I knew there was a page on social change. So on a page where social change was mentioned i made a link to [[Social change]]. But it looked like a link to a page that doesn't exist. So i checked the spelling and the actual page is [[Social Change]]. I imagine this kind of thing is going to happen many times to me and other people. I checked right away and fixed it, but not everyone will do this, and we will end up with multiple pages on the same topic, creating lots of work for wiki editors to merge pages, fix links, etc. So, i am wondering if there is a setting for MediaWiki that we can change so that it treats [[Social Change]], [[Social change]], [[social Change]] and [[social change]] all as the same thing. --[[User:John Abbe|John Abbe]] 02:17, 21 December 2005 (CET)
