User:Diptanshu Das

I am a Veteran Editor IV editing since 2008. I am a new page reviewer and have AFCH rights. Sometimes there are pre-existing articles (usually blanked or redirected) in the target location and everytime I need to request some admin for the move. Furthermore, the redirect from draft after move to mainspace often becomes pointless. This right should take care of these issues. Diptanshu 💬 04:32, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Diptanshu Das, I haven't fully evaluated this request, but as a note we always leave the draft redirect after accepting an article, and if you are granted this permission I hope that you will not use it to suppress the creation of a redirect when moving pages out of the draft space.

Comment I don't really have a direct opinion on the matter, but it seems this editor has some confusion on page moves. Drewmutt (^ᴥ^) talk 15:32, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@Primefac: Yes, I acknowledge that if given the capacity, I will leave the draft redirect in place after accepting an article. @Drewmutt:, I do not think I have a confusion but am willing to update my understanding in case there is a gap anywhere. Regarding the acceptance of the draft Uncharted (movie), I had already checked that there are enough reliable sources present even though they are yet to be cited in the article (in the present status).

Not done There's no need demonstrated for the use of this tool - ordinarily I wouldn't use that as a reason to decline a request, I firmly believe in the 'no big deal' principle, particularly with intermediate permissions (those between autoconfirmed and sysop) and would be happy to grant a permission even if it will be used only infrequently, but as there's also some concern that the tool would be accidentally misused, granting at this time would be particularly unwise.

To make non-controversial round-robin type moves whilst wikignoming. (For example have just come across Learn to Fly (a1 song) which needs to be moved to Learn to Fly (A1 song) to match band article A1 (band) and other disambiguation for songs by this band in Category:A1 (band) songs, but its way is blocked.) I have a long editing history and am familiar with the guidelines, and have had reviewer and rollbacker rights since 2010. Per my CSD log, nearly everything I've speedied with the "db-move" CSD still sits at the title requested. --woodensuperman 15:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Would most likely help in my NPP work. Will have to use it sparingly at first, to get used to its proper implementation. Hadn't really known about this until being pointed here by another editor who thought I had already had this user right. Onel5969 TT me 15:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

I recently moved {{Infobox GPCR}} to {{Infobox receptor}} per a discussion at WT:PHARM. I had to manually move {{Infobox GPCR/sandbox}} and {{Infobox GPCR/doc}} given that I don't have this user right. Since I've also had to move articles with talk page archives in the past and had to manually move those archives, having this user right would make things much less tedious for me in the future when I encounter the need to move subpages again.
