Article Name

Is Codex: Chaos Space Marines (4th Edition) the best title for this publication? I thought that the edition in the parenthesis indicated the rules version it was released under. This title seems to violate the naming standard. I understand that there were 2 "Codex: Chaos Space Marines" released under 3rd edition of the rules. However, if GW releases another "Codex: Chaos Space Marines" (or even "Codex: Chaos") under 4th edition it will create even greater confusion. If the naming standard is to list the publication edition, then this should be "Codex: Chaos Space Marines (2nd Edition)", as it is only the 2nd publication with the title "Codex: Chaos Space Marines". Did I misunderstand the naming policy? If, so what is the naming policy? If not, then doesn't this article title violate the naming policy? Codex: Imperial Guard (4th Edition) has the same problem. --Rlyehable 03:20, 14 February 2007 (CET)

Yeeeees, I believe our codex policy to be slightly screwed up, which would probably be my fault as I didn't think it through when they were mostly created. On the German side there are a number of codexes classed as rewrites, so I might have to do some serious redesigning, which could be a pain in the butt. It's meant to go by which edition of warhammer it was created for, but as you say there were two for 3rd edition and now one for forth, so our current design is insufficient. Unfortunately I have to go to work now lol but i'll look at it when i get a spare second to myself. Cheers --Jonru 09:52, 7 August 2007 (CEST)
Actually would it be easier if we transformed the articles into something like Codex: Imperial Guard 3.2, for the current version and did away with the long winded version we currently use?--Jonru 09:54, 7 August 2007 (CEST)
I think the way we do it in the German Lex (with editions) is suitable. If there's more than one 'dex with the same name in the same edition, well, we simply stick into the existing article :) --Inquisitor S. 23:22, 9 August 2007 (CEST)
