This is normally two words news ticker. I'm not finding evidence for a single word form. -- ALGRIF talk 12:42, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Correct. Collect (talk) 12:43, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Did you put quotes around the word when you searched? Cited. DCDuring TALK 14:15, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes - and found it used as a registered trademark and as a German neologism (Germans always weld adjectives to nouns <g>). No actual independent usage that I found, and none for a plural justifying an entry here. [1] shows it is extensively German in usage. As does [2]. If you wish to list it, it should be marked as chiefly German usage. Cheers. Collect (talk) 15:27, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Also uses in URLs where spaces are generally removed -- when you remove such "false positives" and all German uses - the word basically is iffy at best.Collect (talk) 15:31, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
It either gets three cites or it doesn't. Is there anything wrong with the ones I've added? DCDuring TALK 18:06, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
I just limited the search to English to reduce the number of hits for the German websites and sorted through the remainder until I found three cites. (Sitzfleisch required)These are not the kind of terms I would ever bet against getting attestation. DCDuring TALK 18:12, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Even a rare misspelling — and we don't include rare misspellings — can have three citations. (That said, I'm not doubting this word's inclusibility.)​—msh210 (talk) 17:04, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Who is claiming that this is a misspelling? Or are we saying that news ticker is SoP? DCDuring TALK 19:28, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
I was claiming that it was an incorrect entry. But if you want to keep it on 3 (the minimum) cites, then I suppose the misspelling might be the way to go. As you wish. Just don't make it a misspelling of new sticker is all. -- ALGRIF talk 17:26, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
Why do you say it is a misspelling? Do you object to the three-cite minimum? If it is a misspelling, then there is no WT:COALMINE rationale for including news + ticker. DCDuring TALK 19:05, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
I would treat it as not a misspelling, unless "news ticker" is also used in those books alongside "newsticker". - -sche (discuss) 19:45, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
