The result of the proposal was no consensus to move. This may need further discussion further along into the rebranding.Cúchullain t/c 15:15, 23 August 2012 (UTC)


Windows Live ContactsPeople (Microsoft service) –The name I am suggesting is only a working title, as I'm sure someone else could think of something better to go within the brackets and I'd welcome your suggestions. However, Windows Live Contacts is now changing to People, so this article should change with it. Cloudbound (talk) 21:53, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Support - Makes sense. And the brackets also seems to be the right fit to disambiguate, at least for now. With the rebrand, one suggestion would be to expand the article a little to include details about the People app for Windows 8, as well as People hub in Windows Phone. (for example, the ability to add other social networks to Microsoft account, and link these contacts and view status updates about them in People.) --Damaster98 (talk) 00:18, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - for now, as the re-brand is not complete, and even after will still be commonly called by the old name during a transition period. Also, as it will still be part of Windows Live do not see Microsoft service as a good disambiguation, Windows Live People, or People (Windows Live), maybe. We should wait and see what the common name will be for this.--Education does not equal common sense. 我不在乎 01:43, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
    Just a quick comment regarding People (Windows Live) - we all know that Windows Live is being rebranded, so the new "People" website, apps and hubs doesn't actually have anything to do with the Windows Live brand, which makes it an inappropriate disambiguation. --Damaster98 (talk) 01:51, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
    Right, like I said, let's wait and see what sticks. This is a premature move at this time.--Education does not equal common sense. 我不在乎 02:05, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
