Redirects vs. articlesEdit

Hey, thanks for patrolling pages. I noticed you've tagged some redirects for deletion under the A1 criterion. That doesn't actually work because if it's a redirect you have to use one of the WP:CSD criteria specifically for redirects (or the general ones). My understanding is redirects are cheap and don't need much justification. Thanks again for your work! delldot ∇. 05:39, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Noted. I suppose my reasoning behind it had to do with the notability of the subjects of a redirect pages and how it related to the necessity for them. Will be more cautious in the future. Abovethestorm (talk) 02:16, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

  • 7&6=thirteen, thank you for bringing that to my attention. I made the decision a few months back to step away from the entire situation regarding conversations regarding the peripheral articles that spring up around that set of entries. Abovethestorm (talk) 06:43, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
