Jump to: navigation, search

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 birth name: This is a redirect from a person's birth name (née or) to a more common name or a related topic.
    • Use this rcat to tag mainspace redirects when the title matches the subject's name given to them at birth. If the redirect is a personal name that differs from the birth name, then use {{R from personal name}} instead. In either case, be sure to include {{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}} for correct category sorting of this person's name.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from birth name}}
}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}}
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 from birth name}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag all mainspace redirects from a title that is a person's name received at birth. If the redirect is a personal name that differs from the person's birth name, then use {{R from personal name}} instead. To ensure that the redirect is correctly sorted to its categories, be familiar with the helpful information found at Wikipedia:SORTKEY.

Printworthiness

  • 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:

Examples:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from birth name}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

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