Presumably the argument is that it's SOP as a step at which one goes "eureka!"; but we also have eureka moment, so I abstain for now (although maybe the variability of the phrase indicates that no one version is idiomatic). The lemma should probably be lowercase like that entry, though. - -sche (discuss) 04:47, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
The SOPpiness would perhaps be easier to spot if it were eureka step, but capitalized Eureka doesn't have anything to help me understand what a Eureka step is. Nevertheless, I still think eureka + step isn't sufficient to explain what a eureka step is. —Mahāgaja (formerly Angr) · talk 10:37, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Looks like a mistake for eureka moment to me. SemperBlotto (talk) 10:44, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
There's also eureka effect. --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 10:53, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Move the lemma to lowercase and call it a day. - -sche (discuss) 19:34, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
Kept. No consensus.--Jusjih (talk) 03:38, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
