 **Example:​** Let's say you want to put the sentence, "​[[offtopic:​Jared]] has worked extensively on (link) DoD". Because the article is called "​Decades of Darkness"​ and not DoD, you need to word the link as: <​nowiki>​[[timelines:​Decades of Darkness#​DoD]]</​nowiki>​. It will then appear as "​[[timelines:​Decades of Darkness|DoD]]"​. ​   **Example:​** Let's say you want to put the sentence, "​[[offtopic:​Jared]] has worked extensively on (link) DoD".

 ====== Discussing Wiki Articles ====== ====== Discussing Wiki Articles ======
  
-Like on all good wikis, each page/​article on this wiki has an adjoined discussion page, where wiki editors can express their questions, thoughts on the article, etc. The only rule in these discussions is to be civil and always sign your edits and contributions (using the automated wiki user sign button), in order to help other users keep track of major changes. Note that, unlike on Wikipedia, you don't have to comment on every single edit and contribution you make to the main wiki article. In addition to discussing the wiki's articles directly, you can always ask for wiki-related help and advice in the [[http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​discussion/​forumdisplay.php?​f=3|Help and Feedback]] forum, particularly in [[http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​discussion/​showthread.php?​t=322235|this thread]]. (The wiki originally had its own separate forum, but this was merged in December 2013 with the Help and Feedback forum due to low average traffic.) ​+Like on all good wikis, each page/​article on this wiki has an adjoined discussion page, where wiki editors can express their questions, thoughts on the article, etc. The only rule in these discussions is to be civil and always sign your edits and contributions (using the automated wiki user sign button), in order to help other users keep track of major changes.
