Move from "Arms" to "arms"[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the debate was to move all the pages without a bot, just like in the good ole days! --Lox (t,c) 19:27, 3 February 2006 (UTC)


I don't know of any reason to capitalize the word Arms in articles like Coat of Arms of Cuba. I move that the word Arms be made lowercase in the title of every such article. dbenbenn | talk 01:44, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Wow, that's a lot of articles to correct - but like you I can't see any reason for the word 'arms' having a capital letter. I would have hoped for more of a response than this! --Lox (t,c) 12:29, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
I agree with this completely. Good luck with all the work you'll have to do, though... I assume you've got a bot ready for that? ;) —Nightstallion (?) 00:59, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
Kids these days, always expecting bots to do everything. We used to know the meaning of a good day's work! I'll start moving them manually, with a link to this discussion in the summary. Feel free to help out. dbenbenn | talk 13:44, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
Good stuff, am helping out as well (having stolen your edit summary!) --Lox (t,c) 18:50, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
Done. Though my edit summary was rather lazy ("WP:NC"). —Nightstallion (?) 19:24, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

A lot of these are called "state emblems" or "state seals" etc., and aren't really coats of arms in the traditional Western heraldic sense... AnonMoos 15:59, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
