Talk:AR (disambiguation)

Disagree. Common usage of a term when there is other usage of a term shouldn't dictate a redirect with a disambig in an alternative name. The fact that AR refers to multiple things is reason enough to keep this as a disambig page. Though I do think some of these things (Anvil Rock) are tenuous ties at best, there's still some which are used as "AR" instead of armor rating - I'll reword the beginning to show that armor rating is the most common usage though, which should suffice.

Actually, thinking on it more, I don't think I've seen any of these but armor rating referred to as "AR" - as such, I disagree with the move and I say we don't need this article at all - just redirect it to armor rating and remove the disambig. If AR is used for the others, then forget this statement and I remain to keep this as the disambig page. Konig/talk 21:26, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Maybe I should have used {{split}} instead. Here's what I meant:
  • AR should redirect to Armor rating.
  • A new article, AR (disambiguation) could be created for other possible uses of the abbreviation (i.e. the current contents). (I'm also okay with losing the contents.)
However, I don't think the article should be left as is for all the reasons that Konig listed above. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:01, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm aware that's what you meant and I disagree with the redirect unless we just remove the other (rather unused, if ever even used) alternative meanings. Edit: Based on past edits, it just seems like a person added anything and everything that has the initials "A R" and it was trimmed down a little. I think not enough.

But AR doesn't commonly refer to other things. The only time people use AR without any context is to refer to armor rating. A disambiguation article should be reserved for when there's real ambiguity; I don't think AR qualifies. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:33, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Hence my second post and "unless we just remove the other (rather unused, if ever even used) alternative meanings". Konig/talk 18:34, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Erm, then why not simply redirect and lose the never-used terms (that happen to have the same initials)? – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:37, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Redirect to Attack Rating, imo. Seriously, though, if AR = Armor Rating is a strong enough connection, moving this to disambig, redirecting AR -> Armor rating, and putting a tag at the top of Armor rating would be the best. --JonTheMon 18:44, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
for what its worth I see AR used to mean agg refrain all the time, ancestor's is also common and remedy was once pretty popular, they're just all completely overshadowed by armor rating because its profession agnostic 18:45, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
