This page details how this wiki is (generally) organised and structured. It was created as part of WikiProject Cleanup to bring some clarity to the wiki structures.

Pages

Page naming convention

Please follow Wikipedia capitalising naming conventions: For multiword page titles, leave the second and subsequent words in lowercase unless the title phrase is a proper noun that would always occur capitalized, even in the middle of a sentence.

Do not use CamelCasePageTitles in which words are jammed together with no spaces - MediaWiki allows us to use spaces as in natural language. The exception to this would be where the page title is the name of something which does typically have its words jammed together e.g. "OpenLayers".

Prefixes in page titles have been used heavily in the past (e.g. the 'WikiProject' prefix). This is mostly a cumbersome legacy, but not one we can easily rectify at this stage. Moving all such pages would be too big a task. However creating new page title prefixing schemes is strongly discouraged. Use natural language page titles, and cross-link a set of pages to create linking structures in the content of the pages themselves. Please refer to the Wiki organisation for the current discussion on this topic.

Page type Current Naming convention Suggestions Infobox template Categories
MapProject Pages
Places Sometimes prefixed with WikiProject, sometimes in Country:City format (eg Canada:{location} or France:{location}) Unify ALL names. Suggest Place as page name, using Place (Location) as needed. Template:Country Template:Place Sometimes 'Cities in X', sometimes area name.
Features Name of feature (either plural or singular). Often a redirect to the appropriate tag/key. Template:Feature Category:Features Category:Feature
Features in a place <Place_Name>_<feature> (eg United Kingdom trams) Simplify naming using Feature (Place) Template:PlaceFeature Category:Feature Category:Project in place
