Hi. I proposed to activate an Alias in the German Wikipedia for easy shortcuts.
WP:Foobar should lead to the page Wikipedia:Foobar (even if there is no page WP:Foobar with a redirect)
This already works in the English Wikipedia, however Raymond told me that it had to be activated in each project first. In a mini-RFC, 15 users supported this idea and no one objected. There are no articles that begin with WP:, which could have been affected.
Therefor I request that this feature is activated in the German Wikipedia as well :-)
Happy New Year,

Contrary to what you said, there were pages in the WP: range. They have been moved to a new location. Some of them got --DUP or ----DUP suffixes. Those need to be cleaned up manually.
Small misunderstanding: What I meant was, that there are no ''articles'' that begin with WP:. Of course there are ''normal pages'' that redirect to the Wikipedia namespace.
I will request speedy-delete for all DUPs.
