Redirects for discussion (RfD) is the place where potentially problematic redirects are discussed. Items usually stay listed for a week or so, after which they are deleted, kept, or retargeted.

Please do not change the target of the redirect while it is under discussion. This adds unnecessary complication to the discussion for both potential closers and participants.

Before listing a redirect for discussion[edit]

Please be aware of these general policies, which apply here as elsewhere:

The guiding principles of RfD[edit]

When should we delete a redirect?[edit]


The major reasons why deletion of redirects is harmful are:

  • a redirect may contain non-trivial edit history;
  • if a redirect is reasonably old (or is the result of moving a page that has been there for quite some time), then it is possible that its deletion will break incoming links (such links coming from older revisions of Wikipedia pages, from edit summaries, from other Wikimedia projects or from elsewhere on the internet, do not show up in "What links here").

Therefore consider the deletion only of either harmful redirects or of recent ones.

Reasons for deleting[edit]

You might want to delete a redirect if one or more of the following conditions is met (but note also the exceptions listed below this list):

  1. The redirect page makes it unreasonably difficult for users to locate similarly named articles via the search engine. For example, if the user searches for "New Articles", and is redirected to a disambiguation page for "Articles", it would take much longer to get to the newly added articles on Wikipedia.
  2. The redirect might cause confusion. For example, if "Adam B. Smith" was redirected to "Andrew B. Smith", because Andrew was accidentally called Adam in one source, this could cause confusion with the article on Adam Smith, so the redirect should be deleted.
  3. The redirect is offensive or abusive, such as redirecting "Joe Bloggs is a Loser" to "Joe Bloggs" (unless "Joe Bloggs is a Loser" is legitimately discussed in the article), or "Joe Bloggs" to "Loser". (Speedy deletion criterion G10 and G3 may apply.) See also § Neutrality of redirects.
  4. The redirect constitutes self-promotion or spam. (Speedy deletion criterion G11 may apply.)
  5. The redirect makes no sense, such as redirecting "Apple" to "Orange". (Speedy deletion criterion G1 may apply.)
  6. It is a cross-namespace redirect out of article space, such as one pointing into the User or Wikipedia namespace. The major exception to this rule are the pseudo-namespace shortcut redirects, which technically are in the main article space. Some long-standing cross-namespace redirects are also kept because of their long-standing history and potential usefulness. "MOS:" redirects, for example, are an exception to this rule. (Note also the existence of namespace aliases such as WP:. Speedy deletion criterion R2 may apply if the target namespace is something other than Category:, Template:, Wikipedia:, Help:, or Portal:.)
  7. If the redirect is broken, meaning it redirects to an article that does not exist, it can be immediately deleted under speedy deletion criterion G8. You should check that there is not an alternative place it could be appropriately redirected to first or that it has become broken through vandalism.
  8. If the redirect is a novel or very obscure synonym for an article name that is not mentioned in the target, it is unlikely to be useful. In particular, redirects in a language other than English to a page whose subject is unrelated to that language (or a culture that speaks that language) should generally not be created. (Implausible typos or misnomers are candidates for speedy deletion criterion R3, if recently created.)
  9. If the target article needs to be moved to the redirect title, but the redirect has been edited before and has a history of its own, then the title needs to be freed up to make way for the move. If the move is uncontroversial, tag the redirect for G6 speedy deletion, or alternatively (with the suppressredirect user right; available to page movers and admins), perform a round-robin move. If not, take the article to Requested moves.
  10. If the redirect could plausibly be expanded into an article, and the target article contains virtually no information on the subject.

Reasons for not deleting[edit]

However, avoid deleting such redirects if:

  1. They have a potentially useful page history, or an edit history that should be kept to comply with the licensing requirements for a merge (see Wikipedia:Merge and delete). On the other hand, if the redirect was created by renaming a page with that name, and the page history just mentions the renaming, and for one of the reasons above you want to delete the page, copy the page history to the Talk page of the article it redirects to. The act of renaming is useful page history, and even more so if there has been discussion on the page name.
  2. They would aid accidental linking and make the creation of duplicate articles less likely, whether by redirecting a plural to a singular, by redirecting a frequent misspelling to a correct spelling, by redirecting a misnomer to a correct term, by redirecting to a synonym, etc. In other words, redirects with no incoming links are not candidates for deletion on those grounds because they are of benefit to the browsing user. Some extra vigilance by editors will be required to minimize the occurrence of those frequent misspellings in the article texts because the linkified misspellings will not appear as broken links; consider tagging the redirect with the ((R from misspelling)) template to assist editors in monitoring these misspellings.
  3. They aid searches on certain terms. For example, users who might see the "Keystone State" mentioned somewhere but do not know what that refers to will be able to find out at the Pennsylvania (target) article.
  4. Deleting redirects runs the risk of breaking incoming or internal links. For example, redirects resulting from page moves should not normally be deleted without good reason. Links that have existed for a significant length of time, including CamelCase links and old subpage links, should be left alone in case there are any existing links on external pages pointing to them. See also Wikipedia:Link rot § Link rot on non-Wikimedia sites.
  5. Someone finds them useful. Hint: If someone says they find a redirect useful, they probably do. You might not find it useful—this is not because the other person is being untruthful, but because you browse Wikipedia in different ways. Evidence of usage can be gauged by using the wikishark or pageviews tool on the redirect to see the number of views it gets.
  6. The redirect is to a closely related word form, such as a plural form to a singular form.

Neutrality of redirects[edit]

Just as article titles using non-neutral language are permitted in some circumstances, so are such redirects. Because redirects are less visible to readers, more latitude is allowed in their names, therefore perceived lack of neutrality in redirect names is not a sufficient reason for their deletion. In most cases, non-neutral but verifiable redirects should point to neutrally titled articles about the subject of the term. Non-neutral redirects may be tagged with ((R from non-neutral name)).

Non-neutral redirects are commonly created for three reasons:

  1. Articles that are created using non-neutral titles are routinely moved to a new neutral title, which leaves behind the old non-neutral title as a working redirect (e.g. ClimategateClimatic Research Unit email controversy).
  2. Articles created as POV forks may be deleted and replaced by a redirect pointing towards the article from which the fork originated (e.g. Barack Obama Muslim rumor → deleted and now redirected to Barack Obama religion conspiracy theories).
  3. The subject matter of articles may be represented by some sources outside Wikipedia in non-neutral terms. Such terms are generally avoided in Wikipedia article titles, per the words to avoid guidelines and the general neutral point of view policy. For instance the non-neutral expression "Attorneygate" is used to redirect to the neutrally titled Dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy. The article in question has never used that title, but the redirect was created to provide an alternative means of reaching it because a number of press reports use the term.

The exceptions to this rule would be redirects that are not established terms and are unlikely to be useful, and therefore may be nominated for deletion, perhaps under deletion reason #3. However, if a redirect represents an established term that is used in multiple mainstream reliable sources, it should be kept even if non-neutral, as it will facilitate searches on such terms. Please keep in mind that RfD is not the place to resolve most editorial disputes.

Closing notes[edit]

Details at: Administrator instructions for RfD.

Nominations should remain open, per policy, about a week before they are closed, unless they meet the general criteria for speedy deletion, the criteria for speedy deletion of a redirect, or are not valid redirect discussion requests (e.g. are actually move requests).

How to list a redirect for discussion[edit]

STEP I.
Tag the redirect.

  Enter ((subst:rfd|content= at the very beginning of the redirect page you are listing for discussion and enter )) at the very end of the page.

  • Please do not mark the edit as minor (m).
  • Please include in the edit summary the phrase:
    Nominated for RfD: see [[Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion]].
  • Save the page ("Publish changes").
  • If you are unable to edit the redirect page because of protection, this step can be omitted, and after step 2 is completed, a request to add the RFD template can be put on the redirect's talk page.
  • If the redirect you are nominating is in template namespace, consider adding |showontransclusion=1 to the RfD tag so that people using the template redirect are aware of the nomination.
STEP II.
List the entry on RfD.

 Click here to edit the section of RfD for today's entries.

  • Enter this text below the date heading:
((subst:Rfd2|redirect=RedirectName|target=TargetArticle|text=The action you would like to occur (deletion, re-targeting, etc.) and the rationale for that action.)) ~~~~
  • For this template:
    • Put the redirect's name in place of RedirectName, put the target article's name in place of TargetArticle, and include a reason after text=.
    • Note that, for this step, the "target article" is the current target of the redirect (if you have a suggestion for a better target, include this in the text that you insert after text=).
  • Please use an edit summary such as:
    Nominating [[RedirectName]]
    (replacing RedirectName with the name of the redirect you are nominating).
  • To list multiple related redirects for discussion, use the following syntax. Repeat line 2 for N number of redirects:
((subst:Rfd2|redirect=RedirectName1|target=TargetArticle1))
((subst:Rfd2|multi=yes|redirect=RedirectName2|target=TargetArticle2))
((subst:Rfd2|multi=yes|redirect=RedirectNameN|target=TargetArticleN|text=The actions you would like to occur (deletion, re-targeting, etc.) and the rationale for those actions.)) ~~~~
  • If the redirect has had previous RfDs, you can add ((Oldrfdlist|previous RfD without brackets|result of previous RfD)) directly after the rfd2 template.
STEP III.
Notify users.

  It is generally considered good practice to notify the creator and main contributors to the redirect that you are nominating the redirect.

To find the main contributors, look in the page history of the redirect. For convenience, the template

((subst:Rfd notice|RedirectName)) ~~~~

may be placed on the creator/main contributors' user talk page to provide notice of the discussion. Please replace RedirectName with the name of the redirect and use an edit summary such as:
Notice of redirect discussion at [[Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion]]

Notices about the RfD discussion may also be left on relevant talk pages.

Philippica

Currently, this spelling is not used in the target article. It is also confusing as a redirect as it is the name of (lost, I think) Ancient Greek text that might be notable anyway, and right now is blue-linked and takes the reader to the wrong place (see Theopompus, author). Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 10:06, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It's the Latin singular for the word. Cicero's Philippics are often given their Latin title, Philippicae (which is how our article on them is titled), and might be referred to in the singular when something is cited to one of them in particular. Presumably the same could be done of the Greek originals, to which the title of Cicero's speeches allude. However, it might make sense to change the target of the redirect to Philippicae, in which case the reason for having it would be more obvious. This should be an easy "keep" unless the title is needed for some other topic. P Aculeius (talk) 14:22, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OlF)

Delete both per unnecessary redundancy with the disambiguator stating a acronym for the subject's name. These redirects existence is like saying the redirects Automated teller machine (ATM) or Network interface card (NIC) should exist. In addition, the acronym isn't correct anyways: The second letter in both redirects' disambiguators is a lowercase "l" ("L"), not an uppercase "I" ("i"). (At the minimum, the latter redirect, Organisation internationale de la Francophonie(OlF), should be deleted per WP:RDAB due to the spacing issue between the title and the disambiguator, and since the properly-spaced variant exists [the former redirect in the nomination, Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OlF)].)

Unlikely misspelling. In addition, seems that this lettering as an acronym is used for quite a few organizations that appear when looking through third party search results; there could reasonably be readers searching for this expecting to find some sort of organization (but none of them seem to currently be mentioned on Wikipedia anywhere.) Also of interest regarding this redirect is that the creation of this redirect was 1 of 3 edits done by its creator in 2007, the editor only ever created the 3 edits in 2007; the other two edits were related to the creation of this redirect and seem somewhat vandalistic, in addition to the creator's user name ending with "ttt" (which seems unlikely to be a coincidence due to their edits.)

  • This is a deletion discussion, and we can make a decision here. This specific scenario is described at WP:SNOWBALL. I declined the recent speedy deletion nomination because the redirect didn't meet WP:R3, not because it's a valuable page. - Eureka Lott 00:29, 24 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    The R3 decline isn't relevant. What is relevant is that we would be deleting an article at RfD - there are only two cases where that is appropriate: (1) when the article was redirected with consensus (this wasn't), (2) when it would be speedily deletable as an article (this isn't, as previously explained WP:CSD explicitly prohibits speedy deletion in this case). WP:SNOWBALL cannot apply unless and until there are an overwhelming number of !votes in favour of a specific outcome, and given the RfD is 2:1 after 3 votes and the AfD is 0:0 after 0 we are not in snowball territory. Given that deletion as an article has been opposed in the past we cannot assume that there will be no opposition when it is actually properly nominated for deletion. I know you don't like this, but policy applies whether you like it or not. Thryduulf (talk) 01:29, 24 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    And before anyone cites WP:IAR - that only applies when the rule being ignored is preventing you improving the encyclopaedia. Deleting pages outside of process is not and cannot under any circumstances be an improvement to the encyclopaedia. Thryduulf (talk) 01:31, 24 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I don't think this reasoning holds: the removal of a malformed CSD tag in 2005 and declined R3 in 2022 have no bearing on the likelihood of the article surviving AfD, which is what SNOWBALL would encourage us to gauge. WP:NOTBURO also applies. signed, Rosguill talk 20:29, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Ты ж мэнэ пидманула

Delete. The Ukrainian name of this Ukrainian song is Ти ж мене підманула. Russian name is Ты ж меня обманула. Ты ж мэнэ пидманула is a very strange beast: this is the Ukrainian name of the song, but written in Russian orthography (spelling). Who on Earth whould type this? Крывіч (talk) 09:14, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Крывіч: I'm a bit lost here on what you mean by this. Are you saying that the redirect is a combination of two different languages? Steel1943 (talk) 00:10, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The song is called Ти ж мене підманула in Ukrainian; however, someone created this redirect with a Russian spelling. Russian and Ukrainian have a different alphabet (the Ukrainian alphabet includes і and є that are not present in the Russian alphabet whereas Russian has ы and э which are not in the Ukrainian alphabet). Correspondingly, someone spelled this Ukrainian phrase using Russian orthography. The Ukrainian phrase as spelled in Russian is meaningless in Russian itself.

Frig (word)

Previous RfDs for this redirect:

Well, here we are again about 7 years later. Please refer to the old discussion from 2015 for the details. Since then, Frig (interjection) was moved to Frig (word), then in 2020, Frig (word) was redirected to Minced oath as a result of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Frig (word). (It has been over two years, and no merge ever occurred, apparently.) And since then, the creator of the aforementioned article, as well as most of these redirects, was blocked and given their own WP:CSD that was active for a few years: WP:X1. My rationale for deleting these is the same as it was back in 2015: These are examples of minced oaths, not the alternative names for the subject "minced oaths". And as it was last time, these redirects are not even mentioned in the target article. (Also, for precedence, on Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2015 September 4, there are several other redirects to Minced oath I nominated that day that were either deleted or retargeted to a page unrelated to Minced oath.)

The current setup of these redirects seems to be a WP:SURPRISE. Most other "color name (color)" redirects target a section in a respective "Shades of whatever color" article where the subject of the redirect is identified and mentioned.

It seems as though the subject of these redirects is a valid color that is either a shade of red or a shade of brown, but the color doesn't seem to be mentioned on those articles.

Not mentioned in the target article, and doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere else on Wikipedia either.

Steel1943 (talk) 22:33, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Anti-globalization

Anti-globalization have now evolved into much wider scope than content of the target article.

The target article, anti-globalization movement, currently mainly describe leftists/socialists who oppost the globalized impact of multinational cooperation and the spread of capitalism.

However, in the past decade or so, a new form of anti-globalization have arisen across the world, marked by leaders like Donald Trump and Le Pen, and political parties like UKIP and AfD.

The target article anti-globalization movement spent only 4 sentences describing this, in a short section of #Nationalist opposition against globalization, and two of the four lines, aka half of it, are to compare and contrast these nationalist activies from anticapitalist movements that are the theme of the article anti-globalization movement.

In my opinion, from the perspective of the entire Wikipedia as an encyclopedia, this ratio of coverage for nationalist anti-globalization compared to socialist anti-globalization are obviously undue, with even some local activities being listed with more details than nationalist anti globalization caused political events that have global and lasting influence. However, the current page of anti-globalization movement is a relatively self-contained page that describe the anticapitalist movement itself, and thus I think it would be bad idea to rewritten entirely to give due weight to the rise of nationalist anti-globalization in the 21st century, instead it could be a better idea to transform the page currently titled anti-globalization into either an article or a disambiation page, pointing to another new page of yet to be decided title that write about nationalist anti-globalization in addition to the anticapitalist anti-globalization movement. The Britiannica article on anti-globalization: [9] discussed the differences and common parts between capitalist anti-globalization movement and nationalist anti-globalization movement, which make me think both courses of actions are possible, either converting the page currently acting as redirect (anti-globalization) into a disambiguation page pointing to separate capitalist/nationalist anti-globalization page, or turn it into a summary page that summarize feature of both sides. But I have not determined which is the best course of action and thus I would like other editors provide some inputs on it.

New antisemitism#Anti-globalization movement provide a bit more relevant content that can be used to establish a new page, no matter it is to be a page for all sort of anti-globalization, or for a new page dedicated to nationalist anti-globalization that the anti-globalization page will become a disambiguation page linking to.

Disclosure: The reason I become aware of this situation was because my previous edit about anti-globalization stance of certain far right part in an Asian country got rolled back by another editor, @Helper201:, who stated that anti-globalization page on Wikipedia is describing a movement, and after more in-depth investigation, I found that it is indeed true that the article of anti-globalization on English Wikipedia mainly describe the anticapitalist movement arising in the West since roughly around Vietnam War, and pay little to no attention to the rise of far-right anti-globalization happening across the world since 2010s, and that due to the existing redirect target being a self-contained complete description of what it is describing, it occurs to me that there exists a need to create a new article to describe the phenomenon.

Search results mostly return information about a US NGO focused on the US's internal democratic culture and not the LIO. Meanwhile, the StarveForUkraine ones are clearly not helfpul and I probably would have R3 deleted them if they appeared on their own, but given that they're clearly part of this set of redirects I decided it would make more sense just to group-RfD them. signed, Rosguill talk 15:34, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Keep - Personally, I'd be inclined to think we should delete both the redirect and the target userbox. However, discussion of the target userbox should be at WP:MFD, not here. As long as the target remains, I think the redirect should remain so that on the off chance someone is looking for it at the original title (either because they made a typo or because they know where it was before), the redirect should be kept. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 13:40, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If an index page is created, it should be titled at Wikipedia:Requests for review of administrative actions. An index page is not an essay, so we should refrain from using abbreviations such as "admin". NotReallyMoniak (talk) 14:50, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm happy with either title. Thryduulf (talk) 20:00, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

2022 Texas Trailer Truck

Created, not as a redirect, but as a poorly named article. After learning the target article already existed, it was redirected instead of just deleted. I don't think anyone would search on this. Texas instead of San Antonio yes, but without "deaths" this is just too vague. MB 04:11, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Agree that it is an unlikely search combination, and propose that it is moved as a redirect to 2022 Texas trailer deaths which is much more likely for those who do not know or remember the name of the city. Davidships (talk) 22:43, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Just go ahead and create 2022 Texas trailer deaths if you think that would be useful. No need to couple that to this. MB 22:17, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Lambda sond

Although "Lambda" appears in the article, the phrase "Lambda sond" does not, nor is there any sense of what this might mean. BD2412 T 03:53, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Accent is improbable, I can't find it used anywhere else but an article (The Dark Eye: Skilltree Saga) created by the same person who made the redirect, and it has one pageview in the last 30 days. CLYDEFRANKLIN 23:02, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Redirect not mentioned at target. Redirect to Saanich dialect or Squamish language, where it is mentioned, or create a new article for it. SlimyGecko7 (talk) 11:18, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Cell tropism

Created as an unsourced stub of 2 sentences in 2008, this was then promptly redirected. The trouble is, the target is a about a different sense of the word "tropism". The redirect should be deleted to encourage the creation of an article in the same category as Host tropism and Tissue tropism. – Uanfala (talk) 00:30, 3 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

USS Bushnell (AG-2)

The USS Bushnell/Sumner never was assigned hull symbol AG-2, that was assigned to the USS Lebanon. This redirect is not much different than a redirect for 'RMS Titanic (PT-109)'. It conflates two vessels that should not be conflated. This is the same issue as with the RfD for USS Sumner (AG-2) on July 23. Cheers! Tfdavisatsnetnet (talk) 16:32, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
