United States presidential election articlesEdit

Hi, thanks for writing these articles! Just to warn you in case you didn't know, while I understand that the new format of articles of this type is "YYYY United States presidential election in [state]", a lot of links were set up in the past on the assumption that an article would be created in future in the old format. So without a redirect page, those links will stay red even though there's an article on the topic. I've been setting up relevant redirects but just warning you in case I've missed any!

@Blythwood: If you're referring to the links in the navboxes, normally I just change them as I create them, though I may miss a few. I'll pay close attention to change those, or I can just create the "United States presidential election in [state], YYYY" redirects at the same time I create the properly named articles if that would work better.

Sure. I wondered about that but I thought it was quickest to create redirects because there seem to be quite a lot of these redlinks. For instance for the Oregon 1936 article there's four links to the old-format article title, one from quite an obscure-looking article that might easily get missed (List of third party performances in United States presidential elections). And of course someone who doesn't know or forgot about the new format could easily create another link to an old-format title at some point in future. Blythwood (talk) 05:21, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
@Blythwood: I think it's easiest for me to create the old-style redirects at the same time that I create the new-style pages. That way, the links in the massive state-by-state results tables (1936 United States presidential election#Results by state, for example) won't stay red; otherwise they'd have to be changed by hand and that would take way too much time and effort to do.

@Blythwood: Though I will also thank you for bringing this to my attention, and for all the redirects you've already made - I'm sure it's rather tedious work that's not extremely fun to do, so thank you for being the one to do it. PCN02WPS (talk | contribs) 05:42, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
No worries. Incidentally, I was just looking at related pages-if/when you get onto 1932, someone's categorised Wikimedia Commons images on that election by state, so there's a lot of categories e.g. here and here that could be linked to articles. Blythwood (talk) 06:28, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
