Suggested uses[edit]

  1. tagging of redirects from inverted to natural language terms, such as Aaron, Henry LouisHank Aaron or Chemistry, inorganicInorganic chemistry.
  2. tagging of redirects from disambiguation pages to lists of terms, such as Baggio, where the surname "Baggio" is the only commonality among disambiguated items, and List of people by name provides a comprehensive listing, obviating the need to repeat data in two places

Paine Ellsworth, I strongly disagree that these redirects are inherently unprintworthy. If we actually made a print Wikipedia, we'd have to make a decision whether personal names would be indexed by first name, last name, or both. I think there's a very strong chance last name would be used, as is typical in indexes. Can we agree to make this Rcat agnostic on printworthiness, if not outright printworthy? See also Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2015 October 8#Duncan, Tim (and many, many, many more), where I remark that I've seen librarians praise these redirects on Wikipedia. (And how often do you see anyone outside the encyclopedia praising redirects?) --BDD (talk) 16:07, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Agreed, BDD – these redirects are now sorted to the printworthy cat. Painius  05:54, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Pleasure! Paine
