Tip of the day...
How to link to word definitions

Let's say you are writing an article and you want to create a link to the definition of a word the understanding of which is crucial to understanding the article. But in this hypothetical situation, you don't want to link to the Wikipedia article for that word because it would be overkill. Wikipedia has a sister project that presents hundreds of thousands of definitions. It's called Wiktionary. Here's how you would provide a link to the definition of "understanding":

both [[wiktionary:understanding|]] and [[wikt:understanding|]] will look like this:


and link to the definition of the word "understanding".

Notice that the "pipe trick" (|) was used in the links above.

With appreciation to your thoughtful and sensitive navigation of the ship in the Monty Hall case. Mathematicians (of which I used to be one) aren't easy to communicate with, and mathematicians going mathematical and losing everyone else (as well as each other) was one of the key problems here. I think the pushback on some of your original proposals was sound, but regardless I deeply appreciated the combination of pragmatism, challenging questions where you perceived a real issue, and adaptability in the discussion on the proposed decision page, to get around the sticky points in #11 and reach a solution that works for (nearly) everyone.

For dealing with User:J3mm0 in the decisive fashion you did. Sometimes the line between nasty but sane, and just pure crazy is very bright... Cerejota (talk) 07:44, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

To a woman of character:

"Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving."
Thank you very much for your kindness and your understanding and simply being here on Wikipedia.
