As you probably can imagine, fixing all 151 message

and thatfor I call for your help. As well I wasn't able to fix every link

them now from the English original using the new link guidelines.
I suggest you familiarize yourself with sed. A while back I was
trying to do something pretty similar to this. After a couple dozen
languages I was ready to go insane and left off for a few months.
While it took several hours to figure out how sed worked and run it,
it was a hell of a lot quicker than it would've been for me to finish
it all by hand.
Of course, your job may be a little trickier, since you'll probably
need to run one sed for each specific link that needs replacing, but
something along the lines of
sed -R s/('anontalkpagetext'.*)\[\[([^]]*IP[^]]*)\]\]/\1\2/ Messages*.php
should be a lot faster than manually replacing same in every file.
