Requested move 1[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Move. The proposed title already redirects here and isn't ambiguous with any other article. Cúchullain t/c 14:30, 30 November 2012 (UTC)



R33 World's Fair (New York City Subway car)R33 World's Fair – There is no reason to disambiguate the page, per WP:DAB. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 02:53, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose – the "disambiguation" gives the title meaning, recognizability, and precision, without hurting anything or being over-precise. Dicklyon (talk) 03:55, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Requested move 2[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus. --BDD (talk) 16:19, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

– A title should give some clue to the article's topic, per the precision and recognizability criteria at WP:AT. Relisted. BDD (talk) 23:21, 6 August 2013 (UTC) Dicklyon (talk) 04:27, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Why not R33 World's Fair (New York City Subway car) and R36 World's Fair (New York City Subway car), like almost all the category? Vcohen (talk) 14:28, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Indeed, why not? They were moved from those titles over my opposition, with little support. My impression is that putting New York in there is more precision than required, and that a naturally unambiguous title is better than one with a parenthetical disambiguator, but I wouldn't object if people prefer to go back to that. I hadn't looked at the category. Dicklyon (talk) 16:54, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
Let's make something consistent across all the category, for example R33 World's Fair (subway car), R36 World's Fair (subway car), Deck Roof (subway car), R22 (subway car), R143 (subway car) and so on. Vcohen (talk) 08:08, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. – Dicklyon (talk) 15:27, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. In looking for references, I see that these are just called R33 World's Fair. The purpose of the article is to explain what they are. We call things by their name, and do not for example, call the Chrysler car company, Chrysler automobile company. Apteva (talk) 04:30, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
That's awesome; show us those references, so we can cite them, please. I have not been able to find any but wiki mirrors that call them that. Dicklyon (talk) 04:42, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Already added. See article history. I also found a subway wiki, but did not consider it suitable. Apteva (talk) 01:36, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
You mean the Redbirds ref that you added? It calls them "R33 WF", "R36 WF", and "the World's Fair cars". And it's some guy's personal site; hardly a reliable source for anything, much less a COMMONNAME claim that it doesn't even support. Dicklyon (talk) 03:49, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
