image for redirects should be without text and orientened according to content language
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: gangleri



[[commons:Image:Redirect arrow.png]] should be changed alternatively to
[[commons:Image:Redirect arrow without text.png]] or
[[commons:Image:Redirect arrow rtl without text.png]]
depending if the content language is LTR or RTL.

A special Mediawiki text at the top of the page should indicate that this is a

Normaly images should *not* contain text.
The indication "Redirect" might be well known to wikipedia users but a text in
the content language would be more efficient. The size of the text could be
similar to the one in [[Special:Contributions/foo]] for "For Foo (Talk)".
