Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was reading this part of the FAQs and lost about 2 hours of my life because this endless looping created by visiting the links (the ones in the Common reasons not constructive and too localized)

I am somewhat slow, and it was not until the 243th time that I realized these links where taking me to the same section over and over again.

Can someone look into that and remove the links (or link to somewhere else)?

Note: it seems like this 'issue' exists in other FAQs too (not just in meta)

I strongly agree with your use of quotes around the word "issue". – blahdiblah Oct 5 '12 at 21:38
I have a similar request complaining about those links. They really ought to only be hyperlinked when they're in the box on the question. The two other places they show up, they're either useless or annoying... Also, 2 hours? Really? – animuson Oct 5 '12 at 23:07
Also,… ... I'm not 100% certain what to do in a 3-way duplicate triangle thingy but I think @animuson was first? – ben is uǝq backwards Oct 5 '12 at 23:12
@Ben I think is not that triangular, the request of animuson is different in many ways, but that link you gave looks like a possible candidate (but I am unsure). I will leave this to see what the community thinks – ajax333221 Oct 5 '12 at 23:32
I think it's about time we added a recursion section to the Stack Overflow FAQ. – Shog9 Oct 5 '12 at 23:53
day 3: I have no food left, I am starting to run low on water, but I am very close to finally understand why I keep being redirected to Shog9's comment – ajax333221 Oct 6 '12 at 0:00
