Should it be "Til" or "Till"?

The title of this non-published book is mentioned on the CD-ROM. There, the title is written with "til", so with one l. Although "till" is short for "until", the dictionaries I checked say it should be written with double l. So we corrected it here as such. --Sugit (talk) 17:30, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

The title of book must match to a cover. But CD-ROM do not have it there.

Anyway i do not think it's worth to change the title, even if it has the error. All mentionings on CD-ROM have "til", including Appendix.--DhyanAntar 18:14, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

'Til is mostly used in song lyrics and is quite common in that context. eg do a google for " 'til the end of time " --Rudra 02:58, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, so it would be different if the CD-ROM would have 'Til (i.e. the shortened form of Until). But it has "Til", which is not mentioned in the standard dictionary. And as we ONLY have the CD-ROM, and no other source at all, I propose to use the correct spelling. --Sugit (talk) 07:41, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

so "till" or "til" (which mentioned on CD-ROM)? --DhyanAntar 06:57, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Guys, what did you decide? Tell please what "word to use? Timeline now has "Dance Til the Stars Come Down From the Rafters, # 1" (as CD-ROM has). And this book has other title...--DhyanAntar 16:00, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

So doofus, our authority on English, has enlightened us on "til" :

"Yes, maybe "til" can be counted as OK English."

As that is not an unqualified no, and as our only source is the CD-ROM itself, we decide to stick with that questionable "til". --Sugit (talk) 18:46, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Just a remark: the event-pages ended up with double l: Dance til the Stars ~ 01 etc. No problem, imo. --Sugit (talk) 14:25, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Update: luckily changed, now all single-l. --Sugit (talk) 17:40, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
