The hard work you speak of, was a double redirect to a non-existant article, the #redirect was totally defunct, non-functional, unusable, try it for yourself if you don't believe me..
that makes this tag {{subst:mediawiki:noarticletext}}, appropriate, better than clogging the servers with uneeded/unusable redirects--Hey you 05:39, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
No, you should have just simply fixed the redirect. -- (drini's page|) 05:40, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Why, there was no article there, there must be ten zillion different redirects leading to that one page as it is, does one more empty page with no content other than a redirect actually contribute anything or just clog up server space? I mean, there literally was no article, the first edit was that redirect, it was unneeded--Hey you 05:44, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Political compass did exist. So you should have just changed the redirect to Political Compass to Political compass
. -- (drini's page|) 05:47, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Not only does it exist but it, is in fact, being proposed for a merger with yet another article, which would have left behind what? You guessed it, a tripple redirect--Hey you 05:49, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
No, when the articles be merged, it's task of the merge to fix the redirect. And in any case (since now it's a sINGLE redirect) would become a double redirect (which would be fixed). -- (drini's page|) 05:53, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
The point is that it's uneeded, there was no article there in the first place, does this mean I can go out and create the article Political Compass(figure of speech) just so I can go and add a redirect to Political Compass?? My point is this, what tiny fraction of these redirects ACTUALLY need to be there at all? Small I'd bet--Hey you 05:56, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
*sigh* Political compass existed already, it was Political Compass which didn't exist (entry titles are capital sensitive). There was a double redirect to the second (nonexisting9 which I fixed it turning it into a single redirect to the first. -- (drini's page|) 05:59, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Well, that would seem to be the point, why should every single case sensitive permutation of a article title have it's own redirect, it's clear over kill, any intelligent person should be able to say to themselves, gee political compass doesn't exist, why don't I try Political compass instead, now you'll just encourage them to go out and add a whole bunch of uneeded redirects--Hey you 06:07, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

  • When did that happen? I haven't done anything since my last warning--Hey you 06:33, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Oh well, at least Point (II) is satisfied, I can now go down in wiki-history as a 24-wiki-matyr, kind of so, so, but not much I can do about it--Hey you 06:38, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
