Why are you putting an anidb's link on artist pages even though knowing it is ineligible as source?

I include AniDB links on entries for animators, so that anyone interested in checking out what their animation works are can easily do so.

Just because they aren't a valid source for romanized names doesn't mean that we can't link to their database.

You don't need to do that even providing inconrrect info. Members can even misunderstand anidb is reliable source for name romanization because staff put it.

Then they'll be presented with an error message saying that AniDB is not a valid source. AniDB links are not allowed in artist submission comments.
