Wikipedia:Requests for history merge

This page is used for listing requests for history merges or history splitting of pages. For relatively simple cases where history merge is required, the destination page should be tagged with the {{histmerge}} template. This page should be used for requesting very complex merges, merges involving more than two pages, history merges of deleted pages, or when the use of the template is otherwise inadequate or where its usage would cause problems.

This page was originally for listing cut-and-paste moves which could not be repaired due to a then-extant technical limitation. The limitation has since been removed, but this page is still available if you find a cut-and-paste move, and are not able to repair it yourself (there is a procedure for doing it, but only administrators can do it, and it is a bit tricky!).

Administrators need to read Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves and Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions.

The procedure

  • Place a {{histmerge|NAME OF PAGE THE ARTICLE WAS CUT FROM}} template at the new location of the article which has been moved through cut and pasting, i.e. on the article where the pasting was done.
  • If the issue is clear-cut (straight up cut-and-paste move to a better title), having the template on the page should be enough. In more complex cases (explained at Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves), please leave a description of the problem under the "Repair requests" section.
  • An administrator will look over the pages and perform whatever tasks are necessary.
  • Once this is done, the admin may post the result here.

My apologies if this is an impossible request and/or in the wrong place. An IP editor moved information from the iOS version history page about Apple TV to the tvOS article, where I think it belongs. However, they moved this information through two copy/paste edits: cut from iOS version history diff paste to tvOS diff. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a clean way to move this history to the proper article while keeping accurate attribution information. Is this something that can be handled with this process?  ~ PaulT+/C 15:08, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
