Shouldn't the standard form be MacArthur rather than the two word version? SemperBlotto 15:03, 15 November 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for the Welcome {:-)


I might well have thought so, but followed the form of the only other "Mac" that I found defined, which I believe was MacKenzie and was also a redirect... If that's not correct then a standard needs to be set. Doc 17:31, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

  • My recommendation is always to do what you think is correct in these cases. You could even correct Mac Kenzie by moving it to MacKenzie (use the "Move" tab). Nobody will ever criticize you for being bold (probably!). SemperBlotto 17:44, 15 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Thanks, on Wikipedia the standard seems to be without the space, which I believe is the more common and correct usage, but both are seen and there should at least be a standard within the reference, I believe. Doc 17:53, 15 November 2005 (UTC)
