  • This name is usually spelled with a small letter. I cannot move it, because the target page has history. Kurepalaku (talk) 14:12, 12 June 2011 (UTC) Kurepalaku (talk) 14:12, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Wikipedia rules seem to say keep the uppercase D. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 16:18, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose per MOS:TM. Powers T 17:06, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
  • I don't see any rule that says to keep the uppercase D. There's a rule for all-small (craigslist) and for one-letter small (eBay), but not for multiple-letter small. If anything, this is similar to the rule that says "CamelCase are a judgment call". It seems to appear as "developerWorks" everywhere on the website. --Kurepalaku (talk) 05:21, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
    • "CamelCase are a judgment call" means we can choose "DeveloperWorks", "Developerworks", or "Developer Works", but not "developerWorks" -- it is a proper noun and should be capitalized like a proper noun. Powers T 20:00, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Powers. It's a proper noun, and apart from a few special cases, we capitalize proper nouns despite the preference of trademark owner.[1] Jafeluv (talk) 09:37, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
