These are only proposed guidelines. See the talk page to discuss changes.

Naming Guidelines

  • Abbreviations, regardless of popularity, are not acceptable for use in the name or content of an article. Redirect all abbreviations to the main article, and make a parenthetical note of common abbreviations in the introductory paragraph.

  • Single-barrel Shotgun
  • Double-barrel Shotgun

Sprites and Images

  • Sprites and images of the "old" models are acceptable to use for comparison to the "new" models. However the newest models should be used in all other instances.

Quake Team Fortress

  • All Quake Team Fortress Information should be should be set apart from the rest of the article, and placed in its own subsection. This is done merely to avoid confusion regarding which game the information in the article is referring to.
