Wikipedia:Proposed article splits

This is the page to make requests for the splitting of an article into two or more separate articles.

This process is usually undertaken to keep articles from becoming too large (and consequently slow to load on some browsers); but may also occur when an element of an existing article gains substantial notoriety in its own right. In such a case, requests for splitting-off said content from an existing article into a newer, more focused article, should be directed here.

Please make your requests for article splitting below, after familiarizing yourself with splitting process|Guide to proposed splitting of article(s). We will also attempt to get more people to comment on proposals, however, if the split is contested or potentially controversial, it may be best to run the discussion through Requests for Comment or Articles for Creation instead.

§ All split comments and discussions should be directed to the "discussion" subsection of the Original Article's talk page, NOT here.§

Split requests

If you need assistance with proposing a split, list it below and someone will make sure it's properly listed. Note that this will not get the split completed, as there may be a backlog, and splits often require considerably more discussion than a merge request, for instance. To request a split, list the article below as well as requested target article title(s). Include a short descriptive reason why you think a split is in order. Please sign your request(s). Thank you.


Please list new requests at the bottom of this section. Use the Edit Summary and list at least a link to the article to be redirected. Please legitimize your request by signing each listing or comment by typing four tildes (~~~~). Unsigned requests may not be honored.

To request your split, copy the following template, paste at the bottom of the "NEW REQUESTS" section below, and fill-in (over-write) the article titles specific for your request:

'''*''' ~~~


After the involved article is tagged for the split discussion, the request should be added at (or moved to) the bottom of this section. This section can also be used if a proposal needs further discussion due to age, disagreement, or lack of consensus.

  • Split Community into Community (settlement) and Community (sociology): to distinguish between the only tenuously related 1) original human geography sense of the term, based on physical living environment; and 2) the subcultural derived meaning of intentional community, voluntary association, and self-selecting participation. What we have right now is basically a messy WP:COATRACK situation.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  00:21, 27 July 2018 (UTC)


After discussion concludes, completed requests should be moved below (to the top of this list). Please mark as when consensus has been reached.
