Forums: Index > General > So many red links

Why is everybody linking things that dont exsist on this wiki, such as 'europe", "Levels", stop linking stuff that dosent exist in any way shape or form. There is alot of red links and it would help if you got rid of them. Example Europe, this link is red beacuse there is no article on it, and it would help if you dont do it anymore.

Probably to encourage spam articles or the writter pressume they exist but I haven't seen any in a while. I'll "dered" if I see any.--Mystic Monkey 08:11, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

i think these are article copied from 'pedia. Myself 123 08:15, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Red links are acceptable in some cases, i.e. to encourage the creation of articles that would be appropriate and should be included on the wiki. That's one of the main ways that a wiki expands. -- Supermorff 12:42, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I aggree with supermorff, but recently ive seen alot of images that dont exist, and i spent hours sorting many of these out.--Skylerthewasp 12:57, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I appologise about such problems. I will look into this in a few days, and get rid of any un-necassary "Red-Links" that I notice. SLJCOAAATR Soul 21:45, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I've de-redlinked some pages already to some extent, (Sonic adventure and adventure 2) I should realy look around to find more. Myself 123 21:49, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Not including my list of pages I will make (which I haven't considerd making of late) I think I have one particular red link on my Userpage for Ben Hurst, I just haven't been round doing something about it yet than just dereding it.--Mystic Monkey 23:11, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I think it is mostly a consequence of articles being copy / pasted from Wikipedia. We get lost of redundant Categories that way, too. But anyhow, if you see 'em, just remove 'em. It's not like de-redding is hard. The Doctor... IS IN Molten Scandium 03:13, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
