Disambig[edit]

Anyone else think that this page should go straing to the disambiguation page? A definition of the word "hum" seems quite a pointless default, what with "Wikipedia is not a dictionary" and all that. --24.209.110.27 00:32, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

It appears to be more than a definition. Hyacinth 09:56, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, this page should be reserved for the sweet 90s rock band. --Jeffauxier 20:16, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

That would be at Hum (band).

Big rewrite today, because putting machines and insects before singing seemed wrong to me. I'm not sure if the slang belongs on this page or just in the dictionary. JohnWhitlock 14:10, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Wrong[edit]

The definition provided is just wrong. You can hum with your mouth open. You can even hum and whistle at the same time if you practice at it. A rewrite is needed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.151.166.112 (talk) 03:45, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

The title isn't the best[edit]

I tend to hum a lot too...and while I do so right now at the spur of the moment, I think the title isn't the best possible one for this article, and so:

Hum (sound)Humming – I'm proposing moving it to a name which is easier to remember and more often linked to. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 03:18, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose - A hum is the sound(noun), humming is the act(verb) of creating that sound. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WildWikiGuy (talkcontribs) 00:29, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
WildWikiGuy as much as you can attend a "meeting" (noun), or nurse a "swelling" (noun), you can hear a "humming" (noun). GregKaye 16:41, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong support - I don't see how this move can be opposed in light of WP:NATURAL. There's no discernible difference between an article on a hum and an article on humming. Red Slash 03:33, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Support change of title and change of content so that it is more verb based similar to Growling, also found in Category:Sound. Note: Hum (sound) is also found in Category:Singing (verb). GregKaye 16:41, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Support per WP:NATURAL.  — Amakuru (talk) 18:25, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
