Move[edit]

I intend to move the article back to it's original name, instead of the official name, as per the Wikipedia official policy on naming conventions. The move to the official name was not discussed here first, and here is my rationale for moving it back:

  • WP:NAME states that an article should have the name that is most common in use
    • The municipality is in Norway, therefore its Norwegian name is obviously the most common name in everyday use
    • In official signage kommune, gielda/suohkan etc is included
  • The Norwegian and Sami language wikis have their articles named in those languages respectively, not both
  • Similar examples of this are en:Helsinki/fi:Helsinki/sv:Helsingfors and en:Cardiff/cy:Caerdydd

As the municipality has a significant amount of Sami speakers, I can understand it if someone feels the article should be moved to the Sami name. However, for the reasons above, I think the correct place is under its Norwegian name. - BsL 00:01, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Oppose per argument in Talk:Porsanger. I suggest the discussion continues there.Labongo 09:27, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Article needs to be moved to either Guovdageaidnu or Kautokeino, but the consensus was not reached in the above discussion,Labongo 11:13, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Support a move to Kautokeino, the form much more common in English-language sources, per WP:UE. — AjaxSmack 00:47, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support a move to Kautokeino, as per AjaxSmack. -Ulla 06:10, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. I believe the argument for using the official name blindly refuses to acknowledge that we are bound by Wikipedia naming conventions. __meco 06:59, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
