The editing help for comments currently lists a few shorthand links which can be used to link to other sites:

  • [so], [pt.so], [su], [sf], [metase], [a51], [se] – link to the given site. Link text is the site name.
  • [something.se] – link to something.stackexchange.com, if that site exists. Link text is the site name. Use [ubuntu.se] for Ask Ubuntu.

Stack Overflow em Português is the only non-English Stack Overflow site listed, but [es.so], [ja.so] and [ru.so] work as well. Can these be added? Furthermore, if [ubuntu.se] is listed as an exception, [mathoverflow.se] should be added as well. Not many people know that's a valid alias.

Also, it makes sense to rearrange the bullets a bit. The two discussed above should be next to each other, since they serve the same purpose: links to another Q&A site. They should probably be next to [main], [meta] and [chat], while the one about [ask], [answer] (both link to Help Center pages) should be next to the one starting with [help].
