I think that magiclinks are an excellent feature, but I wonder if there might be room for a few more.

In particular, I would like to see magic links for the different sections on the What kind of behavior is expected of users? page.

I would love [be-nice] to be replaced with Be nice and [self-promotion] to be replaced with Avoid overt self-promotion (with appropriate page anchors being added to the page)

Would others find an extension of the magiclinks feature useful, and if so, what links would you like to see?

    What about a [skeet] magic link? – Oded Jul 4 '13 at 10:36
  • Ignore this comment. just testing a few magiclinks... faq edit Stack Overflow [meta] Mathematics I'm done for now. – hjpotter92 Jul 4 '13 at 10:43
  • @hjpotter92 - Yes, on meta the [meta] magiclink doesn't work but the [main] does and vice versa. – Mark Booth Jul 4 '13 at 10:46

There are already a large collection of items that can be linked in the FAQ help system using magic-links. While these links still work, everything is a little discombobulated right now there is an outstanding request to update the magic links. This is partially done in that [help] works instead of [faq] but incomplete in that all the deep linkable sections have not been updated yet.

Yes, I agree it would be nice if the individual sections were linkable with their titles, but I think it should be done matching the URL of the help pages. [help/deleted-answers] for example should create a titled link Why and how are some answers deleted?.
