Titles of fish, bug and benthic creature pages

I'm of the opinion that they should be in lowercase, other than the first letter, because that's how the game treats them, for instance:

"I caught a petaltail dragonfly! He may be big, but I'm bigger!" —Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Furthermore I think we should also rename all pages to their name in the most recent game which the subject of the article appears in.

And finally, all of the internal heading titles should be in lower-case as well, i.e. 'Encyclopedia information' as opposed to 'Encyclopedia Information'.

Any thoughts?

I think having it all capitalized looks better and more professional, but I'm not very picky. Either works.

IMO, the Catch Quote is not a quote if you start changing it. So keep it lowercase. coughseewhatididtherecough

No real reason to have a noun capitalized anyway in that sense.

The catch quotes are already lowercase, you can play the game and see for yourself! I'm using them to suggest we should rename the pages to reflect the capitalization that the game uses.

Furthermore we need to decide what to do with the following pages because they're rather messy:

Since the pre-WW ladybug is sufficiently different from the ladybug in later games, I think it's a better solution to have four pages in this situation, namely:

Ladybug (GCN) would probably be better than (old).

Spotted ladybug and the "new" ladybug in WW onwards are the same bug so I don't know why we need to split those two. 

I would personally go for:

Ladybug (GCN) for old black one

Ladybug disambig

Spotted Ladybug for the red one in AF AF+ AC AFe+ and the new games, with mention that spotted is not applied to it in future games.

I'm thinking we call the new ladybug just 'Ladybug' with no 'spotted' involved

The options are:

Ladybug (GCN) and Ladybug (New)

Ladybug (GCN) and Spotted Ladybug


But I don't think it makes sense to call the spotted one "new" when it was in the old games too, but again I don't think it is worth splitting the spotted from the "new" spotted that isn't called spotted.

I don't think it makes sense to call the Spotted ladybug that because it hasn't been called that since like AFe+... which is why i suggested having two pages titled 'Ladybug' so we can leave the Spotted ladybug as it is

I won't argue with whatever you do because it really doesn't matter in the end.


I'm just going off what I've seen on other wikis and such.
