This noticeboard is for discussion closers to discuss their evaluation of consensus in preparation for closing specific discussions, such as pending XfD, RM, or RfC closes. Any editor who intends to close a discussion, and has concerns about how consensus in that discussion should be assessed is welcome to initiate a discussion here.
Please note that this noticeboard is not for the discussion of the merits of the underlying matter. It is solely for discussing whether a consensus can be discerned in a discussion, and how the discussion should be closed on the basis of a finding of consensus, or of an absence of consensus. Editors who are involved in discussions of the merits should generally avoid engaging in extensive discussion of how consensus in those discussions should be interpreted.
This noticeboard is also not for review of discussions that have already been closed; the appropriate place for such a request will generally be Wikipedia:Move review or Wikipedia:Deletion review. This noticeboard is also not for requests that a discussion be closed; the appropriate place for such a request will generally be Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Requests for closure.
I am inclined to close this as consensus to move, and furthermore to change "center" to "centre" on the basis that sub-articles in two countries predominately using "centre" outweighs the U.S. use of "center". My feeling is that the longwinded argument demonstrates that either title is permissible, and the length of argument against the move does not override the numerical consensus favoring the move.

- Agree that there's consensus to move. Not sure about "centre" v "center". The logic seems sound, although some folks love to debate ENGVAR so it may depend on if there's a discernible format in the discussion already and how many may object. In the 2019 discussion someone said
"Center" should not be switched to "centre" without a very good reason. Granted WP:CONSISTENT is a thing, and (as you mention) Self-managed social centres in the United Kingdom and Self-managed social centres in Italy use the "centre" format. Imo a close either way on that could be justified. ProcrastinatingReader (talk) 17:58, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
