Gowanus House[edit]

Is the "Gowanus House" mentioned in the article the same as the Old Stone House (Brooklyn)?

Washington ParkWashington Park (baseball) — Based on the article traffic tool, Washington Park (disambiguation) should be at Washington Park. —TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 15:11, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Support based on tool above.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 15:12, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Modify There are at least 3 different cities that have had professional baseball parks named "Washington Park", so "Washington Park (baseball)" would be a disambiguation page itself. Better it should be like Recreation Park, where each city name is parenthesized. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 15:25, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Support based on the above and just the fact that there are many Washington Park-related pages on wikipedia. Vertigo700 (talk) 16:45, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Support -- the ballpark isn't the most popular article on the site with Washington Park in the title, so it makes sense to move disambig page there. Will leave the naming of the individual ballpark articles to those most familiar with that area. --MattWright (talk) 06:17, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose use of a tool which asserts its own beta-test status for these purposes; that's worse than google. The actual statistics are 997 for Washington Park, to 1149 for Washington Park, Chicago (neighborhood); if such a self-referential metric is to be used at all (which I doubt), the proper treatment would be to dab both, probably as Washington Park, Chicago and Washington Park, Brooklyn.

  • Weak oppose. The article traffic tool has produced some ludicrous move proposals, and so its "evidence" should be disregarded. Andrewa (talk) 23:29, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose, for now. Using wikipedia page views to determine primary topic is problematically solipsistic. At the very least there needs to be a wider discussion about the appropriateness of using the tool for that purpose. olderwiser 19:05, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
