Against linking to "wikidata" page instead of foreign-language Wiki page[edit]

Edits from 26 January 2017 changed links to foreign-language Wiki pages into links to www.wikidata.org pages (example: Noi Podgorny, Revision as of 22:59, 26 January 2017). This is very technical and, in my opinion, counterproductive. The vast majority of the users, for whom we work, want quick info and don't "study Wikology". If a link sends a user to a foreign-language Wiki page, a one-step, quite familiar function (right-side click on "Translate to English") allows access to a LOT of info, be it poorly translated. The technical Wikidata pages now linked to are far, far less informative. I couldn't find any quick link on them taking you back to the foreign-language Wiki page, either. So the user gets less, in a dry, uninviting and (to me also) unfamiliar page, which looks like some tool for nerds, not at all like a user-friendly ENCYCLOPEDIA page. I invite you to please think it over, and if you agree - revert those edits. Please always keep in mind that the common WP user, user-friendliness, and encyclopedic quality is all that matters.

Yes, you are right as written on User talk:Marsupium#Your "wikification" does not serve the user! Now I have suppressed the rendering of Wikidata links. Cheers, --Marsupium (talk) 17:23, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
