A [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Article_Naming_Guidelines&diff=131422&oldid=113184 unique ID] would offer the benefit of being able to match articles in different, possibly unknown languages without infringing on translated articles' usability. The current scheme requires the title to be in English, which is clearly awkward for ''translation'' efforts. [[User:Lavandero|Lavandero]] 20:06, 18 February 2011 (EST)
:The current i18n situation is not ideal, but this proposal seems needlessly complex. Please find our ongoing internationalization discussion at [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=95360 International Wikis (2010 edition)]. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 11:53, 24 February 2011 (EST)
::No thanks. I'm not going to have 5 accounts for talking to (what should be) the same people.
::And the ID could be automated by the mediawiki, so the the complexity would be offloaded. Of course, no one's going to write a patch if there's no interest. [[User:Lavandero|Lavandero]] 22:50, 24 February 2011 (EST)

Article title capitalization

I think this page should contain capitalization guidelines for the titles of the articles. --Liquen 03:42, 15 December 2011 (EST)

I agree. I'd say the Wikipedia policy is a good start. ~ Filam (talk) 14:53, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
This topic was being discussed also in Help talk:Style#Title case, and it seems there is some divergence of opinions, can we continue discussing there? :) -- Kynikos (talk) 11:48, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
