Your "wikification" does not serve the user edit

Hi Marsupium. The edits on the "Jewish architects" page 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 pages you are linking 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 too) unfamiliar page format, which looks like some tool for nerds, not at all like a user-friendly ENCYCLOPEDIA page. So please, think it over, and I hope you can agree - and revert those edits. Please always keep in mind that the user and user-friendliness plus encyclopedic quality is all that matters. I will add a version of this post to the talk page there, not to circumvent you, but to give food for thought to other editors, too. Thanks and cheers, Arminden (talk) 08:53, 27 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Yes, you are right! Thank you for bringing this up! There should actually be a general discussion and recommendation on this at Template:Interlanguage link. For me, it is nice to have a link to Wikidata, for most others probably not, I see, and even then it is only two clicks instead of one with interlanguage links … Now I have suppressed the rendering of Wikidata links.

Thank you! It's more direct access to the goods. And wow, you really put a lot of work into it. Cheers, Arminden (talk) 19:53, 28 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Abd al-Wahid Mosque edit

Hi Marsupium, thank you for your contributions. The Abd al-Wahid Mosque is a historical building of note, but the article you created needs some work. Please take the time to review the essay-like passages, and find more sources to enrich the article. It would be a shame to see it go. el.ziade (talkallam) 21:39, 9 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

The same goes for the Mu'allaq Mosque article. Please address the flagged issues. el.ziade (talkallam) 21:40, 9 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
