MOVED AT THE APPROPRIATE NOTICEBOARD

Robert John Abercromby, 7th Baronet

I noticed that you re-directed Robert John Abercromby, 7th Baronet to Sir Robert John Abercromby, 7th Baronet. Could you let me know why, please as I thought honorifics were not supposed to be used for article titles? Thanks. SagaciousPhil - Chat 12:13, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Greetings! Yes you are right that generally, "sir" and such honorifics are not included in article titles, but -per wikipedia guidelines- baronets are excepted because you can either call them both "sir" and "baronet" or nither.

Examples:

  • Sir Robert John Abercromby, 7th Baronet (fine)
  • Robert John Abercromby (fine)
  • Robert John Abercromby, 7th Baronet (not fine)

And of course, this does not apply only to article titles, but to article text, too.--The Theosophist (talk) 12:20, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thank you! I don't create many articles but will try to remember this when/if I do any more in a similar vein. SagaciousPhil - Chat 12:33, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
You're most welcome! Please check WP:PEER for the full wikipedia guidelines on peers and baronets.--The Theosophist (talk) 12:35, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Suffragette

"A woman is a suffragette, while the male equivalent is suffragist." You are demonstrating your ignorance of the topic. In British history, the terms "suffragette" and "suffragist" are commonly used to refer to two distinct factions at the time in the struggle for votes for women, with the former term used to refer to the more radical group [1]. You appear to be falling for the etymological fallacy. The suffix "ette" is a derogatory diminutive that was taken up as a badge of honour by members of the movement. In other words, it is a de facto proper noun. Both men and women could be suffragettes or suffragists. Paul B (talk) 20:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
