I have noticed that in the Wiki's, every time a linkable name comes up, it is usually linked, even if it was previously linked.

I am moving to make it explicit style that you link the first time a word is encountered in a section and then not thereafter for the same section. Doing this keeps the sections easier to read and stylistically more appealing.

Of course, people will won't know about the style definition many times when they enter articles, but I volunteer to help edit articles in conflict with this to correct them.

Feedback please.

^this is already the style we use here. However links to episodes are excluded from the rule and linked everytime when they appear in an article. -- Ⓚⓞⓑⓘ 18:06, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

OK, I read the style docs and didn't see it mentioned; coupled with the large number of articles that do not follow the style, I had assumed that the rule was not implemented.

I will make changes as I see them.

Thanks for the follow up.
