Rename Edit

This article is more than just conjecture — to me, this is a downright violation of T:NO RW. This is like calling parallel universe (Inferno) the "Inferno universe"! This is the precise reason why we have dab terms. This should definitely be renamed Parallel or Alternate universe (The Infinity Doctors).

Or alternate timeline (The Infinity Doctors).
I think it should be this or Parallel universe (The Infinity Doctors) as those are the two terms that we use to describe 'otherness' of alternates and is how the universe is described in the intro to the article. --Tangerineduel / talk 13:23, August 27, 2013 (UTC)
Removing {{rename}}. This name was agreed after long, long discussion at Forum:Is The Infinity Doctors canon?. The page was created by Josiah Rowe who was a careful participant to that discussion and therefore it does reflect the sense of that discussion. Tangerineduel, you agreed to this name on 24 May 2012 with the words:
"That sounds fine. Simple and easy. I have no objections. So, can we go ahead and do this or do we need to wait?"
Now, in fairness, that discussion did allow for later changes, and I'm not opposed to looking for something slightly more in-universe. But we definitely didn't break T:NO RW, as SOTO alleges, because we had a big ol' specific discussion about the name, in which we knowingly exempted ourselves from T:NO RW in this case. Also, his example of Inferno Earth makes his point poorly, since that is based on an in-universe concept: the Inferno Project. Therefore, SOTO's specific challenge fails, and the {{delete}} tag must be removed. It can be replaced, but only with an entirely different suggestion.
As an aside, we probably don't want nomenclature like parallel universe (The Infinity Doctors) because pipe tricks leave us with a non-specific term. Any name which leaves us wondering which parallel universe we're talking about after a pipe trick isn't a good name.
