Ummm, I guess just a quick note that I've made what should be a non-controversial change to the style guide regarding mark up.

Mainly:

  • Explication of mark of titles
  • Explicit restrictions on italics that should be well known in the first place.

The biggest change is the stance on italicizing "RuneScape", which was very misinformed and misguiding. I'm not sure where this rule came from exactly, but I assume it came from a naughty extrapolation of the standards that suggest italicizing video game titles. I won't be trying to actively enforce this or fix all the current misuse, but we might as well have the correct rules up there for someone maybe possibly to probably maybe follow.

But ya, nothing really special here. Just letting you all know. Also, my edit was +1234. That's pretty coolio.

Comment - The italicisation is on almost every usage of "RuneScape". Main page, articles, templates, etc. I never saw the harm in it, why change it now? cqm 08:14, 18 May 2015 (UTC) (UTC)

It's a long standing bad practice. Legacy is never a good reason to continue a bad habit. I'm not actually going to enforce it aggressively or fix all the misuse (mainly because it's context sensitive and would require too much human discretion per page that just makes the task too burdensome), but I believe it's still good to suggest the proper standard.
