comment When a title is used as a common noun, should it be capitalised?
@EdwinAshworth, yes, that's exactly how I'm referring to it, but if the term Engineering Request in this instance refers to the abstract noun version of the document that doesn't yet exist, doesn't that make it a common noun?

comment Is an implied proper noun *really* a proper noun?
@EdwinAshworth I wonder if the audience of the comment would affect whether it was perceived as a proper noun or a common noun? i.e. Somebody who knew he meant a specific University would treat it as a proper noun, but somebody that wasn't aware of the specific university might expect it's a common noun? In terms of, Would you say 'It's back to School next week', to be perfectly honest, I don't know, hence my question.

comment What is the correct way to pluralize an acronym?
+1; great question, but whilst not meaning to sound overly pedantic, ATM is an initialism, not an acronym.
