    area name spelling concerns

    I've noticed a few repeated spellings of certain areas (i.e. Abaddon vs. Abbadon and Acheron vs. Archeron) throughout the wiki. Are both of these actually correct? I'm aware that some areas are named differently depending on the region, but is this also the result of such?

    I don't think it changes in the game, but it should be consistent on the wiki. I doubt we'll ever achieve complete uniformity, with typos and human error (Andariel vs. Andariel vs. Anderial vs. etc), but it's certainly something to strive for. In the body of an article a typo here or there doesn't really matter. When it would matter is if it's a page link, since then it would be... teh broken.

    The wiki values ease of use over pickiness though, so multiple page names are not out of the question. For instance, when I get around to making such a page I'll likely make a Blizcon and Blizzcon and have one redirect to the other.
