Template:R fully protected/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


  • This redirect category (rcat) template populates Category:Protected redirects by default.
  • When template {{Redirect category shell}} (Rcat shell) is used to add one or more rcats to a redirect, there is no need to include this rcat. Rcat shell detects protection levels automatically, so by default it will add this rcat to a redirect when it is first protected and then remove it from the redirect if and when protection is lifted. See Rcat shell's template documentation for details.
  • If used by itself, add this rcat to a redirect as follows:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R fully protected}}
This is in accordance with the instructions given at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • This rcat may be used to categorize fully protected redirects. Adding this rcat and populating the Protected redirects category does not in and of itself protect the redirect. Page protection can only be engaged by administrators.

  • In main-article namespace, many fully protected redirects are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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:
