Author: p_simoons

Description:
[[Wikipedia:Censorship]] redirects to [[m:Censorship]].

However, when going to Wikipedia:Censorship, I end up at a page named
"m:Censorship" that contains the encyclopedia article "Censorship" from
articlespace, and when clicking on the edit link I end up editing the
corresponding page on meta.

Hallo!

See
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Censorship&action=history
and ask the contributors why they made the redirect there.

Notes:
As far as I know meta is the only interwiki prefix which
a) is allowed as a second chained interwiki prefix
see / find [[hi:m:user:Gangleri]] at [[wiktionary:yi:user:Gangleri]]
b) can be used as a redirect

If you do not agree with this you may open a new bug report.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Tracking this down, probably a bug in the new parser cache use for redirects.

Actually a somewhat older change it looks like. Fixed; now shows the ugly
redirect marker with a link to the proper page.
