Closing instructions

The discussion about merging at the village pump is now archived (here). The vast majority of those who expressed an opinion considered the system based on the current templates and this process (Wikipedia:Proposed mergers) to be inadequate.

The implementation of a new automated system is being discussed at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Merge/Archive 2#Automation of merge proposals. More participation in that discussion is welcome.

This page lists proposed article mergers as a supplement to the merge categories and templates; it does not replace any of the other steps in the merger process. Please add the appropriate merger tag(s) to the articles before listing them here.

Category mergers should not be proposed here. Please see Wikipedia:Categories for discussion.

Template mergers should not be proposed here. Please see Wikipedia:Templates for discussion.

How to propose a merger[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

There are three types of mergers on Wikipedia:

  1. mergers that are so obviously necessary and appropriate that no one is expected to object;
  2. mergers that would benefit from discussion with the other editors at the affected articles about whether and/or how to perform the merge; and
  3. mergers that are controversial or potentially difficult to carry out, and therefore need assistance from uninvolved editors in determining whether to merge the pages.

If the pages that you would like to merge fall into the first group, then it is not necessary to propose a merger at all. You should boldly do the merger now, without formally proposing it. (In the event that someone unexpectedly objects, then the merger can be undone easily, and you can formally propose the merger for discussion at that time.)

If a formal discussion is wanted, then proposing a merger can be done in three steps:

  1. Create a place for discussion. Go to the Talk Page (also known as the discussion page) of the TARGET ARTICLE (the one you want to merge to) and create a section (eg: "Merger proposal") to discuss the merger. If there's already a discussion on the talk page regarding the merger, you can omit this step. Whether the discussion is new or old, make sure the discussion section names all articles involved and links to them. The section name can be anything that includes the word merge (for example ==Proposed merger==).
  2. Put one of the merger tags at the top of the articles you wish to be merged. The templates {{Merge from}} and {{Merge to}}, or {{merge}} are the most common ones. Remember to make sure that the Discuss link in each tag points to the section you've created in step 1 (this is to prevent having two separate discussions on different talk pages).
  3. If the proposed merge is controversial or potentially difficult to carry out, follow the directions under #Requests for assistance and feedback to add it to the list.

Many bold mergers are performed each day. Of the mergers that are formally proposed, about 95% fall into the second category, of wanting discussion or practical assistance from the editors at the articles that are to be merged. The remaining 5% of formally proposed mergers are on contentious topics or are controversial for one reason or another. Only this small fraction is listed at the bottom of this page as instructed in step #3.

Requests for assistance and feedback[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

If you need outside feedback regarding mergers that are either tricky or of a controversial nature, please do the following:

  • Tag the article as shown above
  • Create a discussion as shown above
  • Notify the talk page of the appropriate Wikiproject to get knowledgable people to comment on it.
  • If there is consensus to merge, but the merge is difficult, contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Merge for assistance.

For other topics:

Don't post here if you are not willing to do the merge yourself. We will provide you assistance in how to complete the merge if you are unsure how to do it.

NEW REQUESTS[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

If you need assistance with proposing a merge, list it below and someone will make sure it's properly listed. Note that this will not get the merge completed, as there is a large merge backlog. This can also be used if an old proposal needs more discussion. We will attempt to get more people to comment on it.

Once a merge is listed properly, move it to the "Completed requests" or "Awaiting consensus" sections below as appropriate.

Please list new requests at the BOTTOM of this section. Use the edit summary–List at least one of the articles' titles. Please remember to sign each listing or comment by typing: ~~~~

Not sure what you're requesting here. This redirect took place in 2004. Please clarify. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 14:13, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

3rd Regiment Arkansas Volunteer Infantry (African Descent) to 56th Regiment Infantry U.S. Colored Troops. Both articles are about the same unit. The unit was formed as the 3rd Regiment Arkansas Volunteer Infantry (African Descent) and re-designated as 56th Regiment Infantry U.S. Colored Troops on March 11, 1864.

AWAITING CONSENSUS[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

  • Current events seem to preclude a merger at this time. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 21:30, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Ditto: my first merge proposal. I think I tagged it right (followed WP:Merge) but would just like to have someone experienced look it over. Merge Beyond Ex-Gay into Ex-ex-gay. I also plan to check History and notify prominent past editors (if any) on their Talk pages, but other than that, I'm done I think. Feedback (if needed) to my Talk page, thanks! Mathglot (talk) 21:11, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
>>>Discussion here<<<. Seems non-controversial and probably should happen. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 21:30, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
  • I found it uncomfortable to have both articles Southern Pacific class GS-6 and Southern Pacific 4460 existing. Probably, it's best to move the latter to the former. The articles are too similar, and I also want to see original and uncited content to be handled (the nicknames, for example). Ctempire (talk) 21:21, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Tagged and awaiting consensus.

  • Similar to the first two requests above - my first proposal, being Locator outer marker into Marker beacon. I think I've tagged both pages correctly, but if someone could have a look and possibly execute the merger if it seems unnecessary to discuss it, would be much appreciated.

  • I've just tagged Ayran, proposal is to merge Doogh into Ayran, both being the same drink essentially (water, yoghurt and salt). If it seems pointless, discuss - Note the Ayran article's history section for the unseriousness of the argument. --Vitilsky (talk) 18:30, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I've proposed merging HMGS-South into Historical_Miniatures_Gaming_Society. I'm not certain the author is paying attention to talk pages, and may be using the article as a soapbox for their own organization. This is my first merge, so any guidance and assistance would be welcomed. I have a proposed merge in my sandbox. BirdbrainedPhoenix (talk) 16:25, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

  • History of Rotherham United F.C. was proposed for a merger 3 years ago. Not much discussion went on, so I am asking for feedback on whether you think the page should be merged into Rotherham United F.C. or not. Please note I am trying to get the latter article featured so detailed information and references will be of massive help from that page. And apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section, I'm new to this type of stuff on wikipedia.

  • Brecht's poetry into Bertolt Brecht. The article is organized as an essay, the title is not properly formatted, hints of violating policies regarding original research. Currently there is very little discussion of Brecht's poetry at the Bertold Brecht biography article--a rather strange omission that stands out given his prominence in early 20th century poetry. Join the discussion >>>Here<<<. (NOTE: First time doing this here, so please make sure I did it right.)
  • Allegheny_Energy into FirstEnergy. As both articles indicate, the latter bought the former company over two years ago. I was going to add some content on a current news issue about one of their facilities, but the now-defunct company is now part of the larger business which is generating that news. See the URL for AE which redirects to FE.--Trep26 (talk) 02:26, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Not done. This proposal involves converting a list into a full-blown article. There are problems with this in that the list is transcluded into List of newspapers in the United States#Wyoming. Note the comment on the top of that file--a similar comment is on other analogous state lists as well:

 !-- Note to future editors: this article is copied by transclusion into the article "List of newspapers in the United States". Only include links here unless you plan to rewrite that article to use part of the list here, such as for listing only major papers on the main page. Include anything relevant to this page only - things that should only show on this page and not be carried back to the main article - by placing it between blocks. Also, make sure there is nothing - no CR - before a if one is not to be included in the upstream article, or occurs after the , or an extra blank line will be sent back to the calling article

The apparently reverted merge and re-opened discussion is duplicated above (in March 2013).
  • Mattel v. MCA Records should be merged with Barbie Girl - A WP:BOLD merge was undone by User:TJRC, citing "court case is more than song, also defamation; having a separate article allows legal issues to be discussed that would be off-topic here." This is an invalid rationale being that the lawsuit happened as a direct result of the song making fun of Barbie and bearing its name. Had the song been named something else, it would not have happened. Since the lawsuit has been settled, it is very unlikely that any new information will come up in the near future (even if that was the case, a merge can easily be undone). Starting a discussing would be rather pointless because Mattel v. MCA Records is a low class article not watched by many editors and had minimal edits since its creation over three years ago. This is how the merged article looks like and it seems perfectly okay by me. Before it is done again, though, I suggest you speak one-on-one with User:TJRC because he will likely revert it, being the only editor opposing a merge of any kind.

This is probably the wrong noticeboard for your request, as the merge has already happened (even though it was subsequently reversed). Have/Did you start(ed) a discussion along these lines at the article Talk? That should be a first step, then you would have Third Opinion or Comment requests available to you. From the results of that forum, the article can be brought to Mediation, Arbitration, or even AfD if warranted. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 00:45, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

There is a discussion on talk page: Talk:Araeomolis#Merger_Proposal. I strongly oppose merger. Ruigeroeland (talk) 15:05, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
[edit conflict] This seems to be a contentious proposal as a near edit-war has broken out over just tagging the articles for discussion. I started to tag the articles, and then realized they had already been tagged several times, each having been subsequently removed. I'm not going to waste my time to further tag them all. I posted a list of the affected articles at the discussion sight. (It may be better to take this to AfD.) GenQuest "Talk to Me" 15:17, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Requesting merge of User:MoonSwan999/sandbox into The Liverpool Herald to maintain editing history of my sandbox. This sandbox was created as part of an editing workshop today WP:GLAM/SLNSW and other people offsite assisted in it. We didn't know that the article already existed at the start. So, the content in the sandbox can overwrite the whole content of the article, but we don't want to lose the edit history of either. Please ask user:Wittylama if there's any problem. Sincerely, MoonSwan999 (talk) 04:50, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes, please can an admin history merge the sandbox into the article? We took a copy into the sandbox and edited it there with the intent to dump it back at the end, but in the end multiple editors were involved in the sandbox editing.

  • Jazzy Jordan is the Executive Vice President of Verity Gospel Music Group. The entire Jazzy Jordan article consists of 1) Jordan's résumé (including career accomplishments and "early life"), 2) two of Jordan's personal ventures ("Jordan Entertainment Group", which never got off the ground, and a one-year Indy 500 car co-ownership), and 3) successful VGMG albums that occurred while Jordan was with the company. This person, in my opinion, is entirely non-notable. A deletion discussion a year ago never gained any traction -- because no one cared enough about the article to bother even starting a talk page.

  • Anna Månsdotter and Yngsjö murder - An IP user recently merged the two articles (and did it pretty well), but this was soon reverted by User:BabbaQ because nothing was discussed first. However, after seeing how the merged article looks like, I think it is a good idea to merge them again. The articles have almost the same information and are not that long in length. In fact, very little is known about Mrs. Mansdotter other than her involvement in Yngsjo's murder. Had it not been for this, no one would know who she is today. Because both articles have blank talk pages and a low number of edits since their creation, starting a discussion would be pointless since few people are monitoring them. This is a case where merging through WP:Bold is an effective solution. The Legendary Ranger (talk) 17:43, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
    Merge restored I wholeheartedly agree with everything above and have restored the merge. See WP:Bureaucracy, WP:Bold and WP:IAR for rationale for this well-done merge. Ego White Tray (talk) 03:46, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

• I need help moving the Controversy section of the Joan Juliet Buck into either the Asma al-Assad article and/or the Criticism section of Vogue. It overwhelms the profile. Buck seems to have been commissioned for the piece by Vogue, al-Assad's husband is responsible for many atrocities in his own county, and these points that are lost by keeping it in under Joan Juliet Buck.--Aichikawa (talk) 18:17, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Essentially, what we are trying to do here is create a new master page, or super-categorisation, for all two cylinder engines leading to sub- or child pages for individual configurations.

The intention here is to resolve a problem that has arisen relating to the three main groups of 'non-V' or 'non-flat' twins, i.e. transverse or parallel twins, inline or longitudinal twins, and tandem twins. At present three configurations are being shoehorned into a single article called "Straight-two engine", which arguably is a far more obscure and minor terminology for some engine configurations and not used widely by manufacturers. The previously unreferenced topic being started by a non-native English speaker, sometime ago and the preponderance of references suggesting this does not meet Wikipedia naming conventions, as per WP:NAME; Recognizability, Naturalness, Precision, Conciseness, Consistency, English language use etc.
The idea is as sufficient content arises, new child page can be developed off the new parent. --Bridge Boy (talk) 19:11, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
