Proposal - Swing-related dab pages "merge all" into Swing[edit]

The disambiguation pages Swing, Swingin', and Swinger are not clean-cut enough.

I propose a "merge all 3" to incorporate all articles with titles like "Swing" or any common form of the word, e.g. Swinger, Swinging, Swingin', Swings, Swingers, etc. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 20:37, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose Overlap between "Swinging" and "Swing", between "Swinger" and "Swing", and between "Swinging" and "Swinger" is minimal. The only problem with all this is the redirect of Swinging to Swing, as "Swinging" applies to only one use on the Swing page, the recently moved Swinging (sexual practice). That move needs to be reverted, as the article's topic is primary for "Swinging". The likelihood of anyone searching with "swinging" to find an encyclopedia article about swinging on a swing, or any other use of "swinging", is highly unlikely. The likelihood that anyone searching with "swinging" to find anything else listed on either the Swing or Swinger dab pages is practically zilch. --B2C 21:50, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
