Talk:List of bogs
|WikiProject Ireland||(Rated List-class, Low-importance)|
An editor has restored a set of redlinked list entries with the comment that redlinks are good.
First, let me agree that in some situations redlinks ARE good. For instance, in a scientific article, a redlink to a species that does not yet have a WP article is a good thing: the species can readily be proven to exist, and an article will be welcome when it arrives.
The same is not necessarily true of possibly small, possibly WP:hoax items such as bogs. The function of the list here is to assemble for convenience a way of accessing the existing WP articles on those places which have already been established as notable. Each one should therefore have a bluelink (and probably a citation too). It is therefore inappropriate to include redlinks; articles should be written first, then linked. I'd like therefore to restore my changes unless there are convincing counter-arguments. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:26, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
- In the absence of arguments to the contrary, I shall restore this change now. Chiswick Chap (talk) 09:26, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
