Reverted page to Nurse Glockner as its the name viewers know the chacrater by --Missyjack 21:22, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

"Nurse Glockner" still redirected to the right place, one would assume that we'd want to actually list her proper name on the article though... no? It was an interesting piece of information that I was stunned that wasn't already listed on the page. It seemed (to me) a logical thing to have the redirect (that we knew her by) actually point to an article with her proper name on it. Just because we know her as something, does not mean that the article proper should not be at her proper name. -- sulfur 13:23, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
The Bobby page is at 'Bobby Singer', not 'Robert Stephen Singer' or even 'Robert Singer', because we know him as Bobby. As long as Glockner's full name's on the Nurse Glockner page, I think we're good. —EllieMurasaki 15:12, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
The "Bobby Singer" analaogy would be more sound if his page were found at simply "Bobby". Since, that's what we know him as in the show. My point is, we know Glockner's first name, so it makes more sense to not include a title in her article. Same logic as "Special Agent Victor Henrikson" v "Victor Henrikson". Hell, him, we knew primarily as "Special Agent Henrikson." -- sulfur 16:04, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
If the wiki actually says 'Henrikson' I'ma be pissed. I have a Jus in Bello screencap to the effect of 'Victor Henriksen'. *goes to check* —EllieMurasaki 16:12, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
Sorry. Meant "sEn", not "sOn". Replace the "o" bits with "e" bits, and the logic holds though. -- sulfur 19:08, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree that in the majority of cases we will want to list someone under their correct name, however sometimes "usability" wins out. The WIki must be easy for people to fin what they want. One test I use is if someone is looking through the "Character" category, would they find who they were looking for. I think we changed Victor Henricksen from Special Agent Victor Henriksen because people would look under Victor or Henriksen for him. Some pages of course change over time - Azazel was originally Yellow-Eyed Demon. It's not an exact science! cheers --Missyjack 21:28, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
