I'm not sure "plural redirect" is the best reason to delete a redirect. It's a good reason to not make the redirect in the first place, but now that it's here, do we really need to get rid of it? The World's Hungriest Paperweight (talk) 22:48, 19 February 2013 (CST)

Well, there was a movement sometime ago to delete cluttering redirects because each redirect made appears in the search box through the AutoComplete feature when you type in a name (the whole rod/wand/staff situation and how that cluttered the search bar comes to mind). "Flame Dragons" would worthlessly appear in the search box's dynamic list of results if one types "Flame Dragon", when "Flame Dragon enemy line" is the main and important thing to have appear in the first place.

Hrmm... Okay, that actually makes sense. Can anyone else think of a reason to actually keep this? If not, I think I'm cool with cutting it now. The World's Hungriest Paperweight (talk) 10:35, 20 February 2013 (CST)
I should probably point out that, in addition to the Chestbeaters page, Shadowwisp and several "Monster Skills" variants would also qualify. I guess they could all be safely deleted, but I want to give people a chance to respond so I think I'll wait another twelve hours. Unless, of course, someone else gets to it first... P.S. There might still be some articles that link to the "Monster Skills" variants, but Chestbeaters and Shadowwisp are safe. The World's Hungriest Paperweight (talk) 21:08, 20 February 2013 (CST)
You could probably afford to be a little more bold with pages like these that are clearly straightforward offenders. And besides, keep in mind that deleted pages are never actually deleted off the wiki; they are still stored on the site in a latent state so that admins can look at their contents and difference-versions just like looking at any existing page's history, and undelete them back to exactly the way they were if it's ever necessary.

Yeah, I know. My main concern is that someone else might want to say something but just hasn't had the chance yet. I guess the "Shadowwisp" can go, though, since it's a straight-up misspelling. The World's Hungriest Paperweight (talk) 22:17, 20 February 2013 (CST)
