How married are we to writing out every game title in full every time it pops up in an article? It's painfully annoying and looks rather silly. It should be alright to use, say "Birth by Sleep" in an article body if the full title has just been used.

These should be considered fully legitimate abbreviations, especially the following, which appear in the Chronicle in KH3D.

  • Chain of Memories
  • 358/2 Days
  • Birth by Sleep
  • coded

I completely agree.

I'm bumping this topic. I would very much like to make this a real policy change for us.

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png IF and only IF the full title has just been used. Saying "Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep" 10 hundred times is sheer redundancy. Can't believe this is even an issue!

EDIT: (02:00, 22 June 2012 (UTC) - I would also like to ask that if we're going to be abbreviating titles, we only use what the games use, the kind of thing Neumannz listed (358/2 Days, Birth by Sleep, etc.). We should NEVER use "KH3D", "BBS", or even something like "Days" in an article!

You do know KHBBS and KH3D are official terms used in Ultimanias, right?

Eternal Nothingness XIII - This heart belongs again to darkness. All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it—it grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came.

No Name Keychain KHBBS.png You do know it's unprofessional to use acronyms like that in the articles save for those tag thingines we use in the galleries, right?

Like I said from the beginning--or rather, in the name of this thread--this is not about acronyms. We will not be using acronyms in the body of an article. So don't worry about those. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 02:38, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
