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.

The result of the proposal was Move Tron to Tron (disambiguation) & Tron (film) to Tron. Timrollpickering (talk) 23:21, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

– I think the franchise is the primary topic. Let's discuss this. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 04:09, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Support; I think you're right. There are a lot of alternative uses, but they all seem pretty marginal in one way or another (either nicknames, or partial title matches, or minor uses). Powers T 13:11, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose because the franchise article does not outpace the original film article in terms of traffic. A simple search engine test shows that "Tron" as a term is most associated with the original film, so I see a stronger case for that topic. I would also argue that the original film has educational value as a noteworthy science fiction film, where the franchise is merely a reflection of that film being milked by the studio. Just because the non-franchise articles are grouped under the franchise article on the disambiguation page does not mean that the franchise article is the one that readers are most likely to look for or the one that has the most educational value. I'd prefer maintaining the disambiguation page as-is or exploring the possibility of having the original film as the primary topic. Erik (talk | contribs) 15:59, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
    • I'd be fine with the film being primary as well. Powers T 20:47, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
