Ian Watkins (Lostprophets)Ian Watkins (singer) – move semi-protected article per Manual of Style. memphisto 12:36, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

This is a contested "please revert undiscussed move" request (permalink). Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:57, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
  • @Memphisto and Galobtter: queried move request Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:58, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
  • There is another singer named Ian Watkins: Ian_"H"_Watkins, and quite a bit of moves in the log of page Galobtter (pingó mió) 14:08, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose per Galobtter and BLP concerns arising from confusion between the 2. IffyChat -- 09:16, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
    I also oppose the suggestion below that either of them are the primary topic, both of them had comparably successful careers as singers in a band, and the current disambiguation (natural/nickname for H, parenthical for this one) works fine. IffyChat -- 10:00, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose given obvious risk of confusion and past discussions. Ghmyrtle (talk) 11:09, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose on the basis there are two singers with that name (although the other one Ian "H" Watkins isn't an exact match). Also, Watkins is far more notable for his sexual offences than for his former singing career. I agree "Lostprophets" isn't an appropriate DAB, and suggest either "Lostprophets singer", "criminal" or "paedophile" (although not sure about how WP:NPOV applies to this. jamacfarlane (talk) 13:52, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose As there's another singer, although I'd probably support a straight move to Ian Watkins as a WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 16:44, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose Only if there are no others, but this Ian Watkins isn't the only Ian Watkins to be a singer. --Stephen"Zap" (talk) 20:04, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
