Very few people have permission to post links on this board. However, you could tell the person to go to Wikipedia.com and tell the search term you used to find the information.
Is it true that I'll never be able to post a link here on Jiskha?
I've tried it a few times when people had Q's about stuff but it hasn't worked. It is quite difficult to have to go and summerize a page in say Wikipedia and post here to answer someone else's question.
Oh..okay...but if it was on another site that would be totally useless...
(I guess I'll NEVER be able to post here right Ms.Sue?)
Another thing we do sometimes is to recommend the student go to Google and then tell him/her the exact search terms we used to find a site.
You're welcome to post here. Your answers are very helpful and much appreciated. To keep this board safe for everyone, though, Jiskha has wisely decided to limit the people who are permitted to post links.
Okay thanks Ms.Sue
(but seriously I highly doubt I'm a danger unless it's to myself XD and as you have seen I at least try to help where I can =))

is,,,,is Ms. Sue okay,,,,
I want to know HOW to post a QUESTION...
Not post a link! PLS!
Yes, it is true that only a few people have permission to post links on the Jiskha board. However, that doesn't mean you'll never be able to post a link here. The restriction is in place to ensure the safety and quality of the board. Jiskha wants to prevent spam and inappropriate content.
If you come across information on another site, such as Wikipedia, that you think would be helpful in answering a question, you can still provide that information. Instead of posting the direct link, you can explain how to find it. For example, you can recommend the person to go to Wikipedia.com and tell them the search term you used to find the information. This way, you can still share useful resources without posting the actual link.
It's important to respect the policies and guidelines set by Jiskha in order to maintain a positive and safe learning environment for everyone. Your effort to help others is appreciated, and you can continue to provide valuable answers by summarizing relevant information or guiding others to useful sources.
