Regarding [//pineight.com/mw/index.php?title=User:Eighty5cacao/Manual_of_Style_(songs_that_sound_alike)&diff=2904&oldid=2896 this]: Thank you for clarifying what I meant. I didn't mean to favor any kind of elitism (though there does seem to be some distinction here as to which users are "trusted"), and I was knowingly being a little sloppy with the wording.

What do I mean by "sloppy"? In my userspace drafts, especially within the first few edits, I often write in a manner that less than accurately expresses what is really on my mind. Hard as it may be, the details of my wording should be taken with a grain of salt. You may have seen signs of this previously on [[User:Eighty5cacao/misc/Aspie notes]] and its subpage.

How should we clarify in this MOS whether/when anchors like [//pineight.com/mw/index.php?title=Songs_that_sound_alike_%28video_games%29&diff=2975&oldid=2935 this] are necessary? [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 22:24, 14 March 2011 (MST) (last edit 22:33, 14 March 2011 (MST))

:Something like this: If a song has no Wikipedia article, link to the album, film, game, or other work with multiple movements in which the song is featured. If the article has a section about that song, link to that section. --[[User:Tepples|Tepples]] 17:37, 15 March 2011 (MST)

::Oh, well, that means I'll probably have to go back and add anchors to some of my entries. I was hoping to avoid that — could we make exceptions for cases where the appropriate anchor is close enough to the top of the article? (That is, it is unnecessary to link directly to the anchor if its name is obvious and it can be easily found within one screen height of the top of the Wp article, for some reasonable choice of screen resolution.) Admittedly, that wouldn't apply to most of the DDR cases. [[User:Eighty5cacao|Eighty5cacao]] 18:50, 15 March 2011 (MST) (last edit 08:04, 16 March 2011 (MST))
