The one rule to remember
one rule to bind them all
- As in Wikipedia.en, only the first word of every page is capitalized, unless some words are capitalized in the English language (i.e. proper nouns, days of week, etc.).
Achievements and ribbons
ever managed to spell Category:Curse of Unawareness consolation prize correctly?
- Achievement pages shall include the word "achievement". Consolation prize pages shall include the word "consolation prize".
- The corresponding ribbon shall be named [[Template:X]] for the X achievement or consolation prize.
- The corresponding category shall be named identical to the achievement.
- The numeric format for a graticule page is 50,11 (with comma). The comma is left away in most other instances where a graticule is mentioned. It's a bad convention.
- Standardization of graticule names: Within the United States and Canada, graticules that cross state or national borders don't represent too much of a problem except for possible confusion. In other neighboring countries, that may be a major issue in the future. Example: Israel/Jordan or Turkey/Greece. The current standard of naming graticules by major city within the graticule will be problematic in the future and should be addressed now. Any ideas? --Sartakh 21:41, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
These are named "YYYY-MM-DD N E", where...
- YYYY is the year (four digits);
- MM is the month (two digits, with leading zero if necessary);
- DD is the day (two digits, with leading zero if necessary);
- N is the latitude (one or two digits, no leading zero, preceded by negative sign if necessary);
- E is the longitude (one, two or three digits, no leading zero, preceded by negative sign if necessary).
- Avoid words in page titles that have variant English spellings (e.g., -ise/-ize, -our/-or, and the doubled "l" in participles)
- ... and if you can't avoid it, make a redirect from any valid spelling.
