Moved page[edit]

Whilst disambiguating entries in List of United Kingdom locations, I came across a couple of improperly disambiguated entries for places called Abernethy. As part of tidying these up, I ended up moving Abernethy to Abernethy, Perth and Kinross. Only after I'd done this, and fixed a good number of links, did I discover the discussion in Talk:Abernethy, Perth and Kinross. Apologies for not looking first.

I do not propose to revert my own changes. In my defence, I would say that Abernethy is such an unlikely choice for a primary use disambiguation, when well know cities like Boston and San Francisco struggle to make the grade, and pretty well known places like Windsor (as in the House of Windsor) fail. Generally WP only goes for primary use disambiguation for a place if the place is globally well known, and I don't really think too many people in the US, China or even France would be able to locate Abernethy on a map.

Incidentally, there is precedence that the fact, that all other Abernethys are named after this one, is not relevant to the decision on what disambiguation model to use. That argument was roundly dismissed in the discussions on Boston (a claim for the Boston in Lincolnshire) and Windsor.

If you must move it back, then please go ahead and request a move. I reserve the right to oppose. -- Chris j wood 17:59, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

I object to your move. And, so you know, you don't have to make a request to revert a unilateral move. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 20:47, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
