What Uncyclopedia is not

There are two primary ways to change link text such that it will lead to the article you want it to get to without having to generate a redirect page.

  • Simple Changes: These are done when you want to add letters to the beginning or end of a link, including pluralizations and tense changes.
  • Example: A link to the South Korea article for the words "South Koreans" can be obtained as follows:
[[South Korea]]ns
  • Example: A link to the Kitten article for the word "Kittens" can be obtained as follows:
  • Complex changes Manual changes of link text to articles must be done as follows:
[[Article name|Link text here]]
  • Example: So making a link to The Fonz appear as "Fonzes" is achieved by typing:
[[The Fonz|Fonzes]]

Simply put, be practical when redirecting pages. If you can make a link manually, it's often better than making an unnecessary redirect page.
