A Proposal to Delete Every Redirect Page

JEA13 May 5, 2009 User blog:JEA13

Hello everyone. I created this blog to propose the massive deletion of every redirect page. Below I will state the reason I propose this.

In a great bunch of blogs and forums, especially those concerning Halopedia history, there are always reports about the number of pages this wiki has. Also, Wikia lists all her wikis in a lot of categories, the most visited being "the largest wikis" or alternatively "the wikis with the most pages". Redirect pages add to the general amount of page numbers, and this wiki has more that 500. A lot of them are unused, like this, some were created because of laziness or maybe even "silliness", like this, and some were created for extreme laziness. Examples to this are CT and RR (lol). So I am proposing the deletion of every redirect found anywhere, and I'm also kindly asking everyone to try to write down [[John-117|the Chief]] instead of [[the Chief]] when in need. This way, we will give Wikia and Halopedia visitors and staff a more realistic view of Halopedia and it's level of information quality. Of course, redirects like [[UNSC]] should not be deleted, as it's really boring to write down [[United Nations Space Command|UNSC]]... even for me... xD. What do you think?

Oppose Oppose - Umm, no. —Councillor Kougermasters 15:03, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - No. Some names are far too confusing (the Spartan Laser article comes to mind). Others are often referred to more than one way. Deleting the redirects is a good way to confuse the crap out of anyone trying to link to an article without knowing the EXACT name. 15:13, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - No way. How many people still type Ghost instead of Type-32 RAV? The example I made is one of the simplest, but imagine what kind of mess this decision would bring, exspecially to people who visit Halopedia just to get some info..

Oppose Oppose - As per Spirit of Fire. I can't imagine everyone has memorized the Covenant names of the non-human species, or the specific names of all the weapons. How many people know what a Anti-Vehicle Model 6 Grindell/Galilean Nonlinear Rifle is? Colonel DA, Administrator 13:47, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
