Propose rename this template[edit]

Rename Template:Future History(edit talk links history) to

   (A) template: Robert Heinlein's Future History or

   (B) template:Robert A. Heinlein's Future History (it's title as now titled)

   (C) template: RAH's Future History (unambiguous-- mimics typical fancruft discussions, magazines, etc. usage. 'RAH' is/was unique! <g>)

  • As a project template, WT:TFD seems to be the wrong venue. (nom // FrankB)

       Please vote one of: 'Keep as is', 'Move to A' or 'Move to B' or 'Move to C'.

       Move to A --(says the nom). Why: Coming in via the category:Novel series navigational boxes I was led to think this was a generic template for any number of potential series or books in SF. Hence, in line with the general trend in categorization and templates and WP:NAMCON for longer more exact (less time wasting) names, let's fix this one to match it's usage. I can live with any of the three. (C) seems unencyclopedaic, (B) introduces potential error with the 'A.' which given the last name is unnecessary. // FrankB 00:26, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep as is is my first choice (though I made the template, so that makes me biased). If not, I'd go with Move to B because that's the name most of his books are published under and that's the name his wikipedia article is under, so we might as well go with uniformity. mosesroth 05:44, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
As a lifelong fan, I thankyou, the only problem I had with it was looking at links in the cat, the name was vauge—no being in 'RAH think-mode'... no context. // FrankB 12:26, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
"Expanded Universe" needs to be disambiguated to "Expanded Universe (Heinlein). Sorry, I can figure out how to edit the template. Sir Rhosis 02:32, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I took care of it. Thanks for pointing it out. mosesroth 17:27, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
