The result of the move request was: not moved, caps differences handled by hatnotes. -- JHunterJ (talk) 11:55, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


– The article on radio airplay doesn't get even half the hits of articles on the disambig page, so it should not have primarytopic status. See also the related but somewhat independent Talk:AirPlay#Requested move. Dicklyon (talk) 04:36, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Capitalization is an appropriate disambiguator. A hatnote already exists on airplay, and other uses besides the Apple product are of very low notability. Red Slash 19:32, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Capitalization is generally regarded as not an appropriate disambiguator. Very few articles do that, and they remain controversial. Dicklyon (talk) 00:26, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Except for where MOS says that it is. Listen, if you want to take it up there, I'd even fight with you for ending it. Till then it's still policy and apparently the people there really want it to be that way... Red Slash 23:24, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Besides, at least as far as linking goes, I can't imagine many people would ever link to airplay thinking they'd have a prayer of landing at the Apple product. Searches would show the capitalization, too. And (finally) if this article is moved, it would be best to use a WP:NATURAL name like Radio airplay. Red Slash 23:26, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose as radio airplay is the original meaning of the term. The branding "airport" and "airplay" for the Apple gizmos are named for the corresponding, already-extant dictionary words. K7L (talk) 23:43, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
