User generated sources and YouTube videos[edit]

I've removed the following as references because they are just links to discussion board forums or personal websites and, therefore, do not seem to be acceptable as reliable sources per WP:UGC

  1. "Topica Email List Directory" - links to some archived version of an email; Information may be true, but is the author a recognized authority.
  2. Shogi Pineapple - link given in article is dead, but this archived version shows that it is just to some online discussion board. Again information may be true, but are any of these people recognized authorities.
  3. "Lucky Dogs Games" - links to personal website, which may contain copyrighted images and other information.
  4. "Rules and Manners of Shogi – 81Dojo Manual" - links to an open Wiki which seemingly can be edited by anyone who registers for the site.
  5. "The Basic Rules, par. 2" - links to personal website which apparaently is reproducing material written by another person.
  6. "Grades and Handicaps" - links to archived page for online forum/personal website
  7. "Shogi Rules" - links to archived page for online forum/personal website

I have also removed the following links to YouTube videos per WP:YOUTUBE because for possible copyright considerations. Not only regarding the videos themselves, but also the YouTube video appearing on the right side of the page which also may be copyrighted.

  1. "How to play Shogi(将棋) -Lesson#15- Repetition ('Sen-nichi-te')"
  2. "How to play Shogi(将棋) -Lesson#16- Impasse"

All of the above was done in good faith and I feel in accordance with WP:RS, etc. If anyone feels that any of the above deserves to be re-added, then please discuss. Thanks in advance. - Marchjuly (talk) 05:59, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
