Moderator proposal[edit]

A Request for Comment on a proposal to create a new user group with an abbreviated set of administrator user-rights, as an option for editors to request instead of requesting the entire sysop user-right package. I welcome everyone's thoughts on this. - jc37 21:15, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Hollywood to Cinema of the United States[edit]

I tried to use the form to make my request, but I got an error message saying that "Hollywood" already existed, so I am posting my plea here.

The vast number of references to "Hollywood" in Wikipedia are to the motion picture industry in the United States and not to the neighborhood in Los Angeles. I specialize in Los Angeles neighborhoods and have just spent several hours editing articles so that "Hollywood" in the motion-picture sense points to "Cinema of the United States." I realize now it is a sisyphean task. There are simply too many uses of "Hollywood" referring to the U.S. film industry to go through every single one by hand. It would be easier to simply ask Los Angeles editors (like me) to type in Hollywood, Los Angeles, when they want to refer to that neighborhood, which already has a hatnote stating exactly what the article covers.
