Seriously, Steve Borden owns the trademark - he should be listed first. Ascensionblade (talk) 19:26, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

The ordering should be done in accordance with the Wikipedia:Manual of Style (disambiguation pages) which states:
In most cases, place the items in order of usage, with the most-used meanings appearing at the top and less common meanings below.
Steve Borden owns A trademark, not THE trademark. More specifically he registered 'Sting' for use in entertainment services, namely live and televised performances by a professional wrestler/entertainer. This falacy that he owns THE trademark 'Sting' really should be put to rest. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:43, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
Though I haven't heard of Burdon, it would appear from his entry that he is fairly well known in the United States and to a degree outside of the United States. The musician is one of the best known and most successful musicians in the world, eclipsing the wrestler in recognition in the United States and certainly the world.

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Sting/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

This article still needs substantial editing. Some suggestions:
  • Needs references
  • Needs a better lead
  • The Police is an important part of his career. In my opinion, it shouldn't be inside Biography, it should have its own section
  • Discography could have a table

Sting (biology)[edit]

Have changed the entry to the following, including a change to the heading:

Stinger / Sting, a structure of an animal to inject venom, or the injury produced by a stinger.
The irritating hairs or prickles of a stinging plant or the plant itself.

There may be a separate entry in WP for the injury, but what that is eludes me.

See Talk:Stinger#Should_stinging_plants_be_included_here.3F for a fuller discussion of plant vs animal. GeeBee60 (talk) 14:58, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
