When the Japanese official English titles and the usual English titles of the same light novel are different, how should the pages be named?

For modern Japanese names, family names come first or last?

I saw the page Hatsune Miku just now. The other Japanese characters pages are titled with family names coming last, but this page is different. I searched Wikipedia and they seem to use Hatsune Miku, too. I wonder why. I wonder whether the page should be moved to Miku Hatsune. Why isn't there a 条目命名规范 at English Moegirlpedia? — Honoka55(Message me·My contributions) 17:25, 20 July 2017 (CDT)

For moe anthropomorphism, should the letter g in the word girl be capitalized?

There's already UK girl and US girl, and even History girl existing on Moegirlpedia. But I've found that @切尔西 has created Soviet Girl recently. Should the letter g in the word girl be capitalized? There are not rules about this on Moegirlpedia, so let's have a discussion~ I prefer Girl, for they are proper nouns. Maybe some users disagree, but please give your reasons below! — Honoka55(Message me·My contributions) 18:49, 24 July 2017 (CDT)

I think since "xxx Girl" is a title, it should follow Rules for Capitalization in Titles of Articles. (http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/capitalization/rules-for-capitalization-in-titles.html) So I approve Soviet Girl instead of US girl.-xctan at 23:45, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
I agree with you, but we need more users to join the talk. At least we need a patroller or sysop to say OK, and I'll move the pages after that. — Honoka55(Message me·My contributions) 23:55, 24 July 2017 (CDT)
Besides this situation, we have more situations like how to deal a sentence when it's a title, etc. Page Help:Title Naming Standard has created, but before we have discussed or be approved by patrollers or sysops, it should be empty or just add a info box to show it's not approved entirely.

As an English website, of course it doesn't use CST(China Standard Time, or BJT, Bejing Time). — Honoka55(Message me·My contributions) 02:07, 25 July 2017 (CDT)
……I misread it…-xctan at 02:19, 25 July 2017 (CDT)
Proper nouns should have all of its initial letters capitalized. Section from Wikipedia:
Words or phrases derived from proper names are generally capitalized, even when they are not themselves proper names. For example, Londoner is capitalized because it derives from the proper name London, but it is not itself a proper name (it can be limited: the Londoner, some Londoners). Similarly, African, Africanize, and Africanism are not proper names, but are capitalized because Africa is a proper name. 

Here Soviet Girl itself may not be a proper name, but since it was derived from the USSR, which is a proper name, it should be capitalized. Varxo (talk) 04:02, 13 August 2017 (CDT)

Naming

I found some names should be improved. Template:Small GPS Bar should be Small Navigation Bar. GPS is a abbreviation of Global Position System. I think it's not good to use GPS to express a meaning of navigation. And the names of Category:Works by writer,Category:Songs by genre‎ seem invalid. See Help:TNS. --xctan at 02:18, 31 July 2017 (CDT)

That's my mistake. I'm not so good at English, but I still created them as temps. You could help me improve them.-- 20:08, 31 July 2017 (CDT)

Any guideline pages?

Are there any guideline pages for enmgp? I can't find it, namely something like "Help:wiki tutorial"(zh-s:Help:wiki入门) and such. Needed for template construction. Varxo (talk) 01:16, 13 August 2017 (CDT)

So far, no. -Moegirlpedia Girl (talk) 07:37, 13 August 2017 (CDT)
