Infrastructure proposal.png This article covers an infrastructure proposal.

Infrastructure proposals are suggestions how to improve the project infrastructure; this also includes the code toolchain and tools for code documentation. Infrastructure proposals will be evaluated by the project management department and implemented down the line if they have been agreed upon.

This proposal explores if we should agree upon a standard variant of English for project documentation and the game.

Contents

English speaking community

Both the PARPG community and the PARPG development team speak/type English. To keep things manageable, please only use other languages in private conversations.

American English spelling

We should stick to the American English spelling variant.

  • Because PARPG has three developers form the USA and none from other English speaking countries.
  • Because American English is most commonly used.

Where it matters

It's not important which dialect you use on IRC or on the forums.

Spelling does matter for all written in-game content, the wiki, and the code.

Adapting existing work

Sticking to a standard implies reworking old content. We have to adapt the three resources above.

Taldor is prepared to adapt the existing code where necessary.

PARPG slang

Slang is one of the features that makes a game come alive. For a good example, see PlaneScape: Torment.
