Proposal for singular page titles

Page titles should be in singular. This is consistent with Wikipedia's style, which most users would be more familiar with, and it would be more convenient in pretty much every way. --N1KF (talk) 17:09, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

elaborate? --Jet (talk) 17:56, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Have pages like Blocks be named Block, and Smileys as Smiley. --N1KF (talk) 23:25, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

I'll look into it, but usually people refer to those as plural --Jet (talk) 11:49, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Have you decided yet? I don't want to make lots of arbitrary links to pages that will just be redirects. I would feel a lot more comfortable adding content to the wiki if we had a standard. That said, I think we should really go with the singular standard. Singular titles can easily be linked to as plural without using a redirect (like this: coins), but the reverse isn't true for plural titles (so coin is inconvenient to write). Plural article titles simply can't be applied to some things (like users, contests and individual worlds), so having everything be singular would be a lot more consistent. I've never seen action tiles be called "actions", yet that's what the page for it is named. It will also bring some debate on whether or not certain pages should be singular or plural. For example, should the page for Code be renamed Codes? So, please, any mod who is reading this, consider going with the option that'll help the wiki in nearly every way. --N1KF (talk) 00:38, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

go for it --Jet (talk) 14:16, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, I'll do it. --N1KF (talk) 23:17, 27 June 2018 (EDT)

Chris, or Benjaminsen?

When referring to Chris Benjaminsen, is it okay to refer to him as Chris? In official contexts, it seems he's usually called Benjaminsen but Chris also seems popular for some reason. The Beta article actually has a section that uses both. --N1KF (talk) 00:21, 16 June 2018 (EDT)
