FA icon.png I need you all to see Special:Wantedpages - and just look at the amount of red links. Think we should do something about them, guys ?

Thing is, ENX thought that you were supposed to just delete the links from that page, but no editing option appeared... that's becuase that the page doesn't work that way. You click on the link by each red link, and go that page to look at the red link. Note that not all links need to have their brackets removed, as some of these links are about unwritten information on Days/KHII abilities.

Let's set a goal date so that 99% of these links can be removed - say, by the end of this year ?

Keyblade-Blk.png I support! Well, I also helped come up with this project. :P We have a large supply of committed editors to help us with this. With us all, I know that we can do this, easily. Let's get right on this, everyone! ^_^

TALK -
I heartily disagree with that method. If a term comes from the games, it needs to have either an article or a redirect. The only red links that should be deleted are those that are fan-made or unofficial terms.

However, any of these that use the old templates or names for Days weapons just need to be re-saved, so that the new version of the template is loaded. No actual editing necessary, unless the wrong template is being called.

FA icon.png So what's there to be done with the 500-odd red links ? If they don't have anything to link to, then should we just start deleting them from the pages ?

A big part of those links come from user pages and talk pages though, we'd have to go around archives and stuff and that would leave a lot of 'you have a new message in the KH wiki' things across users, which might be quite an annoyance to many.

FA icon.png In that case, if everyone's adamant on deleting the links from the talk pages, I suppose the best place to go to would be MediaWiki:Sitenotice - at least that'll clear some clouds off many users. Goodness me, for the love of 99% of red links to be gone...

The best method to eliminating the reds (that I've found, anyway) is pretty simple. You'll notice to the right of the link is another that says "## links". Clicking on that will tell you exactly what pages link to that topic. Taking at look at the first one, all that's happened is a simple redirect that went wrong. So what needs to happen is one of our Gnomes needs to go through those links, take out Gullwing (Keyblade) and replace it with the correct article name. I have a feeling most of those are either bad redirects or items that need redirects. That way, though, we can know for sure which are genuine needs, which just need a quick and simple fix, and which ones are garbage.

(I know most of you guys up there probably know that one; I'm just explaining for the benefit of those reading this new to the concept of the "Wanted Pages" page.)

Keyblade-Blk.png I shall; I've got a whole weekend of editing to cook up. ;)

@KrytenKoro: I don't understand, just what is it that you don't agree with? TNE's opening message specifically states that not all links need to just have their brackets removed, as some of them are redirects or Days/KHII abilities.
