The result of the debate was Do not use links in in-article titles—Xwing328(Talk) 16:18, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
This may just be me, but whenever I tend to edit an article, I try too avoid having links within the in-article title. For example, on the First Sith Civil War article. It is displayed like this: First SithCivil War which, in my POV is unsightly.
I propose a consensus that disallows this, meaning we'll have to change the links to the next mention of such events, which is usually in the same paragraph.
But sometimes with a rank or title, it might be the only time it is mentioned in an article. -- Ozzel 17:43, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
To be honest, I highly doubt that. And besides, I beleive a consensus has already beenr eached that prohibits things like Grand Moff Tarkin, because titles are not allowed, so that wouldn't contradict this proposal anyway. Jasca DucatoSith CouncilSith Campaign 20:44, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
I agree that the bolded subject shouldn't have links. Rather than saying "Lieutenant Blah of the Yada Yada," we should really say "Blah was a lieutenant in the Yada Yada." And I'm awaiting .... with his battle cry of "It's more encyclopedic!" -- Darth Culator(Talk)(Kills) 22:08, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Unless it's the only mention, which it usually shouldn't be. And titles aren't supposed to be used anyways, like Jasca Ducato said. —Xwing328(Talk) 15:29, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
