Youtube link[edit]

Another editor recently added a link to the university's Youtube channel. He or she has edit warred to retain this link. I contend that it doesn't belong because "Wikipedia does not provide a comprehensive web directory to every official website. Wikipedia does not attempt to document or provide links to every part of the subject's web presence or provide readers with a handy list of all social networking sites....More than one official link should be provided only when the additional links provide the reader with unique content and are not prominently linked from other official websites." (from our external links policy). ElKevbo (talk) 21:55, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

I must agree. I fight tooth and nail to have official YouTube links removed from Wikipedia articles that do not deal with YouTube or on specific YouTube videos. The addition of the video may jeopardize the article's GA status as well. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 00:39, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree with this as well. Per the policy quoted above by ElKevbo, the link does not belong in this article. It has somehow been re-added, so I removed it again. Jphillips23 (talk) 03:00, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
The official University of Toronto website has a direct link to its official YouTube page anyways. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 02:50, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
