[edit] So?

According to both and merriam-webster, "Nevermind" is a completely valid spelling. I see no reason for this page. Delete. — Defender1031*Talk 21:34, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Seriously (pun intended)? A page on a phrase that I spell as one word as well. No way. I've made some bad pages, so I know your standereds. Delete on the grounds of being too generic and, actually, used exaclty how it should be. --Jellote wuz here 21:51, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
I see your points, It's just that when I spell nevermind as one word my auto spell checker says it is wrong. I completely respect your points and have no problem with this being delteeted. I did think it was a good idea. The McArby! 21:58, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Before I comment on the article, let's get a couple of things straight: Nevermind is not correct. The first link above points to a noun (as in "Pay him no nevermind," which isn't used much in today's days), and the second link doesn't even define it. Links where it is defined consistently show it as two words. (Never mind things like Wiktionary, for obvious reasons.) That said, I still don't think we should have an article on it because it is such a common mistake that a lot of people don't even realize is a mistake. It'd be like having an article on how alright is not actually all right. — It's dot com 22:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Your hurricane of puns just blew away the competition. I feel a surge of energy for deletion. You sniped it right in the eye. *Ahem* You are right, so it seems. It is a mistake. But it is so common it doesn't really matter. Like, do we need an article on how many times Strong Bad fails to capitalize? You got my point exaclty. Deletion is in order.--Jellote wuz here 22:57, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Remind me to read links more carefully before i post them... — Defender1031*Talk 23:01, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

though this is probably a complete no, is there any way this can be changed in a way for this to be useful? I know the answer is likely no, so I'm not getting my hopes up. The McArby! 20:58, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

It looks like the consensus is to delete, with really no objections. Can we follow through? --TimMierz 20:24, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Judging by the Nirvana Album I came to the conclusion that leads me to say that the word "Nevermind" is indeed one word. So...delete that crap! CrabAttack1999 20:31, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, that isn't official or anything. Webster's > metal. Another mistake, it seems. Nasty image on said page aside, one album does not justify spelling. But since a consensus is reached, the discussion seems to be pointless from this point. Let's get this delete train a-rolling.--Jellote wuz here 21:40, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) :Wow, I came closer than i thought to completely missing this discussion. Never mind is two words. and pizzazz has four z's. have the brothers chaps used "never mind" as two words yet? i am currently neutral as to whether or not this page should exist. The Knights Who Say Ni 21:44, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, in all uses of it in SBCG4AP subtitles. Granted, those were spellchecked by TellTale games, but that still busts the "consitancy cloud" keeping this page afloat.--Jellote wuz here 21:52, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, now i agree with dot com. The Knights Who Say Ni 22:16, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Jellote, four things: First, Nirvana is Grunge, not Metal; Second, there was a mistake on the album cover (actually read what's on the page and you'll see what I mean, read the section about the album cover); Third, the record people would make sure the spelling is correct and official for the title (unless it was an intential mispelling...which it is not); Fourth and finally, it is official (it's music, it went through publishing, official legal people helped create it, it was labled by an official company and therefore is official. plus, Nevermind was their best-selling album. It went platinum. Smells Like Teen Spirit is the song that made them famous. And, I also own that particular album and I have checked all the publishing stuff and all the legal stuff, so I don't think it's official, I know it's official). So, Jellote, before you go judging things you might want to see what they are first. Ever heard "Don't judge a book by its cover"? If you didn't read the article, how can you be so sure about everything you said? CrabAttack1999 22:44, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
By official, I don't mean anything about that album being a lie. As seen above, it is such a common misspelling that nobody probably noticed it (besides grammar-freaks, but they probably liked the music too much that they didn't care). I'm not saying that record is unnoficial, I'm saying that Webster's is the spelling we are going with. I didn't mean to insult them or anything.--Jellote wuz here 11:50, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
Publishing companies get things wrong. There's a song called "Everyday" that really annoys me, because everyday means "ordinary", not "each day". In official publications of the lyrics, they correct it to the two words every day, but the title is still wrong, and many online lyrics sites get it wrong. Similarly, Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway" has a one-word title, but her official site shows the actual lyrics to be two words (since it's a verb phrase). Again, many lyrics sites get it wrong. (I actually think this second example may just be a style choice, since breakaway as a noun doesn't mean something vastly different from the verb.)
As for this article, TBC really only got never mind wrong once, by having it wrong in their heads to begin with. Each example listed in the article is just an instance where they happen to use it. In conclusion, this article is not notable, and I've deleted it in accordance with this discussion. — It's dot com 17:39, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
