I have tried to link to [[Special:Userlogin&type=signup]] but this never works. MediaWiki returns with a "No such special page" error. Ironically when I enter this link directly in the address bar there is no problem. Is there anything that I need to do in order to link to the account creation page from within articles?

Also, I was curious about donations and have tried finding information about this on the Wikimedia pages but came up with nothing. Specifically I'd like to know if it is possible to donate directly to MediaWiki development, instead of say having my money spread out to Wikipedia, servers, bandwidth, etc.
