Proposed merger[edit]

I agree with the proposed merger into swear box – they're the same thing. I think swear box should be the primary title, with a redirect from swear jar: although the meaning of swear jar is obvious, I'd never heard that term before today (unlike swear box, which I've known for years and which I think is the usual one in UK).

What about google hits? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 11:29, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Merged: uncontroversial proposal. I have merged swear box into swear jar as at the time of writing swear jar had been visited 780 times in the last 30 days and swear box had only been viewed 186 time in the last 30 days. Ebonelm (talk) 17:40, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Hmmmmm, not exactly by the book, but it would probably have ended up that way. @Phoebe:, @Narky Blert:, @Sealman:, are you all okay with this? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:46, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
@Anna Frodesiak: Fine by me, the merger is the biggie not the name of the primary article. Narky Blert (talk) 00:20, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Fine with me. I think that "swear jar" is less ambiguous, but either term is OK. Reify-tech (talk) 00:28, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough. I agree. And of course it was a good faith redirect. I just thought that in fairness, I ought to let the involved parties know. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:39, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! And fine with me; I was just trying to clean up old merge proposals :) (perhaps a future section could be about different terminology in different parts of the world!) -- phoebe / (talk to me) 19:57, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
