Disambiguation[edit]

This article is referring to two different concepts. One in networking and one in computing. There is already a payload disambiguation page. I propose this either needs to be split or deleted. --Kvng (talk) 15:39, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

No Disambiguation[edit]

Although I understand Kvng's position above, i disagree. Since the definitions are rather short, I suggest to have the different meanings included in one article - just the way it is now! Disambiguations are more useful when there are long articles and many fundamentally different articles available. I kindly ask Kvng to reconsider his position and talk-contribution. --Nonchablunt (talk) 09:49, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

No stub[edit]

I think 'payload' is sufficiently defined. Instead of making this article longer, i suggest adding references to fitting, existing articles to avoid redundancies. Without anyone voicing disagreement I might remove the stub-tag soon. --Nonchablunt (talk) 09:49, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

There isn't consensus on the purpose and fate of this article - just two editors in disagreement. In addition the the concern I described above, there is also WP:NOTDICT. ~KvnG 17:36, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
