Title standards

  1. These words:

A, An, And, As, By, From, For, In, Of, On, Or, The, To

in filenames and NAME tags should be lowercase.

Exception: filename beginning with such a word.

  1. "Don't Worry Be Happy" -> filename: Dont_Worry_Be_Happy.sap

"I'm" => "Im" in filename.

  1. pg: Omit articles where they are the first word of the title. This is actually practised, but not very consistently.
    Example: The_Nutty_Professor.sap > Nutty_Professor.sap

Author standards

  1. pfusik: "Jan & David Spilka" -> "Jan Spilka & David Spilka" ?

Normally AUTHOR is shown to the user without further processing. One exception is Windows Explorer plugins which splits authors on " & ", so it will show two authors: "Jan" and "David Spilka".

  1. pfusik: avoid diminutives? Johnny -> John, Maciek Szczesniak -> Maciej Szcześniak, Slawek Sledz -> Sławomir Śledź ?
  1. pfusik: if real name is unknown, write "<?> (nickname)", e.g. AUTHOR "null1024" -> AUTHOR "<?> (null1024)"

Date standards

  1. pfusik: DD/MM/YYYY (preferred), DD-DD/MM/YYYY, MM/YYYY, MM-MM/YYYY, YYYY, YYYY-YYYY, possible to replace last digits with question marks
