Removing first line[edit]

As of 22/06/2008 there was this line (sic) on the article page:

"ade is an actor born in london with his first role in the smash cult movie snatch"

I am removing this as it is not very clear what the original editor was trying to communicate. Roswell Crash Survivor (talk) 23:29, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

History or origin[edit]

It would be great if this article included information about the history and/or origin of the term. — Reinyday, 01:52, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect Information[edit]

An ade does not mean carbonation. Neither Powerade nor Gatorade is carbonated; I cannot vouch for the others but sports drinks are normally not carbonated. Andyo2000 (talk) 15:14, 19 May 2009 (UTC) The whole article basically consisted of unsupported and contradictory statements. Does this article serve any purpose? 72.225.236.119 (talk) 15:39, 25 May 2009 (UTC)—Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.225.236.119 (talkcontribs)
Preceding comment was mine. Didn't know how to sign-sorry. Hawkwild (talk) 15:43, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

At least in the UK and other European nations I've been to (where english is used), the -ade suffix has been used to denote something being a carbonated drink. For instance, "Appleade" is used to refer to carbonated Apple juice, Orangeade to carbonated Orange juice, Lemonade to carbonated Lemon juice, etc. - And as a side note, there was some contention over Gatorade using the -ade suffix without being carbonated when it started to be sold over here, breaking with the tradition of more traditional drinks like Orangeade, Lemonade, Pineappleade (Pineappleade is delicious), etc. and even trademarked names, including Lucozade, which -IS- carbonated.

Request for an Ade disambiguation page[edit]

Ade (pronounced ADEH) is a also a very popular name in West Africa, notably in Nigeria and Cameroon. Consider King Sunny Ade to name but one. Can we thus have a Ade disambiguation page and Ade(name) please? I do not know how to create such. Thanks.  SmokeyTheCat  •TALK• 08:03, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

  • The disambiguation page exists at ADE. — Reinyday, 15:07, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
  • The name page now exists at Ade (surname). — Reinyday, 16:05, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
