Move request from "Foo people" to "Foo" over many articles[edit]

There is a moverequest for a number of articles on Native American ethnic groups, proposing to move them from "Foo people" to just "Foo" here. And another one here User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 18:32, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

All of those discussions are centralized at Talk:Chipewyan people#Requested move; because of the 30-title limit on bulk RMs, there wound up being four groups of them, with other listings of the other 90 articles at Talk:Cayuga people#Requested move, Talk:Yaquina people#Requested move, and Talk:Yupik peoples#Requested move. All twelve Canadian provincial and territorial ethno-article categories and about seven US state categories containing titles having the problems which these bulk RMs are intended to address, towards a usable guideline, instead of willy-nilly application of differing guidelines and false claims of PRIMARYTOPIC. Conflict with the usual meaning of "FOO people" meaning "individuals who are FOO" is a problem best resolved per WP:UCN re conciseness/brevity of titling is to make them simply "FOO" (rather than use a confusing designation). "Established practice across all ethno articles" was falsely claimed, as this is demonstrably not the case e.g. Cree. If "people" has been needlessly added to ethnic group titles in Africa, Australia or wherever where disambiguation was never needed, why that was done is up to question, as also by who, as around 90% of the items in these RMs (if not more, as may well be the case) were done, without consensus or procedure of any kind, by in the case of the North American articles on editor acting alone (an editor who is not known for ever admitting he was wrong in doing something, and bitterly fought back against five related RMs last year, all of which produced "FOO" (where FOO=native endonym) as the result. Established practice that ignored consensus, and whose proponents don't even acknowledge such titles as existing ("established practice across ALL etnno articles" is a quote from the above editor's post at Talk:Chipewyan people#Requested move and, as usual, is not just misleading but blatantly false.Skookum1 (talk) 19:13, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

CfD discussion for societies and cultures[edit]

There is a discussion going on right now at WP:Categories for discussion that involves changing the category names for all cultures, from, for example, "Afghan society" to "Society of Afghanistan". I can see that next will be changing "German culture" to "Culture of Germany" and the like. This would be for all ethnicities, nationalities and cultures.
If you would like to weigh in, the conversation is occurring at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 March 27#Society by country. Liz Read! Talk! 14:51, 29 March 2014 (UTC)


The usage of Taku (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views) is under discussion, see talk: Taku people -- (talk) 09:14, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

also Talk:Tlingit people, Talk:Tsimshian people, Talk:Tagish people and others still open. Tahltan, Kaska Dena, Nisga'a, Gitxsan and many more have already been moved to without-people titles, though in this case the Taku River - not really an ambiguity elegible as a disambiguation for Taku - might get more hits in view results; but it is not the same title so not a candidate for PRIMARYTOPIC.Skookum1 (talk) 09:32, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
