Template:R from incomplete disambiguation
When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:
This page is a redirect. The following categories are used to track and monitor this redirect:
From incomplete disambiguation: This is a redirect from an incomplete disambiguation, a page name that is too ambiguous to be the title of an article or other project page. Such titles should redirect to an appropriate disambiguation page (or section of it), or to a more complete disambiguation.
When appropriate, protection levels are automatically sensed, described and categorized.
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 incomplete disambiguation: This is a redirect from an incomplete disambiguation, a page name that is too ambiguous to be the title of an article or other project page. Such titles should redirect to an appropriate disambiguation page (or section of it), or to a more complete disambiguation.
Template documentation​[​view​] [edit] [history] [purge]
This template is used on approximately 41,000 pages and changes may be widely noticed. Test changes in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
This template should not be substituted nor used to tag soft redirects.
Usage
Use this rcat template in any namespace.
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]] {{Rcat shell| {{R from incomplete disambiguation}} }}
and when the redirect is in article mainspace, printworthiness should also be tagged:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]] {{Rcat shell| {{R from incomplete disambiguation}} {{R unprintworthy}} }}
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 from incomplete disambiguation}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any redirect in any namespace that has been disambiguated, usually with parentheses "()" after the title, and is still too ambiguous to be an article title or other project page name. Such titles should redirect to an appropriate disambiguation page (or section of it), or to a more complete disambiguation. An example is Avatar (film), which partially and incompletely disambiguates the film title.
  • By default, this template tags redirects as unprintworthy. To tag and categorize a redirect as printworthy, use the bar key ( ¦ ) on your keyboard to type the addition ¦printworthy in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell| {{R from incomplete disambiguation|printworthy}} {{R printworthy}} }}
Note: The bar key ( ¦ ) on the keyboard renders as a pipe ( | ) on the screen.
That will subdue the default unprintworthy category and populate Category:Printworthy redirects instead.
