Disambig?

I don't understand the point of this page -- Kermit is a redirect to Kermit the Frog, which I think it should be. -- Danny (talk) 19:50, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure I get it either, especially since four (Baby Kermit, Reporter Kermit, Kid Kermit, and Animated Kermit) are just variations, already linked to either on the main Kermit page or in seperate variant pages. Two are Kermit spoofs (Pig, Protozoa), one is a city, one is a Muppet designer, and the rest are just gag names from the T-shirt sketch. I guess I can understand one, out of curiosity, wanting to stick them in a gallery just to see how it looks. On the other hand, to me, disambig pages work best either when a) the names are so close, and generally seperated only by specifying show or species, that confusion or incorrect linking is likely or b) to keep a page from being over-burdened with "See Alsos" (as with Mother Goose (disambiguation)). While some may well confuse the different T-shirt Kermits, in general, this strikes me as less useful even than, say, Muppets in Cap and Gowns. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 19:59, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
The two are about as useful as any of the other fun lists we've put together elsewhere on the wiki. — Scott (talk) 20:04, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Point, I guess. But in that case, can we move this to one of the list subcats, then? It seems like an excuse for a gallery (albeit an interesting one) moreso than an actual navigational tool. Actually, I should look at some of those myself. I know I created Griffins, and it's in disambiguation, but apart from needing images, it's structured more as a list than a disambiguation page, with explanatory text and so on, and room for expansion on that score. It should probably be turned into either one or the other -- Andrew Leal (talk) 20:13, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't realize it was meant to be a list. I thought it was supposed to be an actual disambig page. -- Danny (talk) 20:23, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, just because we've generally been limiting text on disambig pages to a general "Could refer to the following," and avoiding things like Wikipedia links, which in this case helps the page. But the Griffins page does need work (but then so do a lot of things on the Wiki, and since it's fairly Creature exclusive, I admit I put it on the backburner). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 20:27, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
