Capitalization of game titles

Recommended Posts

Capitalize all, no stylization, I would even remove the ":" (two dots) from any titles, that way most pages would open directly instead of using redirects, it would also look cleaner. The wiki search algorithm sucks, this isn't Google where you can drunkenly type whatever you want and still find your result, if I can streamline the search process I'm all up for it.

 

I would also like to see tables and headers with proper capitalization ("and, of, the" etc, would not be capitalized in the tables).

I wouldn't mind experimenting with this, but people on the wiki are kinda stubborn when it comes down to any changes. If it was up to me we could play around with it and see what works better.

The standard has been to use title case, although it seems this wasn't actually mentioned in the editing guide yet.

 

Many of the differing pages have been made by Vetlebot; these get names as given on the Steam store. There probably isn't an ideal solution for this (filtering the titles when importing would break things like NBA 2K18 where the name contains acronyms).

MediaWiki searching has never been great, but sacrificing human readability of titles isn't the best solution.

I'm not opposed to changing the case for sections and tables, but this would need further feedback since section headings are part of the actual page text (whereas the tables themselves are templates so can be tweaked on a whim).
