Consensus 14 January 2017[edit]


Bangalore to Bengaluru. In 2014, Karnataka government changed the name of Bangalore to Bengaluru. The name Bengaluru is widely used now hence it is wise to change the name to Bengaluru. Many users have also asked the name to be changed.

Survey[edit]

Please add either *Oppose with a reason or *Support.

Please include the topic on KempeGowda-The founder of Bengaluru(with picture) and Lakshmi Devi- His daughter-in -law,who sacrificed her life to safeguard the city then.This is of great historical importance[edit]

Most cities have a topic on History and growth.Bangalore historys starts with KempeGowda and Lakshmi Devi.Its a mark respect to include write-ups about the founder along with the picture.

WHile Bangalore is portrayed as the IT city,Garden city..,its also important to uncover the History of this beautiful city.

Semi-protected edit request on 11 July 2017[edit]

Please change the name of the page from Bangalore to Bengaluru. The official name of the city according to Government of India is Bengaluru. You have changed names of all renamed Indian cities like Madras to Chennai, Calcutta to Kolkata, Bombay to Mumbai, Trivandrum to Thiruvananthapuram, Pondicherry to Puducherry, but you have not changed Bangalore to Bengaluru yet.

Please do the needful. 94.207.104.193 (talk) 05:56, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

I would support this, but the page is move-protected after ten failed move proposals. Power~enwiki (talk) 06:09, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Not done: page move requests should be made at Wikipedia:Requested moves. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 06:26, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
