Don't Stop 'Til You Get EnoughDon't Stop 'til You Get Enough – The move that previously capitalized 'Til was ill-motivated, saying "The form with the capital seems to be more usual, & appears on publicity material." The former does not appear to be true, and neither is relevant, per MOS:CAPS, MOS:TM, and especially MOS:CT. Dicklyon (talk) 21:09, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Support per MOS:CT. Powers T 18:56, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose - there's nothing in MOS:CT that speaks to words with an omitted letter replaced by an apostrophe. It does state that "every word is given an initial capital except for certain less important words" and _'til is not listed as an exception, in fact, until is listed as a preposition that should be capitalized.. Furthermore, the song is listed as "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" on sleeves for the Off the Wall album and the single itself, plus it's listed as such on most (if not all) articles on the album, including the wiki page on the album.[1] So, bottom line, without any direction from MOS:CT telling us to not capitalize the word, I see no reason to break from the standard of capitalizing each word in a title.

    It is a preposition with fewer than five letters, and thus falls under the rule that says not to capitalize such prepositions. It doesn't have to be explicitly called out on the guideline page. Powers T 23:44, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Support "'til" is a proposition that has been abbreviated. It should 'ave been uncapitalised if it were spelt out in full, let alone now. -- Ohc ¡digame!¿que pasa? 06:56, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
