    • If the phrase is a slogan, then use {{R from slogan}}; if it is a quotation, then use {{R from quotation}}.

Printworthiness[edit]

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from phrases to more general coverage are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are thought to be 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:
{{Redr|from phrase|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from phrase|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
