Wikipedia:Requested moves

Requested moves is a process for requesting the retitling (moving) of an article, template, or project page on Wikipedia. (For retitling files, categories and other items, see When not to use this page.) Please read the article titling policy and the guideline regarding primary topics before moving a page or requesting a page move.

Any autoconfirmed user can use the Move function to perform most moves (see Help:How to move a page). If you have no reason to expect a dispute concerning a move, be bold and move the page. However, it may not always be possible or desirable to do this:

  • Technical reasons may prevent a move: a page may already exist at the target title and require deletion, or the page may be protected from moves. See: § Requesting technical moves.
  • Requests to revert recent, undiscussed, controversial moves may be made at WP:RM/TR. If the new name has not become the stable title, the undiscussed move will be reverted. If the new name has become the stable title, a requested move will be needed to determine the article's proper location.
  • A title may be disputed, and discussion may be necessary to reach consensus: see § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves. The requested moves process is not mandatory, and sometimes an informal discussion at the article's talk page can help reach consensus.
  • Unregistered users and new (not yet autoconfirmed) users are unable to move pages.

Requests are generally processed after seven days. If consensus is reached at or after this time, a reviewer will enact the request. If not, the request may be re-listed to allow more time for consensus to develop, or the discussion closed as "no consensus". See Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions for more details on the process.

Wikipedia:Move review can be used to contest the outcome of a move request as long as all steps are followed. If a discussion on the closer's talk page does not resolve an issue, then a move review will evaluate the close of the move discussion to determine whether or not the contested close was reasonable and consistent with the spirit and intent of common practice, policies, and guidelines.

When not to use this page

Separate processes exist for moving certain types of pages, and for changes other than page moves:

Undiscussed moves

Autoconfirmed editors may move a page without discussion if all of the following apply:

  • No article exists at the new target title;
  • There has been no discussion (especially no recent discussion) about the title of the page that expressed any objection to a new title; and
  • It seems unlikely that anyone would reasonably disagree with the move.

If you disagree with such a move, and the new title has not been in place for a long time, you may revert the move. If you cannot revert the move for technical reasons, then you may request a technical move.

Move wars are disruptive, so if you make a bold move and it is reverted, do not make the move again. Instead, follow the procedures laid out in § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves.

Requesting technical moves

If you are unable to complete a move for technical reasons, you can request technical help below. This is the correct page if you tried to move a page, and you got an error message saying something like "You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reasons:".

  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code filling in pages and reason:
    {{subst:RMassist| current page title | new page title | reason = reason for move}}
    This will automatically insert a bullet and include your signature. Please do not edit the article's talk page.
  • If you object to a proposal listed in the uncontroversial technical requests section, please move the request to the Contested technical requests section, append a note on the request elaborating on why, and sign with ~~~~.
  • If your technical request is contested, or if a contested request is left untouched without reply, create a requested move on the article talk and remove the request from the section here. The fastest and easiest way is to click the "discuss" button at the request, save the talk page, and remove the entry on this page.

Technical requests

Uncontroversial technical requests

Contested technical requests

Requests to revert undiscussed moves

Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves

The discussion process is used for potentially controversial moves. A move is potentially controversial if either of the following applies:

  • there has been any past debate about the best title for the page;
  • someone could reasonably disagree with the move.

Use this process if there is any reason to believe a move would be contested. In particular, use this process before moving any existing page with incoming links to create a disambiguation page at that title. For technical move requests, such as to correct obvious typographical errors, see Requesting technical moves. The technical moves procedure can also be used for uncontroversial moves when the requested title is occupied by an existing article.

Do not create a new move request when one is already open on the same talk page. Instead, consider contributing to the open discussion if you would like to propose another alternative. Multiple closed move requests may be on the same page, but each should have a unique section heading.

Do not create a move request to rename one or more redirects. Redirects cannot be used as current titles in requested moves.

Requesting a single page move

To request a single page move, edit at the bottom of the talk page of the article you want moved, without adding a new header, inserting this code:

{{subst:requested move|NewName|reason=Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. Do not sign this.}}

Replace NewName with the requested new name of the page (or with a question mark, if you want more than one possible new name to be considered). The template will automatically create the heading "Requested move 28 March 2020" and sign the post for you.

There is no need to edit the article in question. Once the above code is added to the Talk page, a bot will automatically add the following notification at the top of the article:

Note: Unlike other request processes on Wikipedia, such as Requests for comment, nominations need not be neutral. Make your point as best you can; use evidence (such as Google Ngrams and pageview statistics) and refer to applicable policies and guidelines, especially our article titling policy and the guideline on disambiguation and primary topics.

WikiProjects may subscribe to Article alerts to receive RM notifications. For example, Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Article alerts/Requested moves is transcluded to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography. RMCD bot notifies many of the other Wikiprojects listed on the talk page of the article to be moved to invite project members to participate in the RM discussion. Requesters should feel free to notify any other Wikiproject or noticeboard that might be interested in the move request, as long as this notification is neutral.

Single page move on a different talk page

Occasionally, a move request must be made on a talk page other than the talk page of the page to be moved. For example, a request to rename Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources to Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Reviewing and templates would need to take place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation because the talk page of the project page to be moved, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources, is a redirect to that centralized discussion page. In this type of case, the requested move should be made using the following code:

{{subst:requested move|reason=(the reason for the page move goes here).|current1=(present title of page to be renamed)|new1=(proposed title of page)}}

Note that the |1= unnamed parameter is not used, and that the |current1= and |new1= parameters are used similar to multiple page moves described below.

Requesting multiple page moves

A single template may be used to request multiple related moves. On one of the talk pages of the affected articles, create a request and format it as below. A sample request for three page moves is shown here (for two page moves, omit the lines for current3 and new3). For four page moves, add lines for current4 and new4, and so on. There is no technical limit on the number of multiple move requests, but before requesting very large multi-moves, consider whether a naming convention should be changed first. Discuss that change on the talk page for the naming convention, e.g., Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (sportspeople).

To request a multiple page move, edit at the bottom of the talk page of the article you chose for your request, without adding a new header, inserting this code:

{{subst:requested move
| new1 = New title for page 1 with the talk page hosting this discussion
| current2 = Current title of page 2
| new2 = New title for page 2
| current3 = Current title of page 3
| new3 = New title for page 3
| reason = Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. Do not sign this.}}

For example, to propose moving the articles Wikipedia and Wiki, put this template on Talk:Wikipedia, and replace current2 with Wiki. The discussion for all affected articles is held on the talk page of the article at page 1 (Talk:Wikipedia). Do not sign a request with ~~~~ as the template does this automatically. Do not skip pairs of numbers.

RMCD bot automatically places a notice section on the talk page of the additional pages that are included in your request, advising that the move discussion is in progress, where it is, and that all discussion for all pages included in the request should take place at that one location.

Occasionally the discussions for significant multi-move requests may be hosted on WikiProject talk pages or other pages in Project namespace. For multi-move discussions hosted on a page which is not itself proposed to be moved, specify |current1=Current title of page 1 for the first page to move.

Request all associated moves explicitly

Please list every move that you wish to have made in your request. For example, if you wish to move Cricket (disambiguation) to Cricket because you do not believe the sport is the primary topic for the search term "Cricket", then you actually want to move two pages, both Cricket (disambiguation) and Cricket. Thus you must list proposed titles for each page affected by your request. For example, you might propose:

If a new title is not proposed for the sport, it is more difficult to achieve consensus for a new title for that article. A move request that does not show what to do with the material at its proposed target, such as:

is incomplete. As a malformed move request, it may be subject to early closure on procedural grounds.

Commenting on a requested move

All editors are welcome to contribute to the discussion regarding a requested page move. There are a number of standards that Wikipedians should practice in such discussions:

  • When editors recommend a course of action, they write Support or Oppose in bold text, which is done by surrounding the word with three single quotes on each side, e.g. '''Support'''.
  • Comments or recommendations are added on a new bulleted line (that is, starting with *) and signed by adding ~~~~ to the end. Responses to another editor are threaded and indented using multiple bullets.
  • The article itself should be reviewed before any recommendation is made; do not base recommendations solely on the information supplied by other editors. It may also help to look at the article's edit history. However, please read the earlier comments and recommendations, as well as prior move requests. They may contain relevant arguments and useful information.
  • Vested interests in the article should be disclosed per Wikipedia:Conflict of interest#How to disclose a COI.

When participating, please consider the following:

  • Editors should make themselves familiar with the article titling policy at Wikipedia:Article titles.
  • Other important guidelines that set forth community norms for article titles include Wikipedia:Disambiguation, specific naming conventions, and the manual of style.
  • The debate is not a vote; please do not make recommendations that are not sustained by arguments.
  • Explain how the proposed article title meets or contravenes policy and guidelines rather than merely stating that it does so.
  • Nomination already implies that the nominator supports the name change, and nominators should refrain from repeating this recommendation on a separate bulleted line.[a]
  • Do not make conflicting recommendations. If you change your mind, use strike-through to retract your previous statement by enclosing it between <s> and </s> after the bullets, and de-bold the struck words, as in "• Support Oppose".

Please remember that reasonable editors will sometimes disagree, but that arguments based in policy, guidelines, and evidence have more weight than unsupported statements. When an editor offers an argument that does not explain how the move request is consistent with policies and guidelines, a reminder to engage in constructive, on-topic discussion may be useful. On the other hand, a pattern of responding to requests with groundless opinion, proof by assertion, and ignoring content guidelines may become disruptive. If a pattern of disruptive behavior persists after efforts are made to correct the situation through dialogue, please consider using a dispute resolution process.

Closing a requested move

Any uninvolved editor in good standing may close a move request. Please read the closing instructions for information on how to close a move request. The Simple guide to closing RM discussions details how to actually close a requested move discussion.

Relisting a requested move

Relisting a discussion moves the request out of the backlog up to the current day in order to encourage further input. The decision to relist a discussion is best left to uninvolved experienced editors upon considering, but declining, to close the discussion. In general, discussions should not be relisted more than once before properly closing.[b] Users relisting a debate which has already been relisted, or relisting a debate with a substantial discussion, should write a short explanation on why they did not consider the debate sufficient to close. While there is no consensus forbidding participation in a requested move discussion after relisting it, many editors consider it an inadvisable form of supervote. If you want to relist a discussion and then participate in it, be prepared to explain why you think it was appropriate.

Relisting can be done using {{subst:relisting}}, which automatically includes the relister's signature, and which must be placed at the very end of the initial request after the move requester's signature (and subsequent relisters' signatures). When a discussion has been relisted a bot partially underlines the "Discuss" link in the lists of debates: (Discuss).

When a relisted discussion reaches a resolution, it may be closed at any time according to the closing instructions; there is no required length of time to wait before closing a relisted discussion.

If discussion has become stale, or it seems that discussion would benefit from more input of editors versed in the subject area, consider more widely publicizing the discussion, such as by notifying WikiProjects of the discussion using the template {{RM notification}} or {{Mdn}}. Banners placed at the top of the talk page hosting the move request can often be used to identify WikiProjects suitable for notification.


  1. ^ A nominator making a procedural nomination with which they may not agree is free to add a bulleted line explaining their actual position. Additional detail, such as sources, may also be provided in an additional bullet point if its inclusion in the nomination statement would make the statement unwieldy. Please remember that the entire nomination statement is transcluded into the list on this page.
  2. ^ Despite this, discussions are occasionally relisted more than once.

March 28, 2020

  • (Discuss)Ptolemy (general) → Polemaios – If, as the lead paragraph suggests, "Most modern historians call him Polemaios to distinguish him from the more famous Ptolemy", then perhaps we should too. The article consistently uses Polemaios rather than Ptolemy. Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 14:38, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Black ruffCentrolophus – This species/genus has multiple vernacular names that are in common use. Worse, the "official" name recognized by FAO is "rudderfish", while AFS uses "black ruff" (see FishBase). Among the common reliable sources that we use, FishBase uses "rudderfish" while IUCN gives that name first but also recognizes "black ruff" and "blackfish". This seems to be a classic case of widespread species with different naming traditions in different parts of its range, and thus a case where the scientific name should be used. As a monotypic genus, the article shoud be under the genus name. Micromesistius (talk) 10:27, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Extra Human Being → Extra Humans – "Extra Human Being" seems to have been made up by Wikipedia editors. This movie is known as "Extra Humans" and "The Extra Mortals" instead on movie databases Mamamiamario (talk) 18:56, 20 March 2020 (UTC)Relisted. – Ammarpad (talk) 07:49, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Template:2019–20 coronavirus pandemic data/Singapore medical cases → List of COVID-19 cases in Singapore – The list of cases in the template is getting longer and it is causing problems for visual editing due to its huge file size (i.e. takes a long time to finalize and then does not load). I propose moving the contents of the template into a list article on mainspace to prevent the table from being accidentally inserted into an article, to make editing on other articles much easier, and to preserve the editing history of the contents. However, I do foresee some complications from doing this as it is a cross-namespace move and I don't have the tools to make the move clean (i.e. not leave a redirect in template-space). In addition, I'm not sure if there is a policy regarding cross-namespace moving and the naming of COVID-19 articles, so I'm looking for consensus on how to proceed with the move and the naming of the target. (This might also be applicable to other countries like Thailand which also have multiple sources reporting on the details of the individual COVID-19 cases.) -- AquaDTRS (talk) 07:16, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Mauna ʻAla → Royal Mausoleum (Mauna ʻAla) – Suggestion to retain word "Royal Mausoleum" and "Mauna ʻAla" in similar vein to Royal Mausoleum (Norway). Mauna ʻAla or Maunaala was originally the name for the ground in the Nuʻuanu that the Royal Mausoleum was build upon not the mausoleum itself. Here is an 1856 mention of Maunaala showing that it predated the construction of the Mausoleum. It was probably the name of a traditional Hawaiian land division maybe an ʻili. The Royal Mausoleum's name was Ka ilina o nā aliʻi in Hawaii [1] and was written in official reports of the monarchy as Ilina Alii. Many 19th-century Hawaiian newspapers distinguishes the land and the mausoleum that it sat on. See [] for translation of contemporary Hawaiian language articles. Many sources called it the Royal Mausoleum at Mauna ʻAla [2] as well. KAVEBEAR (talk) 04:02, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Mitcham, LondonMitcham – Mitcham already redirects here and there's a separate disambiguation page, so I see no point why this is called "Mitcham, London" instead of just "Mitcham". CastleCapt (talk) 18:17, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Ring of periods → Period (integral) – The article is mostly about individual periods, not the set of periods as a whole, though I'm not sure which disambiguator is best. Consistency with articles on other number systems. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 17:26, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)YakutiaSakha – Sakha is the general shortform name of its official name, the Sakha Republic. Sakha is the name of the place in the Sakha language, which is spoken by a majority of not just the Sakhalar but also the other minority peoples of the region; these peoples make up a majority of the republic's population, and the percentage will have increased with the new upcoming census this year. The official renaming of the region from "Yakutia" to "Sakha" was an intentional and political move by the government to highlight its autonomy, with the addition of "Yakutia" in parentheses being a kind of political compromise.[1] Modern scholarly works dealing with the Sakhalar such as Siberian Village by Bella Jordan and Terry Bychkov-Jordan and Words like Birds by Jenanne Ferguson also call the place Sakha. There are constantly more searches on Google for "Sakha" rather than "Yakutia."[2] Sakha yields nearly 7 million results on Google,[3] whereas Yakutia yields 5 million.[4] Google Ngram shows that "Sakha" has more than twice the usage of "Yakutia" in books, with "Sakha" being the preferred term since shortly after the republic's renaming to the indigenous "Sakha."[5] JSTOR has 2500 results for "Sakha,"[6] but only 1600 results for "Yakutia."[7] Modern visits by the Sakhalar in places also have them being called "Sakha," such as when delegations from Sakha visited Fort Ross in California.[8]

  • (Discuss)European migrant crisis → Migration to Europe since 2014 – "Crisis" is an evaluative, judging term for a certain situation. However, the article as it is now does not give a clear definition of which situation is addressed here as "crisis". The lead sentence until today said: 'The crisis was a period with high numbers (…)', but did not say which period that was. Also, that statement in that opening sentence was apparently not based on any ref source, so it seemed an invention of a Wikipedia contributor – which ought not be the basis of a Wiki article. Moreover, it seems not right to say that any period of time in itself can be a crisis. 'Crisis' means a difficult or problematic situation, it indeed takes place at a moment or in a period of time, but it is not that period of time itself. Apart from that unclearness of that alluded 'period in time', the lead sentence also didn't say what the suggested difficult or problematic situation ('crisis') was, any further than the vague indication "high numbers (…)" which is not a description but an evaluation (judgement). Nevertheless, if we simply look at the contents of the article, that does not seem very obscure or unclear: the article clearly describes migration to Europe since 2014 and reactions on that. So let's just give it the short and clear name: 'Migration to Europe since 2014'. If we then find sources – not just Wiki editors, but sources – that identify certain difficult situations in that period concerning migration which they label as "crisis", surely we'll be able to find ways to present such judgements in the article. Corriebertus (talk) 11:36, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Shinzo AbeAbe Shinzo – I would like to revisit the requested move from 21 May 2019. It appears that the consensus was to wait until (if and) when reliable sources start referring to him as Abe Shinzo. I enter the following into the record as evidence reliable sources have started using Abe Shinzo: *Google News: 20 pages of results since 2 January 2020 for "shinzo abe" [3]; 23 pages for "abe shinzo" [4] *Google: 125 displayed results since 2 January 2020 for "shinzo abe" -wikipedia [5]; 170 for "abe shinzo" -wikipedia [6] *Google Scholar: 189 results since 2020 for "shinzo abe" [7]; 42 results for "abe shinzo" [8] (The change went into effect 1 January 2020 [9]. It is very likely that a significant portion of articles published in 2020 were written before 1 January 2020.) It seems to me that there is a slight majority in reliable sources using Abe Shinzo. Combined with this being the subject's preferred name[10], I believe Abe Shinzo is the preferable title. userdude 08:31, 2 March 2020 (UTC) Relisting. Sawol (talk) 08:39, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Fallschirmjäger (World War II)Fallschirmjäger – Current name is misleading, as the force existed in Nazi Germany prior to the war. Clear primary topic for this term in English, as the other German paratrooper units listed in Fallschirmjäger (disambiguation) are not commonly referred to as "Fallschirmjäger" in English. First twenty results in Google books are all for the Nazi Fallschirmjäger. German paratroopers from all eras are not eligible for a broad concept article, in my opinion, because of the lack of state continuity between Nazi Geramany and East/West Germany, but if it did have an article "Airborne units of Germany" or another English name would probably be the best name for it. buidhe 01:41, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Joseph Maldonado-PassageJoe Exotic – Joe Exotic is the subject's WP:COMMONNAME. Also, per WP:NATURALNESS, an article's title should be one that readers are likely to look or search for. A Google search for "joe exotic" returns 6,000,000 results. A search for "maldonado-passage" returns under 12,000. Even searching for "joe maldonado" returns less than 35,000 results. While the birth or legal name is preferred in most cases, the name most commonly used by sources should be used. Titling the article "Joe Exotic" promotes recognizability: readers who are familiar with this subject are more likely to know the subject's common name rather than his legal name.

  • (Discuss)Ron Brown (U.S. politician)Ron Brown – After searching around for a bit and researching the subject of this article, it truly looks as though this subject is the primary topic for the phrase "Ron Brown". For one, this subject has a consistently high amount of page views versus other "Ron Brown" topics, even though the subject passed away almost 24 years ago. In addition, the subject has an apparently notable award created in their honor, the Ron Brown Award. To me, it looks like the combination of lasting notability after their death, plus notable subtopic which have been created pertaining to the subject of this article which are notable themselves, puts this article as the primary topic for "Ron Brown". Steel1943 (talk) 21:15, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Jeryn HogarthJeri Hogarth – Per consensus at the 2016 AFD, and the status quo of the article even four years later, the comic book character is not notable, and the gender-swapped and kinda-renamed character from the Netflix show is the real focus of this article; the lead should therefore be rewritten and the comics stuff put into a special "Background" section, but of course the first step is to change the article title. However, I'm not entirely confident that the 2016 consensus is still valid, and this may just be a case of laziness in failing to update the article, so I'm opening a new RM.

  • (Discuss)Harrow, LondonHarrow – Harrow is very well recognised as the town. There's no need for a disambiguation page, and it is by far the most notable place bearing this name (compared to the other places in the disambiguation). This article's lead also already mentions the Harrow School and Borough. CastleCapt (talk) 02:57, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Amalasuntha → Either Amalasuintha or Amalasuentha – Amalasuintha is a scholarly spelling, found in Amory's People and Identity in Ostrogothic Italy which cites Jones's Prosopography of the Late Roman Empire, and in Barnish's translation of Casiodorus's Variae. It may be the most etymological form. Amalasuentha is another scholarly spelling, found in Heather's The Goths, page 233, and analogous to a scholarly spelling for her daughter Matasuentha. Or Matasuintha. Note that Amalasuntha appears in Jones's Late Roman Empire, pages 274-275, so the current title has some scholarly usage, but apparently not as much. (talk) 23:36, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Matasuntha → Either Matasuintha or Matasuentha – Matasuintha is analogous to a scholarly spelling of Amalasuintha, found in Amory's People and Identity in Ostrogothic Italy which cites Jones's Prosopography of the Late Roman Empire, and in Barnish's translation of Casiodorus's Variae. It may be the most etymological form. Matasuentha is a scholarly spelling, also found in Amory's, and in Barnish's, and matches a scholarly spelling of Amalasuentha, in Peter Heather's The Goths, page 233. It is probably more etymological than the current Matasuntha. Note that Amalasuntha appears in Jones's Late Roman Empire, pages 274-275, so Matasuntha is at least analogous to a form with some scholarly usage. In fiction, we also find Mathaswentha and apparently Mataswintha. (talk) 23:27, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)2020 Copa América2021 Copa AméricaCONMEBOL, the tournament organizer is now refering to the tournament as 2021 Copa América or Copa América 2021. They also updated the logo to clearly display "2021" on the official website.[11] Unlike other delayed sports events that may retain their 2020 branding, it is clear at this point that the next Copa America will be branded as 2021.

  • (Discuss)Almacenes TíaTía – I have no idea why this is called "Almacenes Tía". In Spanish, "almacenes" just means "stores", and does not seem to form part of either the official name or common name of this company. In Spanish Wikipedia, it's there as a disambiguating phrase ("es:tía" means "aunt"), but French Wikipédia also calls it this, and redirects fr:tía to it. Tía already redirects to it, so per WP:CONCISE I think we should move it over. (talk) 01:33, 6 March 2020 (UTC) Relisting. Steel1943 (talk) 18:01, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

If further disambiguation is needed, because there is more than one sculpture of the same person with an article, then disambiguation by location rather than the sculptor is usually better." Since there are other statues of Lincoln in Washington, D.C., we must use a more specific location.

  • (Discuss)Cat lover cultureCat culture – I think this article still suffers from some of the issues raised in last year's AfD. We might start with the title. Per WP:NDESC, we're allowed to make up descriptive titles, but this one is barely attested outside Wikipedia and its mirrors, so why not go with the more concise version that's actually used in the body of the article, and at least some of its references? We might also consider usurping Cat fancy, which currently redirects to Animal fancy. Restructing this article thus could help address some of those issues. "Cat culture" might draw the objection that it implies animal culture in the context of cats, but there doesn't seem to be much on that, and the phrase already redirects here. --BDD (talk) 16:00, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)FreebaseFreebase (database) – The chemical term has the primary, long term significance of this term, the small differences are not sufficient to differentiate between these articles because the space-less chemical term is extremely common. Indeed the chemical article was originally placed here under "Freebase", then moved to Freebase (chemistry), then Free base after five space-less years. "Freebase" is the headword listed in dictionaries [13][14] (nothing with spaces), referring to cocaine freebasing. Freebase cocaine is called "freebase" by itself [15][16][17][18][19].

  • (Discuss)Communist rebellion in the Philippines → CPP–NPA–NDF conflict – This article should not be named "Communist rebellion in the Philippines," since that sidelines some significant movements, notably the PKP-1930, the CPLA, and the ABB-RPA. It also effectively sidelines Marxist-Leninist history in favor of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist history. This is why this insurgency is so poorly understood by the public. My proposal is that this article be renamed "CPP-NPA-NDF Rebellion," and that "Communist rebellion in the Philippines" be made a redirect to "Communism in the Philippines," which covers all the movements, from the Unión Obrera Democrática right on up to the present. CPP, NPA, and NDF should remain their own articles although they are linked, because there are key differences in the strucutre and funciton of each organization. Additionally: the WP:NPOV title for this is "conflict", not "rebellion" or "insurrecton." Unless what we want is a review of the conflict from a tactical/strategic standpoint, but that does not seem to be the intent of this article. Also, note that CPP-NPA-NDF is accepted and used Philippine Government Security Agencies such as the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process, as demonstrated on their website at [] .

While the branding will remain as "Tokyo 2020", Wikipedia's current article name does not reflect the branding nor the locale — just "2020 Summer Olympics" — which is now unquestionably incorrect. I propose "2021 Summer Olympics" as the best alternative, but if there are other suggestions they should be discussed as well. Some possibilities would be "2021 Olympics" (as they may not 100% take place during summer), "Tokyo 2020" (to reflect the branding which will be retained), or "2021 Tokyo Olympics".— Crumpled Firecontribs 14:15, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Being a NASCAR fan, the racing driver Zane Smith could potentially be on his way to have a lot of success/be a big name in the near future, while the baseball player Zane Smith seems like he was just average/another baseball player that wasn't standout or anything, plus he played way back in the 1980's and 90's, so not many people may know about him.

  • (Discuss)Jordanian annexation of the West BankJordanian occupation of the West Bank – This is referred to as an annexation while the Israeli annexation of the Golan is referred to as an “occupation”. Both offer full citizenship, both faced limited recognition internationally (both even were recognized by one member of the UN Security Council), and both faced push back against sovereignty from parts of their respective populations (however, both were not conquered from a previous sovereign, as the West Bank had no sovereign while Golan did; if this is relevant though, then the current Israeli occupation of east Jerusalem ought to be characterized as an annexation (wouldn’t apply to the rest of the West Bank given Israel’s lack of claim at this moment to the area). I propose the name of this article be changed to “occupation” or the Israeli occupation of the Golan henceforth be referred to as an “annexation” given the similarities between the situations.

  • (Discuss)Boney M.Boney M – Both the proposed name (i.e. no full stop) and the current name (i.e. with full stop) are used by news articles. Books may have used either one as well, but may more likely recently omit full stop. (eBook edition of band member's autobiography uses full stop.) Even if the full stop is part of the band's official name, seems that the one without the full stop is more commonly used. Somehow, Google wouldn't exclude the name with the full stop in search results for some technical reason. Checking sources from this and last year, Billboard uses full stop. PhilStar omits full stop. (More sources listed below.) I think omitting the full stop is more beneficial for most readers, including those preferring to not using it for manual searches. Also, per WP:DIVIDEDUSE, if I'm proven wrong, and if both the proposed and current names are commonly used, then the proposed name is less surprising than the current one because, I think, many people don't expect the full stop to be there. Moreover, per WP:CRITERIA, it's consistent with articles like Melody (Japanese singer), Janet (album), and Gangsta (manga). If the article were to be moved, then other articles using the band's name should be moved as well.

  • (Discuss)A-Channel (Craig Media) → A-Channel (TV network) – The current title is uncommon disambiguation not supported by WP:NCBC. According to the article, The A-Channel is a television system. According to television system in Canada, a television system is a group of television stations which share common ownership, branding and programming, but which for some reason does not satisfy the criteria necessary for it to be classified as a television network under Canadian law. As the term "television system" has no legal definition, and as most audiences and broadcasters usually refer to groups of stations with common branding and programming as "networks" regardless of their structure, the distinction between the two entities is often not entirely clear; indeed, the term is rarely discussed outside the Canadian broadcasting enthusiast community. Seeing as how the article says that the definition of "television system" is rarely discussed outside the Canadian broadcasting enthusiast community, that seems like using "television system" as disambiguation would be MOS:JARGON and per WP:RECOGNIZABILITY should be avoided. So per WP:NCBC "(TV network)" is the better option.

  • (Discuss)Dhammakaya MovementDhammakaya tradition – Per reasons provided by Wikiman above: "First, the article and sources define it as a Thai Buddhist tradition, so it would be perfectly accurate to call it such and would be a superior way to convey information to readers quicker. Second, it is noted by Newell[21] on pages 15–16 that the term Dhammakaya Movement is sometimes used interchangeably with Wat Phra Dhammakaya by various scholars, which can be very confusing, especially if a reader was to do further reading and read stuff about the Dhammakaya Movement when the scholar or source was really just talking about Wat Phra Dhammakaya specifically. Since this page is clearly about the wider tradition that began at Wat Paknam that just happens to include Wat Phra Dhammakaya as well as several other temples, it would be beneficial if we titled the article in a way that makes the distinction clear. Dhammakaya tradition would be good way to do this, and it would still be very much accurate, since it is a Buddhist tradition."

Macedonia, an independent republic, an independent parliamentary monarchy with Prince Leka as monarch, merger with Albania, or merger with Kosovo.

  • (Discuss)Swiss cheeseSwiss cheese (North America) – The American cheese discussed in this article is very clearly not the primary topic, and the title is downright misleading. The American cheese is unknown outside North America, and frankly I find it pretty insulting to the 450+ types of real Swiss cheeses to have this stuff take the plain title. Despite this misleading title, it does not even get the top views - see this analysis, where it gets 1/3 of the views of Emmental cheese, and fewer than Raclette & Gruyere (I added this one to Category:Swiss cheeses just for the duration of this RM - obviously it should not be there long-term). "Swiss cheese" should redirect to the disam page Swiss cheese (disambiguation), under that title or the plain name. That should look something like this recent version. There are some pertinent comments in the ill-attended and confused discussion 5 years ago (see above), where the proposal was left unclear - always fatal. I see no merit in a merge of anything.

The formerly widespread usage of "Mrs. Thrale" is rooted in Samuel Johnson's insistence that she be called by her former husband's surname in his presence instead of any sort of academic convention.

Not entirely sure what the correct one should be, but KLEA (defunct), the first title this article was moved to, isn't correct either; earlier RMs at other articles have deprecated "defunct" as a disambiguator, the official call sign was KLEA-FM with the "-FM" suffix (the naming conventions for North American broadcast stations have long said that article titles reflect the official call sign, but have no set standard for defunct stations' disambiguators), and there is an equally-defunct KLEA (AM). The two most logical options I can think of are KLEA-FM (Lovington, New Mexico) (the current KLEA (FM) is licensed to serve Hobbs instead) or KLEA-FM (1965–2017) (it never had any other call sign, limiting the confusion that may or may not otherwise exist with that disambiguator), but there might be other paths as well.

  • (Discuss)Pinks → Pinks (TV series) – DAB from Dianthus/Dianthus plumarius, Pink and Fox hunting. Although per WP:PLURALPT the colour isn't a strong contender for "Pinks" like with Oranges its probably likely enough but the flower is more relevant like the fruit is with the plural form since plants can be referred to in the plural form. A Google search returns most results for the plant but the singer and colour WP articles do come up on the 1st page of results but the TV series doesn't. An images search shows most results for the flower but the colour is also there, again the TV series isn't. A Books search again mainly shows the flower but the singer is the 1st result. "Pinks" should probably redirect to Pink (disambiguation) per WP:DABCOMBINE and PLURALPT (similar to the Paper/Papers example) but a separate DAB page could be created. Pinks does return the TV series 1st but the singer, colour and Shades of pink are next. By views[[27]] the TV series gets 694 but Dianthus gets 7,517 (which would probably be primary if anything by PT#2), Dianthus plumarius gets 789, the colour article gets 14,874 and the hunting article gets 7,947 but that's probably not a strong candadate since the meaning is only mentioned there, only appearing once.

  • (Discuss)Limes → Limes (frontier)WP:ASTONISH, DAB from Lime (fruit), Limes (magazine) and Lime tree. By PT#2 the fruit/tree would likely be primary. See similar cases like Bones, Bookends, Cars, Cats, Parachutes and Pixies which no only does the specific meanings not take precedence, the general meanings do. I propose that like Dockers, Cuts and Threads we redirect "Limes" to Lime per WP:DABCOMBINE since there are quite a few meanings that would be on both DAB pages if split. While its true that per WP:PLURALPT users can be expected to use the singular more often they are still full matches and anyway it gives the examples of Cars and Bookends redirecting to the singular named article. When I Google limes most of the results are for the fruit other than "Limes Hotel" in Needham Market and "The Limes" near Ipswich but that's probably because of my location. An Images search returns all results for the fruit until quite a way down of which is an images from this article. A Books search does return more results for the Roman meaning but oddly the material is also there. On Commons, Commons:Category:Limes is about the fruit with the Roman meaning at Commons:Category:Limes (frontier). By views[[28]] the Roman meaning has 3,173 but the fruit has 14,926 and the tree has 12,880 and the magazine has 160. Also the material has 20,784 and the colour has 2,648 but per PLURALPT and the Oranges example these aren't strong candidates for "Limes" since these are mass nouns but the fact that the material comes up in a Books search does provide counter evidence. I would not however redirect "Limes" to the fruit since it might send readers coming onto the page from external sites per User:Andrewa/Incoming links so having no primary topic makes sense in addition to the other uses such as the tree and the magazine. The lead of the DAB page could be changed to "Lime" or "Limes" may refer to. This was moved in 2013 but this was reverted, see also discussion with the user that moved it. The fruit is also a level 5 vital article and is known by virtually everyone and although the Roman meaning might have been important in the past, its likely that even then the fruit would still be more so. A Limes returns the fruit, then the Roman article, then the DAB page, then different fruit articles such as Persian lime. Crouch, Swale (talk) 17:49, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)1968 flu pandemicHong Kong flu – The renaming of this article from "Hong Kong flu" to "1968 flu pandemic" was unsubstantiated. Almost every source (verified by searches and Google Ngrams) refers to this outbreak as the "Hong Kong flu". The citation in support of the alternate name is a misinterpretation of an Encyclopedia Britannica article in which are not found the words "1968 flu pandemic" without also being spliced by "Hong Kong". —General534 (talk) 11:10, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Crusader statesOutremer – There has been a long debate on scope and definition of the Crusades at []. Consensus is that that article focusses on the Levantine crusades, rather than attempting to cover the entire scope of the subject, another article is created for the wider context but also this article focuses on the Outremer e.g. Levant rather than be broad collection of unrelated locations. These could be included in any new broader article. Norfolkbigfish (talk) 16:42, 10 March 2020 (UTC) Relisting. BegbertBiggs (talk) 18:32, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Surya NamaskārSurya Namaskar – Remove diacritic to facilitate search and be in line with other articles on yoga asanas. The current spelling is also mistaken (the full IAST spelling would have two diacritics, Sūrya Namaskār) so we need to avoid that error. The article gives the IAST spelling once to explain the Sanskrit, and otherwise uses no diacritic marks. Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:16, 20 March 2020 (UTC)


  • (Discuss)List of unlawfully killed transgender peopleList of people killed for being transgender – Followup to the above RM, in which I proposed that we intentionally re-scope and rename this list to be something more typical for Wikipedia, more focused on the important aspect, prevent the list from growing exponentially as it has been, and avoid several categories of WP:NOT, WP:RUNOFTHEMILL, and WP:BLP. I believe that most people would expect that this list would only include those people for whom their transgender status was tied directly to the circumstances of their deaths according to sources. Scoped as it is now, the inclusion criteria is so broad that it dilutes the topic. As mentioned above, this scoping would also allow listing of those killed under lawful circumstances within their countries, such as death penalties for being transgender.

  • (Discuss)List of deaths from the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic → List of deaths due to COVID-19 – As the editor most recently reverting to the current title him/herself admits, people do not die of or from a pandemic, but from a disease. If it becomes a long term issue and numbers become untenable, then it might be necessary to limit and rename this again as something like 'List of deaths due to COVID-19 during the 2020 epidemic', but that is a decision for the future. In the meantime, let's be correct and not look like we cannot distinguish between a disease and the spread of said disease. Kevin McE (talk) 09:09, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Günther SteinerGuenther Steiner – This page was recently moved by Marbe166 asserting that this is the correct spelling of his name but has offered no evidence to support this claim. Now it was pointed out in the discussion above that ue is equivivlant to ü however it appears that he doesn't spell it this way, check out his profile on the website of the sports team he is in charge of. Wikipedia should spell his name as he spells it, not how it should be spelt in correct German, we don't exist to "correct" how he chooses to spell his own name becuase all the eviedence suggests that he spells it as Guenther and not Günther Therefore it doesn't make sense for this page to exist at Günther Steiner.

  • (Discuss)African U-20 Cup of Nations for Women → ? – Okay so basically there's no trophy, no host country or anything that indicates the existence of a competition called African U-20 Cup of Nations for Women. It's simply a qualifying tournament for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and that means the current title should be changed. For me the only suitable options are either African U-20 Women's World Cup Qualifying Tournament or FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup African Qualifying Tournament, despite both might break WP:RECOGNIZABILITY. I couldn't think of other possible titles and I wouldn't mind if someone bring up another suitable title, but definitely I'd be against keeping the current title for the reason I mentioned above.

  • (Discuss)History of the worldHistory of humanity – I am afraid this could be evaluated again. WP:PRECISE: in order to further distinguish from History of the world, World history and History of Earth. This discussion has been held previously at Talk:History_of_the_world/Archive_1 (2006), Talk:History_of_the_world/Archive_3 (2013). Earlier opposition to this proposal has argued that "world" was meant in a decisively anthropocentric sense (as in the recorded memory of the experience of Homo sapiens) by historians such as Walter Raleigh, and that "humanity" is a polysemy. Yet, the precise contrary could easily be argued. Using "world" in the the sense of pertaining to humanity may strike many a contemporary Wikipedia contributor as too bold in its assumption of an anthropocentric interpretation on part of the average reader. While arguments may be valid especially from a purely academic perspective, "History of humanity" could still be considered at least less bad (as in less ambiguous) and WP:LEAST astonishing than "History of the world", casually speaking. Hence it may be argued that the policy favouring traditional scholarly doctrine should perhaps after all give preference to WP:COMMONNAME in the service to the readers in this case? A possible alternative solution would be "History of humankind", but not sure that is really necessary. Please note that, as discussed priorly, a History of the world (disambiguation) would still be maintained to meet the academic term (along with the other possible meanings).

  • (Discuss)USA Track & Field Indoor Championships → ? – The article base for this competition is split between USA Track & Field Indoor Championships and USA Indoor Track and Field Championships following moves from User:Infinite mission last year and there hasn't been any significant discussion on this topic to decide what the common name is. The organising body USA Track & Field does not appear to have a standard name for the competition and has called it USATF Indoor Championships, USA Indoor Track and Field Championships and USA Indoor Track & Field Championships among other names without indicating any as a specific brand change. Therefore I would suggest we ignore official naming and look to broader sources for guidance. Quoted search engine results in order of frequency of term: *"USATF Indoor Championships" 124,000 *"USATF Indoor Track and Field Championships" 70,000 *"USATF Indoor Track & Field Championships" 39,000 *"USA Track and Field Indoor Championships" 33,000 *"US Indoor Track and Field Championships" 28,000 *"USA Indoor Track and Field Championships" 25,000 *"USA Indoor Track & Field Championships" 5000 *"USA Track & Field Indoor Championships" 4500 (current) *"US Indoor Track & field Championships" 4000 *"US Track and field Indoor Championships" 1400 There are many names in use and I'm not personally invested in any of them, but I do think the article base should share a name. Given the current name is clearly a minority term, I suggest a move to USATF Indoor Championships based on the above results. SFB 20:08, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Lusophony GamesLusofonia Games – There was a recent move of numerous articles on the Lusophony Games to use Lusophone Games by User:Bruxism. I started to revert the move back to the long-standing Lusophony Games, but now realise this has been done across many pages and categories without any wider discussion, so I am loth to make a change that affects 100s of articles again without further discussion on the common name for the competition. Search engine results for Wikipedia's long-standing name for this competition ("Lusophony Games") [33] easily outnumber those for "Lusophone Games" [34], but the term "Lusofonia Games" actually has double the results of either [35]. The only English-speaking nation that takes part in this competition is India and looking at Indian news websites again reveals that Lusofonia Games is comfortably the preferred term (Times of India, Deccan Herald, Indian Express,The Hindu) I think this coverage should take precedence for our common name considerations, given that the majority of English-language coverage comes from India and it rarely receives coverage in the press of other English-speaking nations.

  • (Discuss)I Love Me → I Love Me (film) – Only other "I Love Me" with an article is a five-day-old song that is far too recent to be the primary topic. However, I feel it's still a far more likely primary topic than an Indian film that I can't find many reliable sources about via Google, and that peaked on Google Trends for a few months after its release in 2012 but has since dropped significantly in popularity and now mostly gains interest in Asia. The song can stay where it is for now, but I don't think the film should be at the basename. vaporgaze💬 18:18, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Tiridates III of ArmeniaTiridates IV of Armenia – There was seemingly a Tiridates III who ruled in 287-293 (as shown in the image section of the Iranica article [36]). Also, here is what James Russell states in his work "Zoroastrianism in Armenia, p. 170": "In his inscription at Paikuli, Narseh refers to one Trdat, king of Armenia. Since the inscription was made in 29 3-4, it cannot refer to a Tiridates who was not yet king. Toumanoff therefore suggests that Xosrov was killed by Tiridates III, his brother, the Anak of the legend, who was made king of Armenia by the Sasanians; Xosrov's son, Tiridates IV, escaped to Rome and returned to take the throne in 298." There are lot of other sources who use the regnal number IV for this "Tiridates", such as the The Oxford Handbook of Iranian History, The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Zoroastrianism and so on.--HistoryofIran (talk) 01:40, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Copycat suicideSuicide contagion – Suicide contagion is somewhat broader, since a suicide can be regarded as a copycat one only if the why and how of it is similar or identical to another suicide, however if a suicide is triggered by another, then the term suicide contagion can be applied, in spite of the fact that the why or how of the former may be dissimilar to the latter.

  • (Discuss)Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse → Moritz von Hessen – The current article title gives the impression that his title is Landgrave of Hesse. In fact, like all German nobility, the Landgravate was abolished a century ago. His surname is "Prinz und Landgraf von Hessen", just like it is for everyone in his family, but this is not a title and it shouldn't be treated as such or translated into English. It's just a last name. German Wikipedia simply calls him "Moritz von Hessen", and it makes sense to follow their lead. Smurrayinchester 10:00, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Donatus, Landgrave of Hesse → Heinrich Donatus von Hessen – The current title suggests that "Landgrave of Hesse" (Landgraf von Hessen) is his title. In fact, like all German "titles", "Prinz und Landgraf von Hessen" is just a surname and carries no meaning beyond that. We wouldn't put a comma in the title of, say, "Angela, Merkel" or "Bastian, Schweinsteiger", nor would we translate their surnames into English ("Bastian, of Schweinsteig"). "Heinrich Donatus von Hessen" is the title the German Wikipedia uses, and seems like the best combination of names. Smurrayinchester 09:38, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Trials of ManaSeiken Densetsu 3 – This article about the 1995 Famicom game, not its 2019 rerelease, or its upcoming remake, so it should have never been moved to Trials of Mana. Looking at the sourcing used in this very article, they all continue to use the name Seiken Densetsu 3 when writing about the original release, the upcoming remake, and the collection that was released. This is after all how English sourcing has referred to it for over 20 years. More recent reliable sources continue referring to the game by this name, and use Trials of Mana to refer exclusively to the rerelease/upcoming remake. Examples of this include: Nintendo Life, Gematsu, Destructoid. From this, I think it is safe to say that the WP:COMMONNAME is still Seiken Densetsu 3. Alt (talk) 06:49, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Channel 33 (Israel)Channel 33 (Israeli TV channel) – Apparently, this needs a pointless RM. WP:NCBC is very clear on how article titles should be handled. # Common name # Disambiguation – Articles about channels should use (radio channel) or (TV channel). # The addition of the country or other clarifying adjective can be used to further disambiguate. This means that Channel 33 (Israel) does not follow the guideline. As it uses the country name and not the media type and not the country adjective. Instead of fighting this issue over and over, if one disagrees with how the guideline is written, they should seek consensus to change it, and not try and force WP:LOCALCONSENSUS.

  • (Discuss)The Hope of GloryThe Hope of Glory: Reflections on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cross – This is the correct name of the book, as per the first line of the article. That name already redirects to this page. The short title can redirect to this for now, but Goodreads lists 129 books with "The Hope of Glory" as an element of the title, including multiple books denoted by that name alone. The Hope of Glory is also a theological concept, so it is likely that a disambiguation page would eventually be required. This new book is just one in a long list of works with the title, some notable, others not. It is WP:TOSOON to assert that this book is so notable it deserves the primary use of the term.

  • (Discuss)The Family Channel (American TV network) → ? – also The Family Channel (United States). These two networks/channels called "The Family Channel" are for two different networks, by two different entities that operated in the United States in different time periods. However, while I realize this is not a standard proposal, as one is an article and the other is a redirect, almost all the google search results I get when searching for "The Family Channel" are for the 1980s-1990s channel. Even when viewing the Page views one can see that the page History of Freeform (TV channel) gets much more page views. While by itself not enough, looking at how high the page views are for The Family Channel, the dab page, which even it has a higher monthly view count than this page (and the dab page doesn't even link to the history page), suggests that readers are not landing on the page they are looking for. This scenario while not standard, is causing harm that a hatnote cannot solve. Not only can readers be confused (see WP:ASTONISH), even editors are incorrectly linking articles to the wrong "The Family Channel" - Solid Gold (TV series) links here instead of to the original network, and Category:The Family Channel original programming is meant for the original network as well. All this points to me that the title "The Family Channel (American TV network)" and it's derivatives (including "The Family Channel (United States)") are ambiguous (see WP:INCDAB) and should be further disambiguated to differentiate between the two, and the title redirected to the dab page. This will allow easier finding for readers, and allow bot warnings for editors linking to the incorrect page. Regarding the proposed names, I really have no clue what the optimal names should be as Wikipedia:Naming conventions (broadcasting) does not give an example for such situations.

  • (Discuss)Catholic Diocese of Helsinki → ? – This move (and the broader, associated moves), are to deal with a small, but longstanding problem in the Catholic diocese pages. Ever since Roman Catholic Church the move has been to depreciate the naming convention from Roman Catholic to Catholic. However, most of the diocese pages remain as Roman Catholic diocese of X to reflect their identity as latin rite parishes. Thus the name has a functional, (and quite useful purpose). This has been extended to other rites, ie, Byzantine Catholic, and allows for disambiguation, ie, two dioceses that occupy the same physical area, (or city), but differ in their rites. Therefore, I propose this solution. For all Latin rite dioceses that are currently not named Roman Catholic diocese of X per the naming convention, that they will be changed back to Roman Catholic diocese of X. I am happy to do all the moves manually with the help of administrators to deal with the page histories, and with the redirects, etc. When we did this before Anthony Applewhite helped me do this. This would resolve the haphazard approach of previous requested moves that have resulted in some pages being Catholic diocese of X, while 95 percent of the 3k diocese articles are Roman Catholic diocese of X. Unlike some of the other changes which were cosmetic, the naming convention Roman Catholic conveys additional meaning that is lost from the change to Catholic diocese of X. This discussion has long been percolating over individual move discussions, so I think it's finally time to have this discussion here.
