Re: Related Videos Module Edit

Hello and thanks for the offer.

I'll want to consult the other two admins before giving you any answer, but I can tell you that my personal preference is already a respectful "no thanks". I look at these sites as ideally remaining strictly encyclopaedic in nature, and have no patience for Wikia's recent (and very forceful) movements down the whole social platform, Facebook competitor road. My intimation is that, although they seem fairly innocuous at a glance, these related videos would only serve to further detract from the meat of the writing on the page.

There's also the danger of ending up on that slippery slope where we'd ultimately end up being cited in an advertising blurb or boardroom conference or whatever saying "countless wikis have already signed up to this new feature, these guys have sanctioned it, so let's get going and develop more sidebar innovations instead of focusing on bugfixes, documentation, interesting content and improved presentation!" I could explain myself in much more depth but I'm sure - or at least, I hope - you've heard all of this before.

Aside from that, I'm also a bit sceptical as to whether we in particular would have any practical use for such a feature. This is a series of five videogames, not really a huge franchise, and every cinematic, trailer and walkthrough related to it can already be looked up on YouTube in a matter of seconds. But anyway, that's just me. Thanks and we will get back to you with a formal decision in due time. --LoK-Aevum (talk) 19:47, August 11, 2012 (UTC)
