Western illinois university[edit]

  • Delete, a school of any sort is not usually an article. Possible speedy candidate. -- Colin 19:21, 8 December 2006 (EST)
  • Keep and redirect to Macomb (Illinois), which I just created. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 19:39, 8 December 2006 (EST)
  • Delete even if redirected it's still not appropriate. Xania 20:21, 8 December 2006 (EST)
  • Redirect as Andrew proposes. We've handled other universities (e.g. Baylor) this way; no reason to vary the routine for this one despite the crummy capitalization. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:38, 8 December 2006 (EST)
  • Redirect. --Evan 09:45, 14 December 2006 (EST)
  • Delete this. If we need a redirect, do that with correct capitalisation. Pashley 02:18, 15 December 2006 (EST)
I suspect that the unusual capitalization is due to a MW feature (flaw?), which causes the first letter of every page to be capitalized. I know a great many people who refuse to capitalize when they're searching for things on the net and I believe the user who created the article typed in "western illinois university". Hence the abnormal capitalization, which, I feel shouldn't be an issue since a user can use all lowercase letters and still be redirected to the appropriate page. -- Andrew H.
