I'm not sure the way you are addressing double redirects is quite right though. On the English Wiktionary, we tend to want redirects to point only to the properly capitalized entry...that is, a capitalized inflected form of a word should redirect to the lower case inflection with the same spelling. That entry (in turn) should describe the details about that form of the word (e.g. Past participle of whatever) and list translations, pronunciations etc. for that form.
I periodically run off line tools that list erroneous redirects. As far as I know, only idioms are exempt from the rule of redirecting only to correct capitalization.
Hi! I see you've created that template, and I'm curious; what's the benefit to using a template to add references rather than <references/> directly? It seems unnecessary, and it breaks/circumvents the ref-no-refs abuse filter tag... - -sche (discuss) 06:49, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks, I will endeavour to follow the appropriate guidelines, but must perforce rely on the regulars here. Rich Farmbrough, 18:33, 8 September 2012 (UTC).
