8bit BlackMage - Beyond the Sky TALK - Why do chemists call helium, curium, and barium 'the medical elements'? Because, if you can't 'helium' or 'curium', you... um... ._.; - 05:53, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Comrade Faethin and I have noticed the debate over using certain epithets to name characters on our pages, such as the now de re-titled Marcel Funebris. Thanks to users for pointing out the discrepancies and kind of providing a catalyst for this proposal, by raising issues on the Confessor's, Fiona's, and other character's talk pages. (ILHI is proud now XD)
I have a few suggestions as to how we may sort this out, revolving around sorting names by types of titles.
Final Fantasy Tactics characters keep their formal titles. There is a log in the game that clearly defines each character and lists them with their full name and title.
Judges keep their title. We are not naming Judge Gabranth <SPOILERZ!!!> "Noah fon Ronsenburg", nor the crazy dual-sword guy simply "Bergan", nor Judgemaster Cid simply "Cid". These two rules (and perhaps more that can be thought of later) take precedence over the next and rather large mandate:
Miscellaneous titles, particularly those that are derived from royalty that change titles over the course of the game, are removed. This means no Princess in Princess Sara, no Queen in Queen Brahne Alexandros. As an example, the latter would be moved to "Brahne Raza Alexandros XVI". General Beatrix is kind of difficult to determine, not sure on that.
If we do use a title that falls outside these boundaries, we need to make sure it is used more often than not when referring to characters. Again, Beatrix somewhat makes this rule murky.
Please add any comments or possible additions to this proposal.
