Dans-Crownorange.png Earlier, when I was assisting LevL with un-capitalizing some section headers of 358/2 Days's Mission articles, I noticed that there is a lot of inconsistency.

Most articles use "Mission goal" as the first header, but some, such as this use "Mission objective". Another inconsistent header is the last one of the article, "Video walkthrough". Most of the Mission articles use this header, but some use only "Video". I didn't want to change anything until we had consensus, so what does everyone think?

Another question I'd like to ask concerns the capitalization of the word "Mission". Based on this template, I left the word "Mission" capitalized, but again I'm seeing some inconsistency in the headers and sub-headers.

So, we need to decide on what headers to use.

  • For the first header, the choices would be "Mission goal" (currently, the most common), "Mission goals", "Mission objective", and "Mission objectives".
  • For the last header, the choices would be "Video walkthrough" (currently, the most common), and "Video(s)"
  • Lastly, we need to decide whether the word "Mission" should always be capitalized (like the word "Keyblade", for example).

Once we reach a decision, I suggest that a new section should be added to the Manual of Style concerning these Mission articles; there are almost a hundred of them, after all.

I'll tell you what I think:
  • After checking the game, I found out that the game says Mission objectives, so I think we should use that when there is more than one objective. When there is only one objective, we should use Mission objective.
  • I think we should call the section with videos Video walkthrough. After all, it is a walkthrough, not just a video.
  • I think we should capitalise the word mission only when refering to a certain mission. When the word mission doesn't refer to a specific mission, we should just use mission without a capital M. So it should be During Mission 68, but not During this Mission (that should be During this mission).

Actually, some time ago, I started going through each of the missions, adding these sections. I've been since distracted. Please follow the format for the missions up to, I guess it was around 30, but go ahead with making "objectives" singular when appropriate.

Part of that was probably my fault. I'm sure I subconsciously capitalized things that I shouldn't have when I created the articles I worked on because of the whole "IT'S A TITLE!" thing we've all had drilled into us from early on.

If you guys can fix us to a more consistent form that would be lovely. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
