Help with wiki standards. Edit

Hi BroDavid, I had a question about whether or not one should spell words like troll, eshu, nocker, pooka, and so forth as a proper noun, always capitalized, or as a regular noun.  The reason I ask, there are many wikis where these words are used as proper nouns {Eshu, Nunnehi, Riverhag, Inanimae}, many that don't use them as proper nouns {Troll, Pooka, Redcap, Boggans}, and a few that use them as a mix of both {Nocker before I converted it :\ }.  In the core book for "Changeling the Dreaming: 2nd Edition", they don't use them as proper nouns, so my guess would be that we should follow suit with the main book, however, the wiki may have a different set of standards.  What would you suggest?

Thanks for your time, SensibleCenobite (talk) 21:40, September 21, 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the swift response.  I think you're right, treat kith names as proper nouns when they're a title to an article and a link, but don't do that in the main text.  I'll take this up with his Majesty Mr. Russel Hammond.  On a side note, for someone that's only been on this wiki since April of 2017, you're a posting machine.

His Majesty said to go along with whatever the most experienced editors do, so I'll use your suggestions above. SensibleCenobite (talk) 04:37, September 25, 2019 (UTC)

Request about Images Edit

Hello Bro David,

I've noticed you're uploading lots of pictures to the Wiki. Can I please make a request? If you know or can find out the artist, please attribute their work to them by putting the image in the Art by [artist name] category. Most artists have a category created for them by now. I've been trying to credit the artists for as many images as I can, and it would really help if you could do this when you upload - especially since you're probably more familiar with the Changeling illustrators than I am. - Small Earth Cat (talk) 01:56, July 24, 2020 (UTC)

Speaking of which, do you recognize the artist of this, this, and this? "H." made tons of illustrations, mainly Changeling character portraits, but I have no idea who they are. - Small Earth Cat (talk) 02:11, July 24, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Bro David. I appreciate it. And I think you're likely right about Jeff Holt. - Small Earth Cat (talk) 15:26, July 24, 2020 (UTC)
