Nothing links to this page anymore, but forgetting the ":" might be a common misspelling, so maybe this redirect would be a good idea. I don't know. What do you all think? --Andreasen 09:50, 20 Apr 2006 (PDT)

Unless an admin says that the number of pages in the database needs to be decreased to reduce server load in some way, I don't see the benefits of tidying up redirect and other minor pages? Giles 11:12, 20 Apr 2006 (PDT)
When you move a page you are told to tidy up all redirects, probably to simply clear up editor confusion of what really links where, what the official way to type a thing like "Half-Life 2: Deathmatch" is, and generate less unneccessary hits on lists and database searches. the thought of the wiki being littered with unuseful pages bugs a neatfreak like me. Then again there are some redirects that are useful, when people often type things wrong and doesn't know how to type things right. --Andreasen 12:00, 20 Apr 2006 (PDT)
