The result of the move request was: Moved to Artsy (website) Mike Cline (talk) 22:49, 25 February 2013 (UTC)



Art.syArtsy – Artsy has changed it's name by dropping the "." and moving to just Artsy. This change to effect on 1/4/13 and was announced in a company press release here https://www.dropbox.com/s/eb2px1az38q4tsa/Press%20Release%20January%204%202013.pdf relisting see below Andrewa (talk) 19:30, 17 February 2013 (UTC) . Madeleine Goldstein (talk) 20:05, 9 February 2013 (UTC) *Support It should have been at Artsy to begin with due to the WP:MOSTM. The fact that even the trademark owner is no longer using the old spelling means that there should be no reason whatsoever to stop this move.--174.93.160.57 (talk) 20:25, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Strong oppose artsy is a different article. It is the adjective form of "art". If you want to rename this, it would become artsy (website) , since it is not the primary topic of "artsy". -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 01:42, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Fine with me, I would Support the artsy (website) suggestion.--174.93.160.57 (talk) 02:21, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
No, artsy is not an article. It's a redirect, and redirecting it to Art is fairly speculative, especially when the term doesn't appear on that article at all. This is a good case for overwriting that redirect. --BDD (talk) 18:15, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
wikt:artsy, WP:ADJECTIVE -- adjective forms redirect to the noun form. It doesn't matter if "artsy" appears at "art" or not, it is an adjective form for "art". Making every single variant on "art" appear at the art page would contravene WP:NOTDIC. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 21:08, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Exactly as proposed. This would've been appropriate even before the official name change, per MOS:TM. --BDD (talk) 18:15, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose: "Artsy" is an ordinary adjective. A move to Artsy (web site) would seem OK. —BarrelProof (talk) 17:56, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose original proposal, the official name change is irrelevant, but the current name Art.sy does contravene the MOS as pointed out above, so I support a renaming to artsy (website} or similar. Relisting. Andrewa (talk) 19:30, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
