Less than Hero

The "Less than Hero" article has been labelled the following levels:

This article is thoroughly developed.
No focus level has been assigned.

Should this page be titled Less than Hero, as it is now, or Less Than Hero (note the capital T in Than)? The only reason it is an issue is that some pages link to one and some to the other (than vs. Than). The lower case t one seems to be the most used, but which one is correct? - ClonedWizard 01:28, 17 July 2006 (PDT)

User:Gopher/sig Nice catch. than is a preposition, which are often not capitalized, but I'm not certain. I'll check the DVD cases later if nobody beats me to it.
One problem with that Gopher, the DVD boxes spell the whole thing in capitals. But I'd say lowercase. - Quolnok 07:41, 17 July 2006 (PDT)
User:Gopher/sig :blinks: and so they are! Ah well, we need a grammar nazi then. Gopher 08:11, 17 July 2006 (PDT) says that "than" is either a conjunction or a preposition. I searched Google for "capitalizing titles" and found this which references The Chicago Manual of Style. Apparently, if "than" is a subordinate conjuction, it should be capitalized. However, if it is a coordinate conjunction, it should be lowercased. Since did not specify what type of conjunction "than" was, I did some more searching. Here "than" is listed as a a subordinating conjunction (further up on the page there is a more indepth coverage of "than"). So, if my sources are credible, we need to decide whether (in this instance) "than" is a subordinating conjunction or a preposition to decide whether it should be capitalized or not. That's where I get confused. I'm not sure how "than" is being used in this case. - ClonedWizard 15:54, 17 July 2006 (PDT)

OK, I fixed all the remaining links so they point to "Less than Hero" instead of "Less Than Hero". I guess we can live with this even if it turns out to be wrong, presumably no one will want to see our heads on spikes over the gate because of one letter that is debatable.

Earthican vs. Swedish

I chose Earthican because it'd be more well-known throughout the galaxy. I think. It's the difference between saying American company or Nebraskan company in our current world. Many would understand "Nebraskan" but many more would understand "American" -- Just thought I'd let you know why I used Earthican instead of Swedish. :D --Buddy 15:26, 29 April 2007 (PDT)

The chance of non-humans reading this Wiki is close to 0. Which is why I chose it. --SvipTalk 01:32, 30 April 2007 (PDT)
