Removed erroneous Dispute tag[edit]

There was a dispute tag active on this article in spite of no evidence of dispute. Link was to a non-existent section of the talk page that doesn't appear (via History) to have ever existed.

Tempted to remove the Unsourced tag as well seeing as the entire relevant IRS Code is linked the body article, but left that in place for now. 66.195.102.82 (talk) 20:39, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Move to Coverdell Education Savings Account ?[edit]

Since that's what the IRS calls them these days. I think I updated all of the redirects properly, we just need an admin to properly move it over so that the page history is properly maintained. j-beda 19:37, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Rollovers[edit]

It would be nice if somebody outlined if you could rollover a 529 into a Coverdell - and vice versa - and how that process would be done (if allowed). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.119.97.110 (talk) 02:29, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

The result of the debate was Moved. —Centrxtalk • 06:03, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Education Savings Accoun → Coverdell Education Savings Account – The proper name is "Coverdell Education Savings Account" and the article is not talking about generic "education savings accounts". I foolishly created "Coverdell Education Savings Account" and messed around with that a bit, so now I cannot just use the "move" link to move "Education Savings Account" and its history to the new name. Next time I'll think a bit first before diving right in. j-beda 19:59, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

I see what you are saying except Education Savings Account with majuscules is a proper noun so it shouldn't be confused with general education savings accounts. That said, there's no harm in being more specific, so take this as a support. Now to the technical details, you can fix your snafu by merging the content in Coverdell Education Savings Account into this one and making that a redirect here. When the target of a move is only a redirect to the article you are trying to move to the target, I think it lets you do that. I'm not sure because as an admin I can just delete the target article to make way for the move. - Taxman Talk 22:40, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

I was going to just to a "manual move and re-direct" as Taxman suggested, but that would leave the older article history back with the older article, while a "move" gets the page history moved as well. j-beda 19:11, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I was talking about using the move function too, I was just explaining you have to have a clean target to move it to. - Taxman Talk 20:04, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't quite read your statement fully. What you suggested is what I tried, but with either a blank page or a redirect page, the "move" function balked and said, "no can do". I think that it is to prevent "move wars". Once a page has been edited, you cannot simply move another page to that page (if it has only been a redirect you might be able to do so, but once it has had other content, no can do.) j-beda 20:27, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
