Description Melancholie 2008-05-31 02:43:36 UTC
Prefix "Wikipedia:" leads to enwiki if project namespace is diffenent from "Wikipedia".
This can be extremely confusing!
Take the following link:

Although with [[eo:Project:Where_will_I_be_now?]] there is a working (English) possibility, it should behave the same with "Wikipedia:". Now you are redirected magically, without wanting this.
Maybe just disable "Wikipedia:" for those Wikipedias with different project namespace names.

Oh, and don't forget Wiktionary & Co. ;-) ;-)
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-16 23:44:41 UTC
This is expected behaviour. The default namespace name is Project:, which can always be used. The interwiki prefix 'wikipedia' leads to I suggest WONTFIX.
