Deletion rationale Edit

Unused redirect and in the wrong namespace.

Discussion Edit

Moved from Talk:Memory Alpha wiki

Is there a point to this redirect? If someone is here already why do they need a link to the main page?--31dot 11:09, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

More unnecessary "Search Engine Optimization", I guess... -- Cid Highwind 11:26, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Addendum: It's also a project page redirect in article namespace, and should be deleted unless anyone can bring up good reasons for it to stay. -- Cid Highwind 12:13, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
It was created by a guy who works on the gaming community at Wikia. It wouldn't surprise me if there's some asinine link out there that points to this page, expecting the main page. -- sulfur 12:27, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Well, that's what w:c:memory-alpha is for - or at least, was, before they had the frakking idea to redirect that one to the crappy "WikiActivity" page... -- Cid Highwind 12:35, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
memoryalpha: too. -- sulfur 12:39, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
As Archduk3 let me know, this is a personal setting one can disable in the Preferences. It's the last row in the last tab, mysteriously described as "Disable my redirect to Wiki Activity" to make sure no one will guess what the setting is for. :) -- Cid Highwind 17:20, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Anyone who doesn't want this deleted, now would be the time to chime in, since I'll take care of this shortly if we don't have a in house reason to keep it. - Archduk3 23:13, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

Copied from creator's talk pageEdit

just for some further information on the reason for its initial existence...

What's the point of this redirect? - Archduk3 00:08, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Most wiki's use their actual sitename as their mainpage, in this case "Memory Alpha Wiki". Having a redirect from that page to the mainpage would mean better SEO. Mark@fandom (talk) 14:21, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Admin resolution Edit

Deleted. Archived discussion in case this comes up again. - Archduk3 10:23, January 14, 2011 (UTC)
