One of the subjects I am most proud of, despite or maybe because of my lack of contributions to the topic, are the articles relating to TerryP (his article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Pratchett), the Discworld books (and others), and the various characters found within them.
The "Portal" (this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Discworld_books) lists every article linked to the Discworld books.
What do the members of this site think of the coverage? Are there mistakes? Is every topic covered sufficiently according to its "importance"? Do people ever edit these pages, and are they happy with that experience? Let me know - I won't fix any problems you may have, but I can show you how you can.

Sometime, when I try to post a link to a particular item such as this one for Eric: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_(novel) - the brackets around the word "novel" are not recognised as a viable code (the same goes for things like apostrophies) and therefore the link gets broken.
I know that sometimes I can substitute a "%" for a bracket and that will work, but it doesn't make for easy linking.
Is there an easy way to do this? Something like (as with some online news items) a 'link to this article' code would make things easier in cases like this.
