Pre-rollout Policy Discussion[edit]

Please start discussing here, if you have any concerns regarding this prospective policy. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:33, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Once the kinks have been worked out just make it part of the Manual of Style. There's no real "policy" in this after all, just stylisation guidelines. --Xoid 00:15, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Agree. It fits more into my procedures concept I had, following this post. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 00:28, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


The current version of the policy shows only that BattleMech, DropShips, JumpShips, WarShips and ASF class names are italicized. However, wondering if ProtoMechs should be, as well, I looked in Combat Equipment. In that book, Protos are italicized, while Battle Armor are not. As a proponent of the B-E-D method of consensus, I'm changing the policy here to match that title.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 04:22, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Ground Units addresses this. --Scaletail 22:57, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Mission Change Proposal[edit]

I propose changing this from an uncompleted policy to a Help article, to be further cat'd under the Manual of Style. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:28, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

No apparent concerns regarding this move; assuming consensus and making the change. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 20:39, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Suggested Additions[edit]

Can examples be added that show the proper italics for "named" and "numbered" variants? i.e. AS7-D Atlas Danielle, Black Hawk (Standard) 3, Marauder IIC, and Marauder II C. I don't know if I have the italics correct in these examples, but that is my best interpretation of the policy. Cache (talk) 11:04, 26 November 2014 (PST)
