Move? (4)[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved. Andrewa (talk) 12:34, 2 October 2013 (UTC)


  • "England riots" is a series of two nouns; it should use an adjective. Article editor (talk) 18:45, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
  • This article has been the subject of multiple RMs, and this specific move was rejected in July... when you proposed it! Whack! Moves of this page should be treated as potentially controversial. --BDD (talk) 19:02, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Note: The above comment was added to contest this as an uncontroversial technical request. --BDD (talk) 23:00, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Most of the sources use England riots, and this article is part of a series: Template:Riots in England, 1981 England riots, 2001 England riots, and 2011 England riots. As BDD points out, Article editor made this same proposal in July (here). SlimVirgin (talk) 21:39, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I take no position on the move, but I note that either form is grammatically correct. "England riots" are riots which occur(red) in England. "English riots" can mean the same, or can refer to riots which are English in character (e.g., riots of English people, riots associated with or conducted in the English language). And whatever you make of these semantics, there's nothing wrong with using a noun as an adjective. Compare to, for example, England national football team. --BDD (talk) 23:00, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose this article is not concerned with the various riots concerning the English-language in 2011, nor by "English"-people outside of Britain in 2011. And we've discussed this many times before. -- 65.92.181.39 (talk) 03:06, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Chingford[edit]

Hi. I visited recently and noticed that a reference to riots in Chingford had been removed. Curious, I did some online research to find out what happened there, and came across the following:

A local newspaper article talking of a 'riot-hit shop' in Chingford A link to a Sky News clip refering to looters, and showing looters running over police officers An article from the Daily Telegraph referring to the spread of riots & looting to Chingford A contemporary blog post talking of various shops in Chingford being lootedLocal newspaper report of looting on Chingford Station road

The original paragraph referring to Chingford says "The morning of 8 August was quiet, but by evening areas across London were affected by widespread looting, arson and violence, with significant outbreaks in parts of Battersea, Brixton, Bromley, Camden, Chingford Mount, Croydon, Ealing, East Ham, Hackney, Harrow, Lewisham, Peckham, Stratford, Waltham Forest, Woolwich, and Woodgreen."

Based on the above news links, it seems to reasonable to say there was looting and violence in Chingford, and that the reference should remain. This was beginning to turn into an edit war, so I'll leave it for now and will leave it up to others to comment and decide whether the reference to Chingford is fair. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sw4geoff (talkcontribs) 18:26, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Intro organization[edit]

The third paragraph of the intro says "Along with the five deaths..." but no deaths were mentioned before. AxelBoldt (talk) 04:41, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
