Adding external links without being logged in is broken[edit]

First time I click save page, and the page reloads asking for a reCAPTCHA. After filling out the reCAPTCHA, the page reloads telling me I'm adding to many links in rapid succession and asks me to click save once more if I'm adding something serious. Clicking save once more reloads the page asking for yet another reCAPTCHA, and after that it reloads with the "adding too many links" message again. It continously goes back and forth between the two, and never actually gets to the point where it's saving my contribution. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 06:08, 20 May 2019 (UTC).


Hi. I had an account back in 2009, but it was (rightly) blocked, as I was (at the time) a serial wiki vandal on both Wikipedia and Bulbapedia. I am now a 'good' editor on both sites, and haven't been blocked anywhere for any length of time since 2014. Please unblock me. I'm intending my first edits 'back' to remove Soothe Bell and White Herb from Pokémon Gold and Silver/Hold Items, as they didn't exist in that game, and to create Template:Wp, as you have Template:Bp.-- 18:25, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Unblocked. I don't think we need {{wp}} though. -- Prod (talk) 18:41, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
Personal interjection, but I think a wikipedia link system may be useful. Trig - 18:58, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
We have {{wikipedia}} for high level linking. Beyond that, wikipedia links can mostly go as references. -- Prod (talk) 19:00, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
Not always, and I could have used it in my earlier post. I've gone ahead and created it.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales (talk) (contributions) (email) 20:07, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
A single use doesn't make a template useful. Overall, the preference is not to have the wikipedia links inline using that template, since we want to avoid sending people offsite. We have a partnership with bulbapedia and send lots of links back and forth with each other. We don't have anything like that with wikipedia. -- Prod (talk) 20:10, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
