Let's discuss the size issue Edit

This is a big subject, with a few people who might recognize and dispute it, from time to time it has and will appear again so here's the talk page.

Case-sensitivityEdit

First of all all the links in the wikipedia are case-sensitive. Wikis use programming to navigate, and sometimes it is necessary to have words with different letter sizes in a program. Which in turn gives use case-sensitive programming.

Some names are more than two words. So we'd end up with a question of which words should be capital. All of the words, none of the words, or just the first word? Well that's the issue. If we decided every combination of a five word page suited that the first letter is a different case it can become very messy.

Also, if we place a specific syntax goal on page management, we can easily use special features of the wiki which already detect the pages that all point there. We can make a special program that is found in the page which recognizes the page title without requiring a higher level programming language like java to parse all the strings, so less technical programmers can make improvements, or just require much less work to have a special program work (specifically based on page name).

Game rules to naming towards normal language rules Edit

In Normal Language It Is Considered Very Strange When Every Single Word Has A Capital At The Start.

In many games however it has become a sort of tradition because it looks cool to start words with a capital, refer to items with a capital at each word's start and sometimes, if those items are special, use all capital words. That is however CONSIDERED SHOUTING IF YOU USE IT IN A SENTENCE.

This game chose differently, and uses normal language rules. Therefor i am also in favor of using the normal language rules and only have the first word of a sentence containing a capital and all names of specific persons, items, and so on. Blacksmith, tailor, carpenter and such are not specific names. They are referring to a fairly common group of people. Names of quests are indeed names for those quests,

Linking to a page is not case sensitive if it already exists. New pages or none existing pages should in my opinion always follow the normal language rules.
