HendrixHendrix (disambiguation) – I propose making "Hendrix" a redirect to "Jimi Hendrix". I believe that Jimi gets more page views than all of the other Hendrix surnames and articles named Hendrix combined. Hoops gza (talk) 01:30, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. If a DAB title has a parenthetical, readers are less likely to mistake it for an actual article. Kauffner (talk) 16:29, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Jimi Hendrix is known as just Jimi Hendrix, not as Hendrix. Furthermore, Jimi Hendrix is dead and interest for him will slowly get less; "Hendrix" will probably slowly gain articles. Lova Falk talk 11:42, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment: the argument about the dab having a parenthetical to avoid confusion is contrary to the consensus for placement of dabs with no primary topic. I'd be happy to support this, though, if the OP or someone wants to go check the page views to confirm their belief. -- JHunterJ (talk) 18:51, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment: Right-o. All things Hendrix not including Jimi (not just the surname but the disambiguation page as well) sums to 58,347 page views in the past 30 days. Jimi Hendrix has 254,468 page views over that same time span.Hoops gza (talk) 23:34, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Support as noted with the numbers. -- JHunterJ (talk) 11:35, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
