Please add any switch cases omitted, or if unsure about how to do it, leave a message on the talk page.


Takes two parameters
The first parameter is the input string to be verified or corrected.
The second (optional) parameter is the format request.
Either "img" or "image", "short" or "long". The long name is returned by default if this parameter is omitted.

Will return the input string linked to Naming Conventions if no matches are found.

e.g. {{Name|wjhbvkwfk}} produces "wjhbvkwfk".


  • {{Name|ArmA 2|img}} produces "arma2"
  • {{Name|arma:arc|short}} produces "Arma 2:ACR" and correctly interprets a possible typo.
  • {{Name|ArmA 2: OFP: E}} produces "Operation Flashpoint: Elite"
  • {{Name|A1 Zues}} produces "Arma 3: Zeus" even though both "Zeus" is spelled incorrectly and is an Arma 3 DLC!
etc. - You get the idea :-)

In other words, it takes a multitude of possible (slightly and wildly incorrect) interpretations (including several possible typos) of how BI games should be named, and returns the conventionally correct version required, depending on circumstance.


The following naming conventions are handled (so far)
