It is used because Wikipedia has only one biographical article of a person by this surname, or because one individual is ubiquitously known by this surname (other persons who share this name might be listed at a primary topic disambiguation page).

Usage

  • Template {{This is a redirect}} may also be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect.
  • Use this rcat on all mainspace redirects from a surname. These redirects are used because Wikipedia may have only one biographical article of a person by a certain surname, or because one individual is ubiquitously known by a certain surname (other persons who share this name might be listed at a primary topic disambiguation page).
  • The sort to Category:Surnames is for those who monitor these pages for possible editing needs. It can be suppressed by using the 1st parameter in the following manner:
{{R from surname|nocat}}
or if used in the {{This is a redirect}} (Redr) template:
{{Redr|from surname|p1=nocat}}

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, some surname redirects are printworthy; however, there are 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:

Examples:
{{Redr|from surname|printworthy}}

Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
