Request to move

This article title and its associated categories should match the case used consistently in tier 1 Adventurer's Guide p. 126-135, where all Mammoth Lords followings do not uppercase "Following" in their names. -Oznogon (talk) 08:29, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

The original references, ISWG (also Tier 1 but older) and People of the North, capitalise the followings when referring to a specific one and not when generally talking about them, for instance in "Mammoth Lord followings". This seems standard practice to capitalise names of organisations as our PathfinderWiki:Manual of style also hints, but not explicitly. As this is similar to the change to Aldori swordlords that no longer capitalises the full organisation's name, clearly the style manual at Paizo has changed recently. The question is what do we do? We clearly need both forms, but which one redirects to the other? 'Following' is a particularly bad example, as I can misread sentences when 'following' is in lower case and my personal preference, then, is for capitalisation. Following (!) Paizo's example might be the easiest way forward though and aligns to the canon policy. It would be genuinely interesting to know Paizo's rationale - Yoda?
No one else has chimed in for a month, Oznogon, so I'll make this move now, update the page, but leave a redirect. --Fleanetha (talk) 21:29, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
"Following" should be treated the same way we would "tribe" or "family", so lower-case.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 21:41, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
