Tavvy Talks[edit source]


WOW...I had no idea it would sound like home! LOL

My comments on it so far:

Strong undelete Tavvy deserves a redirect. I agree with Gangsterls, why not! I just started playing this year, but I see a lot of people use the short version of almost all the cities - including Tav and Tavvy. Not all of them end in y, but there are a lot of shorthand typers out there. I use the abbrevations myself, as do my kids and their friends. When I first looked up the cities here, I expected to see the shorthand versions since everyone had been using them while playing. We let newcommers know what people are talking about. Isn't that what Wiki is all about informational site? I started calling Barbarian village Barbie Vill right away. I've also already heard and seen the Grand Exchange called GE and Gex as well. People are going to take a shortcut when they can, and wording is no diff. So we might as well let the community know what those abbreviations mean. BTW, I have a friend who started playing back when it was classic. He said he's never ever seen anyone say Hoob - yet here it is on Wiki in the abbreviations ...also Tavvy is there, but not Tav and so is Edgy. --Momenator70 16:08, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Comment - and question

Comment Instead of considering this one case alone, we should drop this for now and work out a general rule for all redirects. Then once that's settled, we can solve any disputes over whether "Tavvy" meets these criteria or not, if needed. It'll be easier to reach a consensus if we do it this way.

I agree. We need something to go by. We need to know exactly what goes and what can stay. Otherwise we just keep spinning our tires so to speak, and get nothing productive done. The problem with this is, who exactly gets to do that? I read this here also:

... ps I know camelot isnt a major place, but since its the most convienient teleport for reaching seers village and so many people think they are the same thing, we can let that swing, i call the place cammy after the teleport all the time, just in case someone tries to use that, thats the reason that ones allowed.

...thats the reason that ones allowed. Who gets to pick what is allowed? Because it's obvious we all have different criteria in mind. Some we agree with, others - it's a whole different ballgame. --Momenator70 17:57, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
