Redirects converted into articles should appear in the New Pages Feed indexed by the date of creation and creator of the article, not of the redirect
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently redirects converted into articles are listed in the New Pages Feed with the date of creation and creator of the redirect – usually at the back of the queue. It would be more useful if they were indexed by the date of creation and creator of the article. Additionally, any messages sent through the Page Curation tool should be sent to the creator of the article (the new revision), not to the creator of the original redirect.

Additionally there should be a 'Potential issues' flag that the article was converted from redirect and, for redirects, if the redirect was converted to an article. These flags should also be displayed in the toolbar (T207847)

Not sure why this task was ever closed. It definitely isn't a duplicate of the one suggested but an entirely different issue.

It appears the CommTech team is working on this.
