Style Guide Discussions

Linking: The FamilySearch Wiki:Linking article is incomplete.  Thetalk page describes three possible styles.  I believe the first option is more effective. Other opinions?  For information about what is considered acceptable and why on other wikis, see "Further Reading" on the talk page. Lise 18:07, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

For WikiProject Utah, we've had to create some instructions on how to link, also with a guiding principle. The Help: and style guide need these kinds of things. It would be much better for all projects and for new contributors.AdkinsWH 16:38, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
