Leland has finally cleared up the confusion between Sinya's and Maris Brood's tonfa-weapons. Sinya isn't using lightsabers, so I've yet again moved Tonfa-style lightsaber to Tonfa-style energy sword. However, since Maris use lightsaber tonfas, we need an article for them as well. Currently, Tonfa-style lightsaber redirects to the energy sword article. How do I create a new page for the lightsaber weapons and redirect the link? DarthMRN 00:40, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Are you just asking how to make a redirect? If so, just put #REDIRECT [[Bob]] on the page, with the desired page in place of "Bob", obviously.
    • Ah, nevermind, I think I get it now. Go to the page that is the redirect. It will take you to the other article. At the top, it will say "redirected from whatever". Click on "whatever". It will take you to the redirect. Then just edit that page, and there you go. -- Ozzel 00:53, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
      • Well, Jaymach seems to have fixed it now. But that's how you do it, for future reference. -- Ozzel 00:55, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I'd like to see the confirmation that the older tonfas aren't lightsabers. -- Darth Culator (Talk)(Kills) 01:00, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
    • [1] Tasty could have been clearer IMO, but given the elusive, "you-won't-be-able-to-use-this-against-me-later"-nature of most of his anwers about things that aren't clearly stated somewhere, this is as good as it gets. DarthMRN 08:54, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
