Yes, first person commenting on talk page of user/article/category/template creates it.

For an individual person, on their user page at Wiki and user page at openstreetmap.org.

6 months sounds like a complete overkill, adding link on user page takes minutes - 
and is necessary only if for some reason you have different username.

BTW, this change would be actually introduced by
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/change_vote_counting_rules
that went through RfC with vote starting tomorrow.

I have not noticed it before that such blank accounts without wiki edits
and no corresponding mapping user account are actually active in votes.

I added "Impact" section to make it more explicit
