Page move edit

The system swallowed most of my explanation for the move, so I'll explain in more detail. I moved it from "Recorder" to "Judge" because (a) "Recorder" by itself is inaccurate, or jargon (if I was at the Bailey, I might tell someone that I was appearing in front of the Recorder, meaning the Recorder of London, but this can easily be confused with appearing in front of a Recorder i.e. a part-time judge); (b) "Recorder of London" would be more accurate but is too detailed and obscure for a headline - "Judge" gets the point across more easily. I moved it from "2016 dates" to "2016 trial date" because the trial date is the most important thing, and the PCMH date is of much less interest. Bencherlite (talk) 12:41, 21 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

Thank you, Bencherlite (t · c · b), I agree with this page move. The current title reads much better now. :) -- Cirt (talk) 12:53, 21 October 2015 (UTC)Reply
I actually found the PCMH more interesting, since it's much more likely to take place on the originally planned date and is likely to include a plea one way or the other. Hard to get that across without straying into analysis, however. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 13:18, 21 October 2015 (UTC)Reply
"much less interest" wasn't a good choice of words - I was inelegantly trying to say that someone might be more interested in when the trial will be than when the plea will be taken. A trial (if it takes place) leads to a resolution of the matter; a plea only resolves the matter if it is a guilty plea. Bencherlite (talk) 13:28, 21 October 2015 (UTC)Reply
