Question: Should we publish style guidelines for the site and when not followed make edits or should we let people choose to write in whatever style they prefer including non-standard casing of WordPress, spelling of words like "ppl", "ru", all lowercase, etc?
I don't expect everyone will read and follow the style guidelines (actually I expect most won't) but it's relatively easy to do a quick edit as long as the volume is not overwhelming (and if it is then we can have more volunteer?) And I think it will make the site and much nicer experience for visitors and thus case them to want to use the site even more.
But I made an edit and asked someone to use proper capitalization and he replied that I should not edit his stuff and that he wants to use a casing convention that is contrary to the WordPress trademark.
As a user with high reputation points the system gives me the rights to edit other people's stuff but I don't want to unilaterally decide what the rules are.
What do you think? Should we set and uphold standards for style, casing and quality of writing here or should we just let it be a free-for-all? (yes, there is bias in my question but I'm being explicit about it.)
Thanks in advance,
