– city of Padang in Indonesia is the primary topic. Almost all google search with keyword "padang" is about city of Padang in Indonesia *Annas* (talk) 10:03, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Support per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. A city of nearly a million should not compete with the likes of "Padang, Singapore, a field". —  AjaxSmack  15:13, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Support, this is the primary topic. The Padang people and language might someday become a rival claimant for primary topic, but right now those are a stub and a redlink respectively. — P.T. Aufrette (talk) 23:31, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. "Padang" currently is a disambig page, yet all the references relate to the city, are about Padang food, or a red links. Hurry up and move already. :) --Merbabu (talk) 01:30, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. Since the word "Padang" in Malay, Indonesian and local languages means "field" it can refer to numerous fields in the region, yet as specific place name "Padang" always refer to Padang city in West Sumatra.Gunkarta (talk) 16:50, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
