  • To list a technical request: edit the Uncontroversial technical requests subsection and insert the following code at the bottom of the list, filling in pages and reason:

    {{subst:RMassist|current page title|new page title|reason=reason for move}}

    This will automatically insert a bullet and include your signature. Please do not edit the article's talk page.
  • If you object to a proposal listed in the uncontroversial technical requests section, please move the request to the Contested technical requests section, append a note on the request elaborating on why, and sign with ~~~~. Consider pinging the requester to let them know about the objection.

  • Wings (1990 TV series)  Wings (TV series) (currently a redirect to Wings (disambiguation)) (move · discuss) – The title is confusing because while the show did begin in 1990 it lasted eight seasons until 1997. The name implies it's only 1 season long or is named more like a film would be if released in a single year such as 1990. Naming conventions using a single year usually only applies to films, not TV shows unless they lasted one season. Even Wings (1990s TV series) would make more sense. In any case, there is a film called Wings, but no TV shows. And Wings (TV series) is simpler and makes more sense, distinguishes it from films and anything else, but doesn't keep it anchored to the year of its first season, and should make it easier and simpler to find and more accessible. The show originally was called Wings (TV series) but was changed due to other shows being called Wings - but having checked there's really only two, both British shows, both clearly distinguishd as being British or being a 1988 single episode. This would be the primary TV show known as Wings, with the others being distinguished as a British show and a 1988 episode, hence why I think this one should move back to Wings (TV series) or at the very least Wings (US TV series) and not be anchored to 1990. If there's any issue, then perhaps Wings (1990s TV series) would make more sense but I still think Wings (TV series) should work as others are distinguished already and this is the main, most famous one. 2001:BB6:4E52:7D00:B92E:9951:AE28:C772 (talk) 07:20, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • It should be the year of release, as per WP:NCTVUS. I can't comment if it's the primary topic in this case or not though. -Kj cheetham (talk) 10:36, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      1990 isn't really the year of release, though. First release, yes, but it aired 1990 - 1997 so all those years are technically year of release. I usually only see one year in brackets following a movie title, not a TV series. Most TV series simply say (TV series) or (US series). For example, the other Wings I mentioned says (British series), no year mentioned there either. 2001:BB6:4E52:7D00:B92E:9951:AE28:C772 (talk) 11:46, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      WP:NCTVUS literally says "Prefix the year of release or program debut – (1997 TV series)". There are numerous examples of this, e.g. there's a couple at V (TV series). -Kj cheetham (talk) 12:38, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      Hmm, well I still think there's several examples also of it just being (TV series), (British series), etc. The example you linked to is a TV show that only ran for a single season and one that only ran for 2 whereas Wings ran for 8 years. Also, the example you linked to was two iterations of the same series (different years) so the year makes sense in that naming convention. Whereas Wings stands alone and the two other Wings are a British counterpart and a single episode show, unrelated, both already having suffixes like (British series) to distinguish them. So having said all that, I still think in this case, for Wings, (TV series) or (US series) makes the most sense for it. Not sure what else I can say other than all I have. There are some examples of TV shows with the year but it's not the norm other than in specific cases like you mentioned or where there's several shows. Most still go under (TV series) or (US series), etc. Years seem more common for movies like I said, even if some TV shows use it too. For Wings, I've laid all the reasons why it show be what I suggested. That's all I have to say about it. Thanks 2001:BB6:4E52:7D00:B92E:9951:AE28:C772 (talk) 13:42, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      I'm not saying it must include the date, I'm saying if a date is needed for disamb the proper way is to state the year it debuted, not all the years it ran for. What matters more is what is the primary topic, which probably needs a full WP:RM. -Kj cheetham (talk) 13:55, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      Ok thanks. 2001:BB6:4E52:7D00:B92E:9951:AE28:C772 (talk) 14:18, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Noting though. -Kj cheetham (talk) 10:39, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oppose target is a redirect to dab listing:
Wings (1990 TV series), an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 1990 to 1997
Wings (1988 TV program), a 1988 American documentary on Discovery Channel
Wings (British TV series), a 1977–1978 British drama series that aired on BBC
Therefore the article is at the correct title already. Certainly should not have been attempted as an uncontroversial move request. And 2001:BB6:4E52:7D00:B92E:9951:AE28:C772 you are evidently a practiced editor, were you aware that you are not logged in? In ictu oculi (talk) 10:53, 2 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Draft:Seghatoleslam  Seghatoleslam (currently a redirect to Mirza Ali Aqa Tabrizi) (move · discuss) – After careful consideration and improvements made to the draft, I believe that it is ready for publication as an official Wikipedia page. The content has been thoroughly researched and provides valuable information on the topic. The redirect link on the page "Seghatoleslam" refers to a separate Wikipedia article and is not directly related to "Draft:Seghatoleslam". However, I have reviewed the "Seghatoleslam" page and can confirm that it accurately reflects the content of my draft. I believe that readers who are interested in the topic of "Seghatoleslam" may find my draft informative and relevant. To clarify, the "Mirza Ali-Aqa Tabrizi" page is not directly related to the "Draft:Seghatoleslam" page and is referenced in my draft for informational purposes only (reference 24).

    With only 75 edits, I suggest you wait on the AFC review process which you initiated. Briefly looking at your draft, I see several glaring WP:MOS issues that needed to be addressed. I will make a comment on the draft. - UtherSRG (talk) 16:48, 2 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • ABSA Cup  Absa Cup (currently a redirect to ABSA Cup) (move · discuss) – Since 2019, the competition has been paraded in the sources indicated as "Absa Cup", not "ABSA Cup" as its sponsor since then de-emphasized its "acronymic" style/styling.
