If you are unable to complete a technical move, request it below.

  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code filling in pages and reason:
    {{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 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.
  • 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. 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]

  • No Woman (film) → No Woman (move · discuss) – Move to correct title - no need for disambiguation. Previously requested here as move from "No woman" but moved to wrong title. – PamD 07:52, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
    • It turns out that a very new editor (registered yesterday) took it on themselves to edit my move request, on the basis that because an unlinked song on a debut album and a partial title match exist, this film needed to be at a disambiguated title. While they create their dab page as a draft, the correct title for this film is still a red link at No Woman, with no link from there to the current incorrect title. PamD 17:09, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
