Your reversion of my edit to "Andromeda Stories"[edit]

Greetings and felicitations. I noticed that you reverted my edit to Andromeda Stories, and am wondering way you feel that I added an "unneeded extra link". The article's info box includes the film adaptation of Andromeda Stories, for which there is no stand-alone article, so it seems to me that the A.S. article also implicitly covers the film, and therefore a link to the ANN Encyclopedia's entry for the anime is completely pertinent.—DocWatson42 (talk) 06:16, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

The ANN encyclopedia articles are linked to each other therefore the extra link is unneeded. – Allen4names (contributions) 14:36, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
But that is not apparent to the casual Wikipedia user, who may pass the manga link by because it (apparently) does not relate to the anime. Placing the anime link in the Wikipedia article makes it clear to the user that there is a specific entry in the ANN Encyclopedia, something that is not always the case.—DocWatson42 (talk) 04:23, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Hellooo?—DocWatson42 (talk) 00:14, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
I take your continued silence on this matter as tacit agreement and will re-add the link in question in the near future.—DocWatson42 (talk) 22:42, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Don't forget to add the kitchen sink and all the other reindeer. You do want Wikipedia to be what? – Allen4names (contributions) 02:53, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I am a little annoyed at myself as I have not been logged in as often as I should. I should have noted that there are no "manga" links but links to web pages. If needed the noparen property can be used with {{Ann}}. If you are going to add a bunch of ANN links you should not neglect to add IMDb and BCDd links (et al.) as well. I would not per WP:NOT and WP:LINKFARM. – Allen4names (contributions) 03:04, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
I want Wikipedia to be user friendly. And I would not add links to the Internet Movie Database or the Big Cartoon Database because the former isn't very useful for most anime (no Japanese language support and often non-Hepburn romanization, among other things) and the latter merely licensed the second edition of The Anime Encyclopedia, so linking to the last would be better. In any case, the third edition of TAE will be released in December, which will make the BCDb obsolete.—DocWatson42 (talk) 23:21, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
"User friendly" does not quite answer my question. What should Wikipedia be? An online encyclopedia? Spam site for ANN? What? I should also note that I can not justify excluding the other links (including "et al.") if there are to be a bunch of ANN links in articles (up to 4 for Andromeda Stories). – Allen4names (contributions) 07:00, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Presumably this discussion is at an end. If you wish to continue it may be best to do so at WT:ANIME. – Allen4names (contributions) 03:07, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
