This page is a list of abbreviated redirects to articles mainly in the Meta namespace. It's not complete, please add what you find as far as it's no nonsense. See also list of pages in the main namespace starting with WM: and Category:Shortcuts.

Creating shortcuts

This is an example, in practice a shortcut WM:BABEL for Meta:Babel saving two keystrokes would be pointless.

Edit page WM:BABEL like this:

#REDIRECT [[Meta:Babel]] [[Category:Shortcuts]]

Maybe add a sort key to the category, but don't forget that WM: is no real namespace, specifying {{PAGENAME}} is redundant, because it's the default sort order in the main namespace.

For further technical and other considerations compare w:en:WP:SHORT (but the main point is that this link to a shortcut elsewhere works).
