Move proposal[edit]

As described here and at w:Styrofoam, the use of "Styrofoam" to describe expanded polystyrene is (1) regionally specific to the US and Canada, (2) in conflict with a trademark, and (3) considered by some to be incorrect. "Expanded polystyrene" is correct; its only disadvantage is that it's a less popular term in the US and Canada. Given that most categories here use "expanded polystyrene", and it's the more precise term, I suggest that the category be renamed. Wikiacc (talk) 04:20, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

For the same reason, proposing the same moves for Category:Styrofoam boats, Category:Styrofoam cutters, Category:Styrofoam igloos, Category:Styrofoam kites, Category:Styrofoam sculptures, Category:Styrofoam sculptures in the United States. Wikiacc (talk) 01:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
