Description M. Creidieki Crouch 2004-11-16 03:05:30 UTC
If a user has redirects on their watchlist, the page "Special:Watchlist" should
provide links specifically to those redirect pages, i.e., with "redirect=no"
appended.  Currently, clicking on the name of the redirect will take you to the
redirected article, which is confusing if you're trying to prune your watchlist.
Comment 1 Shane King 2004-11-24 12:03:41 UTC
This looks rather trivial to do, but the code that produces the links is shared
with recent changes and recent changes linked. The question is if we make the no
redirect change for this, should we do the same for those?

I think the answer to that is yes.
Comment 3 Michael Keppler 2005-06-10 19:42:58 UTC
Most people use the watchlist links to navigate to the page for reading it
(after it has changed). So having the redirection work is _expected_ behavior.

Closing as WONTFIX.

Reopening.  Presumably, the redirect is listed because that is the page that
changed.  Either behaviour allows either view with at most one extra click, but
using "redirect=no" makes the change more obvious.

please compare with
bug 2318: Special:Allpages should mark redirects distinctly
