How to italicise

Hey there it's Tigernose. So I'm sure your aware now of the rule to italicize Club Penguin and any other video games when in articles. I've seen a lot of you use it to get your editcounts a high, which I don't mind, but I'm fearing it may be used improperly. This guide will outline when to italicise and when not to.

So I left this message on Hal and LM96's talk pages (because they were aware of this rule and were editing actively):


Hey. I understand your helping the wiki by italicising Club Penguin when needed, however I just wanted to remind you about the line of italicising properly and improperly.

Only italicise Club Penguin and other game names if it's referring to the product. Don't italicise it if it's referring to the island or the team who made the game. Here are some examples:

  • Club Penguin is an online computer game.
  • The world of Club Penguin is very similar to etc.
  • Penguins can waddle around Club Penguin.
  • Club Penguin announced a new relationship with Disney.

I hope this advice helps you, as there is a fine line between helping and not helping a page according to our Manual of Style. Remember to italicise all products like Club Penguin and Club Penguin: Herbert's Revenge, but don't italicise Club Penguin if it's talking about the island.

Also, this edit I made should give you a good example on what to italicise: Click here for the revision


Essentially, that was the guide, and you'll have to follow it. Improper use will lead to a warning. Continuing will lead to a block.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment. Thanks! --Tigernose Tigernose ChatEdits 21:12, April 18, 2010 (UTC)
