Redirects

I've deleted several of your redirects as they're unused and not even the proper name of several of the items. They're simply unnecessary. — Morder (talk) 04:45, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

If by unused you mean not linked to, just because nothing links to them does not mean people are not typing them into the search box. These are redirects not article titles, so it seemed to me what matters is what people might type the search box, not what the proper name is. Someone could easily misremember the name of "Random Thoughts" as "Random Thought". About "ISS Enterprize", Enterprize is an alternate spelling of Enterprise, see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/enterprize. Alternate spelling are allowed per Help:Redirect#What do we use redirects for?. "Combadges" is the purl from of Combadge. Someone could easily search for a purl from. Plurals are allowed per Help:Redirect#What do we use redirects for?. Seven of Nine is sometimes, on the show, called "7", so someone could easily search for it. Alternate names are allowed per Help:Redirect#What do we use redirects for?.--Emmette Hernandez Coleman 16:07, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
I think it's one thing to create a redirect if you looked for something under that title, but it is a different thing if you're creating them because you think someone would look for something under that title. Until some people actually do it's premature. Also, as per the Redirects help page, "When creating new redirects, bear in mind that creating too many redirects can clutter up the search results page, which can hinder users." When typing many of these words you have suggested, the desired page will come up with the search function without a redirect.--31dot 17:21, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
For example, even though the redirects help page mentions that we create redirects for plurals, which we sometimes do, it doesn't we that we should create redirects for all plurals. One reason for this is that the proper link to a plural form should be, for example, [[photon torpedo]]es, not [[photon torpedoes]]. Creating many plural redirects tends to encourage linking to the redirect rather than to the article itself, which we discourage. -- Renegade54 17:41, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
