There seem to be a fair few articles that have been candidates for renaming or merging for quite a while without any action taken. Unless there's some objection, I will take the following actions regarding them within the next 24-48 hours...

Merge

Christmas at Hogwarts - Was suggested for merging with Christmas at Hogwarts (soundtrack). No discussion, but no real reason not to merge it either. There aren't any other songs that have two separate pages.

Rubeus Hagrid's umbrella/Rubeus Hagrid's wand - A previous attempt to merge the two articles resulted in them being restored as separate articles. The articles have apparntly been tagged since 2009. The result of the discussion was no consensus/weak object. I'll remove the merge tags from the articles.

Mint humbug - was suggested for merging with Peppermint Humbugs. No discusson, but the two are clearly the same item. I'll merge them.

Renaming

Flying Ford Anglia - was suggested for renaming to Ford Anglia 7990 TD. Result of the discussion was either no consensus or very weak support, and no action taken after over five months. I'll remove the rename tag.

Automobile - was suggested for renaming to Car. The consensus was support. I'll rename it.

Mrs. Scower's All-Purpose Magical Mess Remover - was suggested (by me) for renaming to Mrs. Skower's All-Purpose Magical Mess Remover, based in this being the spelling used in the books. Was put on hold because I wanted to be sure that this wasn't simply used in the American version, but not the British. Since nobody has chipped in to say that it isn't spelled with the "k" in the British version, and since it's unlikely that this would be changed between the two versions, I'll rename it.

1 January - was suggested for renaming to 1st of January. After over five months, there have been no comments on the matter except by the original poster. Since there seems to be no support and altering this article would also require a renaming of all of our other articles for individual days of the year, I'll remove the rename tag.

HP Twitter Page - was suggested for renaming to Harry Potter Wiki:HP Twitter Page. After nearly ten months, there has been no discussion, except by the original person suggesting it. However, I will leave this one alone for the time being, since it seems to be a sort of "official" page.

There were also three different pictures of Antonin Dolohov that had rename tags on them, but didn't actually have any suggestion for what they should be renamed. As such, I have removed these apparently rogue rename tags. ProfessorTofty 05:18, January 21, 2012 (UTC)
