Is this page really necessary?[edit]

It seems to be just an extension of Link Arrows, similar to "co-linked" is to "linked." It is simply whatever those arrows are pointing at.

TCG never even gave it a proper term name, and refers to it only as "points to." It is unlikely that it'll give it one at all, and I don't want this page to be the unofficial "Link Point" forever.

I suggest merging with the Link Arrows page. Lightning Laxus (talkcontribs) 05:50, June 13, 2017 (UTC)

I suppose we could move this page to "point" and make it about the meaning of the term "point" in the context of Link Monsters. --SnorlaxMonster 07:46, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
If we end up just renaming, I would suggest "Pointed zone", just to be more specific, and consistent with the previous name. --XBrain130™エックスブレーン130」 08:41, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
Pointed zone isn't an official term though. I'd rather avoid that. --SnorlaxMonster 10:08, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
I think it's better to merge this with the Linked page, if you choose to merge instead. Order (talkcontribs) 10:21, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
Problem is that Link Saki includes zones as well as monsters, while "linked" only includes monsters. Plus Crunchyroll translated "Link Saki" as "next to this card's Link Arrow." Lightning Laxus (talkcontribs) 14:36, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
Merge, I'd say. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 10:30, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
Well, if I am correct, "monster this card points to" effects are written「リンク先のモンスター」(Rinku Saki no Monsutaa: Lit. "Monster of Link Point"). That makes the term "Monster this card points to" sensible. JUst like my edit conflict on Attach and Detach as they always come with something to do with Xyz Material, and thus, they are written「下に重ねてX素材とする」(Shita ni kasanete Ekushiizu Sozai to suru) and「X素材を取り除く (Ekushiizu sozai wo torinozoku).
I suggest we keep the page "Link Point", KONAMI might release a "card this card points to"「リンク先のカード」(Rinku Saki no Kaado), which will also make S/T a viable target, albeit unlikely.0123456789 The Great (talkcontribs) 12:29, June 30, 2017 (UTC)
"Link Point" ìncludes both monsters and Monster Zones that a Link Arrow points to. It is very unlikely for linking to Spells and Traps to be possible.
"Link Point" has to go. The term is not supported anywhere in the TCG. Either we merge it with the Link Arrow page to save space, or rename this to "Points to," or something like that.
Attach and detach are clear action verbs. Link Point is a description. Lightning Laxus (talkcontribs) 00:34, July 1, 2017 (UTC)
We can take a look at Japanese terms and phrases for more information on Japanese texts (Which I constantly edit). I would vote yes if you guys are merging the page, and if you guys do, do not forget about Link Origin.0123456789 The Great (talkcontribs) 14:25, July 1, 2017 (UTC)
