 I had the same thought about that. Capitalizing every word is typical US-english style. We are trying to not just cater to the US population, remember? I personally think capitalizing every word is ugly. Try capitalizing a whole sentence... it looks awful. \\ Nevertheless,​ from the point of view of "​unified look and feel" I can understand why you would want all headers capitalized. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/09/08 06:59// I had the same thought about that.

- +---- 
- +If capitalization is a US-english style only, it should NOT be used. Its just my opinion, but the wiki is international,​ not US.\\  
 +Concerning this page, I removed the translation notes and linked to the translation guidelines. Also, shouldn'​t we re-order the page ? It's not really consistent like this. For example sections concerning edits (ie. modifications) should be AFTER the general rules (ie. A General Note on Style, ...).\\  
 +I would move sections in this order: 
 +  * 1. A General Note on Style 
 +  * 2. Page Editing Etiquette 
 +  * 3. Editing Policy 
 +  * (everything else being left in the actual order)\\
