would I need to post the same one again in combination with the other one?

I would suggest changing the template to something like:

Hello,

I'm writing in reference to the Code Review Stack Exchange account:

https://codereview.stackexchange.com/users/31562/simon-forsberg

I think this profile in addition to the profile below belong to the same user and should be merged:

Profile 2: {todo}

  • You can also do [space][space] (basically, add one space) to add the new line. Also your sock puppet profile link is missing from that post ;-) – Mathieu Guindon Apr 11 '17 at 20:19

    But yeah the first link is annoyingly redundant. Kudos for bringing it up. – Mathieu Guindon Apr 11 '17 at 20:31

Good call. Starting with the next build, the template will be:

Hello,

I'm writing in reference to the Code Review Stack Exchange account:

{profile url}

I think the profile below also belongs to this user and they should be merged:

{todo}
