I was just hitting the random button and I came across a one-line article, Great River, which basically said "Great River refers to Anduin" so I just changed it to a redirect to the main Anduin article.

There seems to be a lot of these though (Dwarrowdelf, Phurunargian, etc.) so should I continue doing this or will be stepping on a pre-existing policy?

If I'm not mistaking, the policy is: if it has an etymology, it gets an own entry. I just took care of Phurunargian on that matter. This seems to be the most extensive of several / (!) inquiries into the matter. -- Ederchil 12:57, 10 February 2008 (EST)
