CapitalizationEdit

Why was "coutari" capitalized in the article name? Also, the article name in {{Weapon Navbox}} needs to be updated. KenoSarawa (Talk|Contribs) 18:28, September 14, 2015 (UTC)

Because it's an article title. Conventional English usage: the first letter of most words in titles are capitalized. -- BlueResistance (talk) 18:44, September 14, 2015 (UTC)
That's not a solid reason. Article titles in a wiki serve as in-line citation names when that article's subject is mentioned in another article. The only parts of an article name that should be capitalized are the proper noun elements. Capitalizing non-proper nouns means that the article, when cited, must always use an overriding title or link text, and that is not proper wiki organization and formatting. That standard is used on wikipedia and most wikis in the wikia.com domain. Several authors have been working for weeks to remove all unnecessary capitalization from article names. When mentioning "Londo Mollari's coutari" in an article, "coutari" would not be capitalized, and for that reason it should not be capitalized in the article name either.
