Proposal: Move to Meta:Requests for permissions[edit]

This page is for requests for permissions of all types, yet it is currently located at Meta:Requests for adminship, which doesn't even indicate that it's for other types of permissions as well until pretty far down the page. I propose moving this page to Meta:Requests for permissions, to improve clarity. --Yair rand (talk) 04:02, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm okay with the suggestion, not that it phases me either way. No evidence that it is a problem, as I haven't seen misplaced requests or questions about where to place requests.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:42, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Please see previous discussion from 2011. Stryn (talk) 13:32, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. The previous discussion brought up an important point regarding the old logs linking to Meta:Requests for permissions. Perhaps a different name would work? --Yair rand (talk) 01:00, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
Oppose. Ain't broke. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:42, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Mild oppose. If anything, add an indication that it is also used for other types of permissions higher up on the page. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:52, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
What would happen to the subpages? Would they have to be moved? --Rschen7754 18:35, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
No, I don't think so. It doesn't look like anyone's been relying on {{/ syntax, so things won't break if the old pages aren't moved. --Yair rand (talk) 01:00, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
Labelling bot flag requests "Requests for adminship" is pretty close to broken, imo... --Yair rand (talk) 01:00, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Support. Sensible change given the permissions assigned here. – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:37, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose. No problem exists. --MF-W 23:20, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Now that we have the patroller permission, if we moved this page to RFP, people would think that patroller is requested here. --Rschen7754 02:40, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
