Missing 112N[edit]

There is one type of tram in Warsaw missing - 112N (piece of information at http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konstal_112N). 83.31.124.164 (talk) 18:07, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Move article to "Trams in Warsaw"?[edit]

The title of this article has become rather "non-standard" for English-language Wikipedia. Articles on metropolitan tram systems tend to have a "Trams in [city]" title - for example: Trams in Vienna, Trams in Prague, Trams in Moscow, Trams in Berlin, Trams in Brussels, etc.

I will also note that the current naming scheme for this page is bad, as it implies "Warsaw Tramway" is the "official" accepted name for this system, and it surely is not. (See: WP:COMMONNAME, for example...) It also implies "Tramway" is a proper noun in this context which, again, it isn't.

If there are no objections lodged here, I would like to "move" this article to "Trams in Warsaw" in the near future. If anyone has issues with this, or other comments, please post them here. --IJBall (talk) 21:10, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Warsaw TramwayTrams in Warsaw – Three reasons: 1) the current title of this page seems to violate MOS:PN and WP:COMMONNAME by implying that "Warsaw Tramway" is the primary name by which this system is called in English, and that it is a proper name, neither of which can really be claimed to be true; 2) the evolving naming "standard" for English-language Wikipedia articles on long-standing metropolitan tram systems has recently tended to a "Trams in [city]" – e.g. "Trams in Warsaw" – format; 3) the corresponding Polish-language Wikipedia article on this article translates to "Trams in Warsaw".
