Wikipedia:Ambox CSS classesWikipedia:Classes in Ambox CSS – The page is badly named. there are no such thing as "CSS classes" [1]. I've moved it once, but was reverted on the spurious grounds that there were "too many double redirects". That's not a valid reason to keep a bad page name; and most incoming links are from a handful of templates. An alternative new name might be simply Wikipedia talk:Classes in Ambox. Relisted again.

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • Oppose of course there are things such as "CSS classes"; ambox-notice is a CSS class. CSS classes define CSS in a discrete package. As for this page, I suggest calling it WP:Ambox CSS. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 02:43, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Agree with renaming - The IP above obviously didn't take the time to read the article referenced above. In spite of being widely used, if it's wrong it should be avoided here. Perhaps the simplest solution is to remove CSS from the title: WP:Ambox classes. —capmo (talk) 20:52, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Any additional comments:

Even according to the web page cited, the current name is commonly used. Agree however that the existence of redirects is not a good argument. Andrewa (talk) 14:04, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
