If happen to come across this wiki before we manage to properly install the semantic mediawiki extension on our production server, some links may appear broken, e.g:

Property:Expertise (link to the Expertise property page)
Dealwithit.gif (assignment to someone's Image property)

Do not edit these links. This problem should disappear very shortly, and if it persists beyond your definition of shortly, it may help to edit the page, do nothing, and click save, to prod mediawiki to regenerate the links. If nothing works, please notify User:Joel Hedlund (NSC).
