HyperlinksEdit

The hyperlinks in general on this page seem to be causing a lot of debate and confusion. Personally, I don't think we should be adding them here in general for the most part beyond the obvious ones. While IMO, things like the Shadow being Lorkhan and the forest spirits children being Bosmer seem correct, it's hard to support without original research and has been debated in the past.

(Also, I feel like the Kota link is another example of why separating Padomay and Sithis is a bad idea. There's no reason to support a link to Padomay over a link to Sithis here when the only clear analogue is Satakal, who is tied to both names)— Unsigned comment by Jacksol (talkcontribs)

So I didn’t make any of the hyper-links on this page, but it makes sense that Kota would be linked to Padomay in this instance for consistencies sake. When hyper-linking presumed deities, we almost always use the most basic/universal version of that deity. For example if a text speaks to an unnamed “dragon god of time” we would almost for sure link to Akatosh rather than Auriel or Alkosh even though any of the three COULD work. Anu and Padomay are definitely the most basic to link to in this instance instead of Anuiel and Sithis or Ahnurr and Fadomai etc. -dcking20— Unsigned comment by dcking20 (talkcontribs)
I mean, that’s just not true. If anything, Sithis can be easily considered the ‘base’ version, as it’s used far more often and is referenced far more than the name padomay in day-to-day tamriel. There’s nothing that links it to one specific version instead of the other.
Either way, that’s really not the main point of this The issue is moreso the hyperlinks in general here being very speculative. I agree with you removing them, I just want to put it in stone here before removing the rest of the more vague connections. Jacksol (talk) 16:59, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
