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)

An apology, and general comments on my drafting style

Regarding this: Thank you for clarifying what I meant. I didn't mean to favor any kind of elitism (though there does seem to be some distinction here as to which users are "trusted"), and I was knowingly being a little sloppy with the wording.

What do I mean by "sloppy"? In my userspace drafts, especially within the first few edits, 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.

I understand. Sloppy can always be cleaned up later. But as for a recording artist's aliases, I can see making a distinction between someone who has recorded under multiple aliases (e.g. Naoki Maeda or Kyle Ward) and someone who has used only one (e.g. Lady Gaga or BanYa). That's sort of what I meant by linking to trope:DoNotCallMePaul: there isn't a BLP issue, but Miss Poker Face is known to the public as Lady Gaga and only Lady Gaga. --Tepples 14:53, 6 March 2011 (MST)
