...are categorized differently from their target pages for a reason, in that we don't want to clutter up the main categories with every conceivable alternate term or inflate the numbers of topics we do have. For example, the redirects to cruising speed should be in the measurements redirects category. If you're not comfortable with how redirects are handled, it would be better to not categorize those redirects at all than what you are currently doing, since it will take less work in the long run to fix that way. - Archduk3 15:01, July 30, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I wasn't aware of redirect categories. Thank you for bringing that to my attention - BradTheAmerican (talk) 15:23, July 30, 2020 (UTC)

It's cool, the system is still fairly new, and I know a lot of wikis don't bother with this. It's really only for AKA redirects too, as subtopics and the like are still categorized in the main categories, but the safe maximum cruising speed is still just the cruising speed, even if the writers wanted to paid by the word that day. - Archduk3 16:03, July 30, 2020 (UTC)


We use present tense for concepts that are universal and unchanging, i.e. chemistry (not carbon *was* an element...), physics (not gravity *was*... or light *was*...), etc. If in doubt, ask. Thanks! -- Renegade54 (talk) 22:31, July 30, 2020 (UTC)
