Proposal 1[edit source]

We don't follow consistent capitalisation on infobox/databox templates. Some have the first word after Infobox/Databox capitalised, such as {{Infobox Item}}, and others don't, such as {{Infobox skill}}. We can:

A) Capitalise the first word after Infobox/Databox
B) Lowercase the first word after Infobox/Databox, except proper nouns or words capitalised by Jagex (eg. skill names)

Proposal 2[edit source]

Move {{Infobox non-player character}} to Template:Infobox NPC.

Discussion[edit source]

Support 1A, 2 - 1) Capitalising the first word after Infobox/Databox highlights the subject of the template. 2) Infobox NPC is easier to type. Habblet (talk|c) 23:43, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Do we need a discussion on this? - like are people actually having disagreements over this, or is it just anticipatory guidance? Personally I'd support capitalizing more things so I'd support 1A. --LiquidTalk 20:25, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Support 1B and 2 - I vehemently oppose unnecessarily capitalising stuff. This isn't German. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:02, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Support 2 - It seems B is prevalent but I don't think consistency is necessary here. 5-x Talk 10:25, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Support 1B and 2 - Per Salix. But we can have redirects so there’s no functional difference at the end of the day. ɳex undique 20:01, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

Closed - there is support to implement proposal 2 and most support to implement proposal 1A. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelTalk page 13:48, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
