Quickstep alpha Vinyl team template

Hello.. I just added myself as a member of this project, because I would like to know how to move a template, because I've done almost (??) all moves related to the Quick-Step team to reflect it's new name, but don't know how to move the template Template:Cycling_data_QST to Template:Cycling_data_SOQ, so I'm writing this to ask someone to perform this move or to describe how I can do this.

Welcome to WT:CYCLING, @Tiagomagalhaes! You don't need to, and indeed shouldn't, move the template. The whole point of these templates is that as and when the team name changes, you just add a new entry to the template. That way, all articles referring to this template will always show the correct name. Cheers, Kiwipete (talk) 02:46, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Kiwipete if you have a look at the page history, if the UCI code is changed then yes we move the page to the new code. @Tiagomagalhaes This must be done at Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests and you must have a source linked showing the new UCI code. Comment This means that as an example both RAB (Team Jumbo–Visma) and TJV (Team Jumbo–Visma) both give the same team if used with 2022 as the year. This is to ease usage in races so we don't have to hunt around for the code. If this was the case then MOV might still be BAN for Banesto or REY for Reynolds.

But the template has been moved 6 times in the template's history and the current one's not even the original name Tiagomagalhaes (talk) 03:11, 2 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rundfahrt article titles and other hyphen/endash issues

There are several articles that include "–Rundfahrt" in the title, where I believe the endash should be converted to a simple space. The endash is usually used to connect two destinations (as in Paris–Tours), but Rundfahrt is a description, not a destination. These are:

  • Bayern–Rundfahrt --> Bayern Rundfahrt
  • Niedersachsen–Rundfahrt --> Niedersachsen Rundfahrt
  • Brandenburg–Rundfahrt --> Brandenburg Rundfahrt


  • Rheinland–Pfalz Rundfahrt --> Rheinland-Pfalz Rundfahrt (correcting endash to hyphen in Rheinland-Pfalz)


  • Circuit Franco–Belge --> Circuit Franco-Belge ("Franco" is a combining form, so hyphen should be used, per WP:ENDASH)
