Page Name[edit]

I'm not crazy about the name of the page: "2016 Yerevan hostage crisis". There are currently no hostages, and there was a period about a week ago of a couple of days without hostages. Also it doesn't mention the name Erebuni or the large protests... I'd like to rename it to something else. Not sure what. 2016 Erebuni conflict? 2016 Erebuni Crisis? Something else? The page also needs a lot of work, please help! --RaffiKojian (talk) 15:02, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Or perhaps "2016 Yerevan unrest"? It would capture the broader nature this better perhaps. --RaffiKojian (talk) 23:35, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Tsrrer or Tsrer or?[edit]

It says the name is from Daredevils_of_Sassoun, but that article spells it differently, and this article uses both "Tsrrer" and "Tsrer". Does anyone know which, if any, are correct? Zeniff (talk) 11:35, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

2016 Yerevan hostage crisis2016 Yerevan police station takeover – More accurate title. The group released the hostages days before they surrendered. Երևանցի talk 17:15, 17 November 2016 (UTC) --Relisting. JudgeRM (talk to me) 18:01, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose. No rationale in terms of WP:AT. We choose article titles according to what English usage is, not what we think it should be. There's nothing wrong with the current title. It's not even worth creating a redirect from the proposed title (although it would do no harm). Andrewa (talk) 19:30, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
