Requested move #1[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
moved Pi2 Ursae Majoris to 4 Ursae Majoris

move Pi2 Ursae Majoris to 4 Ursae Majoris

This is the most common name used for the star. Similar to why most people say "55 Cancri" over Rho-1 Cancri, etc. — NuclearVacuum 20:17, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Agree with move - a literature search on SIMBAD confirms that the Flamsteed designation is used more often in paper titles, plus the current article title "Pi2 Ursae Majoris" is an incorrect rendering: the 2 should be superscript. 131.111.8.96 (talk) 11:13, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support—per above reasoning.—RJH (talk)

Pi2 Ursae Majoris4 Ursae Majoris – The page was moved to 4 Ursae Majoris as the most common name after a move discussion (see above). It was then moved back to the Bayer designation by User:Chermundy without discussion. As evidence of the use of 4 Ursae Majoris over Pi2 Ursae Majoris, see the discovery paper for the planet. --Relisted Cúchullain t/c 15:23, 23 October 2012 (UTC)46.126.76.193 (talk) 20:10, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Bayer designation takes priority over Flamsteed designations. This has more to do with consistancy among the pages than the usage. Benkenobi18 (talk) 03:57, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
But not when the Bayer designation includes a number as well as the Greek letter: e.g. 55 Cancri instead of Rho1 Cancri. Double sharp (talk) 08:23, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
Looking at WP:STARNAMES I see no mention of that rather subtle distinction (which would be a sensible way of avoiding superscripts in the titles). I suggest: first determine whether or not STARNAMES is complete and correct, update it if necessary, then decide whether to rename this and any other articles in accordance with it. --Mirokado (talk) 15:20, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
