The Signpost: 18 November 2015[edit]

Please move article back[edit]

I explained in the first edit that created the page that the lower caps was intended to distinguish the actual "downtown (generic descriptor) Miami" from the Downtown Miami (area official name) which is an agglomeration of about five neighborhoods now generally referred to as "Downtown Miami." It is a unique case, you can see the DDA maps etc. to see what I mean. When you're in Brickell and you say you're going "downtown", everyone knows that mean the CBD, the "old downtown". In this case, the reason I added "downtown" at all to the disambiguation parenthesis was because this is not to denote the city for disambiguation purposes, it is to give the alternate name of the area. I know this is all confusing and it's Miami so the majority of quality English editors don't care about it, but that's how it is. None of this is unsourced or original research. Thank you.

@B137: a few points, all of which I will leave for you to deal with.
  1. If you're going to use that two-word descriptor as a disambiguation term, it should match the capitalization of the article. Anything else is just confusing and wrong.
  2. If it is instead supposed to be an alternate name, it should not be in parentheses as a disambiguation term. Instead, that alternate name should be a redirect to whatever the article is titled. If removing that leaves an ambiguous title, you'll need to find a better/different disambiguation term.
  3. Whatever the article is ultimately titled, you need not ask me to undo my actions as it requires/required no special permissions to do in the first place, nor to revert.
However, the title you picked was not acceptable in terms of capitalization based on our policies and principles for article titles. Imzadi 1979  22:17, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Not true @#3, and this may be because I lost a lot of permissions during a name change, but I can not move over redirects, and because it is not a normal edit when I click undo it says "this has already been undone". B137 (talk) 23:20, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
@B137: any regular editor can move over a redirect if that redirect only has had a single edit; there is no special permission related to that. Once there's a second edit made, it needs to be deleted by an admin first. However, your original name doesn't fit with our policies and principles related to article titles. Maybe the new one doesn't fit perfectly either, so then the solution is to find something that fits better with everything. Maybe that's just Central Business District (Miami), or maybe it's something else. Imzadi 1979  23:50, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
It's probably the latter. I was just trying to make the page match the unique scenario in Miami. in fact, the CBD is not even the financial district in this case, Brickell is the Brickell Financial District. It's odd all around, just like Miami's 35 sq mi pop 400,000 deceptively small size for the size of it's brand name. B137 (talk) 00:29, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
I suggest a move to Central Business District (Miami) B137 (talk) 01:07, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
