Definition talk:Extended Real Number Line
- AFAIK this name is standard. I'm disinclined to change it - more so since I have grown used to it over the course of several years. --Lord_Farin (talk) 22:18, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
- Why is it that you are so determined to change names? I grasp it if you have references (but even then an "AKA" section will suffice most of the time) but I don't get that impression generally. I'm genuinely curious; after all, renaming a concept usually mainly brings a lot of work. --Lord_Farin (talk) 23:02, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
- I am against renaming pages on principle, unless there is a compelling reason to do so. The name is not too long and is as perfectly visually evocative as I'd like. I suspect that the desire to rename, restructure and rework every page possible is territorial. --prime mover (talk) 23:14, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
During the refactoring job I have compromised and called it the Extended Real Number Line. It occurred to me that "Extended Real Number" does not really state the case, as that suggests that the number itself is extended, when in fact what is really meant is the "extended set of real numbers", where $\R$ itself has been extended to include the two infinity points.
