It's not really necessary having plural and singular forms of an article name with redirects. The goes for alternate capitalization. (I'm using the Icemule herb articles as an example.) Generally we're only making redirects for articles with frequently used alternate names. CS -> Casting strength, TD -> Target defense, etc. Also, spell articles are named in the form Spell Name (Spell Number) and we have a both that runs through and created redirects for just Spell Name and just Spell Number.

Re: Tribes and permission. Nope. As long as what you write about their tribes is in your own words, you can add all you want about them here. You can't copyright a concept or idea, only a particular expression of it. So, while you can't (without their permission) copy verbatim things written by them, you can write about them yourself all you want. Anshou 00:51, 14 January 2006 (CST)

People need to stop being so anal about 'their' things. They don't own the tribe, even if they came up with it. Personally, I say write about them. The more information we get in here for people to access, the better. Anshou 11:23, 14 January 2006 (CST)

Hey Divid, if you could, could you use the Mediawiki table layout instead of HTML tables? It looks quite a bit cleaner and is more accessible to the general public. The info on how to do it is at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Table and an example is at Armor. Ildran 19:22, 15 January 2006 (CST)

Creature Articles

Yo, creature names aren't proper nouns, and they're not capitalized anywhere in-game. The articles you changed were named correctly. (Tawny brindlecat vs. Tawny Brindlecat) I'm going to go through and fix them. Just wanted to let you know why. - Oliver (User | Talk) 15:11, 8 April 2006 (PDT)
