Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you are unable to complete a move for technical reasons, you can request technical help below. This is the correct page if you tried to move a page, but you got an error message saying something like "You do not have permission to move this page, for the following reasons:..." or "The/This page could not be moved, for the following reason:..."

  • 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.
  • If your technical request is contested, or if a contested request is left untouched without reply, create a requested move on the article talk and remove the request from the section here. The fastest and easiest way is to click the "discuss" button at the request, save the talk page, and remove the entry on this page.

Contested technical requests[edit]

Move from uncontested, where it should NEVER have been put. This name was confirmed in a PROPER WP:RM discussion in 2015, and should not be moved without another one. Johnbod (talk) 16:50, 4 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Another dodgy proposal that should NOT be in uncontested. What discussion, where? Do a proper WP:RM. You can bet there will be opposition. Neither of thyese two REMOTELY meet the condition for "uncontested moves" that "It seems unlikely that anyone would reasonably disagree with the move".
