This is an essay on the guidelines for categorizing redirects, the section of the Manual of Style on self-references to avoid, and Pushing to 1.0.
It contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. This page is not an encyclopedia article, nor is it one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, as it has not been thoroughly vetted by the community. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.
|This page in a nutshell: How do editors decide whether or not any given type of article-namespace redirect is suitable for an offline, CD/DVD or print version of Wikipedia? printworthy or unprintworthy?|
Don't let the "true title" fool you – redirects are not "witches", they're just... well... sometimes perhaps just a bit too "bewitchin' and beguilin'". This essay is about redirect pages, more specifically, the printworthiness or printability of redirect pages that are in article namespace (mainspace). So here is the place to show existing ideas and to come up with new ideas (while sometimes discarding old ideas).
This essay will hopefully lead all of us to a more and more useful guideline for determining which mainspace redirects are printworthy and which are unprintworthy.
