This is the wiki's policy on naming articles
- Articles should be named according to the titles given within any of the games, as this will be the likeliest search term to be used.
- Since ships will likely use the same name multiple times throughout the series, ships should be disambiguated using race titles, following a "<shipname> (<racename>)" title standard.
- Disambiguation pages should be used at <shipname> to help users find pages.
- No ship articles should use their class name as an article title. Class names should only be mentioned in a trivia note with a suitable reference.
- Locations and missions should be named exactly as they are stated within the games. There are some exceptions to this: see the exceptions list below.
- With some exceptions, no article should include dashes or tildes within the title. These should be substituted for a colon (:) or removing unnecessary text (eg Deep Space - Turanic Raider Planetoid should become Turanic Raider Planetoid)
- In some games, the mission name may be the same as another mission. There are two ways to separate each:
- Place a number after the second mission of the same name (eg HW Campaign: Great Wastelands II)
- Use the alternative name given in brackets for such missions (eg HWC Campaign: Tel Sector)
- In Homeworld 2, a single mission might have multiple names. Preference should be given to the name used within the mission itself (and not the mission name given on the mission choice screen). A note should be made on the respective article of the alternative mission names.
