On Wikipedia it was decided to not capitalize "narrow sea" because it was not capitalized in the books. I don't even know if that's true, but that's what was asserted. Whichever way we go, we should decide and stick to it. -[[User:Oorag|Oorag]] 23:29, 1 May 2007 (CDT)

:Yes, in the books ''narrow sea'' is not capitalized (while ''Summer Sea'' is. No idea why). Perhaps we should stick to the book... Fortunately, George has promised us a name for the eastern continent soon enough, so we only have to wait to change the name of the article to the proper name when we get it. Or perhaps [[User:Ran|Ran]] would be so kind as to advance it to us considering it as a cultural contribution to the encyclopedic effort.  ;P.  --[[User:The_hairy_bear|The hairy bear]] ([[User talk:The hairy bear|Send me a raven]]) 02:51, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

:I've gone and edited most instances of 'Narrow Sea' to 'narrow sea'. I think 'Across the Narrow Sea' has a sort of title sort of sound to it, so I think it's okay to leave that one capitalized; see Davos's title, which is rendered as Admiral of the Narrow Sea. --[[User:Ran|Ran]] 08:56, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

Capitalization

On Wikipedia it was decided to not capitalize "narrow sea" because it was not capitalized in the books. I don't even know if that's true, but that's what was asserted. Whichever way we go, we should decide and stick to it. -Oorag 23:29, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
