Description Yonatan Horan 2007-05-17 00:09:56 UTC
For example, linking to [[WP:RFA/X]] would automatically forward the user to [[Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/X]] since [[WP:RFA]] is a redirect to [[Wikipedia:Requests for adminship]].

I'm not sure if this is desirable.  Generally it would be, yes, but what if there's content on the pages?  What about talk pages?  Seems like there might be cases where this would be unwanted.
