White space between paragraphs - tech & format stds

The section Technical and format standards advises the following:

"Separate multiple paragraphs with whitespace: If a single post has several points, it makes it clearer to separate them with a paragraph break (i.e. a blank line)."

I have found recently that when I try to do this on talk pages, no white space appears, no matter how many times I hit <enter> to create blank lines.

Yet I see here, in this post, that's not the case. What is happening? When I use this new editor, I usually can't add that white space. Longer discussions, especially those involving more than one reply to a single post, can become difficult to read, and identifying distinct posts can be difficult. Thanks!

Can I delete my comment from the archive?

The wiki rules say: Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines#EDIT

Striking out text with <s>...</s> or {{strike}} or marking text as deleted with <del>...</del> constitutes a change in meaning. It should be done only by the user who wrote it, or as otherwise provided in this talk page guideline.

Moving edits to closed discussions: A discussion which has been closed with the {{subst:Archive}} or similar template is intended to be preserved as-is and should not be edited. Subsequent edits inside of an archive box should not be removed for this sole reason, but may be moved below the box to preserve the integrity of the closed discussion.

There is a contradiction. Admins. Can anyone give a definitive answer? LandsGates (talk) 09:05, 1 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
