Things to remember

Wikipedia page title conventions require that all proper nouns are capitalized regardless of their placement within a page title, whereas all other words are not capitalized. For example, an article title featuring proper nouns such as "Dave Gahan and Martin Gore" is capitalized regardless of proper noun placement, whereas an article titled "Live backing tapes" would not require the words "backing" or "tapes" be capitalized. Books and the names of journalistic sources are considered proper nouns. Song names are to be written as they appear in their marketing, album names are to be italicized.

For a basic tutorial of how to create content, links, add pictures, and more, please reference the following Wikipedia tutorial.
