  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from birth names are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:

{{Redr|from birth name|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from birth name|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
