A funny NYT article on the “long tail” articles on Wikipedia that become the disputed ground in edit battles (hint: think Scientology) has a link to a Wikipedia entry on “lamest edit wars“, and guess what’s featured?

Nobel Prize in Economics

Should this article (and other articles and templates that mention this award) use the common name of the award, the official name, Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, the even more official name, Sveriges Riksbanks pris i ekonomisk vetenskap till Alfred Nobels minne, or perhaps a compromise name, Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics? The ignoble debate has involved endless discussions, requested moves, revert wars, blocks, and strangely, two (N/n)obel Prizes.
