Why exactly was the page moved? Is it not our policy to leave the acronym as is?--Ant2242 (talk) 23:14, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Proper English conventions dictate that a word string must be spelled out, first, before an acronym can be used, and then the acronym can be used as liberally as liked afterwards. I checked our policies, as I will be consistently making these changes. If I missed the policy, definitely point it out to me, as I will want to talk about it with everyone else.

Then for example "S. Boston Military Checkpoint" (and Terminals) becomes "South Boston military checkpoint" (and (terminals)?--Ant2242 (talk) 00:25, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Basically, yes. If it comes to it, though, there might need to be exceptions to the rule, in which case I am currently drafting up a policy addition for cases where when spelling out an acronym, causes for an article's header to become too long. I will make sure to put it up for discussion - I will send you a message when I release the forum. GarouxBloodline 00:30, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
