A very problematic article[edit]

I've just tried making a few basic corrections to this article, but I'm not an Indian history specialist, and I'm really struggling with the sources available online. Most of the war is simply missing from this article, and I don't feel confident enough to fill in all the missing bits myself (though I seem by accident to be half-way to writing a new article on the Battle of Wadgaon, which I may try to complete in the next few days).

The War was inconclusive.However it has been wrongly given as a British defeat.I will edit the article with proper refernces. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.194.231.236 (talk) 14:54, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

First Anglo–Maratha WarFirst Anglo-Maratha War – Can somebody extinguish all Jprg1966’s page moves since December 7? I fixed several of these (such as Anglo-Aro War) by hands, but there are several dozen to fix. Since many redirects were touched (due to a MediaWiki glitch) after these incorrect moves, a user with sysop can do it faster than me. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:43, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Support – but it will be easier to get an admin to fix them if you can list them. Dicklyon (talk) 05:45, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Never mind, your link is a good list. Note to closer: the problem is that the combining forms like Anglo- and Franco- use hyphen, as the MOS points out in MOS:ENDASH, but Jprg1966 mistakenly thought they should be move to en dash. We have enough anti-en-dash sentiment around without this additional level of mistake aggravating things, so these should be rolled back. Dicklyon (talk) 05:48, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support—it's a fiddly rule, but I found it easy to take on board. On a deeper level, it makes perfect sense. Tony (talk) 00:02, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support, obviously: Jprg1966 is confusing cases like Mexican–American War (full names of both "parties"), which use an en-dash, and combining forms like Anglo- (cf. Sino-, Hiberno-, etc.), which always take a hyphen. 71.198.40.152 (talk) 10:34, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Why wasnt this request posted at Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 11:12, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
    A request to make half-hundred of moves to implement a guideline could be technical. A request to revert mass moves of a user, who is ignorant about a guideline, is not technical, if only because WP:consensus can change. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:10, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry! I wasn't looking at it as a reversion of someone's move but more as a move from endash to hyphen. Such move requests are listed on various notice boards of interested WikiProjects thereby highlighting this discussion to the members. If the move is actually just technical where the redirect of endash would anyways be left behind for simplicity, i did not see any point in inviting numerous editors here. Had the move been requested to say "First war between British and Marathas" then it would have been appropriate for some discussion. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 04:33, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
