I assume this bug is a duplicate. I believe an initial compromise was to remove the "edit" tab (leaving only "edit source") on redirects. But the behavior here still is pretty wonky and will likely remain wonky until someone writes a redirect VisualEditor module/plugin, I think?

Not a duplicate of bug 50877; this is about being able to edit page redirects, which is an enhancement we want to do shortly, blocked by bug 47328.

I figured out that the redirect was the reason why I could not see VE tab on my userpage at vec.wiki, but I also suggest that this should probably be more visible. Redirects are also widely used on user pages, and I assume that there will be people who might consider writing a proper user page with VE at some point and will be puzzled that they can't find its tab there. Just my 2c :)

(In reply to comment #3)
Indeed, I first noticed this bug in a user page which was a redirect.
