I'm wondering if Pywikipedia messages like the one linked above("Bot: Redirect to a deleted or non-existent page") should be explicitely linking to Wikipedia pages, since Pywikipedia also has many users outside of Wikimedia. AFAIK, if one wants their custom reason, there is a --reason param to use.
May be: [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Redirect|Redirect]]→Redirect?
- And why [[WP:CSD#G8|G8]]→G8 does not work?
That's not the problem. Thing is that the Pywikipedia bot is also quite in use outside Wikipedia, and thus pages like Wikipedia:Redirect or Wikipedia:CSD don't exist there. Links to such pages should be avoided in the message.
