How do we want to handle nominations for merge/deletion? Specific example: there is a Authors' birthdays/February page and a Authors' Birthdays/February page. (And, of course, I updated the wrong one. ;-) ) Papeters 02:34, 21 May 2006 (PDT)

(Looks like the only difference in the names is 'b' vs. 'B'. So page names are case-sensitive.) To handle/prevent cases like this, we should presumably have a convention for capitalization in page names. That would at least tell us which of the pages should survive (with the merged content) and which should become a redirect to the other. (In Wikipedia, the convention is uppercase only on the first word and proper nouns.)
Normally, I think the way to nominate a merge is via the Talk (Discussion) page of the affected articles. Looks like Wwoods has already done that for the two articles of your specific example. Jmdyck 03:15, 21 May 2006 (PDT)

I was thinking that it might be a good idea to add a note to the paragraph on Short Pages that the Jargon definition-pages are a bit of a special case, and are being kept as short, basic definitions on purpose. Just a thought. Kraester 22:46, 28 May 2006 (PDT)
