 [[:Herbie]] needs to be renamed (or perhaps somehow redirected) because [[:​herbie_hamill|Herbie]] is the correct link. I wanted to just retroactively change all [[:Herbie]] links to the correct link, but I can't find a way to do that. If there is a way to do this automatically,​ a lot of redlinks on this wiki could be repaired. [[:Herbie]] needs to be renamed (or perhaps somehow redirected) because [[:​herbie_hamill|Herbie]] is the correct link.

 +--- 
 +This is something that needs a general overhaul. Editing the wiki is much easier if the page names (links) are just the regular name and not the full name. It should be unique enough on this wiki and people would probably search for the short names anyway. Page titles can still show the full names anyhow. With the main exception of [[:yappy fox]] and [[:herbie hamill]] almost every cast or character page is created by "​callsign"​ or "​nickname"​ only. The "​herbie"​ mixup happend because when I started filling the episode pages, even I didn't realize that there already was a page for him until it was about 50% of the episodes done wrong. If something changes, I vote for shorter names in links - Atkelar
