Should I move this page to Vic Power, and move the diambig page that is there to Vic Power as he is best known with that name and baseball refrerence has him as Vic Power. Also per WP:MOS, articles should be moved to the best known name. Thanks Jaranda wat's sup 01:10, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
- I would leave it as is. The reasoning is that even though he is better known to the American public as Vic Power, he is better known in his homeland and his countrymen as Victor Pellot. This is one of those rare cases where a person can be better known to the anglo population by one name and to the Hispanic population by another. Tony the Marine 06:54, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
Let's discuss this as civilized people here. This is how I the originator of the artilce see's the situation.
The first paragraph starts with the persons birth name and by which he commonly known in his country "Victor Pellot" and is also followed by "Also known as Vic Power" the name that he used in the majors because he wasn't allowed to use his other surname "Pove" in Canada.
So, what's the big deal? Pellot was only known as "Power" during the time he played in the majors. "Power" was a nickname only used during his baseball playing days and not his true legal surname. He continued to use his real surname after he retired and that is how he is known in his homeland and that is the surname with which he was buried.
Giving you all an example, just because a person is known as "Bozo the Clown" in the United States does not mean that his name automatically is "Bozo The Clown".
Come on let's stop this nonsense now. I believe you all have better things to do in the Pedia. Tony the Marine 21:24, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
- What you say has the ring of truth. However, you'll need to convince Ron and all his collection of sockpuppets. A case has been put in here, if you'd like more info. Sadly, I think it won't end anytime soon. *sigh* --Ebyabe 22:14, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
- I fully agree with you guys. Post your believes that the User mentioned has various sockpuppet acounts and has vandalized various articles here: WP:AN. This will bring the situation to the attention of the Admin community in general. Tony the Marine 05:37, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
- The admin blocked all of them temporarily, for a day or two. I expect he will take more drastic action if the editor continues his behavior. Thank you for your support on this issue also. :) Wahkeenah 06:27, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
- And back to the pleasant side of the subject, I vaguely recall Vic Power as a player during my childhood. Was there ever a better surname for a ballplayer? Unfortunately, he didn't quite live up to his name's reputation, but he was a good ballplayer. Wahkeenah 06:47, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Jos martinez 15:41, 15 May 2007 (UTC)My name is Jose Martinez from New York State. I am a new Wikipedia user. I read about the controversy here regarding "Vic Power". Power, during his playing career was always know as Vic Power - and the name should not be reverted. You also seem to be degrading "Ron Liebman" - who is a prominent baseball researcher for manyyears - long before the arrival of the intrnet. Ron Liebman is correct that that Power was born"Victor Felipe Pellot Pove" and known as "Victor Felipe Pellot Power." That's the version that should stand whenthe page is unprotected. Stop harassing Ron Liebman (who I admire thorugh I do not know him personally). The article should not be continually reverted - it is nonsense. Also, I am not a "sockpuppet" (whatever that is) of Ron Liebman. I just want to see the internet correct - and correct is "vic Power" as is correctly shown everywhere I have looked. 5/15/2007, 11:40 AM
- The SABR people have been asked to review the alleged "Ron Liebman" entries to determine (1) if he's an impostor and/or (2) why he refuses to cooperate with wikipedia's community standards. Since you're a brand new user who went immediately to this page and starting puffing up "Ron Liebman", I'm assuming you're either a sockpuppet or a meatpuppet of same.

wtf is this, eighth grade? “A-less-than-wholesome meaning??” Near as I can figure out from the Alternative Dictionary, it sounds like plotte; “pussy,” or “slut,” but you’d have to check with an Éxpos fan on that. —Wiki Wikardo 06:04, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
- You're damn right, Wiki Wikardo and I did something about it. Tony the Marine (talk) 20:05, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
I remove a link to a website on the free hosting service 50megs.com that was being used as a reliable source. I believe this is not controversial. --Damiens.rf 01:28, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
