I'm not real sure how this site works, so it wouldn't surprise me if nobody ever finds this note.

Here's what happened. A Life Flight helicopter just flew over my residence, so I searched Wikepedia for information. There was none. I clicked the "create this article" link, and promptly did so.

Now, after submitting the article, I realize that it used my (informal and improperly capitalized) search term "Life flight" as the title of the page. I added the title "Life Flight" to the text of the article, but that doesn't seem to affect the "official" page title (sorry, I'm new here and I haven't picked up the terminology yet).

If it's fixable by me, I'd appreciate someone letting me know how to do it. If it's fixable by an administrator, I'd appreciate that, too. Jp media 06:05, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Okay, I'm assuming that we do top-replies here. After further consideration, it looks like we don't.

Should I simply create a new page with the proper capitalization (Life Flight) and redirect the original page? That seems like the quickest solution, but it also seems like a hack. Why doesn't Wikipedia automatically correct (and/or redirect) for spelling and capitalization errors?

update: I copied the information into the article practically directly from the linked web site. There is no copyright notice on the site, and I've e-mailed the webmaster to ask for permission to use the content. And also to ask for permission to use a photo. Jp media 07:08, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
