Article Naming Guidelines
From Monkey Island wiki
At the Monkey Island Wiki we always try to name articles by either the official or most used title for any particular topic on the site. However, we realize that topics, items and even characters may be referred to in a number of ways, therefore creating Redirects becomes necessary (read more about redirects here). We don't have strictly enforced policy for article naming but we do have general guidelines for game titles and characters' names which we try to abide to.
For game titles we go with what the title is represented to be on the official box-art and title screen of the game. For the individual chapters of Tales of Monkey Island we've stuck to using only the Chapter titles, mainly due to length issues (see "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood"). Abbreviations of the game titles such as SMI, MI2 or TMI are used as redirects for the the articles with the proper title of the game.
For Monkey Island 2, some people (including sysops at this wiki) were under the belief that the game's title was simply LeChuck's Revenge, however the title Monkey Island appears prominently both on the game's box-art and title screen. The numeral 2 does not in fact appear on the in-game title screen, creating a discrepancy with the game's box-art. However, most websites (including Wikipedia and GameFAQs) list the game under the title Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, indicating that this is what the game is commonly known as.
For Characters the common practice is to use the full name by which a character is commonly known. For instance Guybrush's article is simply Guybrush Threepwood as that is the name with which most people would refer to the character. However, not wanting to force wiki-writers to using his full name continuously, Guybrush redirects to the main article. We also don't want to use the character's true full name, Guybrush Ulysses Marley-Threepwood because of length although his full name is mentioned at the very beginning of the character's wiki-page.
However, we then have had to make other sorts of naming decisions for characters whose full or real names are not well known. For instance, while Wally B. Feed's full name is mentioned in the second game - in CMI and to most fans he is just Wally. Conversely, while Cobb is referred to as The Loom Guy by many, we've chosen the character's real name for the article as the character primarily exists in the game Loom. LeChuck is not referred to as Captain LeChuck because only his underlings in the games refer to him as such. Titles of characters are only mentioned when it's important for identifying the character: Captain Dread, Captain Blondebeard, King André etc.
