Policy Talk:BattleTech Style Guide

House vs State[edit]

I know for a lot of old school BT players this might be a bit of a contraversial one but I would like to request that it is formally included in our style guide that the state and ruling family are seperate entities. So House Davion would be the family and Federated Suns the state.--Dmon (talk) 13:13, 3 June 2021 (EDT)

I like that. And I like the section title. Consider it done.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 20:04, 3 June 2021 (EDT)
Thank you, and you put it much more eloquently than I did.--Dmon (talk) 05:42, 4 June 2021 (EDT)
Thank you for *that*. However, I can expect Frabby can cut thru all my flowery BS and make it even more clear.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 08:20, 4 June 2021 (EDT)

Hyperpulse generator style[edit]

Even in its own article use of uppercase and lowercase characters is wildly inconsistent. Sourcebooks and similar products mostly use hyperpulse generator within sentences, which seems a reasonable standard to add to the Style Guide. Madness Divine (talk) 00:25, 6 February 2022 (EST)

Going by gut feeling, the term is (should) usually be spelled all downcase though there may be instances where it reads better when capitalized (when discussing fictional BT technology for example). It should never be spelled in CamelCase though, ie. not with a capital P. Frabby (talk) 02:08, 6 February 2022 (EST)
