Feedback pl0x - anything that should be in here, bu isn't? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 21:38, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Maybe add about redirecting no capitalized links to capitalized links? Like Rogue's castle to Rogue's Castle, because i find this a lot. Santa hat.png The Voices (Talk) 09:21, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
I have the opposite problem; I'm seeing a lot of multiple-word items with the subsequent words capitalized when they shouldn't be, like Ground Unicorn Horn Atlantima talk trade contribs21:59, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Those should be moved. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 22:26, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Antlantima. When you type something in the search box it isn't case sensitive, so capital redirects only encourage people to use inappropriate capitals. --Wowbagger421 18:52, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

A big limitation with redirect pages?[edit source]

If someone was to type in the search bar "rune plate" it would not redirect them to the Rune Platebody page. But you can't make a redirect page named "rune plate" because there is already one called "Rune plate". And since there can't be two pages with the same spelling but different capitalization, the "rune plate" page can't be made. It's apparently not possible to cover all of the different capitalization possibilities for a page. GameCubeController (talk) 19:13, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

"rune plate" and "Rune plate" are the same page because of MediaWiki's page title canonicalisation rules. "Rune plate" and "Rune Plate" are not. Typing "rune plate" into the search box and activating Go instead of Search should take you there. For that, you need to go into Special:Preferences and tick Enable Go-search.  a proofreader ▸  19:17, September 15, 2012 (UTC)
