Unused links[edit]

Hi, I noticed you were removing a few red links from articles as "unused links", e.g. Seven Canthan Spears. Red links are (usually) actually a good thing for a number of reasons:

  1.  They help us spot where an article doesn't yet exist but should do – so if a topic gets enough red links it gets pushed to the top of Special:WantedPages.
  2. When the article finally is created we can check Special:WhatLinksHere to backfill any information from any sources that reference that page.
  3.  They encourage contribution – it reminds readers (who we should always think of as potential contributors) that there's always more to add to the wiki.

In general, red links help the wiki grow. They should really only be removed when they link to something that you're certain that the wiki shouldn't have a page for. Santax (talk · contribs) 11:34, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I'm removing only links to things that I'm sure do not deserve page, don't worry. If you look at those I removed, it was a name for elite guard of the long dead Canthan emperor, different name for Kryta, a name for a group of NPCs we do not group together and several move remnants. I don't think any of those deserve their page at all.
I understand that red links are helpful, but if Special:WantedPages is flooded with such unimportant things, the truly important will be lost among it all. DJemba (talk) 12:47, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
