Shouldn't this be reversed, with the article on this page, and MMORPG redirecting here? tmtoulouse 06:59, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Ya think? Well, I found a place to link MMORPG, and WP does it the way you suggest, so I was ornery and did it this way. I am thinking of redirecting every combination of M,M,P,G,R,O to the article... If you really think it should be the long spelled-out version, I'll swap 'em. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:05, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Do we have something about this in our "style guide? Redirects to abbreviations versus long form? tmtoulouse 07:08, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
What "style guide"? You mean that sub-page of my user page? Anyway, I don't mind moving MMORGP to "Massively multiplayer online role-playing game", and redirecting this to that, but the abbr. title actually makes for an easier/lazier lead sentence. PS, I think the phrase is awful English. massively is an adverb, but it's used to describe a nounish phrase. It should be "massive multiloser online wank off game". oops, initials no longer work... ħumanUser talk:Human 07:14, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
I vote burn the lot for off mission, but that is just me. - π 07:37, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Considering it discusses the art of creating personae who infiltrate websites that we abhor, how far off-mission can it be? It's not about the games, it's a new perspective on the idea. It's also something people do "to us" here on RW (aka trolling?). ħumanUser talk:Human 08:58, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
