I find the idea of clothes pegs fascinating. Utterly marvellous page. I am the chairman of the clothes peg appreciation society. Thumbs up to anyone who has worked on this page, it should be highly commended. The wealth of knollwedge on the topic of the clothespin is remarkle... well done!

The US term is clothespin. In the UK and AU it is clothes peg. There is no reason to move the page to clothes peg or clothes-peg, but it would be ok to move it to clothespin, which is much more common than clothes pin or clothes-pin. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:01, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
OED is a British dictionary. Clothespin is an American word. What is the "spin confusion?" How to pronounce the word? It is pronounced clothes-pin, but clothes-pin isn't a word. Check any American dictionary.126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:18, 31 August 2008 (utc)
Support. WP:ENGVAR is the relevant guideline. This article doesn't have particular ties to the US or the UK, so the decision is up to "the first major contributor to the article". This was (presumably) Seth Ilys (), who called the implement in question a "clothespin", tying us down to the US spelling. We should therefore use the standard US spelling, without the hyphen.

Support. Actually both spellings are acceptable in the US based on dictionary lookups. However the single word spelling is, in my opinion, far and away the most common. Vegaswikian (talk) 03:59, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

That section is rather meaningless, and could best be conserved otherwise, which I'm sure it is. /Mats Henricson, 2009-08-25 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:07, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
