What happens[edit]

For Listings, change the outward link to a stock phrase (web or website) or (better) an auto-numbered link. --Evan 16:03, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Why autonumber? I've always thought that it's an ugly, pointless wart, and (web) or whatever would be much clearer. Jpatokal 11:49, 5 October 2006 (EDT)
That's what was requested and it's what we've had on Wikitravel for listings for quite a while. --Evan 13:57, 5 October 2006 (EDT)
If you read en:Wikitravel talk:External links/Links in listings, you'll see quite a few people in favor for anything other than numbers, and (AFAIK) nobody in favor. Jpatokal 19:23, 5 October 2006 (EDT)
