Researching genealogy is much like figuring out large, complex software, which I did professionally for over 35 years. As a geographer, the connections between families and their migrations are fascinating.
My ancestors lived in Central New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut and Iowa.
Surnames include: Sands, Ayer, Salisbury, Whiting (formerly Whiton), Cornish, Burk, Spinning, Stoner, Scranton, Sanford, Reed, Toepelt (Tapelt, Taplet, Taplett) and others.
Currently working on Sands with Ayer and Bradbury connections.

The short answer is no we do not use a wiki markup, such as [ url clickMe ] on a G2G question, answer or comment.
When you ask a question, answer a question or post a reply a new box opens and at to top it has the featured to add a URL to text. or to copy a URL address and paste it to the box, attach a picture, bold, italic and more.
I suggest you go to the Weekend Chat click comment, as a question and then see the features offered in the box that opens, f you do not want to use the box after entering info simply click cancel.
Later when I have time I will see if I can find or create a copy of the box as I call it.

Have you sent a request to be added to the profile(s) trusted list for Sands-1683 and Sands-1684 explaining how your related and would like to add sources and edit the profiles?
Have you read the Help Pages on merging Profiles? Click here: Merging Help.
I have proposed the merge and have not received a reply of the merge being done or accepted. If the profile manager does not respond the the merge is approved by default in 30 Days.
Both profiles are open profiles and since you have agreed to the Honor Code you can add and edit open profiles. Please add a comment on the profile as to what you add/edit and the sources you have added to confirm your information.

I have initiated and proposed the merge of the profiles for Sands-1684 and Sands-1683. They are clear duplicates.
The profile managers have been notified of the proposed merge. After the merge is done then yo .
Sands-350 appears to be a different person than the above two. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sands-350
After the merges you need to clean up the remaining profile, edit, add sources, remove second bio and sources section for Sands-1683 as it is a open profile.
Thank you, David ~ Wiki Mentor
