Tip and a questionEdit

First off, I feel I should tell you that you can add links to Wikipedia by inserting "wikipedia:" (minus quotes) before the link in the double square brackets when editing in source mode. This avoids the text flow-breaking symbol that comes with coding them as external links. Also, if you're not actually changing the text of the link, then there's no need to put anything between the pipe (|) and the closing double square brackets, which has the effect of removing the "wikipedia:" in article view.

Also, might I ask what you seem to have against bold type? You changed most of my uses of it to italic, particularly in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Broken AgeYellowMage (talk) 21:15, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Interwiki Link SyntaxEdit

Hi, just wanted to point out that if you are linking to Wikipedia (or other Wikimedia wikis, such as Wiktionary or gaming wikis), you should be using the interwiki link syntax of

[[wikipedia: <Article name> | <Link text>]]
[[wiktionary: <Article name> | <Link text>]]

or, for Wikia-hosted wikis (such as the Final Fantasy Wiki, for example),

[[w:c:<Wiki name>:<Article name> | <Link text>]]

rather than putting it as an external link, i.e.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/<Article name> <Link text>]
[https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/<Article name> <Link text>]
[https://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/<Article name> <Link text>]

since the difference would be between links looking like this and looking like this (both are to Wikipedia's Main Page, incidentally). I think that the latter looks neater and more coherent, don't you?

Incidentally, if you're using the Visual Editor, then the same thing applies: you just type in "wikipedia:<Article name>" in the "Target Page or URL" box, and the appropriate link text into the "Link Text" box.
