How exactly do I have no right to remove an incorrect project tag? —Xezbeth (talk) 16:28, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Oh, and since I cannot be bothered involving other people in something as ridiculous as this, please look at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation/Archive 33#Question regarding Oppenheimer page. This is an identical situation so please just concede that the disambiguation tag has no place on this article. —Xezbeth (talk) 16:35, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia:PROJGUIDE#OWN. Specifically

Similarly, if a WikiProject says that an article is within their scope, then you may not force them to remove the banner. No editor may prohibit a group of editors from showing their interest in an article per Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Wikiproject tags on biographies of living people.

But the WikiProject doesn't say that this article is within our scope. In fact, we say that this article is not within our scope. -- JHunterJ (talk) 17:55, 16 November 2013 (UTC)


I made this page redirect to Ronald Fairbairn, the most notable member of this long list and the one most people are likely to be searching for if they type in the query "Fairbairn". I moved the contents of this page to a new page, Fairbairn (surname). And on Ronald Fairbairn's page, I added a disambiguation link to the surname page. (talk) 04:02, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

unless there is a compelling reason, redirects do not trump disambiguation/list pages. Please don't make sweeping changes like this without discussing them first. GimliDotNet (talk) 04:12, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
