Untitled[edit]

Please explain in detail if you think otherwise. You might want to see Wikipedia:Notability for more information. Mr Tan 07:08, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

The actual name of the place is not Bodnath (which comes out बोड्नाथ in nepali) it is Bouddhanath or Bouddhanaath (which comes out बौद्ध्नाथ in nepali). The word Bouddhanath comes from Buddha (Siddartha Gautam or Gautam Buddha or Gotama) and Naath (meaning lord in nepali). So I strongly recomment the name of the article be changed to Bouddhanath. I searched "bouddhanath" but couldnt find and I believe many others have also not found the article for the same reason.

Page move[edit]

This page move was both inappropriate and misspelled. The site is most commonly known simply as "Boudhanath" and this is how it is referred to by USESCO.[1] IPSOS (talk) 17:03, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

I am very sorry if I made a mistake. I became confused by another article on the same subject in the wikify backlog. Please change as you see fit or give me instructions on what you want me to do to rectify mistakes. Sincerely, Mattisse 17:08, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
No problem. The correct place is Boudhanath, but WP won't let me move it back. I've put a db-move on the redirect page so it can be deleted to allow the move back. I'll take care of it once the delete is done... IPSOS (talk) 17:11, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
Also, looks like you were simply propagating someone else's previous confusion between 'h' and 'n'. I can't believe that the article was actually at 'Boudnanath'! IPSOS (talk) 17:14, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
