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 at the top of the list, 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 ~~~~. Consider pinging the requester to let them know about the objection.
  • 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.

Uncontroversial technical requests[edit]

  • Küzholüzo Nienü  Kuzholuzo Nienu (currently a redirect to Küzholüzo Nienü) (move · discuss) – WP:COMMONNAME 1 2 3 4 5 6 Dhruv edits (talk) 05:38, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Vocational university  University of applied sciences (currently a redirect to Vocational university) (move · discuss) – much more common term, see Ngram Viewer Espoo (talk) 12:36, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I'm not sure I follow the logic here. "Vocational university" sounds like a much more broad term than "university of applied sciences", and would apply to a university training students for work in lots of different careers, not just limited to science?  — Amakuru (talk) 17:12, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    They're synonyms and "vocational university" is rare. So despite the fancy name, universities of applied sciences specifically provide vocational education (and much less theory than "normal" universities). In other words, "vocational university" would be a better term, but it's not the one used by most of these institutions or most English speakers. You don't seem to understand that "applied sciences" doesn't mean "science" -- it means engineering, technology, business, nursing, architecture, design, industrial design, and other subjects and applied arts, not science. --Espoo (talk) 18:34, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
