Should Article type suffix really be recommended?  Working with the Gentoo Wiki I remember almost everybody began naming their articles "HOWTO Dnsmasq" or "Compiz HOWTO".  Because this is an instructional-wiki could we consider this implied?  Also since there are table of content tags available this seems to be repetative.  Possibly this would be better to call it Naming Suggestions for pages that aren't howtos?  For example, "AUR Guidelines" and "Virtual Machine FAQ".  --[[User:Gen2ly|Gen2ly]] 08:36, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

Article type suffix

Should "Article type suffix..." really be recommended? Working with the Gentoo Wiki I remember almost everybody began naming their articles "HOWTO Dnsmasq" or "Compiz HOWTO". Because this is an instructional-wiki could we consider this implied? Also since there are table of content tags available this seems to be repetative. Possibly this would be better to call it Naming Suggestions for pages that aren't howtos? For example, "AUR Guidelines" and "Virtual Machine FAQ". --Gen2ly 08:36, 19 June 2009 (EDT)
