Moved as requested. bd2412T 13:45, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
*NSYNC (album) → 'N Sync (album) – The proposed title is consistent with similarly titled articles, especially 'N Sync itself, and adheres to MOS:TM. You'll find sources that refer to the album as *NSYNC sure enough, but they almost always refer to the band with the same stylization. Surely the titles for the band and their self-titled album should match one way or another. BDD (talk) 18:34, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Oppose. I am sort of embarrassed to admit this, but I am a bit familiar with the press releases during the time of 'N Sync's history of existence. I did not even start seeing the group's name stylized as 'N Sync until after the release of their second or third album. Given this information, I more recognize their first album being stylized just as it is rather than at the location of the proposed move, especially given that their name was stylized as *NSYNC during the release of this album. In fact, I would even say that the current title is the WP:COMMONNAME. Steel1943 (talk) 03:42, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
But it's just that—a stylization. Per MOS:TM, we shouldn't adhere to those where alternatives exist. --BDD (talk) 15:13, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
I agree with that, and I would agree to this type of move on most occasions. However, due to all the sources that have the name of the album stylized as it is currently in this article's title, as well as having some knowledge on this subject myself, I believe that the way this article's title is currently styled is such a recognizable WP:COMMONNAME for this album that the article's current title is superior to being subject to MOS:TM guidelines. (This discussion might become, more or less, a discussion about which guideline is superior in this case. :) ) Steel1943 (talk) 16:23, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Support per nom. I see no compelling reason to avoid consistent titles for this case. RedSlash 03:30, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Support per nom and Red Slash. This is a styling issue, and just as it's Macy's not Macy*s, it should be 'N Sync not *NSYNC. — Amakuru (talk) 12:16, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
