(I am copying this from the en.wikipedia general complaints page at
udio_links_to_work_in_Wikipedia>. It seems like a reasonable request to me. -
Normally, if you put a URL: resource address in [brackets] the wiki server
side process will properly format a buried link for the browser. However,
there are many more URL: resource addresses than just those that begin
with "http:". For example, the wiki server side process does not properly
format the following [pnm://rm.content.loudeye.com/~a-
600111/0676330_0104_07_0002.ra URL: resource], as you can see. If you paste
the URL: resource address
into your browser address window, you will see from the browser reaction how
the wiki server side process should format that pnm: URL: resource address
as a link in the above examples. Could you please add pnm: to the table of
allowed external URL: resource prefixes, such as http:, https:, ftp:, etc.?
Thank you. ---Rednblu 20:17, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Tweaking summary and reclassifying as a configuration issue.
he's asking for this to be added to the config of the en wikipedia, i guess.
Without strong support from the community, this is probably not likely to be
done, however. I see nothing but the request on the WP, no discussion, no comments.
I found this on the General Complaints page, in the course of archiving
sections of that page. it seemed like a reasopnable idea to me, so i posted
it to the Village pump and created a bugzilla entry for it, so that anyoen
favoring it could point to the same entry. I am not sure at what level such
a feature would best be implemented. There may be followup discussion on
the pump, one way or the other.
Give us a permalink to the diff or version of the page with discussion on it,
please, for reference.

For something nonstandard I would generally recommend using an http: or https: link to a web
page hosting the resource (which pretty much always exists for such things). Not only is the
web page more likely to have a stable URL, but it'll likely provide links to the required
