Alarion Province Militia[edit]

I am not to upo on the Militia organization used by the Lyrans but this unit seems to be the same as Alarion Province Militia, if it is not the same unit I think we need to re-organise the units so it is clearer. --Dmon 04:01, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Alarion Province Militia is the brigade to which this unit belongs, technically article should be called the Alarion Alarion Province Milita. Yeah. Cyc 11:37, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
... we really like this new name? :P ClanWolverine101 (talk) 19:38, 9 January 2015 (PST)
I think it's kinda bloated, but I don't know how it could be shortened and still get the full point across... -BobTheZombie (talk) 17:44, 16 January 2015 (PST)
There are other examples like this in the Lyran ORBAT. It's not so noticeable in the textbooks because they don't spell it out - they just write it Alarion APM. Others include the Coventry CPM - or Coventry Coventry Province Militia and, IIRC, the Timbuktu TTM - Timbuktu Timbuktu Theater Militia. BrokenMnemonic (talk) 02:01, 17 January 2015 (PST)
I was thinking about how the real world would handle this; I decided to be bold and move the article to its present structure [proper name (location)]. My rationale is that the name "Alarion Alarion Province Militia" is non-canon, as is my "solution", but in a real world situation the distinction would be made that there was not an error produced with the sequential repeat of the name by separating one of the uses to emphasize the different context of the repeated word. If there is no consensus on this, the default should revert to "Alarion Alarion Province Militia".--Revanche (talk|contribs) 10:38, 19 May 2021 (EDT)

Some Cleanup done[edit]

Not sure if my edits meet the requirement to remove the cleanup template yet, so I'll let others give it a look over first. NorikSigma (talk) 08:37, 18 May 2021 (EDT)

NorikSigma, I think you did rather well. I compared the older edit to your revisions and they seem solid. In the future, unless you feel the article still needs additional work beyond what you've done, feel free to exert your judicial authority and remove the tag. You have no concerns coming from the rest of us editors. Thank you for fixing it up.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 10:27, 19 May 2021 (EDT)
