Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was No consensus - Page Not Moved, also note that no one has suggested how a UK/US/AU/etc keyboard (since this is English Wikipedia) will easily generate an ï character (even the French know best - the website is at www.ouifm.fr)  Ronhjones  (Talk) 02:36, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose, as current name is in english form. GoodDay (talk) 01:11, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
That's the French Wikipedia, this is the English Wikipedia. GoodDay (talk) 16:30, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Baseless. Arbitrary diacritic stripping does not automatically give an "English form". Knepflerle (talk) 16:59, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
  • " In English, ï = i." - bizarre, and completely wrong. Knepflerle (talk) 16:59, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support I don't get it, how is the current name the English form? "Oui" and "Ouï" are both as equally French as each other. WP:UE says if there is no established English name, then we use the common French name. 84.92.117.93 (talk) 16:51, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I'd like to see how this radio station is referred to in English, but the request seems sensible on the face. Knepflerle (talk) 16:59, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

In case anyone was in any doubt of the stylistic nature of the dots, in the logo they appear above the U. FWIW, English is diacritic-agnostic - there exist no words in the modern where the addition or omission of a diacritic produce a new word (naïveté is a loanword). Therefore Knepflerle's statement is the only thing "bizarre, and completely wrong" here. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 18:55, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
