This is a request for a small enhancement. I think it would be good if there was a way to keep links to articles from showing in in their "what links here". What I have in mind is a way to keep links on talk pages and user pages from showing up on the article's "what links here". A good way to do that would be with a colon between the "[[" and the article title. This is already used in two ways: for a category, it keeps that page from being added to the category. For an image file, it makes a link to the file rather than showing the image.
Updated summary. Please use the summary field to briefly describe your proposed enhancement.
I'm not sure why this would be useful. Can you explain your intended use case?
The syntax would also be difficult. What about linking to images and category pages?
The suggested syntax isn't really a good idea, as a link beginning with a colon already has a meaning.
I'm not seeing a use-case here either. What are we trying to accomplish with this that can't be done otherwise? Suggest WONTFIX, barring a convincing rationale.
