Titles don't usually take full capitalization (at least on the Wiki) unless they are names. - Snail 11:41, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Indeed. That makes articles easier to link to when their titles are embedded into a sentence. We don't have a guideline for this here at the FSWiki, though most wikis that I know of use the "Don't capitalize everything" principle. - TopAce 12:17, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Well if you have to remove the capitalization do it in all articles, like Stealthing Ships To Force Target Loss. --- Mobius
      • We'll have to create a bot to do this eventually I think. Though how exactly it's going to discern between names and titles is beyond me. - Snail 12:40, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
        • Or we may leave capitalized names as they are. As far as I'm concerned they're not a big problems...contents are more important. Diverting the contributors' attention to "decapitalization" may be a waste of time. --- Mobius
          • Linking them is more difficult, because you've got to always use the [[article name|how it appears in your sentence]]. Compare: "Some people are concerned about [[upgrading campaigns]]"; "Some people are concerned about [[Upgrading Campaigns|upgrading campaigns]]". - TopAce 13:53, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
            • I've already noticed that, but unless someone is really willing to do that on all articles, well...discussing is a waste of time. --- Mobius

Grammar checking

Would it be better to rename it "Proofreading" to include things like inconsistent use of lingo and differing (often jarring) writing styles between missions?

  • Let's don't rush with major divisions until we have clarified them first. I'm trying to add to the article whatever comes to me in my upgrading experience, so it'll take a while to be done. Also, I think additions to the article should be made by FSCRP team members, only - I'm using this article to provide the team with the basic info so anything that might contradict our choices could cause confusions. Interesting additions should be discussed here on the Talk Page. --- Mobius
    • If you want only FSCRP members to edit this page, don't even submit it. It's not the FSCRP's Wiki. - TopAce 17:37, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
      • I know it may sound selfish, but what's wrong in discussing major changes in the Talk Page? --- Mobius
        • Changing the name of a section isn't that major a change. Adding new sections is, but I don't think that requires to be discussed unless its contents is ambiguous or debatable. - TopAce 19:56, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
          • Changing the name of an empty section is not a big deal, isn't it? Well, in any case, I'm discussing this issue with the rest of the FSCRP team. We'll let you know. --- Mobius
            • I don't see anything on this page that says FSCRP members only. If you want to give them your own rules on how to upgrade a campaign go ahead. Changes would be on topic and relevant. I don't see what reasons you would have for changing them.
