Requested movesEdit

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved by Materialscientist. --BDD (talk) 18:28, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

– Invert the redirections as the consensus and guidelines recommend not to capitalise the common (vernacular) names of species. See Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#Bird common name decapitalisation and Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Animals, plants, and other organisms. Coreyemotela (talk) 09:05, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Support, finally. If this is proceeding according to some category-walking patterns, be it taxonomic or geographical, that seems like a good idea. Anyone who's taking on the downcasing in the actual article text, please see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Birds#The conversion is challenging; there are devils in the details. There's talk elsewhere of using bots or AWB scripts to move a lot of these articles and decapitalize within them, but I suspect this will be difficult to sort out, and the work might as well get started manually while that is worked up. A deeper question is how many of these are at IOC names that are not actually the WP:COMMONNAMEs, and thus need a different kind of move, for article titling policy reasons (many IOC names are made up by IOC and are unattested outside their own materials. Sometimes the scientific name is most common, in other cases other English-language or assimilated non-English names are common and the IOC ones are neologisms. In most cases the IOC names are fine.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  19:48, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't see any reason to formally request moves that are just to comply with the recent MOS change. Lots of them are happening without requests. —JerryFriedman (Talk) 21:09, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
