Page names in Appropedia should:
- Tell uninformed readers at a glance what the page is about (e.g. Deidre's vertical vegetable garden instead of "Daidre's project")
- Have only the first letter of the first word capitalized (e.g. Appropriate technology) except for:
- Be a complete name rather than an acronym (note that redirects can be created from the acronym) except where:
Note that in Appropedia, slashes / create subpages, so if you want a slash in the page title but not a subpage, use a backslash \ instead.
Specific guidelines[edit | edit source]
Following are hints on naming different types of pages.
The name of the page should describe the specific subject area. The title should be, as far as possible:
- Easy to understand
- Consistent with common usage
- Organization name + Project type - e.g. AEF Greywater
- Project location + Project type - e.g. Occidental Greywater
- Your name + Project type - e.g. Aleiha's parabolic solar cooker
- Full name of program - e.g. Parras summer program
- Your area name + supplies - e.g. Humboldt California supplies
- Name of organization, program, project or location where coordination is taking place - hoped for final product name.
- For global coordinations, just use the hoped for final product name - e.g. Low cost computer guide
This is for resources that would be placed under a topic. These pages are almost always under another category as well. Please peruse the other categories, to see if there is one that can direct your naming better.
- Name of your thesis - e.g. Water management and culture in Indonesian cities
