Resolved: A request will be sent in to Wikia staff to disable the Related Videos module.

As some of you may know, article pages have a module known as "Related Videos" which Wikia activated out of nowhere. I've noticed that it appears to list videos out of anywhere (like having a listed video for a console game on the article for Elevator) and it appears to be tedious enough to not warrant the effort to improve things. Despite hardly promoting it, I've seen a few complaints about it on various talk pages.

As the title hints, I'm proposing that we contact Wikia to remove the extension. I know this is possible as I've noticed it's been done on other wikis. We've utilised the gallery tabs to list YouTube videos for specific articles, have done for a very long time now and it's much more convenient and direct this way.

In my honest opinion, that thing can go. The videos it fetches are completely unrelated (for example, I was once reading the article we have on Vacation and the first video that appeared there was a trailer for Apartment Pets) and that thing is useless, like Lab pointed out. I don't get it. DanPintalkcontribs 10:48, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

I never saw where the "related videos" were all that related. I don't care for it, and wouldn't miss it. Dharden (talk) 12:28, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
I say get rid of it. It won't be missed and it's pointless and gives unrelated video suggestions like Dan stated. HanaGoth96 (Neigh...?)
I'm completely fine with removing the extension. Like Dharden said, there won't be many (or any) people that will miss it. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 17:17, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
I'd love if we can get rid of it. Related videos can still be attached in the related articles manually, via <gallery> tag. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:45, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

This thread has been open for a week. We've had several users support the proposal and none have come forward to oppose it. Therefore consensus is achieved, and a request will be sent into Wikia staff to remove the Related Videos module. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 00:46, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
