Possible rename of this article

I'm not familar with where/how his method has ever been called "QPR2", so I'd like to suggest renaming this article to "PR^2" or "PR squared", assuming that the method is still referred to by that name by Dr. Julian Wiseman. Questions for @RodCrosby:: is "QPR2" your personal name for the method, or can you cite other online uses of the name? -- RobLa (talk) 20:35, 17 January 2023 (UTC)

I'm agnostic on the rename. The method is different at the constituency level from Julian Wiseman's original idea. By introducing quotas and two-member constituencies, the results are more acceptable, in my view, and the practical chance of adoption in the UK somewhat higher.
