Page Policies

References & Fictional Content

General Disclaimers and Legal Stuff


This policy describes the way that pages are to be named in the wiki. This is to add regularity and consistency in the naming of all wiki pages.

Game entity pages

Game entity pages refers to pages marked with Wiki Link blackbook.jpg icon in game: citizen profiles and newspapers.

  • Game entity pages should be named exactly as they are in game (this ensures that the wiki link works).
  • When a game entity is properly spelled with a special character (accent mark, tilde, umlaut, etc) the page should be named as it is in game, however, the editor can use the display title template to change the appearance of the page name (see Editing for details).

Region and country pages

Region and country pages are also game entity pages, however, due to a current issue, entities with more than word in the title do not match the wiki page name.

  • Pages for regions and country should be named as they are in the game.
  • Pages with more than one word in the title will have a redirect created for proper linking at the discretion of sysops.

War pages

Wars between two countries are usually named: - Aggressor country vs Defendant country (ex. Poland vs Spain)

  • Wars between many entities such as a world or regional world are to be named by the consensus in the Bar, or by references from the game.

Other pages

  • Pages should not begin with an article (A, An, The) (example: Philippine Congress, not The Philippine Congress).
    • Exception is when it is the proper name of something.
  • Pages should begin with a capital letter, all subsequent words should be lowercase (example Trade embargo not Trade Embargo).
    • Exception is when it is a title of an article.

Exceptions

This is the list of article names that are used in the game with some or all capitalized letters:

These are also exceptions:

There are some other exceptions, but it is better to use the rule mentioned above about capitalization.

Pages other than English

  • Pages other than English should have an English page created first and then the translated page should be named with the language after it. (example: Profile/Italiano)
  • More information about this can be found on Help:Translating Pages

Pages that begin with lowercase

Though many pages begin with lowercase letters - such as "eRepublik" - the page name is Capitalized by default (ERepublik). To change this use the display title template {{DISPLAYTITLE: eRepublik Rising}}.

Images aka files

Next images should be named as following:

Full list can be viewed in the image policy.

Alliance pages

Alliance pages should be named with full name of the alliance. If the alliance has abbreviation, a redirect will be created from the abbreviation pointing to the English version of alliance page.
