Wikilinks in text[edit]

Thanks for validating The Rosary (Forrest). I just want to bring up the links you are adding as I left them out deliberately. It is my understanding that linking to Wikipedia in text isn't desirable. Based on WS:Links and WS:ANN it would appear that, while links to WS Author and mainspace pages are okay, linking to Wikipedia is only okay if there is already a separate copy of the work that doesn't have the wikilinks in them. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 19:26, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

@Beleg Tâl: You're right. I was operating on something I had been told earlier elsewhere, which indicated such links were acceptable, but this is apparently a different situation. I skwewed up, I'll start fixing them now. John Carter (talk) 19:35, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

I really LIKE this comment[edit]

"I was myself thinking about the FT process. Because I was thinking maybe one featured text per month might not be particularly impressive to first-time viewers of the main page. Is there any sort of process out there to determine which "verified" works are good enough to meet FTC requirements, and, I suppose, although this probably will create more trouble than it is worth, particularly considering that right now there aren't enough featured text candidates, and particularly if there were any sort of clear-cut way to determine whether something met FTC standards, might there be any way to alternate the selection of featured texts more frequently, even if that meant using, for instance, short stories, or really long articles in journals or encyclopedias, or similar works?"

I'm not sure I've formatted this comment right, but I really like your comment about bringing multiple FT pages to the main page in Wikisource. But I'm not sure where the manpower is to come from for Wikisource administration and editing. From what I see, it's an obscure website for various nerds. [I happen to be a bit of a nerd, so I don't take nor intend to give offense using the word "nerd".] I don't know how to fix this Wikisource problem. But I'm glad you're working on it!! :) Outlier59 (talk) 01:25, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Dictionary of Mormonism[edit]

Rather than listing every entry in Category:Mormonism alphabetized as beginning with "A", it might be wise to sort them alphabetically by the entry headword (title) instead. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:59, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Actually, I'm not listing them all in that category, but you're right. John Carter (talk) 22:23, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
