Azurilland Wiki:Naming conventions
- This article is related to the Marriland Wiki's policies.
Whilst naming an article, one should always consider some things:
In naming an article, the first letter must always be capitalized due to technical restrictions; there is no way to not capitalize it, the system will do it for you. It should be like this anyway, except in the case of a brand name that begins with a small letter, such as iMac, iPod or eBay.
If the name of the article is a name, such as Nintendo Co., Ltd., Random Blueberry Productions, or John Smith, all letters which begin a new word should be capitalized . If the article has another word that is not the name of a person or specific name of a place, company, organization, or creature, but still uses a name, format it like John Smith's apples, not capitalizing "apples". So, unless there is a reason for capitalization, don't do it. Generally, just follow what you learned in school; also, do not capitalize words like of, the, or, if, in, or and.
If an article name includes parentheses/brackets, it is asked that the content within said brackets, unless capitalized for good reason, be put in lowercase.
|Capitalization examples chart|
|Proper naming||Improper naming||Reasoning|
|John Paul's computers||John paul's computers||Since Paul is part of the specific name, it should be capitalized|
|Nintendo of America||Nintendo of america||Not only is America the name of a specific country/continent, in this case, it is also part of the company's name|
|Nintendo of America||Nintendo Of America||Of should not be capitalized.|
|Items used in Pokémon Red organized by rarity||Items used in Pokémon Red Organized by Rarity||Organized is a verb and Rarity isn't proper, heretofore, those words do not need to be capitalized.|
|Pokémon (series)||Pokémon (Series)||Series isn't proper, heretofore, those words do not need to be capitalized.|
Use of accented "e" ("é")
Names of things which should contain an "é," should use the "é" rather than an "e;" For example, it should be Pokémon, not Pokemon. Please note that a redirect from the non-accented "e" should also be created (see also: Project:Redirects).
|Proper naming||Improper naming|
|Poké Ball||Poke Ball|
- It should also be noted that "Pokeball," "Pokéball," or "PokéBall" are all improper variations of the word "Poké Ball."
