renaming enPR → AHD[edit]

  • Voting on: restoring the "enPR" transcription key to its original designation of "AHD", referring to the American Heritage Dictionary. This would affect the wording and location of {{enPR}}, as well as the wording of the headings of the Wiktionary:English pronunciation key‎.

  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support kwami 21:54, 26 September 2009 (UTC): Using the initials "AHD" to giving credit to the AHD is not copyright violation. Failing to give credit is plagiarism.


  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose EncycloPetey 22:29, 26 September 2009 (UTC) Credit can be given without altering the name. "AHD" stands for "American Heritage Dictionary", not their respelling system. --EncycloPetey 22:29, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Robert Ullmann 22:50, 26 September 2009 (UTC) strongly. And voting is not a dispute resolution process. Given the proponent's personal abuse of EP on the 'pedia, I would suggest that "kwami" be blocked here. He/she has made no attempt to apologise. This "vote" should be terminated. Robert Ullmann 22:50, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
It was EP who instructed me to bring it to a vote! It is also EP who has abused his admin privileges, as several other good editors have complained. Personally I think EP should be blocked for his block-happy behaviour, but that is utterly irrelevant for this vote. kwami 23:09, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
