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.

Doesn't really matter. My goal in getting the C-evo HOWTO up here is so people playing C-evo have an introductory-level text getting them started with C-evo. I’ve written the text, it is done, and I’ve moved on (back to working on my DNS server project, which I want to finish up by mid-2010). Strenholme 18:36, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
Great contribution there, Strenholme! I may add a few links now that we are settling on page naming standards. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 23:20, November 26, 2010 (UTC)


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. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 23:20, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
