Aren't these properly called "phenethylamine and piperidine compounds?" I know that name is quite long, but shouldn't this be a redirect, namedrop the proper form and then the colloquialism, and then have the rest of the article be presented as is?

'Phenidates' and 'phenidate compounds' see frequent use within literature to refer to the class. 'Esters of ritalinic acid and its analogs' is the definition we like to use for the 'phenidate' class. Do keep in mind that some short-hand is necessary for our readers, particularly as it pertains to the "chemical class" portions of our substance boxes. While your point is valid, it is overly technical and thus not helpful for our userbase Clarity (talk) 01:08, 7 August 2017 (CEST)
--Thanks; I did not know that "phenidate" and its derivatives were used often, nor did I know that "esters of ritalinic acid and its analogs" was a more technical definition than "phenethylamine and piperidine compounds." --Corticosteroid / 19:15, 6 August 2017 (EST) and 01:15, 7 August 2017 (CEST)
