Administrivia / Circular Redirect

Go To

Redirects Are Free... except this kind.

A circular redirect is created by making a page redirect to itself, or to a page that redirects to itself, or making two pages redirect to each other... you get the gist. Please don't do this. In theory, this would cause an infinite loop and possibly Explosive Overclocking or a Reality-Breaking Paradox. In practice, modern browsers are generally smart enough to catch such nonsense and put the brakes on, but it will still lead the poor user to a browser error page. If you find one, fix them by entering the link with the namespace and title replacing "Namespace" and "Title" in the link to access the editor, as you cannot access the page's "Edit" button directly.


Please see Creating New Redirects for other guidelines.
