Help:Naming an article
From Oracle FAQ
Before creating a new article, please consider the following rules for naming articles:
 Things to consider when naming articles
- Use simple nouns, names, or phrases that would work well in a sentence.
- Use singular, not plural, if at all possible. (This wiki's linking can add plurals easily in most cases but not subtract them.)
- Use words in the titles that people are likely to search for and that you can use easily in sentences within other articles.
- Be specific, the title should describe what's in the article.
- Avoid gratuitious punctuation and special characters, but use when needed.
 Examples of good article titles
- SQL*Plus: This article describes SQL*Plus and you can also just link to it in any sentence about SQL*Plus. For example:
- "Execute the following command from SQL*Plus ...".
- naming wiki articles: states clearly what it's about and is spelled & phrased so that it can be used in a sentence:
- "Before creating articles here, read more about naming wiki articles."
 Examples of bad article titles
- Issues: Not specific. Whose issues? About what?
- SQL*Plus Features: It's all capitalized, so it doesn't fit into a sentence nicely and no one's likely to ever type it that way. Better for this wiki site might be: SQL*Plus features.
- InfoAboutThisWiki: Use spaces. Don't capitalize.
