Keyblade-Blk.png Across the Wiki, I've seen links that are in possessive form written in two forms:

I think that we should just decide on one format for links in their possessive form. Personally, I prefer the latter of the above two formats, just because it singles out the link. Please leave your opinions so that the necessary changes can be put into effect.

I like the second, because it has simpler coding.

I prefer the first one, looks neater. Plus, Ultima spent a good ammount of time making links look like that, why not just continue with that?

Keyblade-Blk.png Even if Ultima spent time doing possessive links the first way, I have changed MANY possessive links to be in the second form, because I have thought that it looks neater.

yeah, i've noticed that.

though i don't know how that's neater than the first option (which i choose)

Ultima - Cake and grief counseling will be available at the conclusion of the test.
Personally, I prefer Sora's. It's mainly because Sora's makes it look like only half a word is being linked.

I agree with Yermom, Neumannz and Ultima. It doesn't look neat when only half a word is linked.

TerraCharm.pngDefinitely the second one. The coding, as Kryten so eloquently put, is simpler. Plus, the pages are not titled Sora's or Riku's or Xigbar's. While the actual appearance of an unlinked letter or two may seem visually unattractive (sorry, Wiki Fairies), this is what is correct. I believe that now makes it 4 to 4.

Techcnically, both are correct. The coding (even if it's simpler) is not what appears in the final product, which is the page itself. The coding may look better but Sora's looks uglier than Sora's >.>

Keyblade-Blk.png "Uglier" really is just an opinion, Yer mom. It can be seen either way, mainly depending on what you consider the pros and cons of each format.

Eternal Nothingness XIII - Terra Master Symbol.png I'm not afraid of what the darkness holds now. Even if you do wrest control of my heart from me, even if you cast me into the deepest, darkest abyss, you'll never sway me from the one cause that pushes me to keep on fighting. Whatever the cost, I'm ready to pay it.
TALK - There's darkness within me... So what does that matter? I know I'm strong enough to hold it back. — 02:48, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png Pros would be they both link to the same page. Cons would be the general visual attraction. I personally don't give a damn if Sora's looks ugly or not. As I said before, it's SORA, not SORA'S. The linking of a possessive seems very unprofessional to me, and if that's too strong, just sloppy in general.

You think it looks sloppy? It's not like we're doing redirects for every conjugation, suffix, and contraction. It seems to me it's just courtesy to the user to have the whole word as the link instead of a fragment, even if the fragment is the entire article name.
