Name[edit]

Shouldn't this page be moved to "Norfolk Broads", or at the very least "The Broads"? Those are what people will search for, not just "Broads" (especially off-wiki). --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 09:20, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

I would agree. When you say "moved" I assume this is a "rename" as Norfolk Broads seems to be a redirect. My personal preference would be Norfolk Broads (but I'm sure there would be differing opinions). Adding Norfolk basically because is provides more information. Maybe a good comparison would be that there is not a page called "Dales" nor "The Dales" but there is one called Yorkshire Dales. Interestingly, I recollect (I think) that in one (or maybe more places) I actually prefixed The before a Broads. People who refer to the area as "The Broads" are those who already know what they are and where they are and I'd guess that WV is more targeted at those who don't know what they are nor where they are, etc. I have no idea how to ove or rename pages so I wont even try if the consensus is to rename/move.

Support the name change, prefer Norfolk Broads but The Broads would also work. --Traveler100 (talk) 12:04, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
