I think this section really needs to be cleaned up. I'm going to try and go through and delete poorly titled/redundant pages and create a page for every single hall. Some of this really overlaps with the building category as well. I think agreeing on a good naming standard would help. Take Sherwin, for example: its page would be 'Sherwin Hall' and the building page would be 'Sherwin-Neifert'. Sound good? Also, I'm unclear on how to completely delete a page. I made a bit of a mess tonight before I really decided the best course of action and haven't really cleaned up after myself. Jlane 23:58, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Sounds good. As for the Sherwin vs.Sherwin-Neifert thing, we might do well to redirect pages like Sherwin and Sherwin-Neifert into sections on a single building page, Five-Name or Sherwin-Neifert-Elder-Campbell-Furrow or something like that. That would limit the redundancy as much as possible. Then each building section could have its own section in the article, discussing its quirks, and containing links to the suite pages for that area. As for deleting a page, there is a "delete" tap at the top of this and most other pages. I think you're a sysop, so you should definitely be able to see it. Camozzi 00:27, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Actually, it turns out you're not. I don't know why. But you shouldn't need to delete any of these pages, just make them redirects to the new version. Camozzi 00:29, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Actually, it turns out I was really drunk last night and didn't remember that my first account that I forgot for a while was a sysop, not this one. hah. Johnlane 23:31, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, see, I remembered you being a sysop, and then I couldn't figure out who the other John Lane might have been. Camozzi 23:45, 2 August 2007 (CDT)
