Other games, since the merger with Civ4 and Civ5 wikis, are all standardizing on the short forms, e.g. [[Temple (Civ4)]] and [[Units (Civ5)]]. C-evo should follow that, so as to maximize time-saving with templates etc. Even where a name is unique to C-evo, there may be value in having the actual page in the standard form, with a redirect to it for easy text-writing. — [[User:Robin Patterson|Robin Patterson]] [[User talk:Robin Patterson|(Talk)]] 23:20, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Forums: Index > C-evo forum > Standards for page names related to C-evo



For uniformity and predictability, as well as for easy relating to other games that use similar terms, we should decide a number of things about page naming before starting too many.

Related discussions are on Forum:Rearrangement of categories.

I rather like the short forms, e.g. Temple (C-evo) and Units (C-evo).

Anything unique to C-evo needs no distinguishing feature in its name.

I see some of the C-evo HOWTO subpages use colons, as is the standard on the Towns, Villages and Cities wiki. That has some appeal, but the use of standard subpages (using a slash) has its advantages too, one being that they have an automatic link to the base page.
