This page contains information about naming conventions for articles.
Names for characters
Generally, characters should have the first letters of their names and surnames capitalized.
- Obi-Wan Kenobi instead of Obi-Wan kenobi
- Darth Revan instead of Darth revan
Any characters' titles should not be in the name of the article. Darth is not considered a title but a name, therefore it is allowed to be in the name title.
- Palpatine instead of Emperor Palpatine
- John Smith instead of Captain John Smith
For articles such as droid lines or system names, unless the name contains (or is) a proper noun, none of the words should be capitalized.
- Corellian system instead of Corellian System (the same applies for sector names)
- B-1 battle droid instead of B-1 Battle Droid
If an article does not have a known name, either because the author does not wish to create a name or a name has not been provided in source material such as fan fiction, "unidentified" should be used in the title.
- Unidentified Plagues apprentice
- Unidentified religious order (Tatooine)
Character article titles should have the full name of the person instead of partial names or nicknames, unless a character was generally known by a shortened version of a name.
- Ussej Padric Bac instead of Ussej Bac
- But Rin Sakaros instead of Katherine Valadyn Sakaros
Use clone troopers' numbers instead of their nicknames in article titles. Nicknames may be used if a trooper's numerical designation is not known.
- Example: CC-2224 instead of Cody.
Round brackets (parentheses) should be used to create disambiguation articles; in that manner we can recognise characters who share the same name. Example: Revan (Jedi) and Revan (Sith). Remember to put a space before the first bracket.
Two or more editors could want to write some fanon involving a specific character (for example you could want to write something about Revan). Proposed solutions:
1 - Create a disambiguation page (example "Revan") containing the related links (examples: Revan (MaulYoda) and Revan (Ewoksfist)) if the character has different authors.
2 - Create paragraphs into the article (example Revan) with subdivisions to distinguish the various versions (in this manner: ==MaulYoda== ==Ewoksfist==).
Name vehicles, aircraft, and starships according to their designation and function, and common nickname if they have one, but do not include manufacturer name. For example: T-65 X-wing starfighter instead of Incom X-wing, or X-wing starfighter, or T-65.
