  • Wikipedia:Article titles
    • In WP:TITLE#Common names, added: "See: http://books.google.com/ngrams/"
    • In WP:TITLE#Article title format, changed: "Avoid abbreviations: Abbreviations and acronyms are generally avoided unless the subject is almost exclusively known by its abbreviation" to: "Avoid ambiguous abbreviations: Abbreviations and acronyms are often ambiguous and thus should be avoided unless the subject is known primarily by its abbreviation and that abbreviation is primarily associated with the subject"
    • In WP:TITLE# Special characters, added: "(Similarly, in cases where it is determined that the most appropriate title is one that omits diacritics, dashes and other letters not found on most English-language keyboards, provide redirects from versions of the title that contain them.)"
