Fixing project links

The Benson Genealogists page has a link to the Benson Project. Unfortunately, it goes to the Benton Project page. I can't find anywhere to fix it, or to make a suggestion to fix it. Help?

This happens because Project:Benson and Project:Benton are both redirected to Space:Benton_Name_Study.

It's a method for picking up all the variant spellings of one name.

I'm not sure why it is linking there, but there is not currently a Benson ONS project.

You may want to move this question to WikiTree Tech and add bugs to the tags.

Link to Benson genealogists page:

https://www.wikitree.com/genealogists/BENSON

That's the problem page. That's where the Benson project link goes to Benton.  I'd like to create/contribute to a Benson project page - there are dozens of European sources for US/Canada Benson linkes.

It's not a bug - it was a fat-fingered typo! Sorry. sad  The link to the Benton Name Study has been removed.

As Deb said, there is currently not a Benson Name Study.  Would you like to start one?  Further details about the project are here:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Name_Studies

and the signup thread is here
