Requested move 1 April 2015[edit]

Dominican people (Dominican Republic)Dominicans (Dominican Republic) – The demonym describing a person or thing from the Dominican Republic is Dominican and the plural form is used to describe its natives (nothing meant by word choice, its just less nationalistic than nationals.

Note: following other moves I should have put this through manually but had originally thought to RM move to Dominicans which currently acts as a redirect to the Dominican Order.

Also propose that Dominicans turned into a (dare I use the terminology in Wikipedia) navigation page which I guess is the biggest issue in the RM.

This request follows the recent request for:

And many similar articles ..." Relisted. BDD (talk) 18:19, 19 May 2015 (UTC) GregKaye 19:40, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose. This needs further discussion concerning many articles, see for example Talk:List of people from Dominica#Requested move 1 April 2015. Is there a relevant naming convention for the terms Dominican and Dominicans? Maybe not quite that detailed, but if not then we may need to develop one. Andrewa (talk) 22:11, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Support as proposed. I wouldn't oppose a move to Dominicans.--Cúchullain t/c 14:46, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment the proposed title can be used to indicate members of the Dominican Order in the Dominican Republic, so is a bad name to use -- 65.94.43.89 (talk) 03:45, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm OK with the move as proposed but could the proposed title mean members of the Dominican Order in the state formerly known as Santo Domingo? Oppose a move to Dominicans which should redirect to the disambiguation page Dominican. —  AjaxSmack  21:28, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

*Propose move to People of the Dominican Republic. The parenthetical disambiguation is rubbish, and we all know it. This proposed title stands in line with WP:NATURAL, and removes all ambiguity. RGloucester 00:58, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

this is a new way of doing things GregKaye 21:51, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
support: The only reason it should have "people" on the end is when the demonym can be used for the spoken language. Example: "French people," "English people," etc. Savvyjack23 (talk) 23:36, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
