Can someone set up some redirects for this page from Bearing,Bearings,and variations which has capital letters (compass Bearings/Compass bearings) as I don't know how to.Matthew7785 14:00, 12 May 2008 (PDT)

Actually, it'll need to be renamed first. It should be "Compass bearings" with a lowercase "b" to match the Lostpedia conventions. It'll need a SysOp to sort that. Then we can set redirects to the correct page.--TechNic|talk|conts 14:04, 12 May 2008 (PDT)
I just set up the redirects. I guess we will have to go back and fix them once the original page has been renamed: Bearing Bearings Compass_Bearing. Also, For your refrence, the mediawiki redirection syntax is here:

2 Bearings?

If this isn't the place to ask this, then please let me know, but why is the bearing different in the two episodes? Maybe I don't know much about navigation, but isn't the idea that you have to take the same "road" into the island? UvulaBob 23:33, 30 May 2008 (PDT)

  • I thought about that too; my guess is that since compass bearings are relative to your location, it's 325 degrees from the Pala ferry dock for Michael and 305 from the beach camp for Lapidus to wherever the 'gap' in the field around the Island is. --Thenumbersdude 18:12, 1 June 2008 (PDT)
