Nifty! This'll come in handy if I can remember to use it. --Ron Burgundy 09:00, 23 July 2006 (BST)

Yeah, it's pretty handy. I just got so tired of typing [[User:SomeUserName|SomeUserName]] over and over again. :) –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 09:11, 23 July 2006 (BST)
Of course just writing [[User:SomeUserName|]] is enough... Wiki will replace it with the proper link, without the User: part. It actually works for all namespaces, so for example, [[UDWiki:Moderation/Speedy Deletions|]] will look like Moderation/Speedy Deletions. But if you check the wiki code, it has replaced the call with the full format. --Brizth mod T W! 09:26, 23 July 2006 (BST)
Wow. I feel a bit stupid now. Um... my template saves a single character? Yeesh, wish I had known that all along. –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 10:01, 23 July 2006 (BST)
Didn't read the help docs, did we? –Xoid STFU! 10:03, 23 July 2006 (BST)
Nope. Or, more likely, yes, but I didn't remember that particular fine point, and never thought to look for it. My programming experience has conditioned me to oftentimes think about "what would be a solution to this problem" before "has this problem already been solved?" –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 10:07, 23 July 2006 (BST)
Suffer from the same problem. –Xoid STFU! 12:01, 23 July 2006 (BST)
