I've moved the article 'Bawapakerwa-a-a-awapawab' back to 'Bwaps' on the grounds that 'Bwap' is the Imperial name for the race and 'Bawapakerwa-a-a-awapawab' is what the natives call themselves. (Cp. 'Aslan' and 'Fteirle'). Unfortunately, I accidentally moved it to 'Bawps', and after repairing the mistake, the history for the article currently to be found under 'Bwaps' was lost, and I can't figure out how to restore it. Sorry about that. Can you do something about that, Thomas?

I've moved the article 'Bawapakerwa-a-a-awapawab' back to 'Bwaps' on the grounds that 'Bwap' is the Imperial name for the race and 'Bawapakerwa-a-a-awapawab' is what the natives call themselves. (Cp. 'Aslan' and 'Fteirle'). Unfortunately, I accidentally moved it to 'Bawps', and after repairing the mistake, the history for the article currently to be found under 'Bwaps' was lost, and I can't figure out how to restore it. Sorry about that. Can you do something about that, Thomas?

(Also, 'Talk:Bwaps' is currently 'Talk:Bawps' as I gave up on trying to move it.)

The full history is still under Bawps. In order to keep the history with the page, you need use the wiki move page, not just copy the text. The correct article should, I think, be 'Bwap (singular for titles). The other pages Bawapakerwa-a-a-awapawab, Bwaps, and Bawaps should all be redirects to the correct page. If you agree, I'll move the pages to the correct titles and make sure the others are correctly redirecting. Tjoneslo (talk) 23:38, 3 September 2015 (EDT)
