I know that we are barely even on the way to a full fledged wiki, and I know this may seem weird, but what are we going to do about the style of the wiki? No, not the visual appeal, but the style of the way things are written. For example, are we going to refer to the game as RoS, Remnants of Skystone, Skystone, Remnants, what? Something like this may seem like it is worthless, but a consistent style across the wiki will make it overall more effective, and make it look nicer to the eye for most people. I mean, if a thing is something like "Potion of Healing", having it show up a "Healing Potion" every other page could lead to some problems, confusing people. What do you all think?

I think this is important, and we need to set out some clear style guides. Having templates helps, a little, but we need something more clear. Here are a few of my suggestions:
- Items are referred to by their in-game name. No exceptions.
- The game is Remnants of Skystone. The world the game takes place in is called Skystone. You shouldn't refer to anything as "RoS" or "Remnants".
- It is acceptable to drop "Etherillium" off the beginning of Tubes and Geodes.

Well if we define Remnants of Skystone as being RoS in the very beginning of an article (As most wikis do with long names), that should totally be fine. And we can do the same thing to tubes, and geodes. And referring to items as their in game names should be mandatory, always.RoSociety0 03:05, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
So the full name is used at least once in each article, then the abbreviation can be used after that? That seems fine. Does anyone want to write up a style guide? --Jabor 03:13, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
I'll start it. As for the names of items, I can see it being a problem if they get to long.... Angel14995 03:17, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Exceptionally long item names can use the Name (abbr.) syntax at their first mention, and the abbreviation afterwards, if it really gets to be a problem. --Jabor 03:27, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
