Moving Wikisaurus:homosexual

Jump to: navigation, search

Can you move "Wikisaurus:homosexual" to "Wikisaurus:homosexual person"? I cannot do it myself, as the page is locked for moving. Alternatively, can you unprotect the page in such a way that I can do the moving myself? Thanks! (I am not an admin.) --Dan Polansky 12:07, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

I am not sure why this request was directed at me instead of on the talk page. I don't see why this shouldn't be merely semi-protected, so I will make that change. As far as the move, I am not convinced that the move is warranted. There should almost certainly be two (or more) pages, one for words related to homosexual, one for words related to homosexual person, one for male homosexuals etc.

Thank you for making the page merely semi-protected. An explanation for the move: Once I move WS:homosexual to "WS:homosexual person", I can move WS:gay to WS:homosexual and thus turn WS:homosexual into an adjective-only page.

Why I have asked you: The request could have been directed at any admin; I had to choose an admin by a fairly arbitrary method. I could have made a random list of admins and then roll the die, but given the page was originally protected by you back on 9 September 2006 (diff), it seemed natural to ask you. Posting a request on the talk page of a Wikisaurus entry is an almost guaranteed way to have it ignored. Thanks again.
