So the writing of that guideline needs to be rewritten since it's not
conveyed the intentions behind it and I should have looked to correct that
The original idea what that it would allow linking to sites whereby a
Wikimedia entity controls the content of the landing page not necessarily
owning the domain itself or hosting the site.
This is meant to allow for things like Wikimedia controlled youtube streams
such as this, Wikimedia controlled eventbrite pages for Wikimedia run
conferences, surveys created and maintained by Wikimedia but hosted on
third party websites such as surveymonkey, google or qualtrics (groups like
the Irish use group and other affiliates) or hosted MOOC content that is
hosted on a third party website but whose content is maintained by
Wikimedia (such as that run by Wikimedia France)
I hope that makes sense. Silver lining is that I am glad that this list
isn't completely dead.
