Greetings,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Community Tech team is planning on removing the RelatedSites extension from this wiki. RelatedSites was developed for Wikivoyage/Wikitravel many years ago as a way to link to other wikis, seen in the sidebar as "Related Sites." This extension repeats the work of Wikidata's "In other projects" that you also see in the sidebar. Since RelatedSites is only used by Wikivoyage and is unsupported any further, it is necessary to remove the old function of RelatedSites before the software breaks. This wiki has over five hundred pages using RelatedSites, and Community Tech is willing to help remove the links before removing the extension completely.

There are two questions: is the community okay with the removal of RelatedSites, and would the community like help in removing the links?

What do you all think?
