Requested moves is a process for requesting the retitling (moving) of an article, template, or project page on Wikipedia. (For retitling files, categories and other items, see When not to use this page.)
Please read the article titling policy and the guideline regarding primary topics before moving a page or requesting a page move.
Any autoconfirmed user can use the Move function to perform most moves (see Help:How to move a page). If you have no reason to expect a dispute concerning a move, be bold and move the page. However, it may not always be possible or desirable to do this:
  • Technical reasons may prevent a move: a page may already exist at the target title and require deletion, or the page may be protected from moves. See: § Requesting technical moves.
  • Requests to revert recent, undiscussed, controversial moves may be made at WP:RM/TR. If the new name has not become the stable title, the undiscussed move will be reverted. If the new name has become the stable title, a requested move will be needed to determine the article's proper location.
  • A title may be disputed, and discussion may be necessary to reach consensus: see § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves. The requested moves process is not mandatory, and sometimes an informal discussion at the article's talk page can help reach consensus.
  • Unregistered users and new (not yet autoconfirmed) users are unable to move pages.
Requests are generally processed after seven days. If consensus is reached at or after this time, a reviewer will enact the request. If not, the request may be re-listed to allow more time for consensus to develop, or the discussion closed as "no consensus". See Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions for more details on the process.
Wikipedia:Move review can be used to contest the outcome of a move request as long as all steps are followed. If a discussion on the closer's talk page does not resolve an issue, then a move review will evaluate the close of the move discussion to determine whether or not the contested close was reasonable and consistent with the spirit and intent of common practice, policies, and guidelines.
When not to use this page
Separate processes exist for moving certain types of pages, and for changes other than page moves:
Undiscussed moves
Autoconfirmed editors may move a page without discussion if all of the following apply:
  • No article exists at the new target title;
  • There has been no discussion (especially no recent discussion) about the title of the page that expressed any objection to a new title; and
  • It seems unlikely that anyone would reasonably disagree with the move.
If you disagree with such a move, and the new title has not been in place for a long time, you may revert the move. If you cannot revert the move for technical reasons, then you may request a technical move.
Move wars are disruptive, so if you make a bold move and it is reverted, do not make the move again. Instead, follow the procedures laid out in § Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves.
Requesting technical moves
If you are unable to complete a move for technical reasons, you can request technical help below. This is the correct page if you tried to move a page, and you got an error message saying something like "You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reasons:".
If you are here because you want an admin to approve of your new article or your proposed page move, you are in the wrong place.
  • If this is your first article and you want your draft article moved to the mainspace, please submit it for review at Articles for creation, by adding the code {{subst:submit}} to the top of the draft or user sandbox page instead of listing it here.
  • If you are logged in and have made more than 10 edits, you can probably move most pages yourself. Do not request technical assistance on this page if you can do it yourself.
  • If you need help determining whether it's okay to move the page to a different title, then please follow the instructions at the top of Wikipedia:Requested moves.
  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code at the top of the list, filling in pages and reason:
    {{​subst:RMassist​|​current page title|new page title|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 ~~~~. 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.

Requests to revert undiscussed moves
Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves
The discussion process is used for potentially controversial moves. A move is potentially controversial if either of the following applies:
  • there has been any past debate about the best title for the page;
  • someone could reasonably disagree with the move.
Use this process if there is any reason to believe a move would be contested. For technical move requests, such as to correct obvious typographical errors, see Requesting technical moves. The technical moves procedure can also be used for uncontroversial moves when the requested title is occupied by an existing article.
Do not create a new move request when one is already open on the same talk page. Instead, consider contributing to the open discussion if you would like to propose another alternative. Multiple closed move requests may be on the same page, but each should have a unique section heading.
Do not create a move request to rename one or more redirects. Redirects cannot be used as current titles in requested moves.
Requesting a single page move
To request a single page move, click on the "New section" tab of the talk page of the article you want moved, without adding a new subject/header, inserting this code:
{{subst:requested move​|NewName|reason=Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. You don't need to add your signature at the end, as this template will do so automatically.}}
Replace NewName with the requested new name of the page (or with a simple question mark, if you want more than one possible new name to be considered). The template will automatically create the heading "Requested move 21 June 2021" and sign the post for you.
There is no need to edit the article in question. Once the above code is added to the Talk page, a bot will automatically add the following notification at the top of the article:
Note: Unlike other request processes on Wikipedia, such as Requests for comment, nominations need not be neutral. Make your point as best you can; use evidence (such as Google Ngrams and pageview statistics) and refer to applicable policies and guidelines, especially our article titling policy and the guideline on disambiguation and primary topics.
WikiProjects may subscribe to Article alerts to receive RM notifications. For example, Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Article alerts/Requested moves is transcluded to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography. RMCD bot notifies many of the other Wikiprojects listed on the talk page of the article to be moved to invite project members to participate in the RM discussion. Requesters should feel free to notify any other Wikiproject or noticeboard that might be interested in the move request, as long as this notification is neutral.
Single page move on a different talk page
Occasionally, a move request must be made on a talk page other than the talk page of the page to be moved. For example, a request to rename Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources to Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Reviewing and templates would need to take place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation because the talk page of the project page to be moved, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation/Resources, is a redirect to that centralized discussion page. In this type of case, the requested move should be made using the following code:
{{subst:requested move|reason=(the reason for the page move goes here).|current1=(present title of page to be renamed)|new1=(proposed title of page)}}
Note that the |1= unnamed parameter is not used, and that the |current1= and |new1= parameters are used similar to multiple page moves described below.
Requesting multiple page moves
A single template may be used to request multiple related moves. On one of the talk pages of the affected articles, create a request and format it as below. A sample request for three page moves is shown here (for two page moves, omit the lines for current3 and new3). For four page moves, add lines for current4 and new4, and so on. There is no technical limit on the number of multiple move requests, but before requesting very large multi-moves, consider whether a naming convention should be changed first. Discuss that change on the talk page for the naming convention, e.g., Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (sportspeople).
To request a multiple page move, edit at the bottom of the talk page of the article you chose for your request, without adding a new header, inserting this code:
{{subst:requested move
| current1 = Current title of page 1
| new1 = New title for page 1 with the talk page hosting this discussion
| current2 = Current title of page 2
| new2 = New title for page 2
| current3 = Current title of page 3
| new3 = New title for page 3
| reason = Place here your rationale for the proposed page name change, ideally referring to applicable naming convention policies and guidelines, and providing evidence in support where appropriate. If your reasoning includes search engine results, please prioritize searches limited to reliable sources (e.g. books, news, scholarly papers) over other web results. You don't need to add your signature at the end, as this template will do so automatically.}}
See also: Template:Requested move/extended blank
For example, to propose moving the articles Wikipedia and Wiki, put this template on Talk:Wikipedia, and replace current2 with Wiki. The discussion for all affected articles is held on the talk page of the article at page 1 (Talk:Wikipedia). Do not sign a request with ~~~~ as the template does this automatically. Do not skip pairs of numbers.
RMCD bot automatically places a notice section on the talk page of the additional pages that are included in your request, advising that the move discussion is in progress, where it is, and that all discussion for all pages included in the request should take place at that one location.
Occasionally the discussions for significant multi-move requests may be hosted on WikiProject talk pages or other pages in Project namespace. For multi-move discussions hosted on a page which is not itself proposed to be moved, specify |current1=Current title of page 1 for the first page to move.
Request all associated moves explicitly
Please list every move that you wish to have made in your request. For example, if you wish to move Cricket (disambiguation) to Cricket because you do not believe the sport is the primary topic for the search term "Cricket", then you actually want to move two pages, both Cricket (disambiguation) and Cricket. Thus you must list proposed titles for each page affected by your request. For example, you might propose:
If a new title is not proposed for the sport, it is more difficult to achieve consensus for a new title for that article. A move request that does not show what to do with the material at its proposed target, such as:
Cricket (disambiguation)Cricket
is incomplete. Such requests may be completed as a request to decide the best new title by discussion.

Commenting on a requested move
All editors are welcome to contribute to the discussion regarding a requested page move. There are a number of standards that Wikipedians should practice in such discussions:
  • When editors recommend a course of action, they write Support or Oppose in bold text, which is done by surrounding the word with three single quotes on each side, e.g. '''Support'''.
  • Comments or recommendations are added on a new bulleted line (that is, starting with *) and signed by adding ~~~~ to the end. Responses to another editor are threaded and indented using multiple bullets.
  • The article itself should be reviewed before any recommendation is made; do not base recommendations solely on the information supplied by other editors. It may also help to look at the article's edit history. However, please read the earlier comments and recommendations, as well as prior move requests. They may contain relevant arguments and useful information.
  • Vested interests in the article should be disclosed per Wikipedia:Conflict of interest#How to disclose a COI.
When participating, please consider the following:
  • Editors should make themselves familiar with the article titling policy at Wikipedia:Article titles.
  • Other important guidelines that set forth community norms for article titles include Wikipedia:Disambiguation​, specific naming conventions, and the manual of style.
  • The debate is not a vote; please do not make recommendations that are not sustained by arguments.
  • Explain how the proposed article title meets or contravenes policy and guidelines rather than merely stating that it does so.
  • Nomination already implies that the nominator supports the name change, and nominators should refrain from repeating this recommendation on a separate bulleted line.[a]
  • Do not make conflicting recommendations. If you change your mind, use strike-through to retract your previous statement by enclosing it between <s> and </s> after the bullets, and de-bold the struck words, as in "• SupportOppose".
Please remember that reasonable editors will sometimes disagree, but that arguments based in policy, guidelines, and evidence have more weight than unsupported statements. When an editor offers an argument that does not explain how the move request is consistent with policies and guidelines, a reminder to engage in constructive, on-topic discussion may be useful. On the other hand, a pattern of responding to requests with groundless opinion, proof by assertion, and ignoring content guidelines may become disruptive. If a pattern of disruptive behavior persists after efforts are made to correct the situation through dialogue, please consider using a dispute resolution process.
Closing a requested move
Any uninvolved editor in good standing may close a move request. Please read the closing instructions for information on how to close a move request. The Simple guide to closing RM discussions details how to actually close a requested move discussion.
Relisting a requested move
Relisting a discussion moves the request out of the backlog up to the current day in order to encourage further input. The decision to relist a discussion is best left to uninvolved experienced editors upon considering, but declining, to close the discussion. In general, discussions should not be relisted more than once before properly closing.[b] Users relisting a debate which has already been relisted, or relisting a debate with a substantial discussion, should write a short explanation on why they did not consider the debate sufficient to close. While there is no consensus forbidding participation in a requested move discussion after relisting it, many editors consider it an inadvisable form of supervote. If you want to relist a discussion and then participate in it, be prepared to explain why you think it was appropriate.
Relisting can be done using, which automatically includes the relister's signature, and which must be placed at the very end of the initial request after the move requester's signature (and subsequent relisters' signatures). When a discussion has been relisted a bot partially underlines the "Discuss" link in the lists of debates: (Discuss).
When a relisted discussion reaches a resolution, it may be closed at any time according to the closing instructions; there is no required length of time to wait before closing a relisted discussion.
If discussion has become stale, or it seems that discussion would benefit from more input of editors versed in the subject area, consider more widely publicizing the discussion, such as by notifying WikiProjects of the discussion using the template {{RM notification}}. Banners placed at the top of the talk page hosting the move request can often be used to identify WikiProjects suitable for notification.
  1. ^ A nominator making a procedural nomination with which they may not agree is free to add a bulleted line explaining their actual position. Additional detail, such as sources, may also be provided in an additional bullet point if its inclusion in the nomination statement would make the statement unwieldy. Please remember that the entire nomination statement is transcluded into the list on this page.
  2. ^ Despite this, discussions are occasionally relisted more than once.
Current discussions
This section lists all requests filed or identified as potentially controversial which are currently under discussion.
Do not attempt to edit this list manually; a bot will automatically update the page soon after the {{subst:Requested move}} template is added to the discussion on the relevant talk page. The entry is removed automatically soon after the discussion is closed.
To make a change to an entry, make the change on the linked talk page.

(Discuss)Benjamin Franklin GordonB. Frank Gordon – While doing some research for articles about Price's Raid and other topics, I've noticed that Gordon is usually referred to a "B. Frank Gordon" or "Frank Gordon" rather than Benjamin Franklin Gordon. Searches seem to confirm my impression that "B. Frank Gordon" is how Gordon is most commonly referred, so unless my instinct on what he's most commonly referred to as is wrong, I think WP:COMMONNAME supports B. Frank Gordon as the title.

(Discuss)List of songs recorded by Taylor SwiftList of songs written by Taylor Swift – It makes much more sense for the page to be songs Swift, a singer-songwriter, has written rather than songs she has recorded. If the page is moved, 17 songs would be removed (the covers of songs she has done), but that would open up the door for all the unreleased songs she has written (and there are many more than 17 of them) to be included, which makes much more sense, as the covers didn't do much for her career, but the five years of songwriting Swift did before releasing an album basically started her career.

It is necessary to add "locker room access" to clarify the reasons for the controversy. Additionally, most headlines about the story include the words "transgender" and "locker room".

(Discuss)Hawaiian earringInfinite earring space – The use of "Hawaiian" in Hawaiian earring originated in the 1950's to identify this space as being "exotic." It has no apparent connection to Hawaiian mathematicians. This particular use of "Hawaiian earring" perpetuations the association of Hawaii and Hawaiian native culture with that which is exotic. This kind of association is no longer acceptable. Moreover, this usage is not universally used in mathematics and there is substantial momentum to do away with it. The term "Hawaiian" no longer has a place being the title term for this page. The title of this page should be changed to "Infinite earring" or "Infinite earring space" and all instances of Hawaiian, perhaps with an exception of a remark clarifying the evolution of the name, should be removed. It is clear that the opposition has not attempted to actually parse mathematics references and has only conducted a quick internet search of the term "Hawaiian earring" which will obviously pull up the many references that do use this term. This space is called the "infinite earring" on Section 71 of James Munkres' book "Topology." This is the most commonly used textbook for teaching topology. This space is called the "shrinking wedge of circles" in Alan Hatcher's standard book "Algebraic topology." Some older texts use "clamshell." The term "Hawaiian earring" is indeed popular but is not standard. Jtbrazas (talk) 18:10, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)Washington's BirthdayPresidents' Day – "Presidents' Day" is clearly the WP:COMMONNAME for the holiday. According to this ngram, since approximately 1995, "Presidents' Day" or some variation on it has been more common in English books than "Washington's Birthday". Additionally, in the year 2020, news articles mentioning "Presidents' Day" were approximately five times more frequent than news articles mentioning "Washington's Birthday". You can also see that most of the articles mentioning "Washington's Birthday" note that the holiday is popularly called "Presidents' Day", and that many only use the phrase "Washington's Birthday" as part of a description of what "Presidents' Day" celebrates. For example, the The Washington Post said that the holiday is "generally called" Presidents' Day here, and CNN used "Washington's Birthday" as a reference to the reason we celebrate the holiday rather than the name of the holiday itself here. I'll also note that per Wikipedia:Official names, we should not give too much weight to the subject's official name.

(Discuss)Waterson–CarthyWaterson:CarthyWaterson:Carthy was the original name of this page, and was moved without discussion for reasons which appear bogus. The name with the colon separator is the one used consistently by the band themselves and by informed commentators. For example see every one of their seven album covers viewable from their Musicbrainz discography, the consistent usage throughout the WP article itself, the Allmusic reference in the article, reviews in major newspapers such as [2] and [3] (though they add a space after the colon for their own Guardian style reasons), the major discography at Mainly Norfolk. I will go on if necessary, but I think those examples demonstrate that the original article title is not only the official title but the title most commonly used.

— User:Redtigerxyz (originally answered on Talk:Adi Parashakti#Name
There is hardly a WP:RS which refers the goddess with the name "Adi Parashakti". However, many sources refer the supreme goddess as Mahadevi. Eg. [4], [5], [6], [7], [8] The article Adi Parashakti should be renamed as Mahadevi, as per WP: Common name. Regards,

(Discuss)Crunchyroll SASCrunchyroll EMEA – The current article describes Crunchyroll's business in Europe as a whole, rather than the business of Crunchyroll SAS, which is the French subsidiary of Crunchyroll. Kaze Germany, Anime on Demand, Eye See Movies, and AV Visionen are not subsidiaries of Crunchyroll SAS (as listed on the article currently), but are instead subsidiaries of Crunchyroll SA, a Crunchyroll subsidiary based in Switzerland (formerly Viz Media Switzerland) (see impressum). As such, I think it is better to have the page as Crunchyroll EMEA to encompass Crunchyroll's European business as a whole, rather than titling it the French subsidiary Crunchyroll SAS, which technically only encompasses the French-speaking business, and excludes Crunchyroll SA, who owns those companies/brands that I just listed. As for the title, Crunchyroll uses the name "Crunchyroll EMEA" in the original press release of their rebrand. If anybody is confused by what I mean, the German Wikipedia article for Crunchyroll has a chart which may help explain how the company is structured. In showing this though, I am not using this as evidence, rather I am using this to help clarify my point. tenshibeat (talk|contribs) 08:20, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)You Signed Up for ThisYou Signed Up For This – It is frustrating that some people who insist on the page being titled 'You Signed Up for This' seem to be illiterate because they love to cite MOS:TITLECAPS but have not actually read the full details. The Wikipedia style in MOS:TITLECAPS recognises that exceptions can be made for prepositions in the titles of media even if they are under 5 letters long. Page note [f] of MOS:TITLECAPS states that prepositions such as the word 'for' in album titles can be capitalised if they are a "mid-title preposition, and is found capitalized in almost all independent sources". In this instance, the word 'for' in the album title meets those criteria. It does not make any sense whatsoever to have the album title capitalised differently specifically for this article when all words of the title have been correctly capitalised in every independent source discussing the album. Lone Wikipedia editors should not be able to change the album title in stark contrast to the overwhelming consensus of the title in the media simply because it's their personal opinion and they feel entitled for it to happen. You can't change the name of the album so the page should therefore follow the name of the album exactly, except in cases where the album title is in all caps which should then should revert to using title case. Wikipedia is built on consensus and there has been a clear consensus established by all independent sources that are wilfully being ignored. Secondly, the album title is You Signed Up For This, not 'You Signed Up for This'. You Signed Up For This is the way the title is stylised on the album cover itself and in official listings on music services and retailers. For those dismissing the official stylisation of the album as irrelevant, you should look at the page for the David Bowie album Heroes which is titled '"Heroes" (David Bowie album)'. On the album's cover, 'Heroes' is put in quotation marks and the name of the article follows what is on the cover. For consistency, You Signed Up For This should also follow the capitalisation clearly displayed on its album cover rather than there being two different and incongruent capitalisations of the title that are shown side-by-side. Those seeking to wrongly capitalise the title are trying to overwrite what the artist intended when the album cover clearly shows every word in the title capitalised. Thirdly, the album title is You Signed Up For This and it should follow title case outlined by the AP Stylebook which clearly states that all words are capitalised with the exception of specifically linking words such as 'and', 'the' and 'or'. The aforementioned words are passive words that link nouns together whereas 'For' in the album title is an active word that describes intention or direction such as signing up for something with clear purpose. This move request should not be controversial when it simply seeks this article to be consistent when capitalising the album title both in this Wikipedia article, the capitalisation clearly visible on the album cover and the capitalisation used by all sources.

(Discuss)Louise Allen (American actress)Louise Allen (actress)Louise Allen (actress) currently redirects to the British actress Alice May, but contrary to the Wikipedia article (which is not a reliable source) and the many sources that mirror Wikipedia content, Alice May appears to have never been "known" as Louise Allen, as an actress or otherwise: the name may be a simple mistake: A 2003 biography of Alice May (p. 201, note for p. 115) states, regarding the 1881 census: "The modern transcription of this document has her first name as Louise rather than Alice. This appears to be a mis-reading of deciphering the original handwriting... A search for a possible "Louise" or "Louisa" May has yielded no results." A single misread in a primary document is no basis for a primary topic. Thus, the only actress with a Wikipedia article who is commonly and reliably called Louise Allen is the American actress. --Animalparty! (talk) 01:46, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)Hardcore (punk rock and heavy metal subgenre)Beatdown hardcore – The move to Hardcore (punk rock and heavy metal subgenre) was entirely discussed, and this current name makes very little sense: 1.

"Hardcore" is more commonly used to refer to hardcore punk than it is a "punk rock and heavy metal subgenre".

Therefore, I believe that we should move the rugby union tournament, and redirect Hampshire Bowl to Rose Bowl (cricket ground) (with a hatnote on the latter page).

(Discuss)Winston Boogie Smith protests2021 Uptown Minneapolis unrest – I propose moving the article to 2021 Uptown Minneapolis unrest. The current title of the article no longer seems to fit the course of events, which includes a reaction to the killing of Smith, looting in Uptown on June 4-5, the vehicle-ramming attack on June 13, dual memorialization of Smith and Knajdek, and the repeated effort of demonstrators to occupy a portion of a street. The events have been heavily localized, according to cited sources, on a several block stretch of West Lake Street in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, with sources covering the highly localized economic impact of the events to the Uptown area. Also, the title 2021 Uptown Minneapolis unrest follows the when-where-what format. Many headlines cited in the article reference "Uptown" or "Uptown Minneapolis" (a common name for the area that distinguishes it from the many Uptowns in other cities) and use the words "protest", "looting", "unrest", "vandalism", etc. The term "unrest" is a broad and neutral way to convey the events there. The year "2021" helps distinguishes the ongoing unrest on Lake Street from the unrest that occurred during initial wave of George Floyd protests in Minneapolis–Saint Paul in 2020. Some content currently in the article that took place outside of Uptown could move to the reaction section of Killing of Winston Boogie Smith, if needed, to keep the article focused on events in Uptown. By comparison, the aftermath of the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin is the Kenosha unrest. Minnemeeples (talk) 14:14, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)South Africa national football teamSouth Africa national soccer team – The past arguments against moving the page two or three years ago are not as strong as they once were. Australia's governing body is called Football Australia but the page is titled: Australia national soccer team as that is the most popular term in the country, like is the case in South Africa. The page for association football in South Africa uses the term "soccer," and if the name for this page were moved, it would provide for greater uniformity. Finally, the word "soccer" is the more popular term in South Africa and because the page requires the use of South African English and vernacular, it would make sense to change it to soccer.

(Discuss)War in Iraq (2013–2017)War in Iraq (2014–2017) – Sources, media and people refer to the June 4 ISIL offensive in Iraq, in which ISIL fighters came from syria and expanded their territory in Iraq from controlling just Fallujah to 40% of Iraqi territory, as the beginning of the “war”. Most sources don’t date the beginning of the war in december 2013 when clashes broke out only in the towns of ramadi and fallujah. Here are articles that indicate the war begun in the 2014 june offensive: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/02/kurdish-leader-isis-conflict-iraq-iran/606502/ “ Kurdish fighters, called peshmerga, defended their territory from the ISIS onslaught in 2014”, https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-42291985 “ The jihadist group had seized large swathes of Syria and Iraq in 2014”, https://www.dw.com/en/iraq-declares-end-of-war-against-islamic-state/a-41724333 “IS rose to notoriety in 2014, when it captured large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, culminating in the sacking and occupation of Mosul.”, https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/12/9/iraqi-pm-abadi-declares-end-of-war-against-isil “The quick advance by ISIL in Iraq began in 2014.“ also “Saturday’s announcement marks the end of the three-year war to drive ISIL out of Iraq.” 3 minus 2017 equals 2014 which means the article says the war started in 2014. Ridax2020 (talk) 20:16, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)PeplomerSpike protein – The article points this out (without a citation), but this really isn't the most common term in current use.

Of course, if this really were the current common term for the proteins in question, the past year should have produced hundreds of peplomer papers, but there's only 4. Similarly, see the use-by-year graphs in pubmed for peplomer and "spike protein". And the overwhelming majority of related media coverage on topics like SARS-CoV-2 variants, vaccines, antigens, etc, has used "spike", making it the common name outside the scientific literature as well.

(Discuss)Magellan's circumnavigation → ? – As previously discussed the article title should be modified as it is misleading and not accurate. Magellan's expedition is one thing, other thing is the first circumnavigation of the Earth. This do not underestimate the great Magellan's legacy and achievements, i.e. succeeding the first expedition goal when finding the interoceanic passage through the Americas and then crossing the Pacific. The expedition was led by Magellan until his death in 1521, then others took command of it, ultimately Elcano, to continue the search for the Spice Islands, the expedition's ultimate goal achieved by Elcano. Only then the latter decided to return to Spain sailing westwards achieving the circumnavigation. Apart from any good reasons already provided here above, consider that Portugal and Spain have recently agreed to submit to the UNESCO a joint candidacy for the Magellan-Elcano expedition be granted the status of World Intangible cultural heritage. In any case Magellan's circumnavigation is not at all an option. I propose, considering all the above plus the insights provided in previous discussions above, to change the title to Magellan-Elcano Expedition. This outcome should settle the main controversies and issues at stake: 1. Ends the debate around the fact that Magellan did not achieve the circumnavigation but Elcano. 2. While Magellan led the expedition until his death, Elcano assumed command thereafter to complete the mission. 3. The event is today well known or depicted under that name 4. It follows the wikipedia practice of other articles on expeditions' titles which designate, precisely, the expedition name and not the outcome (see i.e. French Geodesic Mission to the Equator, Malaspina expedition, First voyage of James Cook, Expédition Particulière, United States Exploring Expedition, Challenger expedition, British Arctic Expedition or Great White Fleet Many thanks PLUS ULTRA CARLOS (talk) 03:45, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

None of these appear to be especially well known, from what I can see. A look through the "What links here" page found quite a few which referred to someone else, and I feel having the name point to a specific article contributed to these errors. I suggest making "Thomas Mostyn" a disambiguation page, and giving this one a more specific name. I took the name above from the start of the article, but alternative suggestions are welcome.

(Discuss)Bodhi TreeThe Bodhi tree – The inclusion of "The" can be used to distinguish between the one particular tree under which Gautama Buddha is said to have attained bodhi and the other trees that are called bodhi trees, e.g., all trees of the species Ficus religiosa or the trees that are direct descendants (e.g., the Mahabodhi tree or the Anandabodhi tree) or clones from cuttings (e.g., the Sri Maha Bodhi Tree or the Bodhi Tree in Honolulu) of the particular tree under which the Buddha sat. (See WP:THE: "If a term with a definite article has a different meaning with respect to the same term without the article, the term with the article can be used as the name of a Wikipedia article about that meaning.") Also, the sources are mixed about capitalization of "tree". So is the Wikipedia article. In fact most of the sources that I have checked use lowercase for "tree". Brittanica uses lowercase. The CNN article cited in the first sentence does too. In a web search, many instances that capitalize the word "tree" are doing so for the names of institutions and enterprises rather than for the name of this particular tree (e.g., Bodhi Tree Bookstore, Bodhi Tree Salon & Spa, Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, Bodhi Tree Juice Co., Bodhi Tree Massage and Skincare, Bodhi Tree Guesthouse & Studio, Bodhi Tree Educational Foundation, Bodhi Tree Cafe). When sources are mixed, Wikipedia generally prefers lowercase. But "Bodhi tree" (without "The") is more ambiguous, as it could refer either to this article or the article about the species of tree or one of the other individual trees. —⁠ ⁠BarrelProof (talk) 04:38, 8 June 2021 (UTC) —Relisting. Elli (talk | contribs) 16:07, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)Rio Grande ValleyRio Grande Valley (Texas) – * or Lower Rio Grande Valley (Texas) * Disambiguate between Rio Grande Valley (New Mexico). As quoted before:
"The name seems too general to be about one specific region of the Rio Grande Valley. I understand many people in that specific region calls it by this name, but I have lived all up and down this river as far south as El Paso, and literally everyone, everywhere in the settlements along the river in the US call their stretch the "Rio Grande Valley". It is used by locals, companies, even in local news1234. But very few valley dwellers outside this specific region and adjacent ones, other than the AP, have ever thought it would refer to the region specified in this article. The namespace Rio Grande Valley would serve far more to the average reader if it links to, or better yet, replaces the disambiguation page instead, as it does indeed give the impression that this is the only place to use this name for the river valley when it isn't."
Indeed, several pages erroneously link to this article when referencing other areas of the actual valley. Kehkou (talk) 12:36, 15 May 2021 (UTC) —Relisting. (t · c) buidhe 03:29, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

This is supported by an ngram search, though admittedly it is difficult to be sure of the results because of the lengthy formal name consisting of common city names.

(Discuss)Pervomayske, Rozdilna RaionPervomaiske, Odessa Oblast – Correct romanization per WP:UKR. These changes serve the article naming WP:CRITERIA of recognizability, naturalness, precision, conciseness, and consistency. These are all small settlements in Ukraine. The current article names have spellings according to a less-appropriate standard, have non-Ukrainian spelling, or are just quirky or misspelled. I have not tested to see if any of the subjects have only a single most WP:COMMONNAME, but if they do then it is most likely to correspond to our standard romanization. Each proposed spelling is romanized according to the Ukrainian National system, which derives the official Latin-alphabet spelling, has been adopted by the UNGEGN and BGN/PCGN (source of Ukrainian place-name spellings on the authoritative GeoNames database), and in each of these cases also corresponds to a variant of the widely used modified Library of Congress romanization. I confirmed Ukrainian names by looking at the corresponding article on Ukrainian Wikipedia. Checked each new title for conflicts and adjusted the title disambiguation. Some of these have been renamed previously, but without any discussion. (This is mass move request 2 of 2; see #Requested move 8 June 2021.)  —Michael Z. 21:40, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)List of contemporary Muslim scholars of IslamList of contemporary Islamic scholars – I suggest the page title is changed from 'List of contemporary Muslim scholars of Islam' to 'List of contemporary Islamic scholars'. Islamic scholar is a term in common usage to describe Muslim scholars of Islam, it is more concise and understood also the intro paragraph states that this is a list of Islamic scholars. It's like if you insisted on calling a washing machine a 'machine of washing', it would sound archaic and you would have to add the word 'clothes' to make clear what you were referring to. There is already a lack of consistency in this subject area. The page 'List of female Muslim scholars', doesn't use 'of Islam' in the title, so according to the title they may be scholars of anything, but the intro paragraph says that the list is of female scholars of Islam. The page 'List of Shia Muslim Islamic scholars', used the term Islamic scholars and the word 'Muslim' is also used in the title. It could be made more concise without losing clarity by changing it to 'List of Shia Islamic scholars'. According to WP:CRITERIA page titles should be recognizable, natural, precise, concise and consistent. Amirah talk 10:39, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)Edward I of EnglandEdward I – All biographies of Edward I, Edward II and Edward III cited in this article and found by me on Google Books call them Edward I, Edward II, and Edward III in the title, respectively. Examples include Prestwich's Edward I, Phillips' Edward II, and Ormrod's Edward III, all comprehensive biographies. They are virtually never called "of England" in reliable sources, and the reason might be that there is no need to label them as such. Indeed, Edward I, Edward II, and Edward III already redirect to Edward I of England, Edward II of England, and Edward III of England. Therefore I suggest that Wikipedia use the names that are overwhelmingly more common in reliable sources (per WP:COMMONNAME policy) and that are precise and concise (per WP:CONCISE and WP:PRECISE policies).

(Discuss)Voiced labialized-velar approximantVoiced labial–velar approximant – [w], [ʍ] and [ɥ] appear under the proposed names on the IPA chart. The articles about plosives were boldly moved from "stop" to "plosive" to make them in line with the IPA terminology last year (which I welcome and which was approved implicitly by others in this RM), yet the same user who moved the plosive articles reverted the proposed moves, saying "not coarticulated, but 2ary articulation". Although some instances of the sounds discussed may indeed be more accurately described as labialized velar/palatal than as co-articulated from a purely phonetic point of view, we do not know if this is true in all languages reported to have these sounds. When an underdocumented language is reported to have e.g. /w/ in its inventory and that's all we have to go by, there's no way to tell if it's better described as labialized velar or velarized labial, and if our article on [w] is named one way, we have no choice but to include that information either in no article about a phonetic sound or in the one named "labialized velar", which is misleading to readers at best and misrepresentative of the source at worst. Naming our articles using broader categories allows us to represent reliable sources more flexibly and thus more accurately. In fact that's what we already do in these articles about phonetic sounds. We might not know the exact specific phonetic configurations for each sound reported, but using the broad taxonomic categories employed by the IPA, we can stick to what's reported in our sources and provide finer language-specific details where available. This was also the motive for merging articles about "voiceless approximants", a category not all linguists accept, which made it impossible to classify some reports of sounds emphatically as either approximant or fricative. Moreover, the IPA defines the value of each letter not by specific physical attributes but by broad categories informed by the distinctive feature theory (IPA Handbook, pp. 37–8), and "[w] in one language might be revealed to be a velarized labial because it alternates with [b], yet be pronounced identically to [w] in another language that is revealed to be a labialized velar because it alternates with [g]" (Zsiga 2020: 122). † Except the IPA chart uses hyphens, not en dashes. The proposed names are consistent with the existing articles in Category:Labial–velar consonants etc. Also notice the inconsistency between the current names of the first article under discussion and the rest (hyphen vs. space).

The previous requested move above was withdrawn due to fear of miscategorization of redirects, but many redirects are already improperly categorized as {{R from related topic}} which would be fixed by this move.

(Discuss)Black dogBlack Dog – The concurrent Talk:Black Dog (song)#Requested move 27 May 2021 has highlighted the fact that among the 29 entries at the Black dog disambiguation page (with "Black Dog" redirecting to it), 25 entries use the uppercase "D" and only four entries use the lowercase "d". — Roman Spinner (talkcontribs) 22:02, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
(Discuss)Journey Beyond Three SeasJourney Beyond Three Seas (film) – Not PT. That would be A Journey Beyond the Three Seas. WP:SMALLDETAILS does not apply here, since the (in)definite articles are not distinguishing features. Both are titles of works and both are translations from a language without articles.

(Discuss)Dangerous (Michael Jackson album)Dangerous (album) – Primary topic by far. One of the best-selling albums of all time and it pulls up overwhelmingly more results than the other five subjects of the same name combined..— TheWikiholic (talk) 08:48, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)Colonial history of the city of CologneColonial history of Cologne – More concise title. It is obvious that Cologne is a city, so "the city of" is redundant. JIP | Talk 20:59, 19 May 2021 (UTC) —Relisting. (t · c) buidhe 06:20, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
(Discuss)Visual Basic .NETVisual Basic – As per WP:COMMONNAME, when people say "programming in Visual Basic" today, they are most likely referring to Visual Basic .NET, not VB6.

(Discuss)Template:ThinspaceTemplate:Thin space separated entries – Having two different templates with the only difference in name being different punctuation is highly confusing as seen at the recent TfD nomination. It is also listed as a bad practice at WP:TPN. The suggested name better reflects what this template does following the same naming convention as {{Br separated entries}} and {{Space separated entries}}. The current name should be turned into a redirect to {{Thin space}} after updating transclusions. --Trialpears (talk) 22:45, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

(Discuss)The Party that Teaches How to Not Pay the NHK License FeeThe Party to Protect People from Old Political Parties – The current name "The Party that Teaches How to Not Pay the NHK License Fee" is not the current name of the party, and it's not a common way of referring to the party in either English or Japanese.

(Discuss)Curtiss JN-4 JennyCurtiss JN Jenny – This article covers not only the JN-4, but all JN variants except the oddly specific Curtiss JN-6H. I don't think the JN variants are notable enough to have their own articles per WP:AIR/N, so I propose that this article be moved to cover the entire JN line and that the Curtiss JN-6H article be merged with this one.

(Discuss)Vichai → ? – No evidence that the 17th century King of Lan Xang is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC at this name. The dab page at Wichai has multiple people, all of whom are named Vichai, and therefore we should move that to the primary location. Suggestions on the proper rename for the King would be appreciated, by suggestion is Vichai, King of Lan Xang, but there's probably a style guide for monarch names.

(Discuss)List of Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl episodesPokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl – Consistent with the other Pokémon seasons' wikipedia titles that don't have "List of _____ episodes". Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl, Pokémon: Black & White, Pokémon: XY and Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon previously only weren't moved as these titles are ambiguous with the games they are named after. But since 2013, the Pokemon anime television series has been rebranded as "Pokemon the Series" (see the official Pokemon website anime section): * Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl (Pokémon season 10) is the first and titular season of the Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl * Pokémon the Series: Black and White (Pokémon season 14) is the first and titular season of the Pokémon the Series: Black and White (Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! in Japan) * Pokémon the Series: XY (Pokémon season 17) is the first and titular season of the Pokémon the Series: XY * Pokémon the Series: Sun and Moon (Pokémon season 20) is the first and titular season of the Pokémon the Series: Sun and Moon Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl (Pokémon season 10; originally known as Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl) and Pokémon the Series: Black and White (Pokémon season 14; originally known as Pokemon: Black and White) were retroactively given the prefix "The Series" since the Pokémon anime rebranding to "Pokémon the Series" in 2013.

(Discuss)Dáil ÉireannDáil – *This is the only topic that's called "Dáil" in English-language reliable sources, as you can tell from the Google Scholar results, and therefore is WP:PRECISE. *It satisfies recognizability as it's the WP:COMMONNAME of this institution, which throughout its history has been much more commonly referred to as the "Dáil" or "Dail"[54] *It is also more WP:CONCISE than using the full official name. *A similar discussion resulted in renaming the Welsh parliament to Senedd.

(Discuss)2015 Wootton Bassett SPAD incident2015 Wootton Bassett rail incident – The first three WP:CRITERIA for a good title are quite rightly recognizability, naturalness, precision – in this order. 'SPAD' means nothing to any non-railway-expert (arguably the vast majority of WP readers) and is ambiguous even for geeks, considering that it's also the name of a family of famous World War I fighter aircraft. If the reader has to open the article to figure out that it's talking about railway mishaps, then the article has a poor title. Deeday-UK (talk) 18:24, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
