Permanently protected template

Template:R to decade

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:

  • To a decade: This is a redirect from a year (or years) to to the associated decade article. Years from 1700–500 BCE should redirect to the relevant decade per Wikipedia:Timeline standards.
    • Do not replace these redirected links with a link directly to the target page. Individual articles may be created for these years in the future.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to decade}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
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 to decade}}
{{R printworthy}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any redirect from a year(s) to the associated decade article. Years from 1700 BC to 500 BC should redirect to the relevant decade per Wikipedia:Timeline standards.
  • Important note: The {{R with possibilities}} rcat is automatically added, so it should not be included in the tagging of the redirect. If it is included in the tagging of the redirect, then it will appear twice on the redirect page.
  • There may be the rare redirect that has little or no possibility of becoming an article. For these, the associated categories, Redirects with possibilities and its default Printworthy redirects, may be suppressed by use of the unnamed parameter in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R to decade|without}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
or
{{R to decade|without}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
This will sort the redirect to Category:Unprintworthy redirects instead of the Printworthy redirects and Redirects with possibilities categories.
  • Do not replace these redirected links with a link directly to the target page. Individual articles may be created for these titles years into the future.
