Disable Category links, External links, ISBN/User/Disambiguation pages to stop cheaters
Most Wikipedia Game rules forbid the use of these links, as it makes the game really easy.
I also disagree; it's not cheating (though I agree with disabling external links, they don't help), since disambiguation/category, etc. links help make the game paths more interesting and creative.
Though I guess we could make a separate game type for it, for those who don't like the usage of them.
I disagree. I think especially disambiguation makes things more fun since the stuff that cross paths on those pages are quite random and require previous knowledge and intention to get to the desired page.
I would like to see this set up as an "Ironman" version of the game, or as optional rules to turn on/off ahead of game.

use it if you think it good……… even tho user SHOULD be disabled.
I like the disambiguation and category links. I think use shows more knowledge of Wikipedia and interesting paths.
