Create Special:CA as a redirect to Special:CentralAuth
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Special:CentralAuth is a regularly used special page, mostly by users who work in counter-vandalism area. Typing whole Special:CentralAuth or Special:Centralauth everytime is annoying.

There are user scripts to quickly open CentralAuth but they work only in certain conditions. This problem can also be solved by using browser bookmarks but personally I prefer to just type link manually as it's more quicker when on a smartphone. And with my non-technical eyes, I don't see any reason why there shouldn't be a shortcut.

Therefore I'm requesting/proposing to create Special:CA as a global alias/shortcut/redirect for Special:CentralAuth. Like there is Special:Stats for Special:Statistics.

Thanks!
