Talk:Involuntary Ejection

From Grand Theft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Suggesting the article be renamed "involuntary ejection" to also cover a similar ejection from motorbikes, a feature present since GTA1. The current contents of this article can be placed in a "car" section. - ZS 15:30, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

I think this page should be renamed "Involuntary ejection", with the lower-case 'e'. It isn't a name, and doesn't warrant a capital letter (not all GTA Wiki pages are fully capitalised, see for example "Controversy in the GTA series). There are other articles that could stand to be de-capitalised as well, 'Consumer Electronics', for example (I think even 'Consumer electronics in the GTA series' would be a better title for that one, as the existing one's a bit obscure). 'In-Game Logos', 'In-Game Products'... Samadriel 19:39, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

You would have to ask Gboyers to change that policy.--Spaceeinstein 20:06, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

As I explained on my talk page, it is GTW policy to use title case for titles. See Project:Consistency for the full explanation of that. As for adding "in the GTA series" onto the end of every title, "list of" to the start, that is completely unnecessary. Titles are used for so many things, notably for links and for users searching. Long unweildy titles are unnecessary, and I try to cut them down as much as possible (whilst still being accurate and usable). Also, we also use the abbreviation "GTA" except on the actual pages which use the full name, such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. And don't get me started on adding brackets as if they were categories (like "PC Version"). If we followed the wikipedia policy of having page descriptions instead of titles, we could have hundreds of pages like: List of Safehouses in Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City - which would be insane and unusable. Just my preference, but I'm open to discuss it if you think there are benefits to other methods. Gboyers talk 22:00, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Obviously it's unnecessary to routinely use "in the GTA series" on a GTA wiki; I merely suggest it (or "in GTA", or suchlike) for 'Consumer electronics' for clarity's sake, because that title could just as easily apply to a list of media GTA has been published for.
