Article Name: Not For Kids Only or Not for Kids Only?[edit]

I think that there should be some discussion as to the name of the article. I realize that there are guidelines that say words such as "for" should not be in caps. However, there should be cases that this guidline is not followed. This, in my humble opinion, is one of those cases. I state this for two reasons: 1- How the title appears on the album and 2- Wikipedia is an ever changing, ever evolving project which should be flexible enough to allow for exceptions. Any one else have an opinion? I will humbly differ to the masses. Moorematthews 19:06, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree that the article naming guidelines should not be followed slavishly, and that exceptions should be made when appropriate. Also, I can see why someone might reasonably want to capitalize "For" in this case, for emphasis. But, I personally feel the guidelines should be overridden only when it's pretty clear cut or obvious. So, I find "Not for Kids Only" somewhat preferable to "Not For Kids Only".

The relevant policies and guidelines are perfectly clear about this. See WP:CAPS, WP:NC#Album titles and band names, WP:MUSTARD#Capitalization and WP:ALBUMS#Capitalization. There is no reason to make an exception in this case. Also, note that both reviews listed in the infobox follow the same convention. Jogers (talk) 08:38, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
