Template:R from non-neutral name

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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 a non-neutral name: This is a redirect from a title that is a non-neutral, perhaps pejorative, controversial or offensive word, phrase or name. It leads to the target page in accordance with Wikipedia naming conventions for neutrality in page titles and can help writing and searches. Normally, these redirected links should be replaced with links that go directly to the target page.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from non-neutral name}}
}}
and when the redirect is in article mainspace, printworthiness should also be tagged:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from non-neutral name}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
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 page name)]]

{{R from non-neutral name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace from a non-neutral title, which is any word, phrase or name that is pejorative, not neutral, controversial or otherwise offensive and is therefore unsuitable to be used as a page name. Links to these redirects should normally be replaced with links directly to the target page names. An example of an exception would be where an article specifically discusses the etymology/origin of the non-neutral name.

Printworthiness

  • |printworthy parameter – By default, this template tags and categorizes redirects as unprintworthy. Use this parameter to subdue this behavior and populate Category:Printworthy redirects:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from non-neutral name|1=printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from non-neutral name|printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
and when used individually:
{{R from non-neutral name|printworthy}}
