Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway[edit]

Moving Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad from the title it's had since 2004 seems a poor fit for the technical requests process. There's plenty of reason to doubt that the new article title is the correct one (e.g. [1]) and this should have been a full move request. Mackensen (talk) 14:26, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

A Nightmare on Elm Street (disambiguation)[edit]

You split the page from List of A Nightmare on Elm Street media. However, the page is deleted. Shall I request undeletion at WP:REFUND, or what else? Why deletion? --George Ho (talk) 01:41, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Happy New Year, Anthony Appleyard![edit]

   Send New Year cheer by adding {{subst:Happy New Year fireworks}} to user talk pages.


  • Thanks, Anthony Talk:Swatting_(hoaxing), if I had seen the ping I would have quite happily reverted the move. Would it be possible for you to close and do so? In ictu oculi (talk) 11:31, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @In ictu oculi: I would prefer to let this move discussion run the usual term for move discussions, which is a week. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 11:39, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Okay, but I would really prefer it be closed and reverted if at all possible. In ictu oculi (talk) 14:38, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

I was told to be bold....pfft[edit]

Trophy.png Deleter with no imagination
Kiss my ass for deleting a page to further education and creativity. "Be Bold"....pfft....luke warm and watered down at best.... I am referring to my wild ride page that was deleted...It is labeled below and hasn't been all that since you deleted it...How is your memory? Or is it just a mass delete button you click for all speedy requests...and you don't even take the time to look....either way....

no...i get imagination...why make it easier for people to learn...and have fun... and when you actually think about the power behind the cross referencing if a few walls were knocked down...the power...feel free to live in a box though. Ftpftw1981 (talk) 14:09, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Saraiki dialect RM Closure request[edit]

Saraiki, This disambiguation page lists articles associated with the title Saraiki which are; Saraiki dialect, Saraiki people, Saraiki culture, Saraiki dialect (Sindhi), Saraiki literature, Saraiki music, Saraiki diaspora, Saraikistan Movement and List of Saraiki tribes. Move to Saraiki from Saraiki dialect will be a very silly decision.

Majority of verifiable Sources are saying Saraiki is a dialect. [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7][8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16], [17], [18] [19] Every language study put Saraiki under Lahnda (Western Punjabi). The Indo-Aryan Languages By Colin P. Masica 1993 Page 289. Lahnda dialects (including Siraiki)[20] ,Page 343. Saraiki and other Lahnda dialects, Page 247. Lahnda (Siraiki) which lacks a Layer 1 instrumental [21] , Page 23. In Pakistan several erstwhile dialects (Siraiki & Dogri) are said to be agitating for language status[22] Page 518. Lahnda/Lahndi (see also Siraiki) [23]

Linguistic survey of India by George Abraham Grierson 1903-1928, Volume 8. Lahnda or Westren Punjabi [24] , The Indo-Aryan Languages By Danesh Jain, George Cardona Panjabi section written by Christopher Shackle in 2007. Page 588, All these structural features of MSP ( Modern Standard Punjabi)...occur in western Saraiki and other western dialects. [25] . Page 603. The MSP (Modern Standard Punjabi) declension ....Other varieties have similar pattern...Dogri...Shahpuri...Pothohari...Hindko and Saraiki ... [26], Page 584. Map 16.1 Punjabi area map.............Saraiki ........ [27]

Move to Saraiki Language from Saraiki dialect will be even worse decision . If you analyse LanguageXpert sock file and IP sock series 39..... Apparently uninvolved users Kautilya3 and Kashmiri are actually involved users. Both see Saraiki dialect as a revenge plate forum against LX. They had verbal abuses with each other at some point in time. so Biased voting without reading the sources have zero weight. Only sources should decide the title. Sources say it is a dialect/variant. I request you for closure of third move request (Forum Shopping) in a raw. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:25, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Help on Restoring Savaari's Company Page[edit]

Hello there,

I write to you about the warnings posed and the subsequent take down of our company page- and here

We were provided a warning indicating that the article has sections that are classified as promotional content. Can you please let us know the exact sections and also the next steps to restore the page back?

Appreciate your help. Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ananddorairaj (talkcontribs) 07:31, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

  • @Ananddorairaj: Page Savaari (company) is merely a redirect to was tagged at 05:02, 4 January 2017 by User:SwisterTwister and at 06:16, 4 January 2017 was speedy-deleted; much of it is clearly a standard typical advertisement for a car hire service and not what Wikipedia is for; see Wikipedia:Spam. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 12:45, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Anthony Appleyard: Sure- I agree. What we intended was to create a neutral company page that does not include any promotional content and complies with Wikipedia guidelines. Would it be possible to restore the page with the necessary edits made? Any guidance to do so is appreciated. Thanks 17:43, 5 January 2017 User:Ananddorairaj
  • @Ananddorairaj: It also depends on whether Savaari is particularly noteworthy, or merely an ordinary car hire firm. There are very many car hire firms. Wikipedia is not a trade directory. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 23:45, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Anthony Appleyard: Oh absolutely. Savaari is India's largest outstation chauffeur driven car rental company, with operations in 62 cities. Without divulging too much publicly, I could privately point you to competitors who are way smaller in scale who already have a company page. Regards
  • @Anthony Appleyard: Hi there, I wanted to follow up on this pending thread. Looking forward to your guidance. Regards 07:25, 10 January 2017‎ User:

Celeste Brown disambiguation page[edit]


Please take a look at the latest comment added by User:BIL on Talk:UTC+14:00:24. There was no Anchorage when US bought Alaska. It's becoming clear that this whole article is a hoax. HkCaGu (talk) 19:41, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Sunderland station[edit]

Hi, I reverted your move of Sunderland station to Sunderland railway station, I realise that it was requested by Comes Dunelmensis (talk · contribs) - a name which I don't recall encountering before. I reverted because the name lacking the word "railway" is in line with Wikipedia:Naming conventions (UK stations), as the station has both "mainline" rail (National Rail) and Tyne and Wear Metro, so counts as "any two or more of the above". --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 15:05, 6 January 2017 (UTC)


Belize national anthem[edit]

  • Hi Anthony, I noticed that you recently moved Land of the Free to Belize national anthem (per Talk:Belize national anthem). I was wondering if you would consider moving it to Land of the Free (anthem) instead, as the move request originally suggested. For national anthems, the naming convention is to use the name of the anthem or add "(anthem)" if it needs disambiguation. All of the anthems that are titled "Something National Anthem" are titled that because that is the actual name of the song. "Land of the Free" was a song before it became the national anthem of Belize and it seems confusing to title it "Belize national anthem", as that is more of a description than a title. It would be like moving Bald Eagle to National bird of the United States. What do you think? Kaldari (talk) 23:21, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Kaldari: See discussion in Talk:Belize national anthem#Requested move 26 December 2016. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 23:24, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes, that is the discussion I referenced above. You will see that it proposes moving Land of the Free to Land of the Free (anthem), which is not the move that you performed. I'm just asking you to implement the move that was requested. Kaldari (talk) 23:54, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Kaldari: But see there User:In ictu oculi's opinion that most people outside Belize hearing of a song "Land of the Free" are going to think of "Star Spangled Banner". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:39, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
    • That's why both are mentioned at Land of the Free (the disambiguation page). Frankly, I think it's debatable whether or not the article should have been moved at all (although I was too late to weigh in on the discussion), but to go even further and not even use the anthem's name in the title at all (just because it shares a line with the "The Star-Spangled Banner") seems a bridge too far. "The Star-Spangled Banner" has never been known as "Land of the Free". Just because a title brings something else to mind doesn't make it the COMMONNAME. Nor does one person's opinion constitute the consensus of a move discussion. I realize you were just trying to exercise your best judgement, but I don't think it was the best solution. Kaldari (talk) 08:01, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Sooraj Pancholi (actor)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Sooraj Pancholi (actor) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Out of the box[edit]

  • You recently moved Out of the box (disambiguation) to Out of the box as a technical request. You probably did not notice that I had moved it to "Contested Requests", noting that it was not uncontroversial. The edit history and talk page, which is now lost (or at least I can't find it), showed prior deletion and merge requests as well as a reversion about a year ago when someone else tried to do this. Please undo this move and restore the edit history. If brought to RM for discussion, I intend to oppose it. Thank you. Station1 (talk) 17:56, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Station1: The old Out of the box is now at Thinking out of the box, and it now redirects to Thinking outside the box. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:53, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
    • "Out of the box" and "thinking outside the box" are two totally different and unrelated concepts. The talk page and article edit history make no sense under that title. As I said, please undo the moves, which I clearly noted are contested. Station1 (talk) 23:33, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Station1: Yes check.svg Done, but the definition of "out of the box" shown at this edit looks to me much like the current definition of Thinking outside the box. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:21, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

What are you doing? Please move it back asap. We have the Deaths in YYYY page and create month sub pages after the month is complete. EvergreenFir (talk) 08:57, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Thank you and understood! Btw, had this typed up but edit conflict: : See the fifth bullet point of the FAQ if you don't believe me. Talk:Deaths in January 2017/FAQ EvergreenFir (talk) 09:02, 9 January 2017 (UTC)


  • I intended to add this article ( i created ), so that i can tag the school under "list of schools in banglore" page. I have seen, there are lot of articles about different schools in banglore, i just intended to add one for SAMVED SCHOOL. hence created that article, please let me know, why this is not permitted.

Moving pages that are contested[edit]

  • I thought that if a page's move was contested at WP:RM/TR it could not be moved and then had to be discussed? Don't Leave (Snakehips and MØ song) is simply not notable at this stage, so I don't know why it was moved. I don't know why administrators seem to be encouraging someone's sandbox to become part of a page's history, or the refusal of the user Love on the Brain to copypaste what they have created, which seems to be enough for most other users, over a redirect. It might not be much for you to move it, but I don't think this kind of practice (erasing the fact that somebody created a redirect and replacing with an article that is not yet notable) is very honest or a very good way to do things on Wikipedia. Ss112 23:15, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Ss112: I have reverted this move. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 23:23, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
