I've placed a rename tag on this page mostly as a reminder that it can be renamed to "Dave Stone" once the real world Dave Stone page is moved to "Dave Stone (writer)". Shambala108 ☎ 22:19, October 28, 2017 (UTC)
- You know that this page is just a in universe version of the writer btw Adric♥Nyssa∩Talk? 08:56, October 29, 2017 (UTC)
Rename: Part 2 Edit
There is established wiki precedence for not dabbing metafictional versions of real world actors and crew members, because the real world counterparts are considered primary topics. The list of precedents includes basically everyone in category:Alternate Earth (The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who) individuals, as well as Tom Baker (TV Action!). We have not relegated Matt Smith to "Matt Smith (actor)" and made the one-off character who is meant to be the same person the primary "Matt Smith".
While we do absolutely dab the real-world people whenever they are distinct from the in-universe character, in these cases we very consistently dab the DWU counterpart. The pages should be moved back.

- Go ahead. I was mostly through the changing of links when I discovered that the two are the same and I didn't feel like undoing most of my work. THere's a huge list at Category:Articles that need renaming and since I'm the only one taking care of it, it's easy for me to make mistakes. Shambala108 ☎ 13:34, September 3, 2019 (UTC)
