Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you are unable to complete a move for technical reasons, you can request technical help below. This is the correct method if you tried to move a page, but you got an error message saying something like "You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reasons:..." or "The/This page could not be moved, for the following reason:..."

  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code at the bottom of the list, filling in pages and reason:

    {{subst:RMassist|current page title|new title|reason=edit summary for the 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 ~~~~. Consider pinging the requester to let them know about the objection.
  • 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.

Technical requests[edit]

Uncontroversial technical requests[edit]

  • Sunsoft  Sun Corporation (currently a redirect back to Sunsoft) (move · discuss) – Up until yesterday, the article was mainly about the video game division Sunsoft. But another user significantly edited the article yesterday to now make it primarily about the parent company Sun Corporation but without renaming the page accordingly to reflect the change. I have no personal opinion about the article taking a new turn to focus on Sun Corporation instead of Sunsoft. But the page should logically be changed to reflect the change. This isn't a case of WP:COMMONNAME but rather two entities that are different, one being owned by the other. (talk) 12:39, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Requests to revert undiscussed moves[edit]

Please revert all moves by this blocked account Special:Contributions/AmyJadeja. Thank you Gryffindor (talk) 09:39, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

All are done so far up to Minamoto clan, the ones older than that are still pending (there are a couple I don't understand, almost looks like redirects were moved pointlessly, I'll look at them later but I've been interrupted by work so if anybody else wants to take the rest on (and double check mine) please feel free ASUKITE 14:10, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Contested technical requests[edit]

@Jay1279 If the municipality is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, then adding "Municipality" is unnecessary disambiguation. If you're arguing that the city should be the primary topic instead of the municipality, that would require a formal move discussion (click the "discuss" link in your request above). --Ahecht (TALK

@Official-Sensitive Not necessarily uncontroversial. The majority of sources refer to it as "HMP Prison Forest Bank." See WP:COMMONNAME. I suggest starting a RM discussion. You can do this by clicking "discuss" next to the page link above. C F A 💬 16:19, 13 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Official-Sensitive: Do you have a link to this guidance? Graham (talk) 04:54, 16 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Pogenplain There were two attempts to move this in 2013 at Talk:Kutub_al-Sittah. While it's very likely that usage or opinions could've changed in the last 11 years, it would require a new discussion. Please click the "discuss" link in your request above to open a full move request. --Ahecht (TALK
