Hi, I'm currently writing a fanfic article, and trying to add 4 external links, but I am met with this error

LinkOne.jpg

The links I am trying to add: Link 1: https--:--/-/-www-.-wowhead-.-com Link 2: https--:--/-/-www-.-wowhead-.-com Link 3: https--:--/-/-gamepedia-.-cursecdn-.-com Link 4: https--:--/-/-www-.-youtube-.-com

Is there any reason I cannot provide the links to these obviously known domains? Are they not part of your whitelist? --Portemian (talk) 03:01, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Users can't add links until they have accumulated a certain number of edits. I suggest first building out the fanfic article - which, I should note, will need to be created in your userspace rather than the main namespace - and then adding links later. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 03:12, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

As per https://wow.gamepedia.com/Wowpedia:External_links_policy#Who_can_add_external_links "Exceptions to this include creating a new page". I did not create a new page yet. However the system does not let me create a new page I want if I include the above mentioned hyperlinks. So am I, or am I not allowed to add external links when I am creating a new page?

I can inquire about that exception, but for now create it without the links. Once you have ten edits you can go back and add them. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 09:43, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Yes, please do and thank you, DarkTZeratul. And one more thing, can you guide me on how to create a fanfic article in my userspace rather than the main namespace please? Portemian (talk) 03:15, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Just name your page User:Portemian/XXXX, with replacing XXX by the actual name you want Xporc (talk) 16:55, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
