This page was originally for listing cut-and-paste moves which could not be repaired due to a then-extant technical limitation. The limitation has since been removed, but this page is still available if you find a cut-and-paste move, and are not able to repair it yourself (there is a procedure for doing it, but 1. only admins can do it, and 2. it's a bit tricky).

Currently the only technical limitation is that category and file description pages can't be moved.

Admins: please read Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves and Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions.

Please read Wikipedia:New histmerge list and Wikipedia talk:New histmerge list.

The procedure[edit]

  • Place a {{histmerge|NAME OF PAGE THE ARTICLE WAS CUT FROM}} template at the new location of the article which has been moved through cut and pasting, i.e. on the article where the pasting was done.
  • If the issue is clear-cut (straight up cut-and-paste move to a better title), having this speedy delete tag on the page should be enough. In more complex cases (explained at Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves), please leave a description of the problem under the "Repair requests" section.
  • An admin will look the pages over and perform whatever tasks are necessary.
  • Once this is done, the admin will post the result here.
  • Old requests will be removed after 30 days.

Repair requests[edit]

Note: pages tagged with {{histmerge}} are automatically placed in Category:Candidates for history merging.

Please add new requests to the top of the New Requests section. Thanks.
