WQ and subpages[edit]

WQ is a collection of links related to Wikimedia Quarto, a project that ran for one year from 2004 to 2005. I propose that WQ and its subpages be transferred under Wikimedia Quarto/... subpages so everything is located under the same Wikimedia Quarto umbrella. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:15, 26 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MarcoAurelio: I am inclined to process this request. Just to confirm, move with redirect or without redirect? Tulsi 24x7 15:01, 2 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not sure, but please note that there are Special:PrefixIndex/Wikimedia Quarto/ subpages as well in addition to Special:PrefixIndex/WQ/. What a mess. WQ has more subpages than Wikimedia Quarto, but Wikimedia Quarto is a more descriptive title than WQ, which by the way is confusing with Wikiquote. I'd leave this unactioned for a while just for precaution. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:35, 2 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This has been left for over 3 months now so I think it is time for this to be fulfilled. What I am going to do is move Wikimedia Quarto to Wikimedia Quarto/1 without a redirect, then move WQ to Wikimedia Quarto, with its subpages. There is a lot so I am obviously going to use the flood flag for this as well. --Ferien (talk) 14:01, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I actually ended up changing the original Wikimedia Quarto page to Wikimedia Quarto/New, as there was WQ/1. MarcoAurelio, as this is the first move request I have ever handled as an admin here, does it look as though I have done everything correctly/no major errors? Thanks. --Ferien (talk) 14:37, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, @Ferien: The moves look okay to me, but I'd not mind another pair of eyes to verify since they were a large number of page moves involved here. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:09, 16 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
