missing help[edit]

Invalid: The page already provides multiple pointers to the location of this information.

After a long search, I arrived at this helppage. Then, section "How to link" does not mention the option to use a prefix. (like: [[:de:Apollo 11]] = de:Apollo 11 // for wikibooks). -DePiep (talk) 21:03, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

This is not the help page you're looking for. That page is, mentioned in the hatnote overleaf, Help:Interwikimedia links, or, mentioned on the latter page, Help:Interlanguage links. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 23:20, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
No, I am at the right Help page. But the Help fails. Read my point again. This Help is supposed to help me. -DePiep (talk) 23:41, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
It wouldn't hurt for this page to have a "See also" pointer to those place, but we do not need to (and usually have multiple reasons not to) rehash the same material in detail on multiple pages (the most obvious of these is gradual content-forking of the advice).  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  01:30, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
Never mind; they're both already in the see-also section, too. Given that this page twice tells you where to find this information, there is no action item here.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  01:33, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia + Wikiquote[edit]

I'm a little nervous my work will be undone so forgive my abstraction, but I thought it might be potentially valuable. On an article about a living person who is known for using catch phrases and famous quotes there is a short list. I've started adding citations for when they used those famous quotes, as well as credit to the famous name with Wikipedia link, and then after the linked name another reference to the Wikiquote page of that famous name. Something like so:

  • "Fool me once..."(ref /ref) ~ ((George Bush))(ref Bush /ref)

I hope you can understand what I mean, and that this format is reasonable, and perhaps either as is or better modified it might be worthy to include in the style guide. ~ JasonCarswell (talk) 23:52, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
