Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Forms of government which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 11:14, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Broad concept[edit]

To AjaxSmack: With your work on this page to convert to a broad-concept article, I really don't see any reason to continue disambiguating links to it, do you? You've linked to Forms of government in the first paragraph, so that should cover it, yes? There were over 10,000 links to Government, and I've gotten that number down to about 5,650 pages.  What's in your palette? Paine  20:19, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Questionable[edit]

While I'm thankful someone started the WP:CONCEPTDAB, unfortunately almost every sentence in the text is questionable, to the point that it might be a better idea to revert to the original DAB page, at least for now. I'm also unsure if it is a good idea to change or disambiguate links to this topic, if the disambiguation is based on these IMO flawed, but at least disputable definitions. --PanchoS (talk) 21:51, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't want to sway your opinion about this article's contents, yet wouldn't it be better to improve this page rather than undo what is a good faith effort to begin a general article about the subject?  What's in your palette? Paine  21:55, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
I simply copied the text from the newly renamed forms of government article to get the ball rolling. Please feel free to change or delete any or everything. —  AjaxSmack  00:06, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
@Paine Ellsworth and AjaxSmack: OK, sure, I'm fine with that! Just wanted to avoid the problematic definitions get stuck. Regards, PanchoS (talk) 09:18, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
