5,6-Methylenedioxy-N-methyl-2-aminoindaneMDMAI

  • Strong oppose for now. As it stands the proposal is advocacy of the worst sort: People should use a shorter name; People should use consistent naming. WP:NC is all about what people do use, rather than telling them what they should use. The term MDMA is a common name, and ecstacy was rejected as the article name in this case because of ambiguity. Google shows me more than two million hits for MDMA (your results may differ depending on your location), while MDMAI is far rarer, less than ten thousand, many of them unrelated to this usage of the term. Other articles cited above (MDAI, MDAT, MMAI, etc) may need to be moved (or perhaps moved back?) to more common names, depending on the facts of each case. Andrewa (talk) 20:18, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Move - 2014 Edition[edit]

@Seppi333: @Boghog: This article's name is an absolute abomination, and it sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison to its isomers' titles. Most people on the internet, according to my cursory investigation, call it MDMAI. And there sure as hell isn't anyone in the real world that calls it "5,6-Methylenedioxy-N-methyl-2-aminoindane". I don't have access to the Nichols article, but if he didn't term it MDMAI I'm sure that's just because that name is essentially a "ban me" (or "I'm an analogue") tag in the DEA's eyes. Who's up for a move? Exercisephys (talk) 01:48, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Dont think I have enough experience with these types of articles to make an informed decision on the naming convention. Just based upon other articles in its categories, it's a bit longer than usual for those in Category:Entactogens and empathogens, and roughly the same length as the average in Category:Benzodioxoles.

  • SupportPMID: 21748859 is a secondary source that uses the abbreviation MDMAI. PubChem 125559 also lists it as a synonym. For consistency with the article names of related MDMA, MDAI, MDAT, MMAI, etc substances, I support the move. Boghog (talk) 04:26, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
