GenWiki:Naming conventions

From GenWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Naming conventions is a list of guidelines on how to appropriately create and name pages.

Generally, Article naming should give priority to what the majority of English speakers would most easily recognize, with a reasonable minimum of ambiguity, while at the same time making linking to those articles easy and second nature.

In addition to following the naming conventions it is also important to follow the linking conventions. Following consistent conventions in both naming and linking makes it more likely that links will lead to the right place.

It is important to note that these are conventions, not rules written in stone. As Wikipedia grows and changes, some conventions that once made sense may become outdated. But when in doubt, follow convention.
