Move to SMS Graf Spee[edit]

  • Objection - this proposed move is not listed on Wikipedia:Requested moves. -- Arwel (talk) 02:56, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment - I've removed the move template. If a move is still required, please follow the instructions at WP:RM --Lox (t,c) 14:22, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
This seemed to me to be an uncontroversial and unobstructed move that is permitted. Graf Spee was a person (the WWI admiral), while SMS Graf Spee was a ship named after him. The move seems to be a no-brainer.Cosal 16:26, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
The move is likely to be uncontroversial, but was not unobstructed - I'm going to go ahead and list it now. --Lox (t,c) 17:08, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

In fact, since few people are likely to know Graf Spee's first name, it would also make sense to have the "Graf Spee" page point to the page "Maximilian von Spee".Cosal 16:31, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Add any additional comments
  • Comment While I don't consider this to be a controversial move, an objection was raised previously. I am therefore leaving it open to vote. This move would be to conform to other titles in the Category:World War I battleships of Germany and to follow Wikipedia:Naming conventions (ships) --Lox (t,c) 17:22, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

I was going to add it myself, but it seems Arwel Parry has done it already, great job! --Lox (t,c) 10:24, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
