Hey, welcome to the wiki! Unfortunately, I had to revert your edits to OCA:Move since the name you've added seems to have been created by you. Generally speaking, names should only be added to the wiki if they are already mostly agreed-upon by the community. I'd be happy to readd your change if you can find a source showing that the name is in common use. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reply. Ian07 (talk) 22:30, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

there are a few exceptions, however they generally have a few reasons behind them besides a passing whim, e.g. a name that one or multiple databases use (though even then, it’s usually not considered enough). A good explanation can be found here, and a good rule of thumb here. Ian07 has the general policy summed up above, though.Moosey (talk) 15:06, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Just a small tip when making links

If the word you're turning into a link is plural (and isn't an irregular plural) you can do it like this: [[ship]]sships, [[fox]]esfoxes. Ian07 (talk) 23:11, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks CoolCreeper39 (talk) 23:12, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
No problem, also thanks so much for the work on the "List of common ____" articles! Glad to see they're no longer like seven years out of date. Ian07 (talk) 23:11, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
