Template:R with possibilities

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:

  • With possibilities: This is a redirect from a title that potentially could be expanded into a new article or other type of associated Wikipedia page. The topic described by this title is more detailed than is currently provided on the target page, or section of that page.
    • When the target page becomes too large, this redirect may be replaced with a page carved out of the target page. See also {{R to section}}, and when appropriate, use both together.
    • If the topic is not susceptible to a major expansion, then instead of this rcat, tag this redirect with {{R to section}} or {{R to list entry}} as applicable.
    • Do not replace links to this redirect with a link directly to the target page.

Usage

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
Note: The above text and category links apply to non-template redirects with possibilities of becoming separate pages. In template namespace the text will be different, and the redirects will populate Category:Template redirects with possibilities.
  • Use this redirect category (rcat) template for any redirect that, in your opinion, may stand alone as an article on a notable subject or a template. If you see a redirect with this template, and you are moved to write the article, then be BOLD!
    • For guidance on how to start a new page from a section, please see Wikipedia:Summary style. It is important that the topic is notable in accordance with the guideline, and that the article is structured in line with the manual of style; otherwise there is a possibility the article will be re-merged and turned back into a redirect.
  • Apply this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R with possibilities}}
{{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 page name)]]

{{R with possibilities}}
This is in accord with the instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
