The table looks awesome! I'm not sure though what the Portmanteau/Fanciful Names distinction is supposed to achieve, though, because it makes it harder to sort by name. I would suggest to merge portmanteau/fanciful names to Pairing Name, add an aditional colum "Category" for slash, het, femslash, threesomes, etc. and merge the different tables into one. The problem with pairing names is that they are so random and if you don't know what a pairing names means, you won't know in which table to search to begin with, so it's better to have just one table that you can sort for different criteria. --Doro (talk) 19:27, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

I did it the way I did it so it would be easier to find the specific pairing's names faster than what the list did (like the List of Harry Potter Pairing Names had). Then you can learn all the specific pairings names at ONCE - which is so much easier because they aren't so spread out. Maybe just had have the Portmanteau/Fanciful Names just merged together would be better. Otherwise I think the separate tables would be better. --Harpie (talk) 20:44, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
I already went ahead and changed it. I think a glossary page is more useful if it names the term you are looking up and then defines it. If you want to know all the pairing names for a specific pairing you can sort by pairing, and if you are only looking for het, slash, femslash, or threesomes, you can sort by category. --Doro (talk) 20:51, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Would anyone mind if I did some reorganizing so that you don't have several separate entries for the same pairing randomly distributed throughout the page (instead they could all be in one box)? Please? --Sari (talk) 21:16, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

I think that would make sense. Especially if you put the more common pairing first. I'd say go for it. --Alex (talk) 22:51, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

I reorganized and added a bunch but there are still a few well-known/popular ships that I had trouble finding names for: Natasha Romanoff/Sam Wilson/Steve Rogers (possibly: Up all night to get Bucky) Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes/Sam Wilson (possibly: Freedom Threesome) Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes/Peggy Carter (possibly: Agent Winter Captain) Pepper Potts/James "Rhodey" Rhodes Pepper Potts/James "Rhodey" Rhodes/Tony Stark Jane Foster/Darcy Lewis (possibly just janedarcy) --Sari (talk) 07:46, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Rename Request

Can this page be renamed to "List of MCU Relationship Names"? There are moresomes on here, as well as names that are more frequently applied to gen relationships than the romantic ships they're associated with in the table. -the old briar pipe (talk) 17:06, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

On it --Alex (talk) 17:17, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
And done --Alex (talk) 17:19, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Wow, that's the fastest response I've ever received. Thanks! -the old briar pipe (talk) 17:23, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
It was at the top of recent changes when I looked. Just good timing :) --Alex (talk) 18:20, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

two things

1. I rolled back a destructive edit removing an incest ship.[1] Based on the edit comment, the person was removing content because they didn't like the ship. Please note that the goal here is to list all ships that fans ship, no matter what we personally think of those ships.

2. I find the way the list is split out to be confusing. Why is Steve/Peggy considered a "TV" ship when it appeared in the Captain America movie? Also it looks like the ships in the TV list are not in the other lists, even though they fit the criteria. Also someone created a separate "non-binary" list for Loki ships. Is it canon that Loki is nonbinary? (ETA: someone tells me it is comics canon, but not movie canon, and this page is for the movie fandom.) I would prefer that all ships be in one list and to add a column for "type" (slash, het, etc.) as well as number.--aethel (talk) 21:27, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

I have to agree with you, the current organization didn't scale well, and there are a lot of genderbend works being ignored by this formatting. What alphabetization or numbering system would you prefer? -the old briar pipe (talk) 02:18, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
Querying this again, since I think the page is even less readable/skimmable now. Any ideas? -the old briar pipe (talk) 04:34, 28 February 2020 (UTC)
