I've integrated the material here into Peter Cook and now I don't know what to do with this article. Does it need to be deleted or what (I don't know how to do that anyway)? I suppose this text might be moved to the Peter Cook talk page or something. I really don't know. --Camembert

I've turned it into a redirect to Cooking unless someone has any better ideas. (The only remaining links to it are in a cuisinal context.) --Brion VIBBER

Merger from Lawrence Cook[edit]

  • Oppose -- a reader entering the term "Lawrence Cook" and hitting Go should get the short list of Lawrence Cook, not the full list of everyone named "Cook". -- JHunterJ 20:11, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
  • reply and it could just as easily cause some thus named to be missed, by not having it centralized-see Walker for how easy and simple having one list is. Chris 04:44, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
    Walker needs to be split into a disambiguation page and a surname page, but aside from that, I don't see any of the full names merged into it. David Walker still exists, for example. If you were simply proposing to duplicate the list in Lawrence Cook here without turning Lawrence Cook into a redirect here, that'd be fine. And, I think, that wouldn't need to be discussed first. -- JHunterJ 11:19, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Surname, not dab[edit]

Note that this is a surname article, not a dab page (the dab page is at Cook (disambiguation). -- JHunterJ 23:44, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

The surname also serves as a disambiguation. Not all pages that disambig have the name in the title. Chris 00:03, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I am well aware of the naming conventions for disambiguation pages -- disambiguation pages should end with no parenthetical or with "(disambiguation)". Instead, this is a list article (or set index article) of people by name. Disambiguation pages aren't articles; lists are. See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Anthroponymy/Lists of names. -- JHunterJ 02:42, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
