Cleanup[edit source]

The article Omni plant should have it's name changed to Omni Plant. This is due to it being refered to as the Omni Plant everywhere in the article, but the title is Omni plant. This should be changed for simplicity & consistency's sake.

Is it spelled with a capital "P" in-game? That's often a debate-closer. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 00:46, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
FYI, almost everything in the game is spelled in capital in the first letters, so using the game strings as a reference might not be the best idea, because so far we've been avoiding it. To enforce consistency, we need to have a naming convention. What titles / items need to have their names capitalized?
We used to capitalize everything that was capitalized in the game, such as Ghost, Memory, Aspiration, Spring, City Hall, and so on. We've dropped this practice and now we're consistent about using lowercase for generic terms. Some words are still capitalized (for no real reason...?), like skill names, traits, careers & career titles, moodlets, lifetime rewards, and so on. Some others remain consistent throughout the wiki, like the word "Sim", "WooHoo", game titles, Sim's names, lot names, object names, and so on.
Now, there are just some fictional / specific things that only exist in The Sims, but I'm never sure which way we should take. Take this omni plant for example. Should it be called just "omni plant" or "Omni Plant"? How about the vampire fruit? Forbidden fruit? The weather stone? The cowplant? There are some things that I can't think of right now, but do we have a naming convention for these? Nikel Talk Vote! 03:16, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
