Main Post OfficeMain Post Office (New Brunswick) – There are many post offices titled "Main Post Office" for their particular town (Istanbul Main Post Office, Tonopah Main Post Office, Manchester Main Post Office, Old Chicago Main Post Office, Reno Main Post Office, Long Beach Main Post Office, Winnemucca Main Post Office, Elko Main Post Office, etc.). I see nothing special about this one that it should be the Main Post Office while all others are qualified, even if those are their official names. I propose to disambiguate this title, and make Main Post Office into a disambiguation page. bd2412 T 16:57, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

What would you put in the DAB? Every building, anywhere in the world, that has 'Main Post Office' as part of its title? Or would you have Main Post Office redirect to Post Office? EdJohnston (talk) 19:29, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
We don't have, and never will have, an article on every such building, since most of them are not notable. The List of United States Post Offices only has eleven of them, and outside of that, we have one in Istanbul and one in Krakow. That's not an unreasonable collection at all. bd2412 T 21:25, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Agree that the page should be moved, but maybe EdJohnston's proposal is better. HandsomeFella (talk) 20:40, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Support but to New Brunswick Main Post Office per all 3 editors above. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:11, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I agree with everyone here and support EdJohnston's proposal moving the page to New Brunswick Main Post Office and leaving this title as a disambiguation page. Red Slash 17:04, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
    • Note: EdJohnston has not proposed to leave this title as a disambiguation page; he has proposed to delete this title. bd2412 T 17:08, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
      • Thanks. Red Slash 19:16, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
        • Based on the current contents of Wikipedia, a disambiguation page would probably look like this:

Main Post Office may refer to:

United States
Other countries
Since it was needed anyway, I have gone ahead and created this page at Main Post Office (disambiguation), so it can be moved here immediately after the current page is renamed. Cheers! bd2412 T 19:17, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
