Red links[edit]

I don't like seeing red links in a template. I don't think red links should be included, only schools for which articles exist. Discuss... --TimTay (talk) 14:02, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I think red links are a sign to others that an article is needed - therefore I've been adding those from town & village articles (eg Yeovil) where some info on the school has been included but the school doesn't have its own article. Perhaps we should have a period of collaboration on schools as they represent many of the articles requested at: Wikipedia:WikiProject Somerset/to do (which would also sort the red links here) and a major cause of cleanup tags listed at: Wikipedia:WikiProject Somerset/Cleanup listing. — Rod talk 14:12, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Understood and good point. However, I did delete a red link for a primary school as we could get into a very messy situation if red links were added for every single primary. --TimTay (talk) 14:47, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
The consensus at WikiProject Schools is against such redlinks. This is not a list of notable schools, but a navigation template - its purpose is to navigate beteeen articles which exist. Links to non-existent articles do not help, here. Xn4 (talk) 06:34, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
As a result of these discussions I have created List of schools in the county of Somerset and its sub lists and removed the red links from the navigation template.— Rod talk 10:12, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
