standard keyboard characters
This article suggests there may exist any single «standard keyboard characters». This is wrong as keyboard standards may be in number or in characters comparable to the number of nations or the number of languages.
Additionally, you cannot expect from the reader being in one country to know what are the characters available on your specific keyboard and you cannot expect him to imagine what standard keyboard characters can be.
For instance, Many US keyboards sold do not have the extra US-International characters or AltGr engraved on the keys, although € (AltGr+5) always is; nevertheless, the keys work as expected even if not marked. (QWERTY). This means that € is an acceptable character? Correct?
Or also, the United Kingdom and Ireland use a keyboard layout (...) very similar to that of the United States, but (...) includes £ and € signs, that is the currency of United Kingdom and Ireland.
So I suggest to replace standard keyboard characters by English keyboard characters which might be less vague, if we mean English keyboard characters or by any keyboard characters if we mean any keyboard characters.

Comments requested, name of a newspaper's Wikipedia article

Station naming conventions
Are there other conventions besides WP:USSTATION and WP:UKSTATION? What should we do about over-capitalization of "Station" in other systems and countries, for example those listed in List of rail transit stations in the Greater Manila Area? Dicklyon (talk) 19:10, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Follow up, if you care, at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Rapid transit#Station naming conventions. Dicklyon (talk) 20:51, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Or now more specific to the Manila, Philippines, system at Wikipedia talk:Tambayan Philippines#Philippine train station naming and naming of the LRT and MRT systems, where the proposed naming convention is different from both USSTATION and UKSTATION, but is OK I think; may only apply to that system though.

"Crisis" in article names
I started a policy discussion at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (events)#Policy adjustment regarding "crisis" regarding that use of the word "crisis" in article names. I'm posting here as a notice, since that talk page may not be followed by many and feedback from as many editors as possible would be helpful. AHeneen (talk) 00:29, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
Words as words
Most Wikipedia articles are not about specific English words or phrases, but rather about "a person, a people, a concept, a place, an event, a thing etc.", because Wikipedia is not a dictionary. Examples of article titles that do involve "words as words" – and hence italics – include Orange (word), Democrat Party (epithet), and Cellar door. If that's too much "gibberish", then please read up on the use-mention distinction. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 11:59, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Invite to central discussion about China/Taiwan issue
I recently started another(?) central discussion about the China/Taiwan naming dispute. I invite you to comment on the proposed update to the WP:naming conventions (Chinese). --George Ho (talk) 02:22, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
