On the issues of Plurals and Capitals in words, I have taken to creating multiple redirects for my favorite terms.For example, if you put a link up to:Credit Default SwapsCDScredit default swapYou'll get redirected toCredit default swapOne of the big problems I have reading message board posts is that people often forget to say what their acronyms mean. Having acronym redirects allow people to quickly figure out what an unfamiliar one means.Also, creating a pluralized redirect allows people who are building pages not to have to make a funky link. I'd rather create one redirect once than have everyone who reference [credit default swaps] have to figure out how to hide a reference to [credit default swap|credit default swaps].It's my programming background -- less code is almost always better code (so long as it's self-documenting).Also, the redirects of acronyms will give us the ability to create disambiguation pages. We don't have any so far, but eventually we will need to tell the difference between, say a company with Ticker symbol CDS and the Credit swap CDS. The disambiguation page will allow us to put links to both in an easy place.Great idea on the How To category! I love it.Har1en
