PW:Manual Of Style

From PHIGHTING! Wiki

The Manual of Style describes how articles on the PHIGHTING! Wiki should be formatted, as well as answer common questions regarding in-universe syntax, capitalisation, and how to describe specific occurrences within PHIGHTING!

This page is a massive work-in-progress!

Phighters and NPCs

Phighter and NPC names should always be capitalised, and should be formatted and spelled as they are seen in-game. I.e.

  • Ban Hammer, not Banhammer, BanHammer or Ban hammer.
  • Vine Staff, not Vinestaff, VineStaff or Vine staff.
  • The Broker, not Broker or the Broker.
  • Skateboard, Biograft, Slingshot, Hyperlaser, Medkit, Boombox and Subspace should all be written as one word and capitalised as shown.
  • Zuka, not B. Zuka, except where used in the original text.
  • Darkheart, Firebrand, Ghostwalker, Icedagger, Venomshank and Windforce should all be written as one word and capitalised as shown.

Locations and Maps

Similarly to Phighters and NPCs, locations and maps should be capitalised and formatted and spelled as they are seen in-game. I.e.

  • Crossroads, not The Crossroads or the Crossroads.
  • Thieves' Den, not Thieve's Den or Thief's Den.
  • Banland, not the Banland, The Banland, the Banlands or The Banlands.
  • DODGEBALL!, not Dodgeball! or Dodgeball.
  • Rob the ROBLOX Bank, not The Bank, the Bank or Bank.
  • BOGIO Skatepark, ROBLOX HQ, ROBLOX Laundromat, ROBLOX Mall and ROBLOX Museum should all be capitalised and written as shown.

One exception to this rule is Sword Fight On The Heights, which is displayed as SFOTH in-game, but is a shortened form of the map's full name. Use your judgement where appropriate.
