When you create a freespace profile, you probably intend to use it numerous times in profiles of people connected to it. I use the scratch pad at my Nav Home Page to save the link and avoid having to construct one for each use. If you save the complete working link on the scratch pad, it appears as a link rather than Wiki code. If you try to copy it, you open the freespace page instead of selecting the code for copy. To get to the Wiki code, you have to edit the scratch pad - to me an annoying and time-wasting extra step when I'm on a WikiRoll.
Here's the trick: save the link on your scratch pad in a deliberately broken state. I do this by deleting the first square bracket, such as [Space:Crescent_River_Port_Pilots_Association|Crescent River Port Pilots Association (CRPPA)]]. Now it appears on the scratch pad as code (almost), instead of as a link. When I need it, I copy it off the scratch pad (which I don't have to open for editing), then type one bracket and paste.
The same trick works for Categories, templates, etc.
