When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} may be used to add one or more rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • From a comics merge: This is a redirect from a comics title that was merged into the target article. This page was kept as a redirect in order to preserve its edit history after its content was merged into the target article's content. Please do not remove the tag that generates this text (unless the need to recreate content on this page has been demonstrated), nor delete this page.

Usage[edit]

Speech balloon.svg This redirect category (rcat) template is used to tag any mainspace redirect page that results when a comics article is merged into another article. This rcat populates Category:Comics redirects from merges by default, which is used to track all comics article merges that might result in the breakage of links, both internal and external, if a redirect is not installed properly.
  • For any comics redirect (not a talk-page redirect) found that was left behind from a page merge and has not been so sorted, add this rcat in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R comics from merge}}
}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R comics from merge}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • If this page was merged into a page that is different from the target page, then the unnamed parameter may be used to note the name of the other page in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R comics from merge|1=(title of article into which former content article was merged)}}
}}
or (the |1= is not necessary):
{{Rcat shell|
{{R comics from merge|(title of article into which former content article was merged)}}
}}
and if used individually:
{{R comics from merge|(title of article into which former content article was merged)}}
  • If the content of the redirect page has been merged to a specific section, list entry or anchor, then also use one of the following to categorize the redirect as appropriate:
  • If the merged page had the same or very similar content as the target page, then also apply:
  • Any comics redirect that has a substantive page history that was not the result of a page merge may be tagged with the {{R with history}} rcat instead.

Printworthiness[edit]

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from merged comics articles are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R comics from merge}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R comics from merge}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
