Untitled[edit]

The title of this page should be: Jókai, Mór. Jókai was the surname, Mór the Christian name.

The above (anonymous) suggestion is not usual in Wikipedia, however, Hungarian names are usually written with accents (except for the letters not present in Latin-1 character set, and unless a person anglicized his/her name). So it should be named Mór Jókai, in accordance with the current practice.

I second that. BTW is there some new rule on WP that we have to vote about it instead of simply moving the page? Seems awfully bureaucratic to me... Alensha 19:40, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)

No, there's no such new rule, I just couldn't move the article myself for some reason (WP didn't let me do so), that's why I had to make a request for it. --Adam78 01:11, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)

There was already a short article at Mór Jókai. I copied the more complete text there and made this one a redirect. Alensha 20:34, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I'm afraid it was not wise of you. Anybody could have done this copy-paste. This practise is not recommended (practically forbidden) in Wikipedia, since this way the history of a page (who corrected & inserted what) completely gets lost. I suppose this action of yours will soon be reverted. Please try to refrain from doing it again. --Adam78 22:00, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Oops, sorry, I didn't know that. I'm reverting them. Alensha 19:24, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Sorry, today Komarom was at Jokai-time Szőny. --Mt7 16:20, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
