Just a question on abbreviations in the title: Should we have abbreviations such as "St." for "Saint" in the tile of a page? I've noticed a bunch of Ilmaterian saints with pages using the abbreviation. I guess that's ok but not everyone knows what "St." means. I changed one title to "Saint" but decided not to edit any of the others until I got a second opinion.

When I made St. Dionysius, I followed the existing format used by the other saints pages — they were all called "St. Something", so I used that too. Also, all mentions of the Ilmatari saints in the sourcebooks use "St." rather than "Saint", so it's certainly a standard.
Personally, I'd rather not have titles in page-names, but saints seem to be special in this regard. We're unlikely to hear of saints without "saint" prefixing their name. Even Wikipedia uses "Saint" in the page-name for some saints. I'm on the fence with this. — BadCatMan (talk) 12:55, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
