Special:Nuke - redirects in the list of pages should have &redirect=no
Open, Needs TriagePublicFeature


Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):

  • At Special:Nuke, after you type the criteria and press enter, it gives you a list of pages. I propose that pages that are redirects not redirect when you click on them. This is accomplished by adding &redirect=no to the URL.

Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution):

Benefits (why should this be implemented?):

  • When opening all these pages in new tabs, it is useful to see that the editor created a redirect rather than an article. An article might be really developed and therefore exempt from WP:G5 on English Wikipedia, wasting time until the admin realizes that the sockpuppet didn't create the developed article, but rather a redirect.
