What do I mean by "sloppy"? Basically, in these userspace drafts I often write in a manner that less than accurately expresses what is really on my mind. Hard as it may be, the details of my wording should be taken with a grain of salt. You may have seen signs of this previously on [[User:Eighty5cacao/misc/Aspie notes]] and its subpage.

Interpretation of WP:REPEATLINK

WP:REPEATLINK gives "where the links are in a table" as an exception, so the corresponding rule here may need rethinking. Eighty5cacao 01:57, 6 December 2010 (MST)

  • As I understand it, the preference for repeating links in a table has to do with sortable tables. Tables here aren't sortable yet. Can you find some examples of tables on Wikipedia with links repeated in this way? --Tepples 19:42, 3 January 2011 (MST)
