[edit] Direct Again

Isn't there a better place for this to redirect to? TheGirl 04:25, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

It's a file name redirect. It redirects here because the toon's URL is HR:puppets.html. They're needed in some places, and also useful for finding a specific toon, if you don't know the name of it. --DorianGray 04:27, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Wouldn't it be more useful if this redirected to Puppet Stuff or Puppet Character Variations instead? File name redirects aren't a rigid guidelines; money redirects to Free Country, USA#Economics rather than Dancin' Bubs as the former was considered to be more useful, and fireworks doesn't lead to Happy Fireworks. So can puppets be another exception? Because if someone types the word "puppet" into the search box and hits Go, they won't get an entirely relevant article which fulfils the intention of the original search. – The Chort 17:03, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
I think the subtitle script relies on filename redirects (maybe?) - 17:44, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
It does, but i have been saying for a while now that we should have the filenames.html as the redirect for the subtitles script to avoid all confusion. Make the regular names redirect to their toon where it makes sense, and redirect to something else where it makes sense, but have filename.html always redirect to the article on that toon. That said, until and unless that's done, these should remain pointed to their files. — Defender1031*Talk 19:05, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
