From the source, and I quote, "Skeletal Warrior (Independent Undead)". Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 10:44, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Your is the point of your post? Are you wanting an independent undead category? or are you asking for the page to be moved to uppercase?Baggins (talk) 10:47, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

No I meant for the category to be put back. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 10:51, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
It's confusing really that while the part of Manual of Monsters is indeed called "Skeletal Warrior (Independent Undead)" and that it describes the independent undead skeletal warrior, it's under the chapter "The Undead Scourge", and as we all know the undead under the Scourge aren't independent. Seems like the author(s) missed a & in the chapter name, heh ("The Undead & Scourge"). It's nobody's fault here really, except the authors'. --User:Gourra/Sig2 11:16, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
On a side note. Has it been decided that everything has to be upper case now? I thought it was still being decided or something last I heard at User:Rolandius/Mentor#Warcraft_III_units. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 11:09, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Units in Warcraft III that doesn't appear in any other source should be upper case (Blood Elf Soldier), just like NPCs and mobs in WoW, but if it appears in any other source, for example the RPG, it should be in lower case. Alternatively the Warcraft III unit stays in upper case while lore about the general unit/class/race is in lower case, just like how NPC and mobs are treated in WoW. --User:Gourra/Sig2 11:17, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I didn't know this was decided and a majority of them are already spelled using the other method. Does this apply to everything in Warcraft III like Warcraft III buildings or just Warcraft III units? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 11:20, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Just because there's a majority of them spelled in a different way doesn't mean that they can't be changed back. Warcraft III buildings should probably follow this pattern too, unless they, again, appears in any other source, for example the RPG, where it could be in lower case. Alternatively the Warcraft III building stays in upper case while an article with lore about it is in lower case. --User:Gourra/Sig2 11:28, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Well I asked on my Mentor page about this before we started talking on this talk page. I just want to hear if this is a new change in policy or what since I was told the policy on RTS spelling was missing or grandfathered. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 11:33, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I think the upper case first letter and the rest lower case should be picked. Warcraft III is pretty much lore, while World of Warcraft is ongoing. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 11:46, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
There are also mobs and NPCs in Warcraft III that works in the same way as mobs and NPCs in WoW. That should make it pretty clear that every word (except "of" etc) should have their first letter upper case. --User:Gourra/Sig2 11:57, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I am not sure if you are aware, but in the actual game of Warcraft III they spell things lower case. At least so far that I have seen in the first few levels. Also, the manual has things spelled lower case many times. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 12:06, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I am not sure if you are aware, but in the actual game of World of Warcraft they sometime spell mobs in lower case in quest texts. Are you saying that they too should be in lower case? No, they shouldn't, and neither should the Warcraft III units be. --User:Gourra/Sig2 12:12, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Okay, so you are saying that all NPCs/Mobs/units from the RTS games should be spelled in upper case like the World of Warcraft NPCs/Mobs/units are? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 12:29, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Basically, yes. The same procedure could be used for the other Warcraft RTS games other than Warcraft III, but that will be put on hold for now. And please, don't take this as it's okay for you to move articles around. --User:Gourra/Sig2 12:33, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, Warcraft III is an RTS just like the other two so I am not sure why it has been put on hold. I won't move the articles because the spelling method might get changed again. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 12:40, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Can this be talked about in a more noticeable place? The lower case thing has been around a while, is it really worth it to change?--SWM2448 20:27, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree with SWM. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 02:10, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Warcraft IIIEdit

Point of note. The unit in Warcraft III is called "Skeleton Warrior" within the game. It also is a bit different from "Skeletal Warriors" in WoW in that the former do not have helmets and lack much armor. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 11:29, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
