No consensus at RMs[edit]

What did you mean by this edit summary? What do you mean specifically by "RM isn't the only venue we are addressing"? Also, as a matter of practice, a no consensus result at an RM generally results in no move. A move back to a previous title is certainly acceptable in some cases, but it's the exception rather than the rule. --BDD (talk) 20:57, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

While most Move discussions take place at RM, it is not a requirement that they be posted at RM. Alternatives to the RM process include posting an RFC, or simply starting a discussion on the article's talk page, and notifying anyone who has worked on the page that the title is being discussed.
As for the "default to the previous title" being a default position... that's one of the default positions when there is no consensus for any change... whether the lack of consensus relates to title or content. When there is no consensus we go back to the last reasonably stable version (even if only temporarily, while additional attempts to form a consensus take place).
