Overlinking[change source]

This makes too many links on the page which can be confusing to a reader.

  • You do not need to link many of the common words, especially if they are on the Wikipedia:Basic English combined wordlist. In the intro paragraphs there were some of these words linked including: minute, story, based, concept, kiss, dream, disappear, poem, window.
  • Do not use a complex word (even if linked) if a simple word will do. For example in the intro there is "witness" when the word "see" will be suitable, or armchair when chair is suitable.
  • Only link once. So the word choreography is linked in the intro, it does not need to be linked again in the article. There are many other examples.

Don't undrestand it[change source]

Why to have even Wikipedia's dictionary links for ordinary words? Wiktionary is too amateuric to be ever referenced.--Sunil of India (talk) 02:31, 31 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please clarify what you mean. Personally, I find your statement absurd; how is Wiktionary "amateuric"? Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 17:27, 7 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think he means it is low quality and unprofessional. I completely disagree. It may not have great coverage at the moment but the definitions are mostly very good. DJDunsie (talk) 12:22, 1 August 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
