Sebastien - I wondered if you could help me to delete the page 'The Rice Seedling Sutra' and do a redirect to 'Rice Seedling Sutra' as obviously the title is better without 'The'. I've added all the content to the page 'Rice Seedling Sutra'. I couldn't find out how to delete a page and redirect in the Guidelines. So could you do it or tell me where would I find this info. in a way that is easy to understand? - thanks, Ts.

Hi Tsondrü, When you only want to change the title of an article, there is a simple function called 'move page', in the 'more' tab. It's much easier and better than deleting a page and creating a new one... --Sébastien (talk) 10:33, 30 November 2018 (CET)

Thanks, Sebastien. The page already existed - it's just that I didn't spot it so that's why I created a new page. When I discovered it I realised it's better to have the title without 'the' which is how I'd titled the new page. Thanks for the useful info re changing the title. Ts.

ok, no worries! There are a lot of articles in the Sutras category (Sutras) that also start with 'The'; do you think we should standardize all the titles?--Sébastien (talk) 14:30, 2 December 2018 (CET)

Actually I'm having second thoughts about it. I just checked on 84000 to see how they titled their translation and it included 'the'. The Noble Mahāyāna Sūtra “The Rice Seedling”. In this case given the content of the sutra it might be better to keep 'the' in the title. I'd like to know what others think about how to title sutras. Ts.
