that picture is of the university of delaware campus, not delaware state

They are part of the same university structure as the WP article Delaware University says. The campus is in Dover...DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 12:34, 21 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

there is a dover campus for the uni of delaware but it isn't the one for the state uni of delaware, the picture is also misleading because the shooting took place near the memorial gymnasium not memorial hall which are very distant from one another.

Actually they were shot near memorial hall. Thats what the sources say anyways. An yes that is the proper picture. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 13:29, 21 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

they are two separate schools with different campuses, and i think your error stems from the confusion between the memorial hall, at the uni of delaware and the memorial gym at delaware state -- 13:33, 21 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

sorry what i meant to say is that there's a memorial hall both at each of the schools, they're different buildings, on different campuses. the one pictured is the memorial hall at the uni of delaware, not the delaware state university. check out the relevant campus maps: and -- 13:58, 21 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

It's seriously irresponsible to put up a photo of the wrong campus, it'll cause people to get worried needlessly. Just switch to the school logo if no campus photo is available. 14:10, 21 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Requested edit[edit]


Christiana Hospital is in Newark, DE not Newark, NJ. Dough4872 (talk) 02:19, 14 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

One source says that officials said NJ (which matters for wording of a correction notice). One source doesn't say. The other two sources are no longer available. Although DE makes sense, I want to see solid reputable information before issuing a correction notice. --Pi zero (talk) 17:39, 22 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, I'm satisfied. There's one source from the time saying DE (The Washington Post, source used on en.wp), and it's not hard to find sources from a little later that place her in Newark, DE. So I've deployed a correction notice. --Pi zero (talk) 20:52, 22 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
