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 our article titling policy and our 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, such as when a page may already exist at the target title and require deletion, or if the page to be moved is protected from moves. In these circumstances, administrator help is required to move a page, see below: § Requesting technical moves.
  • A title may be subject to dispute, and discussion may be necessary in order to reach consensus, see below: § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves. It is not always necessary to use the requested move process in these circumstances: one option is to start an informal discussion at the article's talk page instead.
  • Unregistered users and new (not yet autoconfirmed) users do not have the capability to move pages. They must request moves using this process.

Most move requests are processed by a group of regular contributors who are familiar with Wikipedia naming conventions, non-binding precedents, and page moving procedures. Requests are generally processed after seven days, although backlogs often develop. If there is a clear consensus after this time, or if the requested move is uncontroversial or technical, the request will be closed and acted upon. If not, the closer may choose to re-list the request to allow more time for consensus to develop, or close it as "no consensus". For the processes involved in closing requests, performing moves, and cleaning up after moves, see Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions. For a list of all processed moves, see Special:Log/move.

The Move review process can be used to contest a move. It is designed to evaluate a contested close of a move discussion to determine if the close was reasonable, or whether it was inconsistent with the spirit and intent of Wikipedia common practice, policies, or guidelines.

When not to use this page[edit]


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

Undiscussed moves[edit]


Anyone can be bold and move a page without discussing it first and gaining an explicit consensus on the talk page. If you consider such a move to be controversial, 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[edit]


The discussion process is used for potentially controversial moves. If any of the following apply to a desired move, treat it as potentially controversial:

  • There is an existing article (not just a redirect) at the target title;
  • There has been any past debate about the best title for the page;
  • Someone could reasonably disagree with the move.

If a desired move is uncontroversial and technical in nature (e.g. spelling), please feel free to move the page yourself. If the page has recently been moved without discussion, you may revert the move and initiate a discussion on its talk page. In either case, if you are unable to complete the move, request it below.

  • To list a technical request, go to the bottom of this section that you are reading right now; edit the subsection Uncontroversial technical requests; insert the following code at the top:
{{subst:RMassist|<!--old page name, without brackets-->|<!--requested name, without brackets-->|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 it to the Contested technical requests section.

  • Alternatively, if the only obstacle to an uncontroversial move is another page in the way, you can ask for the deletion of the other page. This may apply, for example, if the other page is currently a redirect to the article to be moved, a redirect with no incoming links, or an unnecessary disambiguation page with a minor edit history. To request the other page be deleted, add the following code to the top of the page that is in the way:
{{db-move|<!--page to be moved here-->|<!--reason for move-->}}
This will list the undesired page for deletion under criterion for speedy deletion G6. If the page is a redirect, place the code above the redirection. For a list of articles being considered for uncontroversial speedy deletion, see Category:Candidates for uncontroversial speedy deletion.

Uncontroversial technical requests[edit]

Contested technical requests[edit]

Requests to revert undiscussed moves[edit]

Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves[edit]


Use this process if there is any reason to believe a move would be contested. For technical move requests (e.g. spelling and capitalization fixes), see Requesting technical moves.

Do not put more than one open move request on the same article talk page, because this is not supported by the bot that handles updates to this page. Multiple closed move requests may be on the same page, but each should have a unique section heading.

Requesting a single page move[edit]

(To propose moving more than one page—for example, moving a disambiguation page in order to move another page to that title—see "Requesting multiple page moves" below.)

To request a single page move, edit at the bottom of the talk page of the article you want moved, using this format:

{{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 present Google Books or Google News Archive results before providing other web results. Do not sign this.}}

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). Leave the Subject/headline blank, as the template automatically creates the heading "Requested move 04 October 2015". Do not sign a request with ~~~~ as the template does this automatically. The template must be substituted.

Use the code |talk=yes to add separate locations for survey and discussion.

Note: Unlike certain other request processes on Wikipedia, nominations need not be neutral. Strive to make your point as best you can; use evidence (such as Ngrams and pageview statistics) and make reference to applicable policies and guidelines, especially our article titling policy and the guideline on disambiguation and primary topic. After the nomination has been made, nominators may nevertheless add a separate bullet point to support their nomination, but should add "as nominator" (for example,  * '''Rename, as nominator''': ...). Most nominators, however, simply allow the nomination itself to indicate what their opinion is. Nominators may also participate in the discussion along with everyone else, and often should.

RMCD bot notifies any Wikiproject 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.

Requesting multiple page moves[edit]

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).

{{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 default to Google Books or Google News Archive before providing any web results. Do not sign this.}}

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.

Closing instructions[edit]

Any uninvolved editor in good standing may close a move request, and more closers of move requests are needed, but there are certain procedures that need to be followed. Please read our closing instructions for information on how to close a move request.


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. Preferably, a reason for the relist will be given. When a relisted discussion reaches a resolution, it may be closed at any time according to the closing instructions.

To relist a move request discussion, simply type <small>'''Relisted'''. ~~~~</small> after the initial request. This can also be done by using {{subst:Relisting}}, which signs the relisting automatically. The RMCD bot uses the new timestamp to relist the entry on this page.

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. One option is to notify relevant WikiProjects of the discussion using the template {{RM notification}}. Applicable WikiProjects can often be determined by means of the banners placed at the top of the talk page hosting the move request.

Current discussions[edit]

This section lists all requests filed or identified as potentially controversial which are currently under discussion.

This list is also available in a page-link-first format.

  • (Discuss)Philippine Constitutional Convention election, 1970Philippine Constitutional Convention, 1970 – Ideally there would be two articles, one about the election and one about the convention itself, but we do not live in an ideal world. There is only one article, this one, and it contains limited information related to the election itself. Most of the article involves the convention (including information that I added today :) ) or is a list of the delegates -- winners of the election -- which is just as applicable to a Convention article. An election article should have information about the non-winning candidates, deadlines and vote process, campaign tactics and issues, controversies, etc. -- in other words more than a list of delegates to the convention. Therefore I propose that this article be moved to the "Philippine Constitutional Convention, 1970" with a subsection specifically about the election with redirects pointing to that subsection, effectively combining the two topics (election and convention) into one article. The convention itself is more significant than the election since it was in the midst of the convention that martial law was declared and since the constitution that came out of the convention and the ratification process solidified and legitimatized Marcos's rule. When and if the election subsection has grown big enough then it can be spun off as a separate article. The page is protected and so I cannot WP:Be Bold and do the move and redirect myself.

October 3, 2015[edit]

  • (Discuss)Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran song)Thinking Out Loud – When I made the same request last year, this song wasn't really that big a deal. Now, however, it's a huge deal: it's become one of only 7 songs to go 3x Platinum this century and has also become one of the best-selling songs of all time (in addition to half a billion Spotify streams, more than any other song), so it definitely isn't going to be forgotten any time soon. Judging by the length of the pages of the other two albums, as well as a lack of chart positions and references, I seriously doubt anyone outside of Japan will be even vaguely familiar with the Bonnie Pink album, and I also seriously doubt anyone who isn't a Frank Gambale fan will know anything about his album either. Neither of these albums even have even a fraction of the notability of the Ed Sheeran song and the same can also be said about the other topics on the disambiguation page which do or don't have articles - and to be perfectly honest, I am very doubtful that any of them will ever be anywhere near as notable as this song. All these reasons explain why the Ed Sheeran song deserves to be the primary topic. Unreal7 (talk) 22:59, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Crytek UKFree Radical Design – The company no longer exists in any form, and as such I believe there is no need to name the article after the company's "current" name. Also the company was known longer as Free Radical Design than Crytek UK (9 years vs 5½ years). They developed all their most notable games as Free Radical. In none of the games they developed as Crytek UK they were the primary development studio, all of them were co-productions. Mika1h (talk) 09:13, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

October 2, 2015[edit]

  • (Discuss)Europa (moon)Europa – Europa the moon is FAR more of the primary topic than anything else named Europa. People know about an icy moon of Jupiter with water beneath its surface. They may not know its NAME, but they know it's there. Not many people know anything about Europa the mythological figure. The moon is clearly the primary topic here, so the Europa page, currently a disambig page, should be moved to Europa (disambiguation), with this page moved to Europa. DN-boards1 (talk) 22:17, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Gun politics in IrelandFirearms legislation in Ireland – As discussed in this page's talk page, the title is inappropriate. This article is on the existing firearms legislation in Ireland; and firearms owners in Ireland work with the Department of Justice who draft the laws and the Gardai who enforce them, through the mechanism of the firearms consultation panel. NRA-style confrontational politics on the scale seen in the US is just not a done thing here, it's not part of the culture. MarkDennehy (talk) 21:59, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Coluber constrictor priapusSouthern black racerWP:COMMONNAME. As the article says, this really fast snake is "commonly known as the southern black racer". Google Advanced Search shows 14,700 results for "Southern black racer" and only 8,600 for "Coluber constrictor priapus". (The Google Ngram viewer is not helpful, as it finds only one instance of either one of those in a case-insensitive search.) The target name already redirects here and always has since it was created in 2006. There has never been a previous move or move discussion for this article. Note that the article itself and its Talk page use only the "racer" name, except for showing the article's title in the lead sentence and a sentence that was written to explain the meaning of the scientific name. —BarrelProof (talk) 19:31, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Foreign AffairsForeign Affairs (journal) – As discovered in the previous discussion, it is not possible to collect page view stats for this article alone because the views of this one and Foreign affairs are combined in the stats (the bot does not distinguish between capital and lower case letters). Therefore, to prove that this article is the primary topic, I propose that it be moved back to its original title of "Foreign Affairs (journal)" for a trial period of no more than a few days (let's say 3) with "Foreign Affairs" turned into a temporary three-page disambiguation of "Foreign Affairs (journal)", "Foreign affairs" and "Foreign affairs (disambiguation)". It will then be possible to collect data on how many users are searching for the journal, as opposed to foreign affairs and other uses. DrKiernan (talk) 08:06, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Eastman KodakKodakWP:COMMONNAME, as indicated by this ngram: [5]. "Kodak" will also include entries for "Eastman Kodak" of course, but since the prevalence of Kodak is more than five times that of Eastman Kodak, it seems clear that the basic name is still more common. WP:NCCORP also favours this: "Whenever possible, common usage is preferred (such as The Hartford for The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. and DuPont for the E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company)."  — Amakuru (talk) 08:18, 24 September 2015 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 00:45, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

October 1, 2015[edit]

  • (Discuss)Cumbric languageCumbric – As I argued in the previous RM, simple "Cumbric" is the better title for this variety on several levels. First, it's unarguably the WP:COMMONNAME for the subject ([6] vs. [7], and sources such as [8][9][10]). It's also the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC: while it was suggested before that the term "Cumbric" can refer to other topics, this isn't the case as far as I can tell. "Cumbric" is an invented conventional term for the form of the Brittonic language spoken in northern Britain in the early Middle Ages, and it only ever refers to this topic; the only entry in the OED is for this subject. In fact, Cumbric already redirects here and there's no other article it could conceivable point to. This makes including "language", as we do for ambiguous titles like Welsh language and Irish language, unnecessary. It's also poorly advised, as it has the potential to confuse readers: it's not clear that "Cumbric" was a language,[11] a dialect,[12] a variety,[13] etc., as it was apparently mutually intelligible with contemporary Welsh. This is a case where the "language is unquestionably the primary topic for the name", so we should follow WP:NCLANG and put the article at the base name. Cúchullain t/c 15:27, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Aled Davies (throwing events)Aled Davies (athlete) – This was moved by an editor who felt athlete was a ambiguous term and thus wanted to pin point the person's specialty. There was no other reason to move as there are no other track and field athletes called Aled Davies and 'throwing events' is a far more confusing term than 'athlete' which is used across Wikipedia without any real issues. FruitMonkey (talk) 18:50, 23 September 2015 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 07:01, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Bole (mythology)Bo Le – Per WP:NATURAL, and "Bo Le" already redirects to this page. Also see e.g. Bo Ya. In addition "mythology" is a poor disambiguator in my opinion as Bole was a historical person even though his stories had been exaggerated in legends, so even if the proposal didn't go through, the page should be moved to something like Bole (horse physiognomer) or something (and Bo Ya should also be moved if this is the case). Timmyshin (talk) 04:11, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)HMS Natal (1905)HMS Natal – This is the only ship of this name. The other ship with a similar name should properly be referred to as "HMSAS Natal", it should be dealt with by a hatnote. PatGallacher (talk) 00:02, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

September 30, 2015[edit]

  • (Discuss)Bulakbashi (town)Bulakbashi, Kyrgyzstan – There was a long-established article at Bulakbashi, about the village in Kyrgyzstan. On 2 Sept 2015 it was moved to Bulakbashi, Kyrgyzstan. In a series of edits from 19 Sept onwards its content was deleted and replaced by content about the town in Uzbekistan, and it was moved to Bulakbashi (town). I have reverted this article to the content it held on 17 Sept 2015, about the Kyrgyzstan village, to preserve the page history of the many contributors up to that date. Meanwhile, another page was created at Bulakbashi on 3 September, about the town in Uzbekistan. I have moved this to Bulakbashi, Andijan to allow creation of a dab page at Bulakbashi. Various other moves and copy-pastes this month have meant that redirects have been created with histories and the pages cannot be moved simply to their correct page names. If the two pages are moved as requested, we will have two pages at correct titles, each accessible from a dab page at Bulakbashi (I've put the text there, commented out, ready to use), and each containing the history of their creation properly attributed to the editors involved.

  • (Discuss)Carmen Gloria QuintanaCarmen Quintana – There is no other person of same name. Also, the middle name may not be necessary, commonly used or not. I am sure that the proposed name is commonly referring to the subject. George Ho (talk) 04:25, 22 September 2015 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 15:57, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Jennifer TeegeMy Grandfather Would Have Shot Me – per AfD opening a discussion. This article, as it is currently written, is a book article, with little content outside what is needed to cover the book. Therefore, it should be renamed to be about the book. The two topics have been deemed notable, but the article right now is about the book. -- (talk) 03:51, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

September 29, 2015[edit]

  • (Discuss)Dorothy Round LittleDorothy Round – Dorothy Round Little is the subjects married name. She won all of her significant titles under her maiden - Dorothy Round and prior to her marriage in September of 1937 (her last major title was in July of 1937). A simple search of the New York Times Archives will show that Dorothy Round was the predominate use of her name at that time. Thank You. – Tennisvine (talk) 23:45, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Ansar Bait al-MaqdisISIL Sinai Province – I would like to take another look at renaming this article since it has been 6 months since the previous RM. It appears Sinai Province has become the commonly used name by WP:RS to refer to the group. Examples: Reuters [18] AFP [19] BBC [20] The Guardian [21] The Independent [22] Al Jazeera [23] The New York Times [24] The US State Department recently amended it's terrorist designation of the group to include the alias ISIL Sinai Province [25], which I propose we use here. Gazkthul (talk) 23:35, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Front of the Greek Anticapitalist LeftANTARSYA – The current title is both an inaccurate translation of the Greek name, and unusual. This title was chosen according to the "official website" [26]. But this page does not exist anymore. This page of an organisation of Antarsya members in Britain uses "Anti-capitalist Left Cooperation for the Overthrow". But more important than the "official name" used by the party itself is the most common name in English-language secondary sources, see WP:Common names and WP:Official names. "Front of the Greek Anticapitalist Left" yields zero google books hits except a Wikipedia mirror by LLC Books. "Anti-capitalist Left Cooperation for the Overthrow" (with hyphen) yields no gbooks hits either. "Anticapitalist Left Cooperation for the Overthrow" (without hyphen) yields 5 gbooks hits (including the CIA Factbook), "Antarsya" or "ANTARSYA" yield 12 gbooks hits related to the Greek party, 11 of which spelled all-caps and one mixed-case. ANTARSYA is therefore the most common variant. Note that ANTARSYA is not just an acronym, but also a word which is most probably chosen on purpose (cf. backronym).

  • (Discuss)Havelock VetinariLord VetinariWP:COMMONNAME. Vetinari's given name is not commonly used. "Lord Vetinari" is noticeably more common in search results than "Havelock Vetinari". If he were a real person, the current name would be better, but WP:NCP explicitly does not apply to fictional characters. --BDD (talk) 14:55, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)1947–48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine1947–48 War in Mandatory Palestine – At the stage of history of the war the UK government had dropped any concept of a British Mandate for Palestine. The new UN mandate was for there to be two states and this was not a civil war. The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine had very clearly proscribed areas of land allocation which are indicated in the map shown. The partition plan clearly specified separate areas for both an Arab State and for a Jewish State with no support being given for a continuation of Mandatory Palestine. No faction within the war advocated a continuation in the existence of Mandatory Palestine and this was basically a territorial war with ethnic cleansing motivations being existent on both sides.

  • (Discuss)Jurassic Park: Chaos IslandChaos Island: The Lost World – This is the most common name. U.S. Copyright website has it listed as "Chaos Island", as does the Computer Games Magazine review. U.S. Trademark website has it listed as "Chaos Island The Lost World Jurassic Park". The game's official website and GameSpot have it listed as "Chaos Island: The Lost World". None of the websites have "Jurassic Park" listed first in the title, and only the trademark website uses it at all. Should use "The Lost World" subtitle since the game is based on the film. – 2602:306:80E5:6970:9198:2665:6283:6E89 (talk) 17:03, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)The dress (viral phenomenon)The dress (meme) – I originally moved the article to this title as a more concise, less pretentious alternative to the lengthy current title. For some reason unbeknownst to me, ToonLucas22 considered this title an NPOV violation and reverted. While I don't understand the logic for that in the slightest, this is now considered a "controversial" move and should be put through RM.

  • (Discuss)Walk-off home runWalk-off win – I agree that the term "walk-off" may be ambiguous, but the article may describe any form of win achieved by a walk-off. Although home runs are a particular form of walk-off wins, they account for a relatively small proportion of wins achieved via the walk-off fashion. As I said above, singles, doubles, triples, bases on balls, hits by pitches, sacrifice flies or bunts, stolen bases... these plays are all means of advancing bases, and can all occur in a walk-off situation. But in any case, the team which makes the walk-off play wins, hence the more generic, yet unambiguous title. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 14:04, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

  • (Discuss)Bill Black (politician)Bill Black (businessman) – The current name is not indicative of the subject.

  • (Discuss)Yuchi JingdeYuchi Gong – "Yuchi Gong" was his real name and shows up more in literature, as this Ngram suggests: [28]. Chinese wiki also uses "Yuchi Gong". I'm aware traditional history books from the 10-11th centuries call him primarily "Yuchi Jingde" but this guy has become a legendary figure (a god) and is no longer just a historical character.

  • (Discuss)Neural development in humansDevelopment of the nervous system in humans – This article in fact describes how the nervous system develops, and so should get a name that describes its scope.

  • (Discuss)2015 Romanian political crisis2015 in Romanian politics – While Ponta has legal issues and Iohannis has requested two times for his resignation, there is no political crisis, just day-to-day politics. A vote of no confidence in June, which might have sparked a crisis, didn't attain the necessary majority to pass. Moreover, I've checked a half of the sources and none mentions the term crisis.

  • (Discuss)Georgina EarlGeorgina Evers-Swindell – The Evers-Swindell sisters are double-Olympic gold medal winners (in 2004 and 2008). They both retired after the 2008 Olympics and subsequent to that, they both married and changed their names. Consequently, they are most commonly known by their maiden names. Both pages were moved without discussion, with the reasons provided "because she got married and changed her name" (Georgina) and "she married in December 2009 and changed her name" (Caroline). This is contrary to Wikipedia:MAIDEN, where it is stated that "the general rule in such cases is to title the article with the name by which the person is best known" (emphasis as per the source). Both articles should thus revert to their maiden names to meet the underlying requirement of Wikipedia:COMMONNAME. Schwede66 21:37, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)List of worker deaths in United States labor disputesList of worker slayings in labor disputes in the United States – To more accurately title the article based on its content, and to avoid POV associated with "murder". Synonym Discussion from kill, slay, murder, assassinate, dispatch, execute mean to deprive of life. kill merely states the fact of death caused by an agency in any manner <killed in an accident> <frost killed the plants>. slay is a chiefly literary term implying deliberateness and violence but not necessarily motive <slew thousands of the Philistines>. murder specifically implies stealth and motive and premeditation and therefore full moral responsibility <convicted of murdering a rival>. assassinate applies to deliberate killing openly or secretly often for political motives <terrorists assassinated the Senator>. dispatch stresses quickness and directness in putting to death <dispatched the sentry with one bullet>. execute stresses putting to death as a legal penalty <executed by lethal gas>. Proposed: adopt slaying for use in the title, as "a chiefly literary term implying deliberateness and violence but not necessarily motive." Also, to use the apt phrase, "list of", in the title.

  • (Discuss)MyocyteMuscle fibre – I propose this move having seen the excellent move by Philg88. Such a move makes the name much more approachable for lay readers and, I believe, meets WP:COMMONNAME. Tom (LT) (talk) 00:05, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Svenska ScoutförbundetScouterna – the organization was restructured three years ago, but it's all the same Scouts, it's more like a rebranding. Since this article has never been very substantial to begin with, and rather than reinvent the wheel, I propose we rename this article, leaving a redirect, and having a section talking about past history of the present iteration of the organization. According to User:Jergen, this is the organization that has been restructured. Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 17:26, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Movies & TVMicrosoft Movies & TV – Microsoft Movies & TV is the name of the video service, aka where you purchase or rent movies & buy TV shows. The app on Windows 10 is a playback app to watch your personal videos as well as those purchased from the service. While there is a small link to "shop for more," this app is more akin to Windows Media Player than the previous Video app on Windows 8 or the Zune software, which also played personal and purchased/rented videos. The video rental/purchase service formerly known as Xbox Video is called Microsoft Movies & TV, clearly explained on this FAQ and this Windows page which explains that "Microsoft Movies & TV" is the name, and "Movies & TV" has been used as second reference. Secondary articles from CNBC and Disney confirm this. Microsoft Movies & TV is Microsoft's digital video service the way Amazon Video, Google Play Movies & TV, or iTunes Movies are to those companies. The reason why "Movies & TV" shows up without "Microsoft" on Windows 10 is simple. The correct correlation is:  : Zune (service) -> Xbox Video (service) -> Microsoft Movies & TV (service)  : Zune software -> "Video" app on Windows 8 -> "Movies & TV" app on Windows 10)). Because the name had not fully changed at the time this tab was launched (it was still Xbox Video on Xbox Consoles), there was much confusion. The previous move request was declined before the Xbox Video service officially renamed itself (the Windows 10 playback app name had already released). Xbox 360 just renamed Xbox Video to Microsoft Movies & TV in the past week. "Movies & TV" as a name on an Internet search is not synonymous with Microsoft. If the article needs to be about Movies & TV, then it should either be about the Windows 10 app *only* with a separate article about Microsoft Movies & TV service, or just about the subject of Movies & TV at large. 2601:601:8800:36CD:85D8:EB9A:97C6:43D (talk) 08:02, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)Aman (disambiguation)Aman – There are so many real-world uses of Aman (which means peace or safety in several languages), it's amazing that the fictional legendarium place has stayed at Aman for so long. People have complained since 2008 that it should not be the primary topic. Aman Resorts alone is more prominent than the fictional place. Zanhe (talk) 05:28, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)XenXen Project – xen is ambiguous whereas this article represents Xen Project who's core was more specifically XCP than it was xenserver from what I understand although it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong. sckirklan (talk) 02:39, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)David Burgess (lawyer)Sonia Burgess – The current name (David Burgess) is in blatant disregard to Wikipedia's transgender naming policy ( It is disrespectful to the individual and to the transgender community. It does not matter if this was the name they used in their professional life, just as the changes for celebrities who change their name are made, the changes for Sonia Burgess should also be made. We need some LGBT moderators in this conversation who are more knowledgeable about the subject. Anon523 (talk) 19:57, 15 September 2015 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 09:53, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
  • (Discuss)ShungaShunga (art) – I would like move Shunga (disambiguation) here and move Shunga to Shunga (art). This is because the Shunga Empire is a notable topic which is referred to by the term Shunga as well. The "Shunga" in Shunga Empire is a transliteration of the Sanskrit शुङ्ग; it is also transliterated more accurately to "Śuṅga" or when these diacritics are dropped (which is often), to just "Sunga". For notability, please compare: # Google Search: Shunga (Empire) (582,000 results) vs Shunga (art) (506,000) # Google Books: Shunga (Empire) (34,300 results) vs Shunga (art) (11,000) N.B. These searches compare all three Shunga (empire) spelling variants restricted by the Empire/Dynasty keywords against variants of Shunga (such as Syunga and Shun'ga) restricted by Japanese/Erotic. (Edit): The search stats above were updated on Aug 11 to include the Syunga and Shun'ga spelling variants. -- Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 19:53, 10 August 2015 (UTC) Relisted.
