Alternate spellings, perhaps, but should we have redirects for spelling _mistakes_? Tevildo 08:21, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Yes. What if a user searches for that term, and comes up blank? What if someone links to that term? In either case, it's preferable for the link to be there rather than not. Remember, if they didn't spell it right the first time they probably won't get it right next time either. Redirects are simply there for ease of use.
It's true that someone might well create a page with an incorrect spelling. However, if they didn't check the link to see that it was a redirect, they probably wouldn't have bothered checking to see that the red link that they did get was incorrectly spelt - they'd just assume that the term wasn't done yet (and perhaps even remove the link). And really, if the user gets to the appropriate page, does it matter? They can always go back and fix the previous page. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 13:58, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Redirect for spelling mistake[edit]

I think it would be better not to have this redirect for a spelling error (easily mis-typed and overlooked). -- Sine 04:04, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
