Template:R from personal 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 personal name: This is a redirect from an individual's personal name to an article titled with the subject's professional stage name, pen name, or other better known moniker.
    • This redirect leads to the title in accordance with the naming conventions for common names; it may help writing and aid searches. It is not necessary to replace these redirected links with a piped link.
    • If this is the name of a living person, then one or more reliable sources must be included in the target article that will support the existence of this personal name, or else a reference(s) must be added to this redirect's talk page. This is in accord with Wikipedia's biography of living persons (BLP) policy, which applies to all Wikipedia pages, to include redirects.
    • Use this rcat only on redirects that are in Wikipedia's main-article namespace, and only when the personal name differs from the subject's name when born. If the redirect title is the subject's birth name, use {{R from birth name}} instead.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from personal name}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name) (middle)}}
Use the DEFAULTSORT magic word to ensure that the redirect is sorted in the categories by surname rather than 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 personal name}}
{{R unprintworthy}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name) (middle)}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect from a subject's personal name, if other than a birth name, to its corresponding common name. If the redirect title is the subject's birth name, then use {{R from birth name}} instead.
  • By default, this template categorizes a redirect as unprintworthy. To subdue this default sort and categorize a personal name as printworthy, use the unnamed parameter in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from personal name|1=printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from personal name|printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
and if used individually:
{{R from personal name|printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
That will subdue the default Unprintworthy redirects category and populate Category:Printworthy redirects.
  • Important note: If this is the personal name of a living person, then one or more reliable sources must be included either in the target article or on the talk page of the redirect. This is in accord with Wikipedia's biographies of living persons policy, which applies to all pages on the project, to include redirects. Any personal-name redirect that does not have a reliable source(s) to support the personal name may be speedily deleted as a BLP violation.
    • The following phrase, ... or else this redirect's talk page must be created and the reference(s) added there, will appear in the rcat text if the redirect does not have an existing talk page (if it is red-linked).
