Stack (descent theory)Stack (mathematicis) – Very misleading/POV article title. A "stack" is a sort of generalization of a sheaf; it doesn't have to be limited to the descent theory. Taku (talk) 20:54, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Fixing some links to this page[edit]

I moved the title with the typo, Stack (mathematicis) (ending in "-cis") to Stack (mathematics).

The reason for moving this away from Stack (descent theory) was good but childishly naive. It didn't seem to occur to the person proposing this that the lay reader seeing "descent theory" would probably think it's about genealogy, or otherwise fail to realize it's about mathematics. Things like that should be borne in mind when choosing article titles! If Wikipedia were supposed to be simply an encyclopedia of mathematics, that would be another story.

But now we have this problem: Some pages link to Stack (descent theory). Linking through a redirect is not always really a problem, but in this case the present title seems clearly preferable. I've fixed _some_ of those links. Can others help with that too? Michael Hardy (talk) 18:53, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Changed the remaining links in _articles_only_. --Cspan64 (talk) 21:41, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
