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)
