Category names
:If the category title refers to the contents of the category, then it should be in the plural. For example, if it is a category that contains strategy guides, it only makes sense to call the category "Strategy guides". But a category name like "Community" can be singular, because the category contains articles relating to the concept "Community", and not articles on individual communities.

::Sounds like a decent enough rule. I'll modify the style guide to reflect that. [[User:Meneth|~ Meneth]] ([[User talk:Meneth|talk]]) 00:40, 22 April 2013 (CEST)
==Article title capitalization==
It is standard in encyclopedias and wikis to capitalize only the first letter of an article title, unless grammatical rules dictate otherwise (e.g. if it is a proper noun). However, many things in the game use capitals even when they ordinarily would not. Usually, we speak of a "sphere of influence" without capitals. But I believe the game calls it a "Sphere of Influence". I think things are bound to get confusing if we deviate from what the game calls things, so I suggest the following rule: capitalize only the first letter (which is automatic), unless grammatical rules dictate otherwise or unless the game itself uses different capitalization.
