Regarding the disambiguation page, the point of disambiguation pages is to disambiguate between articles. The topics you added have no articles, therefore disambiguating into them is useless. (In other words, Wikipedia is not AcronymFinder.) And external links are explicitly forbidden.
As for the Advanced Access Content System article, the title of that article is unambiguous. There is no need to re-ambiguate it. WP:NAMB is currently under discussion, but I think this is a quite reasonable rule: when you go to see an article titled "Advanced Access Content System", you already know what you mean.

- Thank you for pointing out the relevant policy. While I don't agree with policy in this case, I'm not going to contest the point either. Given there's always a gap between policy and it's application, for example Email address makes multiple references to external Request For Comment pages which I suggest as consideration that forbearance is sometimes consistent with Wikipedia goals.
- A Google search for AACS shows some notability for entries I added to AACS article and I suggest keeping them to show acronym has wider usage and encourage article development.
- While the Advanced Access Content System article title is unambiguous, the full title is seldom used, the AACS acronym is the commonly used form. IMO, the definitive evidence is the organizations own WWW site where (1) they list the acronym before the full name, (2) use AACS alone when referring to the technology specification and (3) the copyright notice page footer which all support (A) my usage assertion and (B) imply AACS is a legal name or trademark.
- Your reconsideration is all I ask, I require no further discussion. Please proceed making edits as I withdraw my objections. Best regards, Conrad T. Pino (talk) 20:38, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
- Not sure what you meant by the Email address example — this is not a disambiguation page, the links to specifications are helpful, accurate, relevant and contain more detail than we would allow here, and therefore they are encouraged per WP:ELYES. WP:DABNOT applies to disambiguation pages only.
- As for AACS, sure. This is why we list Advanced Access Content System as one of the possible expansions on the AACS page. If a reader types "AACS" into our search box, they get to the disambiguation page and pick what they meant. For the other topics, I think WP:WTAF should be applied here: try to establish notability of each subject individually, and then add it to disambiguation pages.
- But anyway. Thank you for being willing to discuss this. I think this is something that we here often fail to properly appreciate. (Also, I prefer being notified of a discussion by having my user page linked: [[User:Kephir]]. Not that I feel very strongly about it. Just a suggestion.) Keφr 20:56, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Spaceship (disambiguation) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
- List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
- ''spaceship''' is a craft, vehicle, vessel or machine designed for spaceflight (see [[spacecraft]])).
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bill Paxton, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Vanity Fair (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
