Usage

This template is primarily used on WikiSpecies guideline and policy pages to show the shortest alias of a given page. For example, WS:A redirects to Wikispecies:About. The point of this template is not to list every single redirect (indeed, that's what Special:Whatlinkshere is for); for any given page, it should list only one or two common and easily-remembered redirects.

Don't use this template on other templates, e.g. to state that the shortcut to Template:VN is in fact {{VN}}. There's no need to state the obvious like that, by default every template uses its own name as a shortcut.
