I've added Bulgaria as a country where the magazine is published as PC World. http://www.pcworld.bg/ , official site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:43, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
Merge proposal (PC Welt (magazine))
Beyond the different name, is PC Welt any more significantly different from the U.S. edition than (e.g.) the Brazilian edition of PC World, which is also published in a foreign language? If not, I think it should be merged. PC Advisor- the British edition- doesn't have (or warrant) a separate article either.

- I agree. Edge is all kept in one article for the different versions, even when in some cases they have nothing in common but name, almost. Everything that there is for an English reader to know about PC Welt magazine is surely no different to this. Of course, for the German Wikipedia, maybe things might be different. --Dreaded Walrus 04:41, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
The intro sounds like an advertisement
The intro to this article is too long, contains too much fluff, and sounds like an advertisement. In fact, everything after the first sentence is advertising fluff that sounds like it was written by the editors of PC World. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:48, 8 May 2007 (UTC).
- I concur. I think it sounds like an advertisement pretty much the whole way through and since no one has bothered to disagree, I'm going to put an advertisement tag. Fatla00 09:58, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
PC World was founded by people who left PC magazine when it was bought out by Ziff-Davis. That included David Bunnell, one of the founders of PC magazine.
The PC World's version of the story can be found here: http:[http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2103p019id108704.htm
This is pretty much the way industry gossip had it at the time, with the exception that part of the story (which has appeared in print in mags like Infoworld)was supposedly that Bunnell and a few of the others thought they were going to get a chunk of the profits when the magazine sold. They didn't, so they walked. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:44, August 27, 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:PC World logo.png
Image:PC World logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
I have reviewed the prior move discussion and the WP:MOSTM and feel that the intention is to use official trademarks in preference to other forms, for example eBay, iPhone, InfoWorld, Computerworld, Macworld, etc. (no space between trademarked words/syllables). I therefore propose that this page is moved to PCWorld and that PC World be made into a redirect to PCWorld (reverse the redirect).

For the record, this page has been moved (at least) twice now:
- "PC World (magazine)" to "PCWorld (magazine)" on 2012-03-08
- "PCWorld (magazine)" to "PC World" on 2012-10-07
- I'm not so sure there shouldn't be a space. The move request immediately above here has sources that clearly label the magazine as 'PC World' (with space); also looking carefully at the stylisation and the logo, you can see that the kerning is a bit more exaggerated than if the 'C' and 'W' were meant to be together, so my inclination would be to leave the article where it is. --ping / poke 01:39, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
- Which sources? Everywhere I look on the PCWorld website, it is "PCWorld" (no space). See, in particular, their "about us" page on brand identity for "PCWorld" here:
