Digital Content Merge[edit]

I'm suggesting that the digital content article be merged into two separate articles. There is no need to narrow the scope of content (media) to digital content if there isn't anything unique about a digital content format compared to an analog content format. And if there is anything unique about a digital content format, it should be part of the digital data article. Oicumayberight (talk) 17:48, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

We might want to also consider Digital media in this discussion. ~Kvng (talk) 14:03, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
That article should be exclusively about the various media which can store or deliver digital data. Where it gets into what's unique about a digital content format should also be part of the digital data article. Oicumayberight (talk) 08:25, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
The "need to narrow the scope of content (media) to digital content" is not related to uniqueness between digital or analog delivery methods of contents. The content (media) article exists as a diction and disambiguation reference. "Content" is contemporaneously used to describe an objective set of things, and the term has spread as jargon. "Digital content" exists as reference for a category, not a term, and if it were to be merged then digital media would be the appropriate article. "Digital content" and "digital media" are synonymous in context of what the digital content article is written to describe. The digital content article describes content storage and distribution by digital means. However, the content (media) article is specifically describing the word "content" in its various contexts as a synonymous pronoun for "media", "art", and the like.
