Are all those external links really necessary?[edit]

Although I completely understand and sympathize with the reasoning behind inserting every single team's external link into this article, I do not see how this benefits the article in any way. Recommendation: find a master website which lists every team's URL and replace all of those team links with one single master webpage. This would be much cleaner for the article as well. I will ask around on WP:ROBO for comment. - Jameson L. Tai talkcontribs 20:11, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

I had to think about it awhile and do some poking around, but I totally agree. We already have the "DGC-2004 teams" link, and looking quickly, I can't find any discrepancies between their list and ours. There's a basic rule of database design: don't list the same information in two places, because it will inevitably get out of sync, and then people get bad information. Let's put the burden of updating the information on DARPA and on the teams rather than on us. - Dan Dank55 (talk) 22:29, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
Good. In that case:-
