Talk:State of Maranhão (colonial)
|WikiProject Portugal||(Rated Start-class)|

This article was named State of Maranhão, but there is also a current entity called State of Maranhão, so this is an ambiguous name. Therefore State of Maranhão = Maranhão (state) = Maranhão State was made a disambiguation page, along the lines of Amazonas State.
Furthermore the convention for entities in South America is to have "(state)" as disambiguator. Rio de Janeiro (state), São Paulo (state), Miranda (state) or if this is not sufficient to add a further term, e.g. Amazonas (Brazilian state). Along these lines "Maranhão (former state)" was choosen as the new article name. LatinoLatino (talk) 17:09, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
- You chose it, it was not chosen by consensus by request. What you have done is not wiki policy. I will continue to revert you until you do this the right way, Cristiano Tomás (talk) 18:29, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
- What YOU have done is not wiki policy. YOU did chose an ambiguous name. And now YOU come and blame others. You are welcome to edit Latin America articles, but YOU like ME better follow WP policies. Also REVERTING with the only reason "no request" is NOT in line with WP policies. So come down from your colonial horse and work in cooperation. LatinoLatino (talk) 18:41, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
History - capital
In the history section there are two apparently contradictory statements:
- After the 1670s Belem became the operational base of the governors and it was formally designated the state capital in 1737.
- In 1751 ... its capital was moved from São Luís to Belém.
