Requested move 16 December 2019Edit

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review after discussing it on the closer's talk page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

The result of the move request was: the previous discussion in 2016 that resulted in the use of "Taiwan" titles is at Talk:2016 Taiwanese general election#Should we change the titles of those election articles from "Republic of China xxx elections" to "Taiwanese xxx elections"? and resulted in a consensus to move the articles to titles using "Taiwan" or "Taiwanese", but no strong affirmation of one form or the other. Here, there is consensus to move the pages to titles using "Taiwanese", per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 06:45, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Support per the WP:NC-GAL naming guideline for elections, which states that the adjectival form should be used. Number 57 22:35, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support for the same reason.--Aréat (talk) 14:18, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support for the proposed change. The proposal would make the article titles grammatically correct which would be an improvement. Île flottante (talk) 10:19, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support for the change. Other articles use adjectival form while this one doesn't which makes no sense for me. ShadZ01 (talk) 16:26, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose: While the MOS does call for the adjectival form of the country to be used, not all election articles use the same naming format, with US and UK elections being the very notable exceptions. I am going to say that in this case, we should not fix what is not broken. Kiteinthewind Leave a message!
  • Support as per WP:NCGAL. For individual elections and referendums, use the format "Date [adjectival form of country name] type election/referendum", and "Taiwan" does not seem to justify a similar, exceptional case such as done for United Kingdom/United States elections.

Removing Soong from infoboxEdit

As one pointed out, it is standard practice to exclude candidates with fewer than 5% votes unless second place. Ythlev (talk) 04:35, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Oppose: It is not based on any guideline. Soong is on every major media outlet. Lmmnhn (talk) 02:00, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
It is based on a longstanding consensus. I would suggest raising the issue at WT:E&R if you wish to deviate from it. Number 57 12:41, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Soong is still in the 2012 TW Presidential Election article with less than 5% of the votes. Jargo Nautilus (talk) 08:58, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Soong scored better in 2020 than in 2012. He should be either re-added to 2020 or removed from 2012. Impru20talk 12:13, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
