We continue to develop resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. See COVID-19 initiatives on Appropedia for more information.
Do we want more aliases, besides "A:"?
Each alias is just a single line in Appropedia's LocalSettings file - e.g. so far we have:
I don't see any downside to adding H:, P: and U:, but...
- We don't want aliases for the Category namespace - redirects aren't appropriate in the Category namespace, so we can't add shortcuts there.
- We probably want a policy for shortcuts in the user namespace. E.g. if you want a shortcut there, (A) you need to register the account that you use as a shortcut (to avoid having Foo as a shorcut, then a new user registering as User:Foo), and (B) don't create a bunch of them.
