Template:Synonym taxon category redirect

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This category is located at [[:Category:{{{1}}}]]
Reason: Synonym taxon category redirect is a synonym of [[:Category:|]]
Note: This category should be empty. Any content should be recategorised.

This tag should be used on existing categories that are likely to be used by others, even though the "real" category is elsewhere. Redirected categories should be empty and not categorised themselves. It should not be used on categories that are misspellings and thus unlikely to be used by other people.

Such categories should be tagged as: {{bad name|Category:correct name}}.

Use this template instead of using {{Category redirect}} to redirect a taxon category to its synonyme taxon category.
If there is no exact synonymy (different content), prefer {{Invalid taxon category redirect}}
Be careful, On wikicommons, we don't rename categories when a taxon name changes.
So the destination might not be the more accepted name
