move to 527 organization?[edit]

The term 527 Organization is more common than 527 Group. I recommend moving the article to 527 Organization and putting a redirect at 527 Group. Mdchachi|Talk 18:20, 14 May 2004 (UTC)

I get 1900 hits for "527 group", 2700 for "527 organization", and 3800 for "527 committee", so it probably ought to go to committee, with redirects from 527 group and 527 organization. Meelar 18:24, 14 May 2004 (UTC)
I still vote for "527 Organization" because they are legally referred to as "organizations" on the IRS forms. Mdchachi|Talk 19:10, 14 May 2004 (UTC)
Works for me, then. Capitalized "O" in organization, or no? Meelar 19:13, 14 May 2004 (UTC)

527 group and Wiki colors[edit]

The Web page wiki/527_group has the wrong colors for some of the 527 groups shown, even though they are coded properly (style="background:#DDEEFF" for blue, and "background:#FFE8E8" for red). For example, America Coming Together and Joint Victory Campaign are correctly labeled in blue, and Progress for America is correctly labeled in red, but Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and the Club for Growth (with the code #FFE8E8" for red) are shown in blue, and the groups Democratic Victory & Laborers Union (with the code #DDEEFF) are shown in red.

Comment moved from Wikipedia:General complaints.

That's because the name/text is a wikilink. It displays red if there is no page with the name linked to, and blue if there is. As a result, some have blue text on a red background and vice versa. --Zagsa 19:35, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Is one of these, forthcoming, or does it usually come later in the cycle when there are more organizations created? Brian Pearson 01:45, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
