Talk page of "Roast turkey (American)" after the main page was moved to a Recipes subpage.

This revision shows the talk page as it was when the page was copied to the talk page of "Roast turkey" (newly created). It is at the top of the talk page following this one.

The page now shows the discussion after this move (by copying).

Hayford, you didn't discuss this before doing it, and I believe renaming is just as much an issue as large deletes. Now, this is not to say there couldn't be a multicultural article on roast turkey, but the procedure bothers me.

Mary, once others have contributed articles, no non-Editor can call for deletion unless the article meets one of the specific criteria for removal by Constables. The Editors have a broader range of reasons for deletion, but -- trust me -- I have, as an Editor, sometimes had to argue long and hard to get a deletion. Howard C. Berkowitz 17:10, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Howard, the way the article was written by Peter and various people it no longer had *any* connection to American turkey. The article was now completely free of ethnocentricism. Read it. It would be as strange to keep the (American) in the title as would would be have an article called Roast beef (English) merely because it said in the article that English people like eating it. In any case, it was *I*, way back in the dark ages of this article, who originally MOVED it to Roast turkey (American), BECAUSE it was ethnocentric. Now that it isn't, there's no reason to keep that word in the title. Please now go read the article itself and then come back and tell me that I shouldn't have done what I did. Thanks!

Thank you Hayford for your most gracious and diplomatic response. You are a class act! Also, you are a fine example of what I suspect a good Citizendium and wiki contributor should be. Thanks so much for all your help. Now I'm back to gardening...Mary Ash 17:34, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
And I forgot to add: It was because of everyone's editorial advice that I was able to learn how to expand the article. Thanks again!Mary Ash 17:36, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Hayford, did the recipes tab go missing in the move? David Finn 17:42, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I'm just about trying to restore it. Or recreate it. Hope it's easy! Hayford Peirce 17:43, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Ah, thanks and good luck! David Finn 17:44, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, Hayford, you acted in a rush, and now the situation is even more confused than it was before. For instance, if these pages get deleted then the Recipes subpage and the archived talk page will be orphaned. If you wanted to change the title you should have moved the page and not copied its content. Moreover, why copying the content of this talk page to the other one? It is not related to the content there (but to the cluster here). Thus I will now remove the speedydelete templates now, and we will discuss how to resolve this. --Peter Schmitt 17:47, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
I initially *tried* to Move it -- but was told that "Roast turkey" already existed -- which it did, as a Redirect. So it couldn't be Moved, because I don't have the powers any longer to DELETE the earlier Roast turkey. So that's why I copied everything and asked for speedy deletes. Now, however, we have TWO separate Recipe tabs. Identical contents, however. Hayford Peirce 17:50, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Since these were only redirects without a history the move would have worked if you checked "update redirects" (I think). If not then one has delete (or request to delete) the redirect first ...
The two tabs are shown because you incorrectly filled in the Metadata: tab1 has to be left empty! (we recently discussed this!)
The Recipes subpage could have been moved -- its place was empty!

Let me know when you need things deleted once you decide what needs to move where and when. D. Matt Innis 18:22, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

(unindent) As far as I can tell, Matt, all the Roast turkey (American) stuff can be now be deleted EXCEPT THIS PAGE -- all the other stuff has been copied to the Roast turkey main article, Talk page, and Recipes tab, and Metadata. So only this talk here could be copied (onto the other Talk page maybe?). And then the whole cluster can be Gone with the Wind. Thanks! Hayford Peirce 18:58, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Put speedydeletes on them for me. Are you sure you don't want me to merge histories on some of these? D. Matt Innis 00:26, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Now all the pages have their own history and therefore should not be deleted, but merged or archived. See Talk:Roast_turkey#Turkey and allthat. --Peter Schmitt 00:32, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Hayford Peirce 17:19, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Hayford, I don't especially disagree with the new title. My concern, after several other recent experience, is that a move is at least as disruptive as a deletion of 50 words or more. Using that example, it is my opinion that proposed renamings need to be preannounced and quite possibly get a consensus. While you are certainly a content contributor here, I'm also sensitive to unilateral renaming/move by people not involved in the content, especially who are not also Editors of an applicable workgroup. Howard C. Berkowitz 19:28, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Apologies

I didn't intend to delete anything.

All in all, though, I think I'm going to move my attention to other articles. Turkey related things are coming off my watchlist. Howard C. Berkowitz 00:57, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
