HyperGates and the HyperGrid in Layman’s Terms. « Talvin MuircastleI have been experimenting with a variety of HyperGates, scripted objects that trigger a teleport around the HyperGrid. The “Classic” HyperGate is made to look like a StarGate from the movie and TV franchise. I have always felt a little bothered by that one: sooner or later, I figure, the people who own the rights to that image are going to take notice and some sort of resolution will be found. (Anybody’s guess what that resolution will be.)

Manual of Style (linking)Linking through hyperlinks is an important feature of Wikipedia. Internal links are used to bind the project together into an interconnected whole. Interwiki links bind the project to sister projects such as Wikisource, Wiktionary, and Wikipedia in other languages; and external links bind Wikipedia to the World Wide Web. Appropriate links provide instant pathways to locations within and outside the project that are likely to increase readers' understanding of the topic at hand. When writing or editing an article, it is important to consider not only what to put in the article, but what links to include to help the reader find related information, as well as which other pages should carry links to the article.
