Offences Against the Person Act 1875Offences against the Person Act 1875 – This page should be moved back to its original location for the same reasons that I gave in this edit when requesting that the article on the Offences against the Person Act 1861 should be moved back to its correct location. The only difference is that in this case, the short title is legally authorised by section 1 of the Offences against the Person Act 1875 itself, and not by the Short Titles Act 1896. James500 (talk) 04:57, 21 March 2018 (UTC) --Relisted.  Paine Ellsworth  put'r there  18:58, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Additional reasoning for this proposal is given in this edit, which is that both COMMONNAME and IAR require this move. James500 (talk) 23:39, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
  • You are gently reminded to adhere to WP:RM#Commenting in a requested move, which lets us know that, "Nomination already implies that the nominator supports the name change, and nominators should refrain from repeating this recommendation on a separate bulleted line." relister,  Paine Ellsworth  put'r there  03:34, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I've unbolded the comment and removed all references to a recommendation. That brings the comment into line with what the information page essay or how to essay recommends. James500 (talk) 05:47, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
See here for analysis of that logic. James500 (talk) 19:11, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

From the related current RM cited above: No one disputes the requestor's logic, when it comes to relevant legal documents; that simply is not connected to the capitalisation of a single letter in a Wikipedia article title, and if we start following this kind of logic, we complicate existing rules further. [1] Very well put, and equally applicable here. But perhaps best to discuss at that other RM. Andrewa (talk) 21:55, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
