Consensual revisited[edit]

A recent book revisits the evidence from the trial and suggests that Wilde pressurised boys.

Right, and word it how? The way it was inserted was a mess, especially for a GA. Word it in here (and properly sourced), with a consensus, and then add. Duffy BT (talk) 20:55, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Section hatnotes vs. in-text links[edit]

I boldly made this edit to replace three hatnote links to works discussed in a subsection with in-text wikilinks. But I notice this practice is used in several other places in the article, so I thought I'd bring it up here. Thoughts on whether to continue the status quo vs. replacing hatnotes with in-text links where possible? I'm in favour of the change, because it allows the reader to follow (or hover/preview) the link to work X at the point in their reading where it's first mentioned. It's also just a more compact use of space. But I can see an argument that the hatnote links make it a bit easier to see the overall organization at a glance. Colin M (talk) 19:24, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Another option I didn't consider above would be to keep the hatnotes but also add in-text links at first mention. Also, I found a relevant discussion at the talk page for MOS:LINK, though it didn't reach any consensus. Colin M (talk) 19:08, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
