::God I'm an idiot, you're an admin as well. That's what happens when you've been gone as long as I have. I honestly think that we should just fix all the pages which might link to Graves and then delete that redirect, but I'm not as familiar with our policies as I used to be. I think we can just assume no one will ever search for Graves. Proudhug? [[User:Xtreme680|Xtreme680]] 07:31, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

For situations like this, I usually defer to what Memory Alpha does, but in the case of disambiguation, I've never liked having pages with the tag "(disamgibuation)" in the title. The only one I couldn't figure out how to avoid was [[Agent (disambiguation)]]. I figured it would be silly to have "[[Agent]]" be a disambiguation page and the article on agents be found at something like "Agent (title)" or whatever. So perhaps, MA is smarter than us and we ''should'' follow their example. As it stands, we have lots of disambiguation pages that don't follow our rules as their written. For example, [[Paul]] is a dismabiguation page, yet there's only one character named just "Paul" ('''Paul (Day 1)'''). According to the current Manual of Style, there should be no disambiguation page, and Paul (Day 1)'s pages should be moved to "Paul." I'm up for ideas on how to improve or change our MoS's rules on disambiguation, but as it stands, for the case of Graves, I'd say make "Graves" a disambiguation page. --[[User:Proudhug|Proudhug]] 23:40, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
