Seattle Weekly. If the folk who live in Milngavie where told that they are stupid for not spelling their town "Mulguy", they'd probably respond with hostility, commit a few logical fallacies and if pushed hard enough, start breaking some WP guidelines. The same goes for our precious specialist writers.
We need to keep them, not point them at essays that seem to be written to make them feel inadequate and unwelcome. This isn't maths. Editors will vary as to how much weight they give to sources. Specialists will tend to give more weight to specialist sources and generalists to generalist sources. Extremist in one camp view the extremists in the other camp as fundamentally wrong, rather than respecting their opinions. That in itself is a fallacy. You say "The most reliable sources on Specialist works are notoriously unreliable for this purpose The balance between general sources and specialist sources has to be found and does it really matter if you come at it from one direction or the other?
You will always find some cases where the other side has a better argument. For example, our article naming policy gives Heroin as an example of a common name choice over the INN name. It is a good choice but not because we should use everyday brand names rather than INN names.
In fact Wikipedia always uses the INN names for medical drug articles. There are only two drug articles I can think of on Wikipedia where the brand name is used. Heroin and Aspirin. Both are ex Bayer trademarks and aspirin is actually the INN. Folk read the heroin article because it is an illegal drug and not because it is a painkiller medicine it is only used as such rarely and in a few countries. The caffeine example in that policy page is similarly flawed — people read about the drug in their coffee, not about some chemical compound.
The name is chosen here because it suits the audience for the article, and their expectations, not because it is more commonly used. So for medical drugs, it is actually better to default to the INN name, because brand names would give us no end of problems, and to accept the very few exceptions to the rule where the everyday name is better. I think the essay needs to drop the issue of naming. It is covered by our policy.
And the horse-measurement issue noted above is covered by our guideline on jargon — you need to explain technical terms to an unfamiliar audience.
I made some copy edits in the lead to seek a more neutral tone and, according to my personal style, near- Joe Friday brevity. If you find that these contributions are helpful I will make time to work on the rest.
Joja lozzo , 15 February UTC. The talk page at Help talk:Citation style 1 is where the discussion about most of our citation templates is centralized. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ships Hyphens. Fortunately this is snowballing against the ungrammatical specialist usage. At Talk:Cultivar Following MOS and the thread immediately above it there's been some not entirely collegial discussion of use or misuse of capitalization of the term "group" in botany, what is called the " cultivar group " in long form.
The actual official ICNCP standard in botanical literature is to capitalize the word as "Group" when it appears in a name just like Genus is capitalized and italicized, species is italicized but not capitalized, etc.
The issue: At least one editor has insisted on always capitalizing this word, everywhere, if it refers to cultivar group, e.
