Wikipedia:Shortcuts[edit]

The WP:WP shortcut also known as [[WP:]] or WP:cuts is a great tool to find relevant content in the project namespace. Actually I was looking for a "featured template" feature, but I only found "featured lists", and Wikipedia:Shortcuts is certainly a list... ;-) Omniplex  08:52, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

  • This is a worse self-ref than the list of mathematical lists - I would say it is not eligible. Can you imagine a featured article from the Wikipedia namespace? -- ALoan (Talk) 09:12, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
    Sure, as I said I was looking for a "featured template" section. The meta-work making the encyclopedic work possible is important, unlike obscure lists or portals. Omniplex  21:36, 15 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose. How is this "Wikipedia's best work" in terms of encyclopedic content? How would a person who's not interested in editing Wikipedia find this useful? -- Rune Welsh | ταλκ 11:38, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose It's useful for sure, but Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and this is just a bunch of technical stuff external to it. AlbinoMonkey (Talk) 12:09, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose as above. Its not that special either. --Jared [T]/[+] 22:53, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose, not exactly featured list content. Phoenix2 00:45, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose, and suggest removal per WP:SNOW and WP:UCS. This is not what WP:FL is meant for. —Nightstallion (?) 20:18, 15 March 2006 (UTC)
    Its purpose (only for the article namespace) was obviously unclear for me. Omniplex  21:36, 15 March 2006 (UTC)
    Mh, okay; now you know, though. Featured *REGEXP* is just for things in the article/image/portal namespace. —Nightstallion (?) 10:23, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
    Mmm - do we actually have an article namespace, let alone a list one? -- ALoan (Talk) 10:58, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
    I thought everything which is not in any other namespace was generally considered to be in the article/main namespace...? —Nightstallion (?) 12:24, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

    Help:Namespace says (main), but in shortcuts WP:FAC, WP:AFD, etc. the A stands for article. Technically most lists are ordinary articles. Omniplex  12:42, 16 March 2006 (UTC)
