WP:RfD discussion for Ireland (state)[edit]

The following is an archived discussion concerning one or more redirects. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on an appropriate discussion page (such as the redirect's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the discussion was no consensus on any action at this time after being open for more than a month. Despite concerns of ambiguity, others have pointed out that the Republic of Ireland is the primary topic for this redirect. -- Tavix (talk) 23:47, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

More than one state named Ireland. SSTflyer 08:14, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Admin note: I have moved this here from Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2016 June 30, because of the outstanding arb com ruling at Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Ireland article names#Request to amend prior case: Ireland article names. All discussion must take place on this page. Pinging SSTflyer so that you're aware of this move of the discussion. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 09:39, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Discussion here?[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Ireland Collaboration:Per - "Discussions relating to the naming of Ireland articles must occur at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ireland Collaboration by order of the Arbitration Committee" it would appear one has to take the issue of the misnaming on Wiki of the State called Ireland here? Am I right? (I'm hate to break any rules imposed by the non-Irish majority) Sarah777 (talk) 19:35, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

I may have deleted this in error, I thought it was some spam I inadvertently pasted here:

Discussions relating to the naming of Ireland articles must occur at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ireland Collaboration by order of the Arbitration Committee.

1. Can you not undo your own edit?
2. Can you please WP:AGF? Whether or not there is or isn't an Irish majority is a) unproven, and b) irrelevant. You're also wrong to state that Ireland may be one of the only countries on enWiki that is saddled with a description rather than its actual sovereign name - it's actually pretty common for state articles. But then that's been pointed to you before in previous debates. BastunĖġáḍβáś₮ŭŃ! 20:59, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Certainly not irrelevant; and as I've pointed out it is fairly well proven. Sarah777 (talk) 21:01, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Always playing the hard done victim who refuses to accept they are solely at fault for their own predicament. Anyways why is this posted here and not on the actual talk page of this collaboration? Mabuska (talk) 10:23, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Are you allowed, as in not prohibited, Sarah777 to be involved in such a discussion never mind instigate one on a topic that you have frequently ended up in trouble over in the past? Seems like a pointless restart of an argument that always ends the same, and on that per the many valid reasons given a great multitude of times by many others before I oppose changing the current manual of style in regards to this issue. Mabuska (talk) 10:58, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure a personal attack is the best response to this. Scolaire (talk) 11:07, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
Correction: I didn't instigate it, I responded to another poster who asked why the article was called ROI. Am I allowed talk about it? - not sure - but you are correct that the decision (for the reason I've repeatedly stated) always ends with the same way. So I am not proposing any name change, new vote or even discussion of this. I withdraw. Sarah777 (talk) 12:33, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

I've moved this here from the project page. I'm not altogether sure what any of it means, but I see that Bastun closed a discussion at Talk:Republic of Ireland because it suggested renaming the article, which ArbCom ruled in 2009 can only be discussed on this page. There is a note to that effect at the top of the Talk:Ireland page but not at the top of this one. As far as I can see, the note was never on this page, and therefore was never removed. There are three move proposals at /Archive 33 (Jan 2014 – Jun 2015). All of them were heavily defeated (and got little or no support from "Irish" users).

Draft:Ireland[edit]

As a consequence of the discussion at Talk:Republic of Ireland, a user has decided to write a new article, Draft:Ireland, as "a broad concept index about the Ireland [sic] and the countries on it." I think this is a recipe for trouble. I've opened a discussion at Draft talk:Ireland. Contributions welcome. Scolaire (talk) 11:47, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

It's certainly a recipe for trouble for me! I've made my point (again), I'll be leaving it at that. Sarah777 (talk) 12:39, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

The page has been speedy deleted at the request of the author. No need for further discussion. Scolaire (talk) 16:03, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
