There is currently a RfC open on Meta regarding "requiring those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business."
Note this is to apply to Wikipedia and not necessarily other sister projects, this is only to apply to websites where people are specifically advertising that they will edit Wikipedia for pay and not any other personal, professional, or social media accounts a person may have.

Consultation on the creation of a separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS[Gāi nguòng-mā]
New user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS[Gāi nguòng-mā]
Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[Gāi nguòng-mā]
as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the
interface-admin (介面管理員) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.
