模板:簡述方針
這是命名方針,旨在討論如何命名文章的標題,以確保任何人在輸入遊戲內容時可以找到他們想找的資訊。這個方針確保使用者介面和遊戲介面的外掛模組可以從遊戲內準確的連結到正確的資訊。詳閱命名指南以獲得更多資訊。

一般規則[]

我們嘗試使用遊戲內最常用的名稱。在絕大多數的情況下,這些資料來源是提供我們要幹麻或是怎麼做的名稱的主要來源。請使用下列的規則和一些嘗試:

  • 任務而言,文章必須要完全符合你的任務日誌內所顯示的名稱,而非在你的對話視窗中的其他訊息。
  • 怪物和 NPC而言,文章必須完全符合顯示在怪物頭頂的名稱,而非顯示在遊戲記錄檔內的其它名稱。
  • 區域和特殊地點而言,文章必須要完全符合當你抵達該區域的時候顯示在螢幕上的名稱,而非出現在任務日誌或地圖、記錄檔內的迷稱。
  • 法術和技能而言,文章必須完全符合你的知識書中的名稱,而非任何顯示在視窗中給你購買或製作的法術名。
  • 陣營關係而言,文張泌須完全符合你的個人資訊視窗中所顯示的陣營關係條的名稱,而非任何在你的對話視窗中出現的名稱。
  • 道具和裝備而言,文張泌須完全符合你的檢視視窗所顯示的名稱。

這些將在下文有更完整的說明。

任務文章[]

任務必須要完整的依照它們顯示於 EQ2 任務日誌中的名稱來命名,而非任何顯示在你的對話視窗中的名稱。要記住在許多情況下,美式英語不允許任務名稱字首大寫。而即使在遊戲中有命名錯誤的狀況,文章的標題也必須要完全符合。如果一個任務可以重複,那麼要注意不要在文章標題中打上 "repeatable"。

如果有兩個或更多的任務是使用相同的名稱,但是由不同的 NPC 所給予的,你應該透過以下方式來澄清它們:

  1. 使一篇篇文章共用相同的任務名稱,接著
  2. 分別替該任務開啟不同但名稱相同的文章,但是透過不同的起始區域來澄清它們。舉例來說 An Important Delivery 這個任務有兩個版本,一個叫做 An Important Delivery (Lesser Faydark) 而另一個叫做 An Important Delivery (Kylong Plains)。一個單一頁面創建用來標示該任務名稱,而在內文中則分別是兩個不同版本任務的連結,分別以不同的起始區域來區分。

有名稱的怪物文章[]

有名稱的怪物文章應該完全符合怪物在遊戲中顯示於頭頂上的名稱。如果遊戲中該怪物有不同的版本但是以相同的名稱出現,你應該要透過以下方式來澄清:

  1. 使一篇文章共用不同版本有名稱的怪物的名稱,接著
  2. 分別替它們開啟內容不同但名稱相同的文章,再依照難度 (例如 solo、heroic 或 epic 等) 或它們出現的區域來澄清。

舉例來說,Zha Gu'Lau 出現在遊戲中至少五個不同的地方。而澄清的頁面列出各個不同的地點,例如 Zha Gu'Lau (Feerrott)

怪物文章[]

怪物文章應該要完全符合怪物在遊戲中顯示的名稱,包含任何顯示於怪物頭上的連接詞例如 "an," "an" 或 "the"。如果遊戲中該怪物有不同的版本但是以相同的名稱出現,你應該要透過以下方式來澄清:

  1. 使一篇文章以同一個名稱代表該怪物不同版本時的名稱,接著
  2. 分別替它們開啟不同內容但名稱相同的文章,再依照難度 (例如 solo、heroic 或 epic 等) 或它們出現的區域來澄清。

NPC articles[]

Non-player characters, or NPCs, should exactly match the name of the character that appears in game directly over the NPC's head. If multiple versions of the same character appear in game with exactly the same name, you should disambiguate them by:

  1. making an article with the name that is shared by the various versions of the character, then
  2. making an article for each of the versions that share the name but distinguish them by the zone in which they appear.

For example, the NPC, Zha Gu'Lau, involved in the Cazic-Thule deity quest line, appears in multiple zones of the game. A disambiguation page was created for the NPC name, and that page points to each of the various versions of Zha Gu'Lau that appear during the quest line.

Zones and points of interest articles[]

All zones and points of interest should exactly match the special displayed message that appears on your screen as when you enter an area. There are no known cases of duplicate naming of zones or points of interest at present, but should another item or creature in game require it, follow standard rules for disambiguation by placing the word "zone" or the abbreviation "POI" in parentheses after the names as appropriate.

In many cases, names of zones that appear in the screen conflict with zones listed in the quest journal or the title of any maps in game. The message that appears on the screen always takes precedence over the quest journal name or the title of a map or any name that appears in the log files.

Spells and skills[]

All magic caster spells and fighter skills should exactly match the name of the spell or skill that appears in the character's knowledge book. Because there are frequently conflicts with spell and skill names, do not use the name that appears anywhere else, including windows where the items are for sale. When known conflicting names exist in game, create an article with the knowledge book name as the main page and also create an article for the conflict that redirects to the correct name in the knowledge book.

Disambiguate those spells that share titles with other items or monsters in game. For example, Nightshade is a disambiguation page linking to three separate pages: Nightshade (Spell) (the Necromancer pet spell), Nightshade (Title) (the predator prefix title), and a plant sample from a quest.

If multiple versions of the same spell for different character classes appear in game with exactly the same name, you should disambiguate them by:

  1. making an article with the name that is shared by the various classes, then
  2. making an article for each of the versions that share the name but distinguish them by the class that uses them.

For example, the Evade spell is used by several classes. The main article, Evade, is a disambiguation page linking to Evade (Brigand) and Evade (Swashbuckler), two of the classes that specifically use this spell.

Factions[]

All factions in game should match the name of the faction listed in the character's persona window list, including all leading articles (a, an, the). Articles describing factions are always named with the name of the faction, followed by the word "Faction" in parentheses. For example, The Ironforge Exchange (Faction).

Guild pages[]

Guild pages should always appear with the name of the guild and the word "guild" in parentheses. For example, the guild Vainglory plays on the Blackburrow server. Their guild page name appears as Vainglory (Guild).

Personal articles and player characters[]

All personal articles including player character pages should be located as user pages or subpages of the author's user page. For example, user Kodia has a game character by the same name and has chosen that name as her user page name by which most people know her. She also has a personal article page tracking the house-placeable books she has collected in game. This library list is included as a subpage of Kodia's user page.
