AoCWiki:File Name Policy

Jump to: navigation, search

AOC Wiki file names should be clear and descriptive, without being excessively long. It is helpful to other contributors and for maintenance if all files were named with a consistent naming convention that both identifies the subject, but also the type and possibly the origination date, which is more vital for files before the game launches.

Case

Although not required, it is recommended to use word capitalization in file names since they're sometimes used as file titles as well.

Syntax

<subject> <type> <date>.png

subject Specific name of the file's primary subject. If the subject name can be broken down into a primary and secondary name, put the more specific first (e.g. Accessory Skin).
type The type is more relative to images, which most may be one of the following:
  • icon (only for icons used within the wiki)
  • Concept (for concept art drawings)
  • Render (for 3D renderings for use in-game)
  • Screenshot (for in-game screenshots)
date A specific date that the file was released by the developers. For example:
  • PAX West 2018
  • September 2018
  • September 4 2018
