Description Church of emacs 2008-01-01 16:41:55 UTC
Hi. I proposed[1] 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[2]. 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,

[[User:Church of emacs]]

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.
Comment 2 Church of emacs 2008-01-01 20:15:57 UTC
Thank you.

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.
