Major copyright violations[edit]

Sadly, most of that excellent content was cut & pasted from other articles on the web:

Since all of the user's substantial edits that I've looked at so far are also copy vio, and lacking anything to indicate original authorship or licensability, We've got to do a total reversion. Ouch, it was a good-looking article... I'll note the user page and I'll try to get the user to read WP:C --studerby 18:50, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

The result of the move request was: page moved. Arbitrarily0 (talk) 21:32, 18 April 2014 (UTC)


Hidatsa peopleHidatsa – Target title is currently only redirect to current title, created on March 10, 2010 by Kwami in moving "Hidatsa" to "Hidatsa people", saying only "dab". The standalone title had stood since the first version of the article by Alexwcovington on June 27, 2004, around six years of stability at that title before it was arbitrarily moved. As per closures of similar RMs in recent days by Cuchulainn and others, "consensus has spoken" that the people are the PRIMARYTOPIC, as stated by him here re the Northern Tutchone title. Guidelines such as Wikipedia:Article titles#Use commonly recognizable names and the guideline Wikipedia:Naming conventions (ethnicities and tribes) call for this move, as does WP:Conciseness and WP:Precision, WP:NCDAB and more.

Agreed. --Vihelik (talk) 13:23, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Support as per the others. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 08:01, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. In cases where the requested move simply eliminates the word "people", and the destination title is already a simple redirect to the current title, it is clear that guidelines favoring both precision and conciseness support the move. Xoloz (talk) 02:12, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
