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

When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add up to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect to an article about a similar topic or related term. For more information follow the category link.
    • Redirects from related terms are different than redirects from related words, since a related topic or term is more likely to warrant a full subtopic in the target page, and has a much better possibility of someday becoming an article.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects to related topics are considered printworthy; however, there may be others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort (value) 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|to related topic|printworthy}}
{{Redr|to related topic|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
