This naming policy is a policy on how articles are named.
The Duck Test Edit
The following should help you determine whether to split, or merge:
- If a weapon looks the same, functions the same, but is named differently, merge.
- If a weapon is named the same, functions the same, but looks differently, merge. (ex. Hypothetical M1911 (World at War) merges with M1911)
- If a weapon is named the same, looks the same, but functions in a drastically different way, split. (ex. Auto Turrets separate from Sentry Gun)
Though originally we titled battles by city (e.g.: "Stalingrad", "Berlin", "Saint-Lô"), it is more proper to title articles about battles starting with some variation of "Battle of" (e.g.: "Battle of Stalingrad", "Battle for Caen", "Second Battle of Tillet").
Characters in the games appear with their name being their rank and their last name. With the problem of people being promoted, titling an article about a character with their rank in the title is a bad idea. What about Private Kelly? Would we title his article "Private Kelly", "Corporal Kelly", or "Sergeant Kelly"? For this reason, articles are to be titled by their names. Not just their last name, their whole name (if available). We would title Kelly's article "Stephen Kelly", rather than just "Kelly".
Levels are named as they are named as in their respective game.
Weapons are named how they are in-game. If, however their name is not given/heard in-game, then use the real life name.
