WT:AA, WT:AC, WT:AG, WT:AH, WT:AJ, WT:AK, WT:AL, WT:AS. These old redirects to the language About pages used single letters to denote the language name rather than the ISO language code. Most aren't linked to much except for WT:AJ. I'm not sure actually if they should be deleted because some might be used actively for direct access from the browser address bar. I thought I'd list them anyways. --Bequw¢τ 00:06, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
They might be worth keeping, I think it's more trouble to delink them than to leave them as is. I'd like to point your attention to WT:AAGR though, which is plain wrong (see {{agr}}). -- Prince Kassad 16:39, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes that needs to be corrected, along with:
  • WT:ASC - getting in the way of {{sc}} and is a duplicate of WT:ASH
  • WT:ASL - getting in the way of {{sl}}. The page is about all sign languages so it could use the ISO 639-2 "collective" code sgn for this group (making it WT:ASGN, or maybe use the Ameslan code of {{ase}}.
The other WT:* (e.g. WT:ALL) shortcuts are safe as they use unassigned 2-letter language codes. --Bequw¢τ 18:13, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
This proposal makes sense. It was a happy coincidence that "WT:ASL" was a dual mnemonic ("about sign languages" and "American Sign Language", but [[WT:ASGN]] seems like the proper new location for the collected sign languages page. —Rod (A. Smith) 16:26, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Keep the ones that don't hurt (e.g., AA, AC), and reredirect the ones that do (e.g., ASC, ASL). Naturally pointers to the bad redirects must be updated.​—msh210 17:53, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
No need for an RFD, just delete the badly named ones without discussion. I can't imagine anyone making a complaint about a misnamed redirect being deleted. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:12, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
