Purpose[edit]

It transforms links-to-redirects-to-lists to links-to-sections-of-lists. In other words:

  • Some lists, like List of minor Star Wars characters, have redirects for individual items in the lists, e.g. Captain Panaka.
  • Lots of articles link to these redirects - 7 mainspace pages linked to Captain Panaka (before the bot was used on that list).
  • This can be highly annoying, because those redirects go to the top of the page.
  • Therefore, this bot turns [[Captain Panaka]], wherever it exists, into [[List of minor Star Wars characters#Panaka, Captain|Captain Panaka]]. And so on and so forth, for each list it runs on.

I've been finding fodder for it by looking under Category:Lists of fictional things.

I saw your bot repairing links redirecting to lists etc on some of the articles in my watchlist, it seems to be functioning perfectly. Se, here you go:
