Uncommented revert[edit source]

Kathi Hanna,

would you like to explain your uncommented revert?

Kurt Kastner (talk), 27 Jan 2020

Certainly. It has been our policy in writing the German Empire pages to make links go as directly to the e-source as possible, so that inexperienced patrons don't get confused by having to hunt around a page seeing where they should click next. With that in mind, I reverted your change. Then I studied more closely the page you had preferred and saw its advantages: the alphabetic option and the link to the instructions. I changed the link back to your preferred page, added instructions to go to the right sidebar, and pointed out those advantageous links. Hanna5974 (talk)hanna5974Hanna5974 (talk)

Thank you! Kurt Kastner, 3 Feb 2020
