Alternatives

  • There is also the {{U}} template for linking to a user by nickname. You should use U if you want to link to a user in general, and plink if you want to specifically link to their profile page, since U links to the user's Wiki page if one exists.
  • Fenhl is currently writing the {{F}} template for linking to a forum by name. You can use this even if you don't remember the forum's link number.
