Hi. Uh, I'm not 100% sure this is supposed to be here, and I've looked around a bit and can find no already-present information on it. Wikia's not really the easiest website to use so I'm going with what I've got.

Okay. I'm a sucker for RuneScape History. Like Morian Smith, I spend most of my time editing the "history" side of things in this wiki, and I feel like I've made some kind of an impact with it (I did some big work on articles like The Myreque, Viggora etc) and other than that I just do small stuff like correcting spelling. As a history buff I like to work on articles concerning the Mahjarrat too. I was quite shocked a few days ago when I went to the "Freneskae" article and discovered that its name had been changed to "Frenaskrae". Why is this? I know there's a lot of ways to pronounce it, but most, nay, all ingame and Knowledge Base articles refer to it as Freneskae. The only reference to it being called Frenaskrae is the Wise Old Man, who says, and I quote here; "They are believed to be from the realm of Freneskae, or Frenaskrae - the spelling in this tongue is only approximate."

Note that he says Freneskae first. Note also this this and this. Three citations on the RuneScape website of the spelling "Freneskae" and take a look at this. There are no results for Frenaskrae.

So why the name change? What was wrong with Freneskae? Every ingame mention, Postbag mention and God Letters mention calls it Freneskae. The article used to be titled Freneskae. If it has been changed for a reason, what is that reason? If it hasn't been changed for a reason, I think it should be changed back. Thanks

Discussion

Comment - You could try asking this on the talk page of the article itself or perhaps posting on the talk page of the person who moved it. Suppa chuppa Talk 01:19, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

I have asked on the talk page; did so the day it was changed, and have received no reply. I don't know who moved it from one name to the other. 01:20, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
Apparently Naikiw moved it, so you could try asking him on his talk page. Suppa chuppa Talk 01:22, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Be bold and move it - Either move it yourself or make it a speedy move candidate, this doesn't need a yg discussion about it. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 05:31, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Closed Obviously the name is Freneskae, si I moved it. This didn't require a yg thread, in the future just leave a note why it was done, on the mover's talkpage (you can use the history to find out who moved it). MIPWPRBucket detail.pngrwojy 05:38, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
