How do you write an internal link with parameters?

I have a stored query from external data and would like to link readers to the semantic internal object that stores the query. However the query is slow to open so I would like a link that will open the page on which the query is run to open in edit mode.

I tried to add &action=edit to the link to the internal object but it didn't open the page in edit mode.

Internal links with parameters are best written with the magic word fullurl, e.g. [{{fullurl:Page|action=edit}} edit Page].

If I understand correctly, you want to take an inline query (Ask) like

{{#ask: [[Category:City]] [[located in::Germany]]
  | limit=3
}}

and get a link to its "edit query" panel. The easiest would be to add limit=0 and let the user click, otherwise you have to make the link yourself like

{{fullurl:Special:Ask|q=...|eq=yes}}

But if you want users to systematically customise your query, perhaps you're actually looking for an InputBox?
