Hey guys, why do we have a category for user page redirects? I don't really see the value in it. Do other wikis do this? Why not just the redirect? Having any category on a redirect page seems odd to me. --Voidious 14:28, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I found somewhere that every page should have at least one category so I manage to do that one. I don't really think there are any wiki that have any user page redirect, they link directly to there user page. For category on redirect page, we already has CamelCase redirect category! OK, Wikipedia seem to has the category for (some) redirected page, too. I'm sure that there are some of value doing this, at least to found out that how many user that does not have user page redirect ;) I found some of user that don't really have it. it may seem very odd (for me too) but I can't think why we shouldn't? » Nat | Talk » 15:03, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, the main reasons it seems weird to me are: a redirect isn't really a page on its own, it's a different name for another page, so it seems weird for it to have its own category; and also, I can't see why one would ever want to actually look at that category =). I didn't notice the CamelCase redirect category until you mentioned it, but that seems strange to me, also. It's no big deal, so let's leave it for now. If anyone can show me how it's useful in any way, I'm happy to just leave it alone. --Voidious 15:17, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
That why all the category contain redirect page have 'redirect' in its name. If you look at wikipedia, you will found a number of category of redirect page. But I think leave it alone is the best solution. » Nat | Talk » 15:46, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
