    1. Can add entries here. -- Nickj 07:00, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    2. Great idea and implemented well! -- Aaron Hill 11:51, Oct 19, 2004 (UTC)
    3. Gave useful suggestions on the Bert Newton page. --Robert Merkel 14:01, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    4. This is the coolest thing ever. :) --Golbez 17:18, Oct 19, 2004 (UTC)
    5. Pretty impressive, as long as it never edits a page. The two suggestions at Talk:Amanda Vanstone are "correct" but neither do we want to wikify everything in sight, nor are the suggestions the most pertinent targets if we were to wikify those phrases. ((Why does service delivery service Delivery have a wikipedia article anyway?)
    6. I like all the wikilinks for the Agriculture in Australia, except the argiculture policy one- since that article only discusses subsidies (:/, mabye I'll have a go at it after the thesis) :) --nixie 09:06, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    7. The Ash Wednesday fires suggestions are all good, and highlighted some back-wikilink possibilities too. -- Mark Hurd 14:23, 22 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    8. Nick this seems to be a very cool idea, I have a couple of suggestions that may help. 1. Add the section the text appears on the talk page as it may help find to text your suggesting on a long page. 2. Have a page where editors can add links that probably never should be suggested and have this page autimatically (semi) added to your list of exclusions. This will help if it is ever run wholesale against the whole db as I'm sure you aren't totally complete in your exclusion list and other editors may as well help add to the list.Steven jones 07:40, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    9. Like this a lot. Can be especially useful for wikifying articles in need of cleanup—it'd be great if the script could be run on articles listed on Cleanup at least daily.—Ëzhiki (erinaceus europeaus) 15:45, Nov 24, 2004 (UTC)
    10. I could this as being very useful, especially for new articles. A fair number of suggestions made with the first test seem worthwhile. It will be intersting to see how well it works on the run of 100. Greba 22:13, 24 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    11. Saw the links generated for Triple J... very nice. I think I'll put them all in, except for the Double J redirect. Oh, someone already did them all except the one (Tim Ross) which I checked. Oops ;) Also, The Establishment was an incorrect link. Psychobabble 21:52, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    12. I found this really useful for the archaeology page - thanks! (There were a few incorrect suggestions, but that's hardly surprising - and they were more than made up for by the useful suggestions). --G Rutter 12:19, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    13. Two out of four suggestions on the Alga page were appropriate. To me this is a good ratio for an automated tool. Edwinstearns 15:55, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    14. Good job.--Jirate 17:10, 2004 Dec 1 (UTC)
    15. Hey, this is really cool. :) The signal-to-noise -ratio with the links, as you call it, appears to be great for a bot! --ZeroOne 18:31, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    16. Kudos on the new backlinks section! I was a bit ambivalent about the usefulness of the regular wiki links, but this is really handy for deorphaning articles in a way you might otherwise miss. Ambi 09:32, 3 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    17. Good job. But don't suggest links to measurements. [[User:Neutrality|Neutrality/talk]] 04:03, Dec 12, 2004 (UTC)
    18. Linkbots selections for Agriculture are all ok, except food crop and stock farming which redirect back to agriculture --nixie 02:35, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    19. Many good suggestions for Algorithm. Still wondering how 'intelligent' the robot was in choosing the following suggestion. [[Left-hand side and right-hand side of an equation|right-hand side]] of the expression is assigned to the container (or variable... (link to section)
    20. Well done, I was going to do this, but didn't get round to it. I'd encourage you to release the source. Edward
    21. Suggestions on Attila the Hun were (mostly) spot-on. This is a great idea. —No-One Jones 12:59, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    22. Great suggestions (for the most part) for Audi. Good idea! --SFoskett 15:38, Dec 17, 2004 (UTC)
    23. Cool stuff, and it comes up with surprisingly good suggestions. -- Schneelocke (cheeks clone) [[]] 19:47, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    24. Cool! Even better would be an Approve this suggestion check box and a Do Approved Changes Link or Button.
    25. Agree with previous post. A better interface would present the list of suggestions with checkboxes next to each. An editor could check the valid/helpful suggestions, then click "apply" at the bottom of the list. Davejenk1ns 02:32, 18 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    26. Great. Only added 2 out of 4 suggestions, but all could have been added without major errors. zoney talk 03:15, 18 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    27. I like it. It did a good job on An American in Paris, two suggestions I wikified and the third another user removed as it probably never should have been on the page in the first place.--Sketchee 06:57, Dec 19, 2004 (UTC)
    28. Very interesting. Looks great. PunkPod 14:18, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    29. Well, I like it. But, can you make it pick up redirects? I linked Platonism on Aristotle only to notice a second later that Platonists was already linked (which is a redir to Platonism). Michael Ward 01:49, 22 Dec 2004 (UTC)
      • It's a bug (making suggestions which duplicate existing redirect links in the article), which happened in the early link suggestions. It was fixed on the 9th December 2004, so it now no longer does this. Unfortunately Aristotle was one of the exactly 100 articles done before this date - Sorry :-(. -- All the best, Nickj (t) 04:39, 22 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    30. Excellent idea, seems very effective. Good luck with your work. Dan100 23:01, Dec 23, 2004 (UTC)
    31. Cool concept. Suggestion: Markup is your friend... Have a place in the suggestions that are autoadded to the discussion for people to put a "Y" or "N" flag. Link Suggester should come back every few weeks, check out the flags, and then modify the article to match the settings in the discussion. Link Suggester should mark the links it adds so it never deletes a manually added link even if it previously had suggested the link. Mike Friedman 04:50, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    32. Good idea, but it's too stupid to suggest "to send four hundred thousand Hungarians to" ... -- Toytoy 14:58, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)
    33. Good idea, I added links to Apollo 11. -- Curps 08:11, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    34. I liked it. All links suggested for Atlas Shrugged made some sense, I implemented most of them. - Marcika 19:44, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    35. Loved it! Implemented both suggestions for the Alexis Carrel article. Auric The Rad 04:36, Feb 13, 2005 (UTC)
    36. Four out of five suggestions for arsenic were good. Although it could be a little clearer when the suggested link is not the literal text, but the [[link|text]] notation. Securiger 14:11, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    37. Most suggestions are very good. There are a few really wacky ones, but all in all, I give this bot a passing grade. Denni 03:15, 2005 Mar 20 (UTC)
    38. Good, very good, long as a thinking mind judge. :-) Johan Magnus 00:36, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    39. I like it very much. Suggested useful links for ataxia. --Eleassar777 15:11, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    40. I like this idea a lot. Perhaps a bot to help automate the creation of footnotes/endnotes together with the Fact and Reference Check Project. The problem with FARC is that the article needs to be formatted with a foot/endnote at the end of each fact, then the facts have to be referenced. A bot would be excellent in creating footnotes. --ShaunMacPherson 11:49, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    41. Congratulations on making such a useful program. I found the links suggested for the article on Peter Reith to be quite appropriate. -- Adaj 2 Aug 2005
    42. Very useful! Thanks! Mstroeck 09:31, 29 September 2005 (UTC)
    43. I used it on abbot, though I didn't see it until after I was already linking it without it. I added 45 links I thought were appropriate. The bot suggested 24. Of those, I had already chosen to add 5 of them. I then added 4 more of the remaining 19 - the only ones I would have added before if I had noticed them. So that makes you 9 out of 24. One of the rejected links was pretty funny, but I understand the difference between current technology and Star Trek's "Data".Art LaPella 04:08, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
    44. Great work. We have also been working on a similar (almost the same) problem. We are interested to know if you have done evaluation of your system. We would also be happy to get your comment on our paper Discovering Missing Link in Wikipedia
    45. What a great idea! Tell me if I can donate some CPU power. --Stereo 06:45, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
    46. The links at Talk: Albedo were about mostly good, including many I never spotted before. The ones I liked were electromagnetic radiation, angle of incidence, solar radiation, carbon sequestration, climate model, and greenhouse effect, which are all excellent background links. The ones I didn't like were weather station, natural environment, and indirect effect, which were all being used in a generic or literal sense (...the different natural environment of cities...) Deco 09:25, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
    47. Looked over Albert Schweizer 3 good links had been done already, one cross link no longer in other article, only one completely bogus: love life where the two words just happened to be next to each other. Justinc 13:07, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
    48. Awesome idea, and I can only see it getting better as people contribute "bad" words for it to avoid. Kudos! 14:57, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
    49. An excellent idea. Good work.--Meno25 06:31, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
    50. Just came across this excellent tool. Suggester is the perfect name, don't think we'd ever want a link imposer. Minoir quibble, it suggested a link to Two-stroke cycle when there was already a link to Two-stroke engine in the text but otherwise they were all useful suggestions. Many thanks Mighty Antar (talk) 12:35, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
    51. The suggestions at Politics of Angola were useful. Many but not all were applicable. Great starting point. Ouanor (talk) 04:32, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
