Pre-empt the node named 'Friar'

I'd like to propose that the gods delete the user named friar, and make Friar redirect to / be an alias for Level 9: Friar. This one is particularly desirable because level Friar is when certain very interesting powers are bestowed; wanting to link to that level's "home node" is therefore a very common occurrence.

Update:

Thanks to de-merphq for obliging. The "home node" of the Friar level has now been renamed as Friar. This allows people to refer to it directly by a meaningfully titled shortcut, Friar. (Of course, this is more useful in ephemeral communications, like the cb. Nodes should preferably link by node id - [id://17645].)

We're building the house of the future together.

    Very good proposition (++)

    Can't remember having seen that done yet... but it sounds more than reasonable.

    I've renamed friar as _friar_. Not sure how to redirect Friar tho. Maybe just lose the level part?

      That's my inclination. But I'm afraid there may be some contexts out there in which the title will make less sense without the "level" part.

      demerphq++ for being da man yet again.

        Then they should be given as [ ... |Friar] ?

        Note that if we ever implement user-settable level titles, those "powers" nodes will be titled as just "Level 9", etc.
