: No. I disagree. [[Scandinavia]], [[Nordic countries]], [[Nordic Europe]], and [[Northern Europe]] are different regions. Although they overlap, they are not entirely the same. Only redirect IDENTICAL articles. '''Scandinavia''' is quite clearly defined and if you are redirecting this to [[Northern Europe]] you then cannot redirect [[Nordic countries]] or [[Nordic Europe]] to the same place. Certainly [[Nordic Europe]] could redirect to [[Nordic countries]], but not the other way as [[Greenland]] is not in Europe. Having multiple overlaping regions helps the traveler define what places are of interest. -- [[User:Huttite|Huttite]] 18:18, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)

No. I disagree. Scandinavia, Nordic countries, Nordic Europe, and Northern Europe are different regions. Although they overlap, they are not entirely the same. Only redirect IDENTICAL articles. Scandinavia is quite clearly defined and if you are redirecting this to Northern Europe you then cannot redirect Nordic countries or Nordic Europe to the same place. Certainly Nordic Europe could redirect to Nordic countries, but not the other way as Greenland is not in Europe. Having multiple overlaping regions helps the traveler define what places are of interest. -- Huttite 18:18, 5 Feb 2005 (EST)
