Merger discussion for Guanín (bronze)[edit]


An article that you have been involved in editing—Guanín (bronze) —has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Anomalocaris (talk) 21:09, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Policy discussion in progress[edit]

There is a policy discussion in progress at the Manual of Style which affects the capitalization of "Love Like This", a question in which you previously participated. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. — LlywelynII 17:24, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Centralized ENGVAR, DATEVAR, CITEVAR discussion[edit]

This may be of interest, since I think you were involved in previous discussions of the conflicts between these guidelines: Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#Cleaning up and normalizing MOS:ENGVAR, WP:CITEVAR, etc.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  12:17, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Montmagny railway station[edit]

It is redundant to say that Montmagny railway station is a station. "Montmagny railway station" is not a proper name, with "railway station" already being descriptive of what it is. "Rue de la Station" is the proper name of a street, and obviously not a station. All adjoining stations down the the line have the same format in the article lead. Secondarywaltz (talk) 20:37, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Note that Montmagny is not a railway station, but Montmagny railway station is a Via Rail flag stop in Montmagny, Quebec. Secondarywaltz (talk) 22:03, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Is the name of the railway station "Montmagny" or "Montmagny railway station"? Note that the railway station doesn't have to be the Wikipedia primary topic for the title "Montmagny" to have the real-world name "Montmagny". That aside, the "Montmagny railway station is a flag stop" definition format works too. -- JHunterJ (talk)

Fantasy magazine[edit]

Hi -- I just saw your move of Fantasy (1938 magazine) to Fantasy (magazine). I put it there because there's another magazine titled Fantasy that appeared in Britain shortly after WW2. Would you mind reversing the move? I'll create the stub for the other magazine this evening; I've been meaning to do it for years. Thanks. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 14:10, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

It can be moved back (and I'll be happy to do so) after the stub is created. Per WP:PRECISION, we don't prematurely qualify titles that are yet ambiguous on Wikipedia. -- JHunterJ (talk) 14:50, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good; I'll ping you when it's done. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 15:02, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Done. If you would reverse the move I'm happy to fix the dab page. Thanks. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 16:19, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Also done. Thanks! -- JHunterJ (talk) 15:05, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Typhoon Koppu (disambiguation)[edit]

Hey, I noticed you moved that page, saying it is not a disambiguation page. However, the tropical cyclone WikiProject has 703 of these pages, which, as you noted, are technically a set index page. I'm of the opinion that those pages aren't needed in the first place, but that's for a different discussion. Essentially, these pages have a tiny bit more detail than List of historic tropical cyclone names, which is arguably the parent article to these set index articles. As there are 703 of these articles, they should all be consistent, which is why I've started a discussion here, in case you want to provide input. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:48, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I figured there were a bunch of them. I've moved the ones I've come across before, and will continue to do so. Even incremental improvements are welcome, even if that leaves some inconsistency. I'll take a look at the discussion. -- JHunterJ (talk) 17:13, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
But why undo the incremental improvement? Consider moving Typhoon Koppu (disambiguation) back to List of typhoons named Koppu, rather than favoring consistency over correctness. -- JHunterJ (talk) 17:23, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
