Talk:Cobweb Mouse

From MHWiki

Where should Cobweb redirect

I recently cleaned up a lot of links that pointed to [[Cobweb]] when they meant the item, not the mouse. I see a trade-off between:

  • using [[Cobweb (item)|Cobweb]] for the item and [[Cobweb]] for abbreviated mice references, such as on Mice
  • using [[Cobweb]] for the item and [[Cobweb Mouse|Cobweb]] for abbreviated mice references
  • having [[Cobweb]] redirect to a [[Cobweb (disambiguation)]] page, even though it would only have two entries (our normal policy is no disambiguation page until 3 or more hits), requiring full spelling for both item and mouse

Which usage do we expect more, so that we don't repeat our wrong link mistakes? If a user searches for Cobweb, are they more likely to be searching for the item or the mouse? Also, remember that we have precedence of Gold being different than Gold Mouse, and having to use [[Gold Mouse|Gold]] for the abbreviated name. -- ericb talkcontr 22:25, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Once again, we had several links to the wrong place (mouse where we meant the item). I went ahead with a disambiguation page, because then it's easier to use the Special:WhatLinksHere/Cobweb toolbox to chase down bad links. -- ericb talkcontr 04:58, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
