Deadline.comDeadline (website) — The website brands itself simply as "Deadline" , not "Deadline.com". The Celestial City (talk) 18:42, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose. We go by what people call them, not by what they choose to call themselves. Andrewa (talk) 23:20, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
  • To my knowledge, very few people call it "Deadline.com". From my experience, it's usually known as "Deadline Holywood". The Celestial City (talk) 23:57, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

It would be good to have some evidence other than your personal experience. Andrewa (talk) 03:15, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, the official Facebook page for starters. What are your sources for claiming Deadline is known as Deadline.com? The Celestial City (talk) 12:09, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
    • No sources needed so far. If someone said to me deadline.com I'd know exactly what they meant, and if I said deadline.com to a complete stranger I'd expect them to know too, so the current name is quite adequate. A case needs to be made for the proposed move in terms of WP:NC. Or is Deadline Hollywood a better name still? Andrewa (talk) 19:54, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Deadline.comDeadline Hollywood – Name used for official branding (see also here and here). I'd say common name, but a search engine test with Google returns slightly more with "deadline.com" than with "Deadline Hollywood" (probably because of the domain). --Relisted.

  • Oppose: The current name is, as you pointed out, the common name. If you said "Deadline Hollywood" I don't think many people would know what you were talking about. KaneZolanski (talk) 17:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
    I only stated that because it would return results from the domain itself. In prose, it appears as "Deadline Hollywood" more commonly than "Deadline.com". I guess a better test would be to check [1] and [2] (with the site itself removed). 23W 17:44, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
