The other names on the dab page do not exactly match "John Corbett".
With these page view statistics in mind, I think it's clear that the actor is by far the most popular search for "John Corbett" on Wikipedia. He is a pretty clear-cut WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Ten Pound Hammer • (What did I screw up now?) 20:36, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Question: What about non-exact string matches and long-term significance? WP:DAB is about candidate topics, not exact string matches for article title names, and the presence of an additional name or middle initial in a page name doesn't mean the person isn't known as "John Corbett". Long-term significance should also cause some topics to carry more weight than their page view statistics would seem to indicate. —BarrelProof (talk) 22:42, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Also, I've become even more suspicious of page view statistics after learning that views through redirects are not counted. —BarrelProof (talk) 00:57, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
How would counting redirect views change the equation here? Dohn joe (talk) 01:45, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't know; I haven't checked. As far as I know, no one else has either. —BarrelProof (talk) 03:00, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Support. Seems to be the clear WP:PRIMARYTOPIC - by a landslide. That includes adding in the fewer than 450 pageviews over the past month of the other three "John Corbetts" and the album on the dab page. Dohn joe (talk) 01:54, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
I think, when we have no other conclusive evidence, we should go with pageviews, especially with such a disparity as this. We're doing our readers a disservice otherwise. SupportRedSlash 21:09, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Oppose. No primary topic here. Just recentism. -- Necrothesp (talk) 13:53, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Support. Obviously meets the usage criterion at WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, so the question is do any of the other John Corbetts have "substantially greater enduring notability and educational value"? Having looked through the article my answer is no and I'd also add neither have the opposers have made a case for the long term significance of one or more John Corbetts either.
