Style guide[change source]

Wikilinking[change source]

As per the manual of style entry on linking, years should not be linked as they do not provide much benefit to the user. Linking of other entries is to be discouraged - most of these links will present themselves in the article's introduction; linking them in the infobox adds clutter and inhibits the speedy retrieval of facts.
