Impact?

Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:00, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

I agree that "Rename" may be more intuitive than "Move". Isn't it possible to change this without having to reword the Mediawiki fundamentals? (E.g. doesn't "New topic" become "+" and "Discussion" become "Talk" for those who've made a few edits or changed their preferences or something?) The documentation (and associated things like Requested moves) might not all need completely changing. We could just refer to "rename" as the main term and include "move" in parentheses. -- Trevj (talk) 13:25, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
