Canines etc.

Merging the various canines into a single page seems a reasonable idea; NetHackWiki is full of pages that just have a quick, perfunctory description of some monster or item. Deleting the original pages, though, isn't a good idea -- someone who types "wolf" into the search box to the left is going to want to find some information. Instead, the pages should be redirects. To make a redirect, blank the page and then replace it with "#REDIRECT [[target page]]". Any editor can do this; you don't need sysop privileges, or even a login.--Ray Chason 23:49, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

I also like to add [[Category:Monsters]] to such redirect pages, so that the category list still has the actual monster name on it. MysterX 00:03, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I'll fix up the pages in a little bit. I'm happily to finally be contributing something to a wiki, even if it is just for a game :PShmoo 00:13, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
