So in my staggered attempt to swap the Non Canon Sections for Sub Series sections, I've noticed that we're very inconsistent with how section titles are capitalised. That is to say there's no consistency between Non-canon Appearances and Non-canon appearances. Not a massive issue really but consistency is a rule to live by on wikis so I just thought it should be definitively stated somewhere. Personally given how they're section titles I'd be in favour of capitalising everything except prepositions (so Other it would be Appearances). Thoughts, opinions?

I was always under the impression that it was "Non-canonical appearances" and "Other appearances". I believe that for the most part, everything was standardized that way, until we had an enormous influx of Hyrule Warriors pages, and various items/characters/enemies/locations needed the section added. So now there's a bunch of "Non-Canon Appearances", which I change as I see them, but it'll take a long time to check every page that's been recently edited like that.

So basically, I think the "A" should be lowercase.

Oni Dark Link – "Too bad. If that's too freaky for you, then I know you'll never want to join my cult. Don't tell anyone but on the pagan day of the sun god Ra, I kneel at the foot of an ancient instrument of torture and consume ritualistic symbols of blood and flesh. And if any of you care to join me, come to the Harvard chapel on Sunday, kneel beneath the crucifix, and take Holy Communion. Open your minds, my friends. We all fear what we do not understand - Robert Langdon"

Nevertheless the end result is that we now have a lot of pages using lower case. And in search of some more examples I've went through several random pages and came up with the following examples where section headers are capitalized even though they shouldn't be (unrelated to Hyrule Warriors). [1] [2] [3] [4]. Ultimately even if it was the standard before I see absolutely no reason why headers shouldn't be capitalized given what they are. Especially as there's now so many cases where they already are.

I think that the lowercase is better. If you need the help of a bot, do not hesitate to ring at my door.

In general anything that isn't the first word or a proper noun shouldn't be capitalized in headers.

Well seems I'm outvoted. I'll change any articles I encounter from now on. Though I would like someone to provide a reason why they prefer lowercase. We'll also have to change the non standard sections in the pages I linked above.

I could have sworn it was in the Manual of Style — it might be in Wikipedia's, and I'm pretty sure it is somewhere. Also, Oni, what's the new standard heading for subseries that we should be changing from "Non-canonical appearances"? Is it "Other appearances" or "Subseries appearances" or something else entirely?

Oni Dark Link – "To my dearest Albert, Happy Birthday. By the time you read this, chances are that I'll no longer be with you. So instead of giving you a present I'd like you to hear me out. Albert this is important. I don't want you to ever hate anyone. Something occurred to me. Feelings of love and feelings of hate both start out as caring about someone. It's sad, but I think that sometimes when those feelings aren't returned, those feelings of love change into hate. If something like that ever happen, I want you to think back to our childhood. Back to a time when we could only love openly and honestly no matter how often we got hurt. I want you to go on living Albert. Love people openly without being scared of getting hurt. I truly was lucky to have known you. - Franz d'Epinay. Forever in your heart."

Other appearances is what I've been going by based on my original outline here. I think it encapsulates what the section is quite accurately.
