Just curious... The 'three languages' you mention are Karma, BRZRK, SIG and TMCB? The image of one pigeon scratching its head somehow comes to my mind. Furthermore, isn't Ans yours? Alas, another pigeon wondering where to spend the night.

On a more serious comment, please don't use wiki user pages in articles. That's the convention we've always followed: to point to an article about the author, not to the user page (regardless of whether the article itself exists). If that author happens to be in this wiki, then the author's page can point to it. See e.g. Chris Pressey, Gregor Richards, Ørjan Johansen, Pedro Gimeno, etc. --pgimeno 17:23, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I haven't updated my user page in a while, I will fix that problem. I guess I never really noticed that convention. I will correct that, sorry. --Revcompgeek 20:57, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Not everyone follows this convention. See AlphaBeta, LNUSP, Velato, and REGXY to name a few. --Revcompgeek 21:32, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't think pgimeno's opinion is the consensus. We do not agree on all details of the convention, see Esolang talk:Authors for previous discussion. But mainly, both links to user pages and links to real name articles are allowed, with the latter preferred at least if they exist. Using nicknames for main space articles like you just did is a bit unusual here, I think. --Ørjan 22:56, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Would you suggest i remove the article i just created and only link to my user page? That made more sense to me in the first place. --Revcompgeek 23:22, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
