This page is for the requesting of page moves by normal users. The average user's ability to move pages has been rescinded due to frequent abuse by vandals; as such, users will need to submit requests (similar in nature to those on Speedy Deletions and Protections) for pages to be moved by a sysop.

Guidelines for requesting a Page Move

Copy the template below (Or just type it), replace the text in red with the relevant details, and paste the template under the Move Request Queue heading. A day after a sysop has taken action on the request, move requests should be moved to the Archive.

BLADES IS WATCHIN' and I SEE YOU, CHOCOLATE MAN!

Yonn put in a move request for these back in september and it was cycled then. However checking into the pages I'd like to make a case for them being moved to the user's subpages again. These are fine articles, but both pages are the sole creation of User:Blades, and are essentially self-promotions for him and his group. While the more ubiquitous STREETS IS WATCHIN' can be considered a legitimate urban dead phenomenon, in my travels in UD I've yet to encounter the Blades tag and I'd be surprised if anyone but Blades is tagging it.
Furthermore, if every bit of graffiti is allowed to have it's own page in the mainspace it kinda opens the door for every group or user with a spray can and a wiki account to create one. Not saying there's going to be a flood of these articles, but it would be nice to have some clear precedent on this. We already have the Great Graffiti page for this kind of stuff.
There are a small handful of incoming links that would have to be redirected (user signature and streets is watchin), but it should be a fairly straightforward move. Other than that, there's nothing stopping the user from linking to these pages under Great Graffiti or even making redirects for the two search phrases to his userspace if he feels that people are searching for these and he would be losing a lot of incoming traffic by the move.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 06:15, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

I wholeheartedly support this, but as I was the one who put up the request last time, and it was over-ruled, I'll let somebody else voice their opinion first. I've seen the first of this in game, but only on one square in South Blythville, and I'm certain he sprayed it himself.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 19:38, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
With no objections, I've done it.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:29, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

I somehow missed this but I REALLY think the Blades page should stay. It's fuckin everywhere, for gods sake. The chocolate man one is rubbish though. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 23:48, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

To UDWiki:Administration/Arbitration/Yonnua_Koponen_vs._Misanthropy. Note the underscore before "Misanthropy". I know, it's minor, but Mis was being lazy on IRC and told me to take it here. :P Aichon 01:27, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

User created page in mainspace rather than userspace. User has been informed on his talk page. ~Vsig.png 07:09, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Done.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 08:35, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

AoFC Building Information Center

It's a BIC for buildings in the region of Fort Creedy. I'd either like it as a subpage of Alliance of Fort Creedy (as it's their page) or of Building Information Center, if we feel it's transcended beign a group subpage. I can handle links if necessary.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 12:58, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

As you said, it's a group page and should be in their space. Aichon 19:58, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Cool. Basically I wanted opinions on whether or not it constituted a BIC page, or if it should still be considered a group page.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:06, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Gotcha, and yeah, a BIC subpage would hopefully be broadly useful to the population as a whole, but this one is targeted at the group's area of operations, and it was made for their own purposes, so it makes sense to keep it with them. Aichon 20:37, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Done, and moved to Alliance of Fort Creedy/Building Information Center.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:22, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
