Honestly, I don't really approve of the use of "sphinges" when "sphinxes" is considered to be as appropriate. It needlessly complicates the syntax. I propose we move to the more grokkable plural. Barinellos (talk) 01:35, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

Sphingian is an adjective, whereas Sphinxian is not even a term. I suppose I need not stating my view on this, but it's one person's opinion and FWIW, so whatever really. --Magic Mage (talk!) 06:48, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
Wait, what? Syntax? I don't mean to be rude or anything but I'm afraid I don't understand you. Really. And this isn't to do with me at the moment being less than chipper. --Magic Mage (talk!) 07:42, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
I do agree with Bari, here. Sphinxes is the in-game used plural, see the flavortext of Arcane Sanctum, Mindlock Orb, Serra Sphinx and Sphinx of Jwar Isle --Hunter61 (talk) 07:57, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
Oh my God. Sure, sure then. T_________T --Magic Mage (talk!) 07:58, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
Should we just start addressing this ASAP? If not, what quorum (a number or percentage of active users) should be reached or how long should pass? --Magic Mage (talk!) 07:59, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
Wouldn't it have been more apposite to have this discussion at Sphinges (while it was that?)?
I have moved things accordingly. We knew how that'd've been anyway. Will be working on SOPs, though. They're important. --Magic Mage (talk!) 08:02, 4 September 2012 (EDT)
