  • Up until now, for those articles with only a single appearance or reference we have taken to titling the respective sections in the singular format (i.e. "Appearance" and "Reference") whilst any article with at least two entries is titled in the plural, respectively. Whilst this is, on the face of it, perfectly fine and correct, it does open up a level of inconsistency and additional work when new appearances and references are added to the article.

    I would like to propose a change in practice: To maintain consistency, going forward, we will use the plural format in all instances. (Also, from a technical and grammatical standpoint, a list of appearances/references can contain only a single entry and be correctly titled in the plural.) What are your thoughts?

    • I'm fine with either what we've been doing so far, or with going plural from here on out. As long as there are clear enough 'rules' about it.

    • Alternatively it could be “Appeared/Referenced In:” but I’m with Sade as long as we decide on a rule and stick to it, I’m not too concerned about the actual rule.

    • I don't mind this idea. It should definitely keep the articles consistent going forward.

    • Yeah, either all singular or all plural would be fine, yes.

    • Ah, this has always been my private preference actually, so I do not mind this change at all.

    • Plural as standard, please. (And capitalisation for the 'First appearance' 'Mentioned only' templates, ideally.) I kinda took the lack of pluralisation to be a quirk of so many editors here not having English as a first language.
