What I've seen used and am comfortable with is disambiguating by thing (film versus person, for example), source (character from X versus character from Y), and, for people, by place. I don't think an article about a person needs to be at Name (artist) when the other item by the same name isn't a person, and I don't think Sparks (fan) is the way to go. Others' thoughts? -- Sine 02:03, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

I have seen people move way too often (specially the US,) to use (location) as a way to differentiate. Case in point, colleague on same work field just returned to California after his 10th move in ten years. Of all the (friend related) user pages I have started, except for two, all other have made one to three moves over state lines (one five) in the last 5 years. But, again, is just my view on the subject =) If it looks/formats or makes sense to keep it the original way, I'm kosher with it - Spirou 05:37, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
