Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from duplicated article}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Apply this rcat to a redirected page name that had the same or very similar subject matter as another article or other project page. This must be done in order to preserve the edit-history attributions of the redirect after the content was merged into the target page.
  • Since these redirects are former articles, they have revision histories of prior edits; however, they should not be history merged with their targets. This is because in most cases they were originally created in good faith as separate distinct articles, without the creator having knowledge of the pre-existence of another article on exactly the same subject. This situation is different from a cut-and-paste move where a history merge would be required.
  • Category:Redirects from duplicated articles is a subcategory of Category:Redirects from merges, so {{R from merge}} should not be used with this rcat.
