FamilySearch Wiki:Naming conventionsEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
This page offers best practices in naming articles, categories, images, files, and templates.
Special rules for templates
Spaces in the name are allowed, e.g. Template:Train topics. The first character (only) is not case-sensitive, so Template:Cleanup and Template:Cleanup are the same template, but Template:Cfd and Template:CfD are not.
The template name in general should be short. Many on Wikipedia are abbreviations.
Only the system admin can create a namespace. Namespaces should only be created after much discussion. The name should be a single word.
