Conventionally, there is only one NATO summit for heads of state during a single year. The exception was 1989, when the "regular" summit in the Spring was supplemented by an emergency meeting in December. The editor who created this navbox template suggested that the article titles for these two summits should be distinguished by the name of the month in which the meetings took place. Yes, of course, I agree with that reasoning; however, I think it's better to append the dates in parenthesis after the more important information in the title.
- May 1989 Brussels summit ----> 1989 Brussels summit (May)
- December 1989 Brussels summit ----> 1989 Brussels summit (December)
In other words, I think that the date and location are arguably the most important information the title needs convey; and the months are merely included for disambiguation.
The editor who created the chart/graph on this page included no disambiguation, identifying both as simply 1989 Brussels summit. I have changed this page consistent with the changes I've already made in that navbox template.
I find it incredibly obnoxious that none of the summit articles use the word "NATO" in their names. The implicit assumption that no other summits exist in the world, other than Nato's. Talk about a total ego trip.... 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:47, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
