British Sign Language#External links[edit]

Hi I added a new link to a new university based free BSL resource and deleted a link yesterday in the British Sign Language section which you then reinstated. The link I deleted is to a free section promoting a commercial site - can I check if this is now allowed please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.4.89.235 (talk) 10:11, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

86.4.89.235 There are two separate proposed edits here: (1) the adding of a new external link; (2) choosing to delete another external link. Both can be done, with sound reasons. Each should be done on their own merit, and doing both at the same confuses the issues. Whether a site is commercial doesn't have much to do with whether it is useful. As I noted in the partial-reversion[1], I have no idea whether the new UCL link is better, but there seems no reason to delete a previous one... It would help if you could explain your reasons (on the Talk:British Sign Language page) about why the other link should be removed. —Sladen (talk) 10:51, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. This same link was removed by MrOllie in April of 2014, presumably for the reason I queried? If links to useful free material on commercial sites is permitted then there are some that I would like to add that had previously been removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.4.89.235 (talk) 13:03, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. That same link was removed by MrOllie in April of 2014, presumably for the reason I queried? If links to useful free material on commercial sites is now permitted then there are some that I would like to resubmit that had previously been removed because they were on commercial sites, if you could clarify please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.4.89.235 (talk) 16:02, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict) 86.4.89.235 It's good that you've got a list in mind. Please use the Talk:British Sign Language talk page to list each one separately that you'd like removed, or added, with the reason why the action would be appropriate. —Sladen (talk) 16:05, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm unclear wht you mean that I have a list in mind? Also unsure how to enter on the Talk page link, where my comment should go or how I add it? It's a simple question about policy of external links to commercial sites and whether this policy has changed or not please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.4.89.235 (talk) 17:12, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
86.4.89.235: The policy covering external links to WP:EL; generally we try to minimise the number of external links. I had taken your statement above "there are some [links] that I would like to add" to mean that you had a list of some links that you would like to add. Adding a new section/comment at the bottom of Talk:British Sign Language should the same as on this user-specific User talk:Sladen page. Try something like "I would like to add/restore/delete the following external links x,y,z because of reasons a,b,c.". —Sladen (talk) 21:28, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
