The result of the move request was: footballer moved to "Winston Reid" and dab page replaced by hatnotes. Favonian (talk) 10:08, 30 June 2013 (UTC)


And content at Winston Reid deleted and replaced with a hatnote. Somebody updated the DAB page. At Winston Reid there are two dabs, the other article about a cricketer. Per monthly page views (6200 v. 50), and Google hits (in which interestingly "Winston Reid cricket" gives many hits about the footballer) this player is the primary target. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 03:45, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Support per Google Book results. In ictu oculi (talk) 07:46, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment: Do we really need a dab page if there are only two? That's what hat notes are for. I would think moving the footballer article to Winston Reid with a hatnote leading to the cricketer article would be sufficient. Specifically, I would suggest deleting Winston Reid, moving Winston Reid (footballer) to Winston Reid, and placing {{about|the footballer|the cricketer|Winston Reid (cricketer)}} at the top of the footballer article.
