Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Nomenclature

This forum will serve as the inauguration of a final system for choosing article titles. It reflects consensus on wiki-wide nomenclature. The highest weighted name will become its article's title, with other notable, relevant names included as alternative names, involving the use of redirects and an "also known as" sentence in the article.

The title is determined by weighing the sources for a given name, both in terms of quality and quantity, on a case-by-case basis. The names and their sources are recorded in tables below for future reference. This forum only extends to the subjects which have no single, unequivocal name. Truistic names are not included, and do not need to cite any sources.

Note that this forum is subject to the capitalization policy, and does not itself factor capitalization. However, it does factor in spacing, hyphenation, and other stylization practices, but only on a case-by-case basis, as determined by the sources.

As this system was implemented, certain rules of thumb were established through consensus:

  • In the event of multiple strategy guides for the same game presenting conflicting names, preference should be given to the one with a higher rate of agreement with other sources. For example, Piggyback's Jak II guide is in agreement with other sources at a rate 25% higher than BradyGames' Jak II guide,[1] so although the Jak and Daxter Wiki is US-centric and the latter guide is a US strategy guide, the former guide is preferred despite being European.
  • Sourced names that are too broad (e.g. "fish lurker"), generic (e.g. "purple lurker"), or deemed otherwise inapplicable under contextual discretion were disqualified from use except in extreme, unavoidable instances. However, they were still recorded here for posterity.

Original discussions took place during public wiki chat sessions. Further discussion can take place on this forum's talk page. Resource-related inquiries may be left at User talk:Jak Himself.
