This discussion point referred to the old title "Guadalupe-Hidalgo, Treaty of".

Would it make more sense to store this article at Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo and then fill in the metadata page "abc" field with "Guadalupe-Hidalgo, Treaty of" for alphabetization purposes? This would make wikilinking in other articles a whole lot easier. --Joe Quick 18:18, 23 November 2007 (CST)

we have a redirect already in place so there are no linking problems. "Treaty of...." or "Battle of ..." is poor form, in my opinion.Richard Jensen 22:34, 23 November 2007 (CST)
Redirects do create more work for the server, but not that much really, so this isn't a big issue. I'm not clear on why you think that "Treaty of..." is poor form though. This is what the Encyclopedia Britannica uses. The form "..., Treaty of" is appropriate for an index, but CZ isn't an index and alphabetization in index-like parts of CZ is accomplished by the "abc" field of the metadata page. --Joe Quick 00:22, 26 November 2007 (CST)

Page moved. Title is now "Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo." Russell D. Jones 12:01, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
