The result of the move request was: Not Moved because consensus exists that Taiwan is the primary topic of ROC. (non-admin closure) >>> Extorc.talk 08:19, 7 July 2022 (UTC)
Republic of China (disambiguation) → Republic of China – The previous discussion was 10 years ago, I guess that the consensus has appeared since then. There is no primary topic for "Republic of China", neither Taiwan nor Republic of China (1912-1949). BlackBony (talk) 20:31, 23 June 2022 (UTC) — Relisting.

- oppose. The country is commonly Taiwan but formally Republic of China, a name which is used in some contexts due to its odd political circumstance. When someone says or writes "Republic of China" they are overwhelmingly referring to Taiwan. It's used far less to refer to the period before 1949 which is normally called "China", or "Warlord China", "Nationalist China" when referring to particular aspects of it. I see no evidence anything's changed. If anything pre-1949 China is a further decade in the past so even more remote from current thinking.22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:39, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
- Oppose Taiwan currently exists. France won't take you to an article on the Third Republic, Canada is about the independent country, not the colony; Republic of China likewise should be about the country that currently exists. Red Slash 17:35, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
- Oppose – Republic of China absolutely refers to the current incarnation of the country (commonly known as Taiwan). Having it at a disambiguation page is not helpful at all. This is why we have hatnotes. cookie monster 755 02:25, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
- Taiwan is the primary topic. Oppose move.O.N.R. (talk) 03:04, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
- Support This clearly refers to two separate concepts that are often confused together (and stems out of the mess we had with the articles in the first decade of Wikipedia) and having the disambiguation page will make it clearer. Taiwan is increasingly using "Republic of China" less and less in how it presents to the wider world - e.g. passport covers - and searches for the term bring up both concepts so neither is unambiguously the use.

- Oppose Usage of the term still appears overwhelmingly to refer to the current subject and primary topic.--Yaksar (let's chat) 14:30, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
