ProtectionEdit

I have protected this page due to the repeated back-and-forth (three times) over what the town should be listed as. The issue should be discussed here and a consensus reached before changes are made. I will say my personal opinion is that whatever term was used in the episode is what should get priority, which seems to be Derry.--31dot 16:06, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Politics or otherwise, it was called "Derry", so the first line should be "Derry (or Londonderry)". -- sulfur 16:29, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm... "moved Londonderry to Derry: this was the term used in the episode, that gets priority" was misleading or confusing? --Alan 18:38, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Why are we even mentioning the name "Londonberry" in the article at all? It wasn't in the episode, which clearly stated and used only Derry:
RUMPELSTILTSKIN: "A farmer from Derry once tried to chase me off until I saved his crops from locusts."
I'm not sure if a change can be made due to the protection, but what we have now is an odd hodgepodge. The lead includes a name never used, and the background note uses the unused name (Londonberry) instead of Derry. --OuroborosCobra talk 18:48, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Who said anything about Londonberry? ;) --Alan 18:59, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, oops :) --OuroborosCobra talk 19:01, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I think you should have the official name (Londonderry) but state that many people prefer to use it's slang name (Derry) Computer says no 21:37, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Please keep in mind that this is a wiki about the fictional universe in which Star Trek is set. The article should only contain canon information, which in this context is only what is seen or heard on screen. It doesn't matter what the real-world political situation is, or what the official name is in the real world, this is Star Trek... nothing more, nothing less. We provide a link to the Wikipedia for anyone interested in finding out more about the real-life version of the subject. -- Renegade54 22:15, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
