I've changed [[New Zealand]] into a very basic soft redirect, for demonstration purposes. It is rough in appearance, but it can be polished with a template, and perhaps additional (very brief) notes to explain its reference/significance, not unlike those at the top of disambiguation pages (not counting [[Template:disambig]] itself). In addition, soft redirects can be categorized as such, perhaps in [[:Category:Soft redirects]].

Basically, the rule of thumb I have in mind is, if (beyond those brief notes) an article on Turtlepedia cannot usefully convey more information than its Wikipedia counterpart, it can be a soft redirect. Whatever ''is'' notable should be noted, and if extensive enough, the article can cease just being a soft redirect and be an article of whatever appropriate length, and ''still'' link to the Wikipedia as an external link.

The distinction between local article and soft redirect doesn't have to be rigidly one or the other, but can allow some existence inbetween.

I've changed New Zealand into a very basic soft redirect, for demonstration purposes. It is rough in appearance, but it can be polished with a template, and perhaps additional (very brief) notes to explain its reference/significance, not unlike those at the top of disambiguation pages (not counting Template:disambig itself). In addition, soft redirects can be categorized as such, perhaps in Category:Soft redirects.

Basically, the rule of thumb I have in mind is, if (beyond those brief notes) an article on Turtlepedia cannot usefully convey more information than its Wikipedia counterpart, it can be a soft redirect. Whatever is notable should be noted, and if extensive enough, the article can cease just being a soft redirect and be an article of whatever appropriate length, and still link to the Wikipedia article as an external link. The distinction between local article and soft redirect doesn't have to be rigidly one or the other, but can allow some existence inbetween.
