Disposition[edit]

The article really needs a paragraph on the final current disposition of PEPE: is it still currently in use, was it scrapped (when?), was it really vapor, etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.232.210.150 (talk) 16:13, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Parallel element processing ensembleParallel Element Processing Ensemble – Tony blew it; now we need an RM to move it back. Sources verify that PEPE was a specific computer, not just an acronym for a type or technology. Dicklyon (talk) 06:47, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. indeed, PEPE is a proper name, not generic, and therefore should have each word capitalized per WP:TITLEFORMAT. Jeh (talk) 07:07, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. As per Dicklyon's rationale. Nageh (talk) 10:49, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support and suggest quick closure by an admin. This was my fault. Tony (talk) 11:44, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. It was completely obvious that the title was a proper name and each word should be capitalized. mbeychok (talk) 15:25, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I disagree. I looked in sources to decide. It's easy to see why Tony might interpret it as generic; but he should have checked sources to see how it's treated. I say this because there have been many other articles that Tony downcased, when others claimed it was proper name, and my checking of sources found that it was not consistently capitalized in sources and therefore Tony was right; in most cases, the capitalized uses are in defining the acronym, and that's not enough to make something a proper name.
