Confusing File Name for File:Timurid Dynasty 821 - 873 (AD).png[edit]

The date on this file is misleading. The map is correct, but the date is an Islamic calendar date and thus, should be labeled (AH), as in anno Hegirae, not (AD), as in anno domine. I believe the convention in the English language is to write both dates like this: 821/1419 - 873/1461 This has caused confusion: see discussion for this file in wiki commons, and discussion at wikipedia: Timur. Could an administrator please change the file name?Mloafness (talk) 21:45, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

You can request it by adding {{rename}} to the image description page... AnonMoos (talk) 02:32, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
