University of Munich[change source]

I am planning on creating the University of Munich page, but I think that the article should be located at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, which is its full name, and we can have a redirect at University of Munich. If this is OK, can somebody change the most wanted changes to reflect the name change, or should it wait until I create the article and the redirect? Thesixthstaff (talk) 21:25, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I think not. We should have the simplest and most commonly used title for our pages. There are many examples where a formal title is far too long for general use. The reasoning is similar to that for personal names: the title should be long enough to avoid ambiguity, but not more. Of course, the official full title or names should be given in the intro. We should actively seek ways to make our text simpler, and easier to read. There are many examples on our zoology pages where we have preferred a well-known common name to a longer and not so well known latin binomial. Macdonald-ross (talk) 09:18, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Page addition[change source]

I added a new page, Heavy Water. Please cross it out. PokestarFan (talk) (My Contribs) 22:49, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

@PokestarFan: What do you mean by "cross it out"? I deleted that page because it was a dicdef. Even if it hadn't been, a page called "heavy water" should be about the form of water, not about a slang term. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:52, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
@PokestarFan: It crosses it out automatically if the page actually exists. In this case, it does not. Look at your own link, it's red. The page was deleted under A1 - little or no meaning. If you want help, I'm sure either Yottie or I, or both of us even, would be glad to help on a page in your userspace. --Lithorien TalkChanges 22:56, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
