The result of the debate was rename. Syrthiss 22:15, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

This program was not able to find any results. Sorry. To include in the categories' names the area in which these input/output devices are used. David Kernow 02:30, 11 May 2006 (UTC), amended 01:09, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Rename both as nom. David Kernow 02:30, 11 May 2006 (UTC), amended 01:09, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep as is. Are there any other output devices? Dr Zak 21:25, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
  • I guess there many input and output devices in the world not associated with computing. Looking down at where my fingers are currently typing, I can see the face of a watch and a little twiddly knob on its side...?  Regards, David Kernow 01:09, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Rename to avoid confusion with electrical output and such NHammen 23:20, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep. While output alone has multiple meanings, one would have to struggle to interpret output devices as any other kind of output or any other kind of device. Do people really think of the hands on a watch as an output device? Is the nonexistant article hand (mechanism) really in desperate need of a thusly named category?

I don't know if I've lost the ability to do simple arithmetic or if there is something I haven't understood about the discussion process, but how is two voices in favour of renaming and two against consensus to rename? LX (talk, contribs) 08:36, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
