  • Use this rcat only on mainspace redirects from common nouns to a related word, such as the same root word in the form of a different part of speech.
  • For proper nouns use {{R from proper noun}} instead.
  • If a common-noun redirect is not in mainspace, then please do not tag it with this rcat.

  • In main-article namespace, many common-noun redirects to related words are considered unprintworthy; however, there may be others that are thought to be printworthy, 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:

{{Redr|from common noun|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from common noun|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
