Article title capitalization
==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.

:Yeah, grammatical capitalization seems the most reasonable. Proper nouns are to be capitalized, and that should be near all. I'm not entirely sure what we should do with examples where the game capitalization differs from what's grammatically correct though; I think in most cases we should probably deffer to the grammatically correct way.
