Would be a good idea to make a redirect from BLUDTOPOWA in case someone makes this mistake. --Headrock 15:53, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

  • You know, I thought about this with Bloodmage and it seems that if someone is editing they should preview the edit. If they do that they'll see a red-link in their edit and should look at what the correct article name is and use that instead. The other side of the argument is that it promotes ease of use for what's really important: the end user. With that said I guess a redirect is a good idea...--Gentlegiant03 16:53, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
    • In a sense you ARE right, when it comes to misspellings. Things like Bloodmage should have redirects because in essence, all the spellings ("Blood Mage", "Bloodmage", "Blood mage") are correct, but only one specific form is canon. Where there's a misspelling however, like BLUDTOPOWA, it's probably better to treat it as such without a redirect, otherwise people will never realize there's a correct and incorrect spelling. It took me a while before I even realized I was spelling it badly - and I had made a dozen articles by that point. So bottom line - I agree with you. --Headrock 17:03, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
