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 page such as a new template. The topic described by this title may be more detailed than is currently provided on the target page or in a section of that page. When used on a template redirect, it will automatically populate Category:Template redirects with possibilities.
    • When the target page becomes too large or for any reason a new page would be an improvement, this redirect may be replaced with an article, template or other project page that is carved out of the target page. See also {{R to section}} and use together with this rcat when appropriate.
    • If the topic of the redirect is not susceptible to expansion, then use other rcats such as {{R to section}} or {{R to list entry}} instead.
    • Since a new page may be created, links to this redirect should not be replaced with a direct link to the target page.

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
  • 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.


Please note that common misspellings can also be useful redirects.
