*Isn't that the whole point of redirects, that you can redirect [[some title]] to [[Some Title]] or vice versa, so that people won't mess up links if they don't know how exactly to spell them? I think on Wikipedia about 40% of the pages are redirects now. <font color="blue">[[User talk:Radiant|Radiant]]</font> <i>([http://taleoftwokingdoms.com ATOTK])</i> 02:42, 9 December 2005 (CET)

Hey, what's the deal with moving all pages to Capitalize Every Single Word? It seems more appropriate to use sentence case when dealing with normal terms (as opposed to proper nouns, which should of course be capitalized). Radiant (ATOTK) 15:28, 8 December 2005 (CET)

Because:

  1. It's not really necessary to change them if they're capitalized, moreover, you didn't change all the pages, so for example in the BFAQ half of them fixed, and the other half not, which creates even more inconsistensies, moreover, there're already pages linking to them.
  2. Moving (renaming) a page leaves lots of crap redirect pages, which is a pain to clean them off (and sometimes when you remove one redirect page some link may be broken).
