Question from Science ref desk Feb 20th 2008[edit]

What would you call a small mountain range like Potrero Hills?
This is regarding a dispute on the wording of navegation disambiguation tag at the top of the similarly named neighborhood Potrero Hill, San Francisco, California. It's sloppy to say for the potrero hills see potrero hills, but one user believes that it should not state, the minor mountain range see potero hills, because they don't count as a minor mountain range, so is there some other term which could be found mutually agreeable. hill range? minor range?Boomgaylove (talk) 04:39, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Certainly the word moutain does not spring to mind if that is where you are talking about. I would have thought range would be used to describe huge area. For the disambigution why not just say See Potrero Hills for East Bay Regional Park? David D. (Talk) 05:42, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
what east bay regional park??Boomgaylove (talk) 13:26, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
All parks in the East Bay are managed by the Easy Bat Regional Park district. I assume this one is too? I could be wrong. David D. (Talk) 17:20, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Apparently its not one of their parks. http://www.ebparks.org/parks David D. (Talk) 17:38, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
I see the disambiguation at Potrero Hill, San Francisco, California currently reads For the Potrero Hills in Richmond, California, see Potrero Hills. What's wrong with that? David D. (Talk) 05:48, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

It's redundant, and the first part where it says potrero hills, in the {{Other|what it is|article title}} format is not within precedent or commom usage of that template.Boomgaylove (talk) 13:26, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

You don't have to use the template. David D. (Talk) 17:20, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

How about "bluffs"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Boomgaylove (talkcontribs) 13:27, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

The're not bluffs, the're hills. David D. (Talk) 17:20, 20 February 2008 (UTC)


I pasted the above from the ref desk since the discussion seems to be more appropriate and useful here. David D. (Talk) 18:05, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

In response to "The're not bluffs, the're hills"

Neither are they mountains. They're exactly what the article says they are: a range of low hills. Period. Enough agonizing over wording. [Added to discussion after this was pasted here.] +ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 18:15, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
