Commentary by an IP author, moved from article
IOCPs do not need a socket or file handle association. "A process requesting [...]" should be changed to "A thread requesting [...]" as "process" does not execute code - threads do. When working with IOCPs the caller IS notified of the completion of the request via WaitForSingle/MultipleObject(s). Contribution by - 22.214.171.124

Comment you're doing it wrong. This WP:RM only concerns the page "Input/output completion port" which you are asking to rename. If you wish to disambiguate IOCP, write the other articles first, and then edit the page "IOCP" into a disambiguation page. There is no need to rename the redirect. If you wish an additional redirect to this page then just create one at IOCP (API). 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:15, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Oppose. As 188.8.131.52 says, this is a misformed request. The proposer wishes to rename the redirect page at IOCP, but the request they have raised is to rename the target page at Input/output completion port. I oppose both moves. IMO the correct action is to create a stub artcle for Input/Output Control Program, and add a hatnote pointing to it from Input/output completion port. If a third meaning for IOCP warrants an article, then when that third article is created we'll need a disambiguation page, but not before. However I wouldn't be in a rush to close this request, let's fix the problem first. Andrewa (talk) 07:21, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Oppose If only for the unnecessary use of an acronym. --Labattblueboy (talk) 22:01, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Good question! It depends on the eventual article title and redirect structure a bit, but it looks OK to me, and uses the correct template. I think it would be better to say for the IOCP API, rather than just for the API, but I think either meets the guidelines. See WP:hatnote#Hatnote templates for the guidelines on hatnote templates (but I think you already have looked there).
But the article title is certainly not in a good format, it should just be I/O configuration program or Input/output configuration program, not I/O configuration program (IOCP). We use parentheses for disambiguation, not for alternative titles, see Talk:Shechita#Survey. That is, the parentheses are not used unless the article title can have two meanings (even when an alternative is itself ambiguous). The proposed title for this article is not itself ambiguous.
