Links to Space and Outer space[edit]

Given that Space is the only article to link here, and that Outer space is a link on that page, I do not feel they need to be linked to from here. I can't envisage a way people would stumble here without passing through Space. Hiding talk 19:42, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Someone types "space" when they mean outer space. They come to a page on a different subject, but with a prominent link to this page, promising other meanings. What they're looking for isn't here. That's a poor interface.
Yes, if they read the first six paragraphs there they would find it, but that can hardly be considered accessible. Since this page is a collection of links to space, it shouldn't leave out the two most prominent ones.Michael Z. 2005-10-3 19:56 Z
Fair play. I can't say I agree, but we'll just end up going round in circles. Hiding talk 20:01, 3 October 2005 (UTC)
Well, it's the way it's done on other disambiguation pages, and you can't predict that someone will necessarily come here after reading a particular page. Don't forget incoming links from other sites and Google searches; so this page should be able to stand alone. Cheers. Michael Z. 2005-10-3 23:31 Z
Oh yeah, fair play, sorry, I wasn't trying to be argumentative. Good point on google, actually, but I was thinking it was better safe than sorry, and that I'd be willing to leave alone. Hiding talk 08:58, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
I didn't think you were being argumentative. Just explaining myself, so you didn't think I was being too needlessly stubborn. Michael Z. 2005-10-4 13:34 Z
