Long before the site relaunch in 2013 I created a Free PC Games list. In this list I incorporated links to official websites and steam store pages etc. But after the site relaunch, the links no longer work in lists (that I know of). I asked months ago if there was any intention of reinstating the ability to insert links into an item's description in a list but got no response. My question is - Is it OK to put these links on the wiki page for a given game instead? It seems like the next best thing. I have tried to duplicate my list into a blog post but it is far too fiddly and messy to maintain.

Interesting, I haven't used the lists since the change. I'm not entirely sure if it would be allowed or not, but telling them where to download it seems reasonable.

Outside links are generally discouraged, but there's no hard rule against them.

In a related note, I went onto the wiki page for Card Hunter today, a browser based game, and suddenly realised there was no way for me to actually get to that game and play it from there. I think it would actually be really useful for web games like that to have links so you don't have to search around randomly - especially as some of them are a little obscure.

The only links I would consider putting are official ones such as its official website.
