Poor spelling is no reason, ever, to delete an article. Subject not worthy, ok. It is not worthy, it can all be covered in No Hands on Deck! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:31, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, it might be wise to make galvanized nails link to No Hands on Deck! Flashfight 01:48, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't see the need to create the "galvanized nails" redirect. We won't need it in any article, and it's not like searching for it is very complicated. This can be outright deleted. Loafing 01:51, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. I was going to post something saying that but you beat me. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:54, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Redirects are cheap, so I see no reason not to go ahead and redirect rather than delete. Heimstern Läufer 02:57, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Except that we wouldn't redirect THIS page since it is spelled wrong. We'd have to CREATE galvanized nails in order to redirect it. I just don't see the point of going to that effort. I say: delete outright. OptimisticFool 03:38, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Redirects are CHEAP? Does it cost money to delete a page? If so, then thats weird. I really don't think we even need to redirect this page (unless it costs to delete). Loafing's right, if there's not a page, search and destroy you'll find what you're lookin' for. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 05:05, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Why, yes, it does cost money to delete a page. Or create one. Or edit it. Every action on the wiki creates data that needs to be stored. The wiki has to pay for that storage. And every action uses up bandwidth for which we also have to pay. But look at me wasting money by just blubbering away. What I think Heimi really meant was that it does not cost much effort to create or maintain a redirect. Loafing 09:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Loafing and OF: I don't think it's worth the effort to move the page and redirect it since people can just type "galvanized nails" in the search bar and achieve the same effect. Trey56 20:29, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Eh, I just made the redirect. It was quick and easy. Now let's baleet this one. Heimstern Läufer 23:52, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Okay, that's fine. I moved the original page there to preserve the page history, and I turned it into a redirect. Trey56 03:18, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
