From Heroes 3 wiki

I'd like to start following the wikipedia capitalization conventions. I used the creature bank articles as examples. What do you guys think?

I guess it's a matter of whether you think creature names, etc, count as "proper names". So far, I believe the convention on this wiki has been to follow the manual. Although, looking at the manual more closely, I can't seem to work out the rule the manual uses. For example, "A hero with Pikemen (Extra Slow) would have a starting movement allowance of 15 tiles." "Pikemen" and "Extra Slow" are capitalised, but other terms which have specific meanings in the game aren't, like "hero" and "tiles". Ibraesil (talk) 02:49, 24 December 2016 (CET)
Yeah the manual's a little inconsistent. I'd rather just go with the real English rules. You wouldn't capitalize "archer", even he was a "royal archer".

It looks like Kapteeni wants us to follow the manual. If that's what you guys really want, I won't argue the point anymore. I think maybe I'll make a capitalization reference based on the manual and put in the contributor resources.

Uh, sorry. I did not realise that there was an ongoing conversation about the matter. I have too been inconsistent with the capitalization, and as I remember we have already discussed about it in here. I have tried to follow the manual on this matter. –Kapteeni Ruoska (talk) 10:16, 27 December 2016 (CET)
Continuing original capitalization discussion on Ibraesil's talk page.
