Can this page be deleted? (Jonah 18:05, 4 April 2007 (EDT))

To the best of my knowledge, only the SysOp can delete pages. If you're asking whether this page SHOULD be deleted, I was thinking that many people visiting the wiki will probably just type the greek letter name of a Chapter (without the word "Chapter"), which will not take them directly to that Chapter's page. Redirects of this type would fix that problem. Also, redirects from the greek letter abbreviations, particularly those with letters also common to the English alphabet, (ie. "BK") may benefit from redirect pages. In some cases, however, we may want disambigulation pages. For example, "GP" could mean Gamma Pi or Gamma Phi or Gamma Rho, depending on who's typing it, and what abbreviations Chapters are accustomed to using. FreshBoy 10:24, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
misunderstanding on my part. I thought this was a redirect to Beta Kappa and the only difference was the lowercase letter. Agreed now that I am awake, that it should stay. (Jonah 15:09, 5 April 2007 (EDT))
I agree that a redirect page here is useful; I created a similar page for Alpha Rho a few weeks ago for the exact reason mentioned by FreshBoy. Before people start making redirect pages for chapter initials though, there should probably be some discussion (on whatever talk page would be appropriate for that). I'm not convinced they really add value (i.e. if someone was searching for the Beta Kappa Chapter page, would they really just type BK into a search box?), but we can discuss if others feel strongly the other way.
