           Summary: Suggestion: Wikipedia, streamlining page moves over
                    redirects, which is becoming more difficult for most
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified

                OS: All

Most wikipedia users can move a page over a "simple" redirect, defined as one
that has had only one edit. That situation is becoming rare as templates are
added, double redirects are "fixed".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wanted to move a page over a redirect but couldn't because User:AvicBot had
fixed a double redirect, which brought the total number of edits on that
redirect up to 2.
2. Wasted everybody's time getting that fixed and went about it the wrong way,
which wasted more people's time.

Expected Results:  
The discussion at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical) proposes changing criteria
for "simple redirects".

Reproducible: Always
