WikiNames are traditionally written using InterCapping, also known as CamelCase (starting with uppercase letter, and at least another uppercase letter in the wiki link word). This makes the creation of internal hyperlinks really easy.

However, in this [WikiWiki] the links are written using the [[link] notation, as the original InterCapping style of linking is occasionally confusing.  The names still conform to the [WikiWiki] standard, if you look at the URL at the top.

Names are ''crushed'', i.e. [[This is a link] becomes [[ThisIsALink]. However, underscores and dots are retained, so you can have a link like this: [[This_is_a_link], or [[This.Is.A.Link]. All non-alphanumeric characters except for '_' and '.' are removed (that is, all characters that are not letters or numbers), so that [[John's page] becomes [[JohnsPage].  This allows you to type normal sentences which are then turned into links, like when talking about [Wiki etiquette].


Avoid using WikiNames which begin with numbers. The InsertPage plugin does not work with pages with names having numeric prefixes.

A WikiName can not be a number. Numeric names are used for [footnotes|TextFormattingRules].


Is this "no numbered WikiNames" still up to date? 

I tested my personal wiki with Things Like "2006" and "2007" and they are treated as normal WikiPages.

Can someone figure this out?
