Name[edit]

Since when is Wikipedia's engine named MediaWiki? The article is confusing, saying that MediaWiki was written, and then it was renamed to MediaWiki...--Chealer 08:43, 2004 Nov 17 (UTC)

Hyperlinks[edit]

"MediaWiki provides many features beyond hyperlinks for structuring content." The article hardly mentions hyperlinks, not to mention "hyperlinks for structuring content". What's that all about. --Marshall "Unfree" Price 172.56.27.144 (talk) 20:42, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
