Removing "WikiProject" prefix

Hi, I am Daniel, from Spain. I would like to change the name of the wiki pages related to the Portugal mapping project to remove the "Wikiproject" prefix following the pages name conventions.

The name of the pages related to the Portugal mapping project would be "Portugal" (name of place) instead of "Wikiproject Portugal", as recommended by the wiki conventions. It is a change that I have already made in United States, Canada, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, India, Russia, and all Spanish-speaking countries (and more).

Do you like the idea? I will post this message also on your local mailing list. Thank you! --Dcapillae (talk) 13:40, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

I'm renaming the pages after consulting with the community. It may take me more than a day. I will post a new message on the local mailing list when all pages have been renamed. Thank you for your collaboration. --Dcapillae (talk) 13:28, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

There are hundreds of pages about parishes. Are they actually needed or used by anyone? It looks like they were created once in 2014, but edited just a few times afterwards. Picking an item at random, I also found that the parish Canedo de Basto (Canedo de Basto relation 4175619) does not exist anymore. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 10:09, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank, @Tigerfell. I can ask in the local mailing list if we can delete those pages, "WikiProject Portugal/Divisões Administrativas/" or "Portugal/Divisões Administrativas/". I will write a message to the local mailing list and link it here. I'll stop renaming those pages until we get a response. Thanks again. --Dcapillae (talk)
Hey there, I was the one that did all those hundred of parish pages. :) They were made during their importation a few years ago to help me guide what was done and to keep track of their populations. I now have a local copy so there isn't a need to have these take space on the wiki. Go ahead and delete them, follow this category. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Freguesias_in_Portugal ViriatoLusitano Portugal (Talk | Contribs) 12:07, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, ViriatoLusitano. Could we delete all these pages, @Tigerfell? I can add the "Delete" template to all of them if necessary, although they are many pages. Is there a more efficient way to do this? Thank you. --Dcapillae (talk) 14:12, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
That depends on whether we want to notify others first. Do you think we should bring that up on Talk:Wiki or talk mailing list? Deletion can be done via Special:Nuke using the query strings Portugal/Divisões Administrativas/Distrito de % and WikiProject Portugal/Divisões Administrativas/Distrito de %. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 17:43, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, @Tigerfell. I asked on the local mailing list and they agree. It has been confirmed to me by the creator (ViriatoLusitano) and has also been verified by another users. We can delete these pages without problems. I don't have enough permissions to do this. Can you help me? --Dcapillae (talk) 06:48, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
I do not have such permission yet either, but I asked Firefishy yesterday. So far, I did not receive any response. I will ping other bureaucrats, if I do not hear back from him by tomorrow. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 19:01, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
I started to delete the pages. I have to do it manually (see the log). --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 11:25, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
@Dcapillae @ViriatoLusitano I deleted all simple cases where the pages were edited by one of us or Verdy_p only and there were no incoming links apart from Portugal pages. For the rest of the pages, please use regular deletion requests, just to make sure. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 20:44, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
