Introduction

[Moved from Help talk:Template#Creation of Template:Redirect hatnote. -- Larivact (talk) 20:22, 29 September 2018 (UTC)]

Disambiguation pages need Extension:Disambiguator. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 19:19, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

That would be nice but home-made disambiguation pages are still better than ambiguous redirects (or hatnotes). We wouldn't have many disambiguation pages anyway. I'll experimentally convert three of my four hatnotes to disambiguation pages (I will keep the well-used group redirect). The functionality of that extension could also be approximated with yet another Python script. --Larivact (talk) 19:23, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
I created a simple Python script to track disambiguation backlinks. --Larivact (talk) 07:26, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Another thing to be discussed is whether all disambiguation pages should be translated or in which cases they shouldn't. Also, should there be separate category for disambiguation pages in each language or should all translations belong in this category? Extension:Disambiguator has only one "category"/group of disambiguation pages. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:14, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

I'd say they shouldn't be translated because a) they just contain a few links, so non-English speakers should still be able to follow them and then click on the interlanguage link and b) they are not linked anywhere and the only way to find them is through the search. --Larivact (talk) 08:27, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
