We need better disambiguation between the article pages regarding interns & pages[edit]

"Charles George Page"?[edit]

I've removed this as an apparently bogus entry. There's no reference anywhere to this person, other than mirrors to this site, and the EL given looks like a spoof. JGHowes talk - 12:31, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Primary use[edit]

most times is a blank piece of paper or with words on it.ex: a book has pages in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.10.133.4 (talk) 21:57, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Testing[edit]

Is this even used anymore? 90.197.112.28 (talk) 22:09, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

– I may be an old codger/curmudgeon, but I expect to see a paper page when I search for "page", and I'm pretty sure nearly all older people would agree. When books become obsolete, that'll change, but we aren't at that stage yet. Clarityfiend (talk) 22:59, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose: It will be decades or centuries before electronic pages make paper pages completely obsolete. But electronic pages will surpass paper pages by the end of this decade if they haven't already. Oicumayberight (talk) 23:29, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Page (occupation) is a more substantial topic than one side of a leaf of paper, and older, and more likely to be a subject of specific interest. Given the very large number of uses of "page", it is best to have the undisambiguated link go to the disambiguation page. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 23:41, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose the use of a public-address system or a pager would seem likely -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 03:58, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose: too many important uses, no primary topic (to Clarityfiend: I agree that to most of us "page" still means firstly a part of a book or newspaper, but how likely are you to be searching for it as an encyclopedia topic in that sense? Not very likely, I suggest, so it doesn't make it as primary topic). Note, to complicate matters, that Page (occupation) has been moved to Page boy Page-boy, and that there is a separate Page-boy Page boy for the wedding attendant!

    • Comment I've suggested Page-boy be split in two, since congressional pages are frequently women, and page-boy does not describe the modern day occupation that is more akin to intern or gofer -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 01:09, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. Seems like the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC to me. -- Necrothesp (talk) 11:54, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I see no criterion by which this would be the primary topic. While a case can be made for long-term significance for the paper sense, the prominence and enduring use of the historical sense of a servant contests this (e.g., Congressional pages, NBC page, and page (weddings) are all well-known continuances of this sense). None of the suggested means to help determine a primary topic support any single sense of the term. A simple Google search shows results all over the page (so to speak). Even looking at only Books or Scholar doesn't give any strong indication of a primary topic. Examining What links here doesn't reveal any significant trend. Page view traffic stats as well offer pretty clear indication that the paper sense is not the primary topic. Over the past 90 days, there were 32346 views of the disambiguation page. In the same time period, there were 4720 views of Page (paper) and 19444 views of Page (computer memory), 17411 views of Page, Arizona, 63926 views of pager (a special case perhaps, though certainly a common use of the term "page"), and 14171 views of Page boy. Although not listed on the disambiguation (though perhaps they should be), there were 4785 views for United States Senate Page and 5064 views for United States House of Representatives Page. olderwiser 14:24, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The paper page has already fallen from its throne, though not yet fallen into obscurity.  —Sowlos  11:02, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
