Requested moves is a process for requesting the retitling (moving) of an article, template, or project page on Wikipedia. (For retitling files, categories and other items, see When not to use this page.)

Please read the article titling policy and the guideline regarding primary topics before moving a page or requesting a page move.

Any autoconfirmed user can use the Move function to perform most moves (see Help:How to move a page). If you have no reason to expect a dispute concerning a move, be bold and move the page. However, it may not always be possible or desirable to do this:

  • Technical reasons may prevent a move: a page may already exist at the target title and require deletion, or the page may be protected from moves. See: § Requesting technical moves.
  • Requests to revert recent, undiscussed, controversial moves may be made at WP:RM/TR. If the new name has not become the stable title, the undiscussed move will be reverted. If the new name has become the stable title, a requested move will be needed to determine the article's proper location.
  • A title may be disputed, and discussion may be necessary to reach consensus: see § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves. The requested moves process is not mandatory, and sometimes an informal discussion at the article's talk page can help reach consensus.
  • Unregistered users and new (not yet autoconfirmed) users are unable to move pages.

Requests are generally processed after seven days. If consensus is reached at or after this time, a reviewer will enact the request. If not, the request may be re-listed to allow more time for consensus to develop, or the discussion closed as "no consensus". See Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions for more details on the process.

Wikipedia:Move review can be used to contest the outcome of a move request as long as all steps are followed. If a discussion on the closer's talk page does not resolve an issue, then a move review will evaluate the close of the move discussion to determine whether or not the contested close was reasonable and consistent with the spirit and intent of common practice, policies, and guidelines.

When not to use this page

Separate processes exist for moving certain types of pages, and for changes other than page moves:

Undiscussed moves

Autoconfirmed editors may move a page without discussion if all of the following apply:

  • No article exists at the new target title;
  • There has been no discussion (especially no recent discussion) about the title of the page that expressed any objection to a new title; and
  • It seems unlikely that anyone would reasonably disagree with the move.

If you disagree with such a move, and the new title has not been in place for a long time, you may revert the move. If you cannot revert the move for technical reasons, then you may request a technical move.

Move wars are disruptive, so if you make a bold move and it is reverted, do not make the move again. Instead, follow the procedures laid out in § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves.

Requesting technical moves

If you are unable to complete a move for technical reasons, you can request technical help below. This is the correct page if you tried to move a page, and you got an error message saying something like "You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reasons:".

  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code filling in pages and reason:
    {{subst:RMassist|current page title|new page title|reason=reason for move}}
    This will automatically insert a bullet and include your signature. Please do not edit the article's talk page.
  • If you object to a proposal listed in the uncontroversial technical requests section, please move the request to the Contested technical requests section, append a note on the request elaborating on why, and sign with ~~~~.
  • If your technical request is contested, or if a contested request is left untouched without reply, create a requested move on the article talk and remove the request from the section here. The fastest and easiest way is to click the "discuss" button at the request, save the talk page, and remove the entry on this page.

Technical requests

Uncontroversial technical requests

Contested technical requests

Requests to revert undiscussed moves

Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves

The discussion process is used for potentially controversial moves. A move is potentially controversial if either of the following applies:

  • there has been any past debate about the best title for the page;
  • someone could reasonably disagree with the move.

Use this process if there is any reason to believe a move would be contested. For technical move requests, such as to correct obvious typographical errors, see Requesting technical moves. The technical moves procedure can also be used for uncontroversial moves when the requested title is occupied by an existing article.

Do not create a new move request when one is already open on the same talk page. Instead, consider contributing to the open discussion if you would like to propose another alternative. Multiple closed move requests may be on the same page, but each should have a unique section heading.

Do not create a move request to rename one or more redirects. Redirects cannot be used as current titles in requested moves.

Requesting a single page move

To request a single page move, click on the "New section" tab of the talk page of the article you want moved, without adding a new subject/header, inserting this code:

{{subst:requested move|NewName|reason=Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. You don't need to add your signature at the end, as this template will do so automatically.}}

Replace NewName with the requested new name of the page (or with a question mark, if you want more than one possible new name to be considered). The template will automatically create the heading "Requested move 19 September 2020" and sign the post for you.

There is no need to edit the article in question. Once the above code is added to the Talk page, a bot will automatically add the following notification at the top of the article:

Note: Unlike other request processes on Wikipedia, such as Requests for comment, nominations need not be neutral. Make your point as best you can; use evidence (such as Google Ngrams and pageview statistics) and refer to applicable policies and guidelines, especially our article titling policy and the guideline on disambiguation and primary topics.

WikiProjects may subscribe to Article alerts to receive RM notifications. For example, Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Article alerts/Requested moves is transcluded to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography. RMCD bot notifies many of the other Wikiprojects listed on the talk page of the article to be moved to invite project members to participate in the RM discussion. Requesters should feel free to notify any other Wikiproject or noticeboard that might be interested in the move request, as long as this notification is neutral.

Single page move on a different talk page

Occasionally, a move request must be made on a talk page other than the talk page of the page to be moved. For example, a request to rename Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources to Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Reviewing and templates would need to take place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation because the talk page of the project page to be moved, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources, is a redirect to that centralized discussion page. In this type of case, the requested move should be made using the following code:

{{subst:requested move|reason=(the reason for the page move goes here).|current1=(present title of page to be renamed)|new1=(proposed title of page)}}

Note that the |1= unnamed parameter is not used, and that the |current1= and |new1= parameters are used similar to multiple page moves described below.

Requesting multiple page moves

A single template may be used to request multiple related moves. On one of the talk pages of the affected articles, create a request and format it as below. A sample request for three page moves is shown here (for two page moves, omit the lines for current3 and new3). For four page moves, add lines for current4 and new4, and so on. There is no technical limit on the number of multiple move requests, but before requesting very large multi-moves, consider whether a naming convention should be changed first. Discuss that change on the talk page for the naming convention, e.g., Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (sportspeople).

To request a multiple page move, edit at the bottom of the talk page of the article you chose for your request, without adding a new header, inserting this code:

{{subst:requested move
| new1 = New title for page 1 with the talk page hosting this discussion
| current2 = Current title of page 2
| new2 = New title for page 2
| current3 = Current title of page 3
| new3 = New title for page 3
| reason = Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. You don't need to add your signature at the end, as this template will do so automatically.}}

For example, to propose moving the articles Wikipedia and Wiki, put this template on Talk:Wikipedia, and replace current2 with Wiki. The discussion for all affected articles is held on the talk page of the article at page 1 (Talk:Wikipedia). Do not sign a request with ~~~~ as the template does this automatically. Do not skip pairs of numbers.

RMCD bot automatically places a notice section on the talk page of the additional pages that are included in your request, advising that the move discussion is in progress, where it is, and that all discussion for all pages included in the request should take place at that one location.

Occasionally the discussions for significant multi-move requests may be hosted on WikiProject talk pages or other pages in Project namespace. For multi-move discussions hosted on a page which is not itself proposed to be moved, specify |current1=Current title of page 1 for the first page to move.

Request all associated moves explicitly

Please list every move that you wish to have made in your request. For example, if you wish to move Cricket (disambiguation) to Cricket because you do not believe the sport is the primary topic for the search term "Cricket", then you actually want to move two pages, both Cricket (disambiguation) and Cricket. Thus you must list proposed titles for each page affected by your request. For example, you might propose:

If a new title is not proposed for the sport, it is more difficult to achieve consensus for a new title for that article. A move request that does not show what to do with the material at its proposed target, such as:

is incomplete. As a malformed move request, it may be subject to early closure on procedural grounds.

Commenting on a requested move

All editors are welcome to contribute to the discussion regarding a requested page move. There are a number of standards that Wikipedians should practice in such discussions:

  • When editors recommend a course of action, they write Support or Oppose in bold text, which is done by surrounding the word with three single quotes on each side, e.g. '''Support'''.
  • Comments or recommendations are added on a new bulleted line (that is, starting with *) and signed by adding ~~~~ to the end. Responses to another editor are threaded and indented using multiple bullets.
  • The article itself should be reviewed before any recommendation is made; do not base recommendations solely on the information supplied by other editors. It may also help to look at the article's edit history. However, please read the earlier comments and recommendations, as well as prior move requests. They may contain relevant arguments and useful information.
  • Vested interests in the article should be disclosed per Wikipedia:Conflict of interest#How to disclose a COI.

When participating, please consider the following:

  • Editors should make themselves familiar with the article titling policy at Wikipedia:Article titles.
  • Other important guidelines that set forth community norms for article titles include Wikipedia:Disambiguation, specific naming conventions, and the manual of style.
  • The debate is not a vote; please do not make recommendations that are not sustained by arguments.
  • Explain how the proposed article title meets or contravenes policy and guidelines rather than merely stating that it does so.
  • Nomination already implies that the nominator supports the name change, and nominators should refrain from repeating this recommendation on a separate bulleted line.[a]
  • Do not make conflicting recommendations. If you change your mind, use strike-through to retract your previous statement by enclosing it between <s> and </s> after the bullets, and de-bold the struck words, as in "• Support Oppose".

Please remember that reasonable editors will sometimes disagree, but that arguments based in policy, guidelines, and evidence have more weight than unsupported statements. When an editor offers an argument that does not explain how the move request is consistent with policies and guidelines, a reminder to engage in constructive, on-topic discussion may be useful. On the other hand, a pattern of responding to requests with groundless opinion, proof by assertion, and ignoring content guidelines may become disruptive. If a pattern of disruptive behavior persists after efforts are made to correct the situation through dialogue, please consider using a dispute resolution process.

Closing a requested move

Any uninvolved editor in good standing may close a move request. Please read the closing instructions for information on how to close a move request. The Simple guide to closing RM discussions details how to actually close a requested move discussion.

Relisting a requested move

Relisting a discussion moves the request out of the backlog up to the current day in order to encourage further input. The decision to relist a discussion is best left to uninvolved experienced editors upon considering, but declining, to close the discussion. In general, discussions should not be relisted more than once before properly closing.[b] Users relisting a debate which has already been relisted, or relisting a debate with a substantial discussion, should write a short explanation on why they did not consider the debate sufficient to close. While there is no consensus forbidding participation in a requested move discussion after relisting it, many editors consider it an inadvisable form of supervote. If you want to relist a discussion and then participate in it, be prepared to explain why you think it was appropriate.

Relisting can be done using {{subst:relisting}}, which automatically includes the relister's signature, and which must be placed at the very end of the initial request after the move requester's signature (and subsequent relisters' signatures). When a discussion has been relisted a bot partially underlines the "Discuss" link in the lists of debates: (Discuss).

When a relisted discussion reaches a resolution, it may be closed at any time according to the closing instructions; there is no required length of time to wait before closing a relisted discussion.

If discussion has become stale, or it seems that discussion would benefit from more input of editors versed in the subject area, consider more widely publicizing the discussion, such as by notifying WikiProjects of the discussion using the template {{RM notification}}. Banners placed at the top of the talk page hosting the move request can often be used to identify WikiProjects suitable for notification.


  1. ^ A nominator making a procedural nomination with which they may not agree is free to add a bulleted line explaining their actual position. Additional detail, such as sources, may also be provided in an additional bullet point if its inclusion in the nomination statement would make the statement unwieldy. Please remember that the entire nomination statement is transcluded into the list on this page.
  2. ^ Despite this, discussions are occasionally relisted more than once.

September 19, 2020

  • (Discuss)PokPok, Malaysia – Clear absence of a primary topic: the disambiguation page has one very prominent upper-case POK entry, and a bunch of pretty obscure Pok ones, but the topic of the current Pok is itself so obscure that's a bit difficult to tell if it's a village, a hamlet or something else. – Uanfala (talk) 20:11, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Colin Haynie → ? – CJ Haynie is currently charged with the murders of four members of his family and other crimes. Per WP:PERP the article shouldn't have been named after him in the first place as "Editors must give serious consideration to not creating an article on an alleged perpetrator when no conviction is yet secured." The article has little biographical info on him. Haynie isn't notable before the deaths or after. Article should be renamed to whatever the WP:COMMONNAME is. Dougal18 (talk) 15:11, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)George Washington BushGeorge Bush (black pioneer) – Recent scholarship has established that George Bush, early pioneer in what became Washington State, did not have a middle name. It is believed that the use of “Washington” as his middle name may be due to confusion with another early Black pioneer named “George Washington”. But these are not the same people. Although many sources continue to refer to George Washington Bush, reliable sources such as, now use the correct name George Bush. A second modern source is "George Bush of Tumwater: Founder of the First American Colony on Puget Sound" Columbia Magazine, Winter 1994-95: Vol. 8, No. 4. Original primary sources that I am aware of always refer to "George Bush". These include the special act of the US Congress (HR 707, adopted January 1855) granting ownership of Mr. Bush's land claim ("Be it enacted... that the claim of George Bush...");a legal notice published by Mr. Bush in the Daily Olympian on April 21, 1855 naming his wife Isabella as executor of their estate; entries in 3 United States census records for 1830, 1850, and 1860 using the name George Bush, an the original headstone for Mr. Bush's grave in Pioneer Cemetery, Tumwater, Washington. In addition, while preparing a proposal for a permanent memorial to George Bush in Washington State, I and my collaborator received direction from multiple scholars of pacific northwest African-American history that the correct name is George Bush. These include Dr. Quintard Taylor of the University of Washington, Dr. Darrel Milner, Portland State University, Jennifer Kilmer, Director of the Washington State Historical Society, and Don Trosper of the Olympia Tumwater Foundation. This proposed change is consistent with Wikipedia’s policy on the naming of articles and disambiguation.

  • (Discuss)Anthony of KyivAnthony of Kiev – Apparently, in the wake of yesterday's change of the modern Kiev page to Kyiv, someone undertook an undiscussed move of this page (among others). I could not reverse it technically, so this is an RM to move it back. There was no consensus in the Kiev/Kyiv discussion on changing historical uses of the term "Kiev" which might render their subjects unrecognizable to readers. St. Anthony of Kiev is one example, a well-known saint, referred to by that name, "Anthony of Kiev" in many English texts. Conversely, I can't find any English references to "Anthony of Kyiv". Until consensus is reached on how to treat historical figures and uses of the term Kiev/Kyiv, these pages should remain where they are (in this case, to "Anthony of Kiev" before the undiscussed move).

  • (Discuss)Au Lapin AgileAu Lapin Agile (Picasso) – This is a not a life and death title improvement, but would be a small help to anyone looking for the subject gaining more Page Views - which is the cabaret Au Lapin Agile itself, not the article getting less page views, i.e. the painting named after it. No strong preference re what to do with the redirect Au Lapin Agile itself. Should it redirect to the cabaret Au Lapin Agile (which is at the somewhat odd Lapin Agile perhaps influenced by Steve Martin?) or should it redirect to the painting? Would lean to redirecting Au Lapin Agile to the cabaret Au Lapin Agile. But either way addition of (Picasso) or (painting) to the painting is still an improvement in article title clarity and disambiguation for readers. To explain why (Picasso) not (painting); because the cabaret itself according to the article takes its name from an earlier sign painting Le Lapin Agile by André Gille and (painting) might confuse further.

  • (Discuss)Époisses de BourgogneÉpoisses (cheese) – The cheese is listed by the French government (AOC and AOP) as "Époisses", is known as such in France, the French wikipedia page is "Époisses (fromage)", and the great majority of Google results are simply "Époisses" tout court. "Époisses de Bourgogne" is used in a small minority of sources, chiefly British commercial sites.

  • (Discuss)People's Union (Belgium)Volksunie – I am quite surprised that this has not been discussed before. The rationale for having English-language names for Belgian political parties has generally been their bilingual nature which is not an issue here. Volksunie is clearly the WP:COMMONNAME and is also a WP:NATURALDIS of the title. —Brigade Piron (talk) 08:06, 10 September 2020 (UTC) Relisting.  — Amakuru (talk) 13:06, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Sexual racismRacial sexual preference – This article survived the AfD at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sexual racism, so deletion is off the table for now. But there were substantial concerns raised about the title, thus this RM. The proposed title communicates clearly and neutrally what the article is about. Whether or not racial sexual preferences are a form of racism is a controversial topic both among scholars and the general public, so I don't think we should be taking a stance on that issue in Wikipedia's voice when an alternative title that doesn't require us to do so is available. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 02:34, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)ASXASX (disambiguation) – Pretty sure that the ASX, as in the national stock exchange of Australia that holds over US$1.33 trillion in securities, is quite clearly the primary topic for "ASX". ItsPugle (please ping on reply) 01:11, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Arabic cultureArab culture – The adjective form of the noun "Arab(s)" is "Arab". "Arabic" in English technically refers to the Arabic language, it's not necessarily a synonym for "Arab" as an ethnicity, as a pan-regional nationality, etc. (See also a useful explanation here.) Popularly, "Arabic" and "Arab" (and even "Arabian") are sometimes confused by English speakers (which is why Google is a not a good indication of proper terminology here) but English scholarly sources, especially in social sciences, tend to prefer the term "Arab". E.g. when I search "Arabic culture" in the catalogue of my university library the main sources that show up are all linguistics-related works; whereas "Arab culture" turns up results on a variety of topics using this term. A more accessible, but not quite as stark, example is to search for "Arab culture" versus "Arabic culture" on Google Scholar: the former turns up 37,000 results whereas the latter turns up 19,000. There are of course a lot of subtopics here that are closely relevant to the Arabic language and where "Arabic" can be more appropriate, like literature, media and music (since it's sung in Arabic), which is why "Arabic culture" can still come up. But other topics like sports, dance, art, and architecture are not really appropriately called "Arabic". "Arab" culture is thus better as a general term. Even in this article, some subsection titles use "Arab" and "Arab" is used as adjective at various points. Lastly, it's not a radically different name change anyways, so I don't think it'll create other problems along the way (or certainly not any new problems). Robert Prazeres (talk) 23:24, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Luis García (footballer, born 1972)Luis García Plaza – I believe we should move it because it follows WP:COMMONNAME criteria. It is recognizable and natural, as people will tend to search for Luis García Plaza rather than Luís García (footballer born 1972) or Luis García and then try and find it among all the other footballers born in different dates. Thus, making it a more precise article title. Furthermore, most of our sister pages already use Luis García Plaza as article title (e.g. Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Indinesian, etc) and the reason behind it is because media refer to him by his full name, Luis García Plaza. SrEragon (talk) 19:35, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)FaçadeFacade – Should the article stay at its current title or should it be moved to Facade? Please state your reason for choosing "Facade" (support) or "Façade" (oppose) below. It seems that while PBS thinks that the move from "Facade" to "Façade" is controversial and thus the article's title should be "Facade", Firejuggler86 thinks that the opposite move from "Façade" to "Facade" is controversial and thus the article's title should be "Façade". Clearly, PBS and Firejuggler86 have different opinions on which move is the "controversial" one, so now dicussion is needed. Had the article been first moved to "Facade" and then an RM from "Facade" to "Façade" started instead, then all the "supports" would become "opposes" and vice versa.

  • (Discuss)Hoka (disambiguation)HokaHoka currently redirects to Red codling as a native-language name for the fish. I do not think usage of "hoka" to refer to the fish has enough long-term significance, particularly in an English-language context, to outweigh the much higher usage of Hoka One One. feminist (talk) 12:52, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Israel–United Arab Emirates agreementIsrael–United Arab Emirates normalization agreementWP:PRECISE Simply put, agreement is very vague. While today it is clear that the Israel–United Arab Emirates agreement refers to this specific one, over time the name becomes less and less clear. We should seek precision in defining what actually happened, and what actually happened was the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Also (partially) per WP:COMMONAME. See CNN, NBC, Reuters, Washington Post, and New York Times. The sources are far from unanimous, and there are plenty that say peace agreement or agreement, but this is just the most accurate and precise name. Since the other one was closed on formalities, I would suggest that the closer note the opinions of those on the previous move discussion when closing this.

  • (Discuss)William MossWilliam Moss (Australian politician) – I find it implausible that the Australian politician who lead a relatively minor political party is the primary topic of this common combination of given name and surname. I propose to move the disambiguation page, Bill Moss to the title, expand it to cover "William or Bill" names, and add this title and the other two currently perched in the hatnote of this page. BD2412 T 00:58, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)2020–21 NCAA Division I FBS football season2020 NCAA Division I FBS football season – For now, let's revert back to the standard date formatting used on the other NCAA Division I FBS football season articles, based on WP:CRYSTAL grounds. As I am proposing this, the Big Ten Conference announced a few hours ago that they have reversed course and are now looking into starting play next month. None of those other conferences (Mid-American, Mountain West, Pac-12, etc. ) have scheduled any spring 2021 games yet AFAIK. Currently they are only labeled in the article subheader as "possibility of playing in the spring", now "will". There is no guarantee that COVID-19 cases will subside enough in the Spring, and there could be a chance that they could instead reverse course like the Big Ten and play in the Fall too. And they could still take a playbook from the 2020 Summer Olympics and still call it the "2020 season" even if they are playing in 2021. Thus "2020–21" in the current title is premature until Spring 2021 NCAA Division I FBS games are actually scheduled (like some conferences have already done in the 2020–21 NCAA Division I FCS football season).

  • (Discuss)PMD TechnologiesPmdtechnologies – The situation has changed some since 2016. WP:COMMONNAME suggests the page should be moved. A "Google" search found about twice as many results for pmdtechnologies ([3] 76,000+ results) than "PMD Technologies" ([4], 30,000+ results) even after subtracting out several terms likely to pollute the results. When I restricted the results to the past year, the numbers were a bit closer, over 130 for "pdmtechnologies" but just under 100 for "PMD Technologies." While both sets of results were dominated by unreliable or first-party sources, the sheer ratio strongly suggests that a move is appropriate. Had it not been for the 2016 discussion, I wouldn've just boldly moved the page. As an aside, the difficulty in finding the reliable sources among the search results would make it harder to support this company's notability (see WP:CORP) but that's not what this discussion is about. @SMcCandlish, Yodin, and Amakuru: You were involved in the previous discussion or page move back in 2016.

  • (Discuss)Synod of Bishops in the Catholic ChurchThe Synod of Bishops (Catholic Church) – As discussed in the section above, this move is requested to remove an existing ambiguity in the title. The definite article "The" is added to makes it clear that the article deals with a specific synod: "The Synod of Bishops" described under that name in Canons 342-347 of the Code of Canon Law. Replacing the phrase "in the Catholic Church" with a parenthetical "(Catholic Church)" further clarifies that it does not deal with all synods in the Catholic Church or with the concept of synodality in the Catholic church.

And on another side note, none of the above links justify the recent moving of this page to French accenting.

  • (Discuss)Walter Elliot (Scottish politician)Walter Elliot (Unionist Party politician) – All these MPs belong to the Unionist Party, a party expressly committed to the principle that Scotland is British. It is therefore not proper to describe them as "Scottish" in the first instance. These were people whose preferred or primary political identity will have been British. "Scottish Unionist" is not their party's name, but the name of a completely different party, the Scottish Unionist Party (1986). The designation "Scottish Unionist" MP is thus very wrong and actively misleading, while simply "Scottish politician" misses the point altogether and would surely have the articles' subjects spinning their graves in exactly the same way as if we started calling Nicola Sturgeon or Sean Connery British. The fact that there are other unionist parties (e.g. Liberal Unionist Party) that had MPs is irrelevant; none of these parties was called the "Unionist Party" and none had MPs of the same name, so not further disambiguation (i.e. the interpolation of "Scottish" into the articles' names) is necessary or helpful. More to the point, the sources of the articles do not describe them as "Scottish" so that label is utterly original research. We know however, that they were in British politics, were British citizens, and that they campaigned for the unified Britishness of Great Britain and/or the British Isles. Other reasonable suggestions are welcome (John Mackie, for instance, could be described as "MP for Perth" or "Perth MP" or whatever).

  • (Discuss)SubsetSubset and superset – Another option would be Subsets and supersets (plural). This article covers both subsets and supersets. These two concepts are inseparable, and mutually dependent: there cannot be subsets if there aren't supersets. It is therefore illogical to have one term in the title, but not its counterpart. This page was actually called Subset and superset for a short time back in 2014. On 27 November 2014, the page was moved. The next month, it was moved back, but the rationale given in the log didn't make much sense to me. Cheers, Manifestation (talk) 19:56, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)William IV of the United KingdomWilliam IV – All pages of monarchs of the United Kingdom have been moved to suppress the expression "of the United Kingdom" from their titles. I suggest that we do not exclude William IV from this recent trend and do the same for his page. The rationale behind this particular suggestion is consistency and cohesion, based on aforementioned reasoning, as well as recognizing that he is indeed the most notorious of all William IVs.

  • (Discuss)Apple (disambiguation)Apple – I see that the disambiguation page are more likely have two primary topics instead just one primary topic per WP:DETERMINEPRIMARY, one topic regarding the fruit and another regarding the $1 billion market cap technology company. In educational purpose or scholar, Apple is a fruit and should be maintained for long-term significance and educational value. But in modern/contemporary times, anyone who think the Apple are more likely think the company with more than $1 billion market capitalization which is one of the largest and most well-known company in the world. The company's name derived from fruit name, but because I see it at the pageviews (Apple inc. included), there is WP:NOPRIMARYTOPIC because there is a presence of the company which also claimed as primary topic in contemporary times while the fruit with the same name as the company derived from is essentially a primary topic for long-term significance. The Google search also refers word "Apple" as primarily the company, not the fruit, which is similar to how Kiwi (bird) vs Kiwifruit (when searching "Kiwi" it is more likely refer as the fruit). The dab page should be repaired to have two primary topics. (talk) 21:09, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Titanic (1997 film)Titanic (film) – This is clearly the primary topic among all films named Titanic given its Best Picture win and former position as the highest grossing film. It’s also 13 23 years old, so “recentism” shouldn’t be an issue. This move would is supported by WP:CONCISE and is explicitly allowed by WP:INCDAB (per this 2019 RFC). I should also point to WP:LOCALCONSENSUS, “Consensus among a limited group of editors, at one place and time, cannot override community consensus on a wider scale. For instance, unless they can convince the broader community that such action is right, participants in a WikiProject cannot decide that some generally accepted policy or guideline does not apply to articles within its scope.” In other words, whether or not incomplete disambiguation is allowed is not up for debate here. -- Calidum 19:40, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

This is a recently edited redirect that currently directs to Lists of operas ie, it's kind of going spare as that's not a great redirect. The challenge in naming this page is how to describe it in accordance with its inclusion criteria.

  • (Discuss)1934 Bihar earthquake1934 Nepal–India earthquake – The earthquake originated in Nepal and historically is of no lesser significance to Nepal than it is to India. The current title does not accurately reflect the appropriate scope of this article. Sources from the Indian perspective call it a Bihar earthquake or the great earthquake of 1934 and those from Nepal call it the great earthquake of 1934 (having no need to narrow it down to a particular region in the country). I am suggesting Nepal-India to keep the two sides of the dashes equal and because it originated in Nepal. But my intent is to have a proper discussion on how to fix the problem of the article title not reflecting its scope. And I reckon India-Nepal, Nepal-Bihar or Bihar-Nepal could be valid options too.
