Historical version 11 of House Style (view current version)

I don't want to be all dogmatic and stuff, but I think it would help if we all kept to a reasonably common set of naming conventions so that the guide indexes nicely and it's easy for people to find things.

First off, naming pages: "The" should be left off the beginning of names. If you want to link to a place starting with "The", make the link [ [ Whatsit | The Whatsit ] ]. If a thing has multiple branches, the correct format is "Acme (Broad Street)".


  • Category names should be plural; Restaurants, not "Restaurant".
  • Important categories are: Pubs, Restaurants, Colleges, Societies, Off Licences.



  • Oxford is implied, so should be left out.

Phone numbers

  • 01865 is implied, so should be left out.
