Sometimes, the most awesome name is not the most intuitive one. One simple solution is to make a redirect from the intuitive name to the awesome name. If you've never created a redirect before, the process can seem very mysterious. Just follow these instructions!

'''''STOP!''''': Do ''not'' create redirects (or pages) for the following:

* Misspellings: "[=MagicalGrrl=]" to MagicalGirl
* Abbreviations: "[=WoT=]" to ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' [[note]]This is okay if it is an OfficiallyShortenedTitle.[[/note]]
* Accidental {{Wiki Word}}s, caused by all-caps followed by either numbers or lowercase letters ("[=MP3=]", "[=RPGs=]", "[=NPCs=]"); use the [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules [=[=]=NotAWikiWord=[=]=] markup]] to prevent linking these.
* Specific examples: "[=KMF=]" to HumongousMecha
* Plurals: Regular plurals can be linked by surrounding the singular term with [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules curly braces]] and adding the "s": [={{Game Breaker}}s=], for example, becomes {{Game Breaker}}s. (Which should come naturally to {{Wikipedia Syntaxer}}s.) Exceptions can be made for irregular pluralization ("Men" for "Man", "Companies" for "Company") or plurals within the name (BossesInMookClothing for BossInMookClothing).
* Trope names with definite articles: "[=TheTsundere=]" to {{Tsundere}} (OK for show titles, though)
* Character names that aren't used as official titles (e.g. [=JohnMcClane=] to ''Film/DieHard'').
* Memes to works that inspired them (e.g. Leekspin to ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'').
* Inboundless main pages for works, creators, UsefulNotes or anything else that needs a different Administrivia/{{Namespace}}. Wicks for those should be namespaced. (Caveat: sometimes a trope will have a variant name that also happens to be a work title; in this uncommon case, the redirect should point to the trope page, not the work page, and only wicks referring to the work should be namespaced.)
* A page that redirects somewhere else (e.g. Main.TheDarkKnightSaga redirects to Film.TheDarkKnightSaga, so make any new redirects to the Film/ namespace, ''not'' the Main/ namespace).
* Variant names for tropes that don't improve clarity, but are simply a way to disguise a PotHole.

Other no-nos:
* Do not redirect to the CutList if you want to delete a page. We have [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/CutList.php a tool for that]].
* Similarly, do not redirect to [=URLs=] outside the wiki.

%%DO NOT mess with the escape sequences and redirects below. They're formatted that way for a reason.%%
Once you are sure your redirect works:
# Add the redirect name to a page; the WikiSandbox is good for this.
# Click on the red link to create, open and edit the new redirect page. Alternatively, type the name of the new redirect into the URL bar after /Main/.
# Copy and paste [=[[=]redirect:[=NewTrope]]=] from the [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules cheat-sheet]] on the edit page (under "show markup help"), replacing [=NewTrope=] with the name of the page you'd like to redirect to (the target page) and removing the space. Don't put a space after the colon! [=[[=]redirect:[=NewTrope]]=] will work, but [[==][redirect: [=NewTrope=]]] (note the space) won't.
** if the target page is in a namespace, prepend the namespace like this: [=[[=]redirect:[=Anime/AnimeShow]]=], even if the source page is in the same namespace.
** sometimes the redirect will not work because the target page is not recognized as a WikiWord, in that case add curly braces as for an internal link, e.g. [=[[=]redirect:[=Anime/{{=]Title[=}}]]=]
** When changing the old page to a redirect, after moving the original content, please remove everything but the redirect code. Otherwise the old content can cause problems when tropes are renamed or works have their namespacing changed, and create "ghost" wicks that take extra effort to change.
# Save your redirect page. You should be presented with the target page with words like "aka [=Main.RedirectTest"=] just under the title.
# [[HappyDance Celebrate!]]
