Wiki is a nice first pass or quick and easy to locate source of information, but not always the most reliable. Someone now, after the fact, could try to clean up the existing conflicts on the Wiki site to show that when the University of Arkansas is mentioned the location of the campus is always mentioned as well. If that was to happen it would not make the Wiki source correct or reliable just because of the lack of conflicts as to how the data is presented.
I agree that someone in the know needs to provide the official/legal source information as to the designated name for the Arkansas state university that just happens to be located in the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Somewhere is located the information as to how and when the University of Arkansas located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, got it’s name, who legally controls the name, what is the process for modifying the name, when if ever has the name been officially/legally changed, and what are the name changes if any that have happened?
Here is the official University of Arkansas System site. They list the colleges. It says University of Arkansas, Fayetteville which is different than the others such as UALR, which is listed as University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Since there has been complaints about other schools, I looked up the Texas system, Texas is listed as UT-Austin (the official Texas site says University of Texas at Austin). I looked up the Alabama system, Alabama (Crimson Tide) is listed as UA. I also looked up the Missouri system, it lists Mizzou as University of Missouri-Columbia.
So, the points about not using everyone’s official names does have some validity.
