QUPA '09[edit]

I'm not sure what QUPA '09 is but it is not working. It should probably be deleted. --Mjbauer95 (talk) 21:10, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

iPhone OS to move here[edit]

FYI, there is a move request at Talk:IOS (Apple)#Requested Move 3 to move that page to this location. 76.66.193.119 (talk) 03:39, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

The result was no consensus, no move. Widefox (talk) 19:51, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Separate section[edit]

I've reverted the changes to re-add this. All the articles in the section have more than 10k hits/month, which is more than 10x more than the rest of the articles on the list (source).

Visually separating out what people are likely to want to see makes it far clearer. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 07:01, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Of note as there has been no discussion I've readded the content to the article. If you want to move the Isles of Scilly down feel free. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 14:26, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
I have cleaned up as per WP:MOSDAB. There is no primary topic, so no items need singling out at the top. I see no reason to make an exception. Simply sorting by topic (with these popular items towards the top of course) seems normal. Widefox (talk) 19:51, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
The new version looks fine. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 19:58, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Apple iOS move[edit]

Apple's iOS is suggested to be moved here. This is now being discussed at Talk:IOS_(Apple)#Requested_Move -- 65.94.71.179 (talk) 22:59, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

No consensus to move. Vegaswikian (talk) 02:52, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

IOSIOS (disambiguation) – Move over current redirect. iOS could then be a redirect to iOS (Apple) per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Refer also to Talk:IOS (Apple)/Archive 1#Requested Move where there was no consensus to move iOS (Apple) to IOS. Hatnotes have now been added to iOS (Apple) and Cisco IOS.

  • Oppose in isolation, though I would support a multimove that included moving iOS (Apple) to iOS. Powers T 13:12, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose - What Powers said. Marcus Qwertyus 02:31, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - I've previously opposed this move but I've just had fresh a peak at the traffic stats and policy and see that the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC argument is strong. --Kvng (talk) 12:22, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
    Note that there's no proposal here to move iOS (Apple) to iOS but it would free up iOS for use as a redirect. --Trevj (talk) 08:26, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
    Which is pointless. A redirect from the base name to a disambiguated title would quickly be reversed. Powers T 12:36, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
    Fair point. I must've misunderstood WP:PRIMARYTOPIC a little. --Trevj (talk) 20:31, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Try it as a multi-move[edit]

The result of the move request was: moved Favonian (talk) 15:26, 1 September 2011 (UTC)


– Per the above discussion, a multi-move is more appropriate. The operating system appears to be the clear primary topic based both on pageviews and usage in reliable sources. Powers T 13:01, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Right now this disambig page violates the manual of style for disambig pages[edit]

From Wikipedia:PIPING#Piping -- "Subject to certain exceptions as listed below, piping or redirects should not be used in disambiguation pages". I'm not quite sure what needs to be done to bring it back to standards, it might be a good idea to come to a consensus first with page titles. riffic (talk) 07:20, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Is there some problem with iOS is an operating system for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Apple TV.? olderwiser 11:40, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
I believe at the time Riffic made the change, iOS had been ridiculously and improperly moved to Apple iPhone OS. Even so, though, there's nothing wrong to linking to a redirect when that redirect matches the disambiguation page better. Powers T 15:56, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
