Pardon my beginner's question. I see sentences that could be linked. However, by rules, basic users are requested to ask an advanced user:

https://en.wiki.tatoeba.org/art...intro-linking#

Thus my question: what is the best way to "ask an advanced user"? Does one post the request here on the wall? Does one send a message to an advanced user? If so, whom would be the best person to?

Thanks,

I updated the wiki page. It now says:

If you are an advanced contributor, you can do [the linking] yourself. If you are not, please leave a comment on the source or translation to ask an advanced contributor to do it for you. If you find that your requests are not being addressed, you can add the name of an advanced contributor, preceded by the @ symbol, to your comments. You can find advanced contributors on the "Community -> Languages of members" page. It is best to choose one who has been active recently.

You can also add the sentence as a direct translation. The two copies of the sentence should be automatically merged.

Though in case of French, they are only merged if the spaces or lack thereof before any exclamation or question marks also match.
