Creating redirects

Just to let you know, it's not necessary to copy and paste a previously established article in order to create a new name for the article, as you did with Viper Wings. ("Viper Wings" was essentially a slightly modified version of "Squadrons of Galactica".) You can simply use redirects to achieve the same effect by editing a page and adding: "#REDIRECT [[Page Name]]. Good editing! -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 04:21, 27 March 2007 (CDT)

I know, I wanted to make a provisional page to propose a change from "squadron" to "wing". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TaKometer (talk • contribs).
But "Viper Wings" doesn't make any sense. There is one Air Wing and several squadrons. No "wings". Merging Squadrons of Galactica and Air Wing has more merit. I could go either way on it, but I don't really see any need for it. One is more general about the Air Wing/Air Group while the other has more specific information --Serenity 09:21, 31 March 2007 (CDT)
