Template:R from given name

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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:

  • From a given name: This is a redirect from a person's given name. It is used because Wikipedia has only one biographical article of a person by this given name, or because one individual is ubiquitously known by this given name (other persons who share this name might be listed at a primary topic disambiguation page).

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from given name}}
}}
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 from given name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any mainspace redirect from a given name that targets a longer version of the subject's name. This type of redirect would be used because Wikipedia has only one biographical article of a person by that given name, or because one individual is ubiquitously known by that given name (other persons who share that name might be listed at a primary topic disambiguation page).
  • The sort to Category:Given names, which is an article category and not a redirect category, was asked for by contributors who monitor that category for maintenance needs. If necessary, it can be suppressed by using the unnamed parameter, |1=, in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from given name|1=nocat}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from given name|nocat}}
}}
and if applied individually:
{{R from given name|nocat}}
That will suppress the redirect's population of Category:Given names, and it will still populate the Redirects from given names category.

Aliases

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, some given-name redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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:

Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
