Suggested name clarification

Should this page be called "Help:Style guideline proposal"?

Adding "Style" as a qualifier might help the issue of understanding what the page is all about. I think guideline is too broad to use without qualifying. It might also be useful to add some info about why the page exists and links to other relevant pages in the talk page header.

Just some thoughts.

BTW, I like the new template -- concise, yet very informative.

I had considered that when creating the page. In the end I thought it was possible this boilerplate could eventually be used for guidelines other than style, and so I left the word out for the sake of universality. Do you think there is a part of this boilerplate that is specific to style? I know Style guidelines are our only current working policy for guidelines atm, but I expect that if the policy works well, it could be used in the future for a broader spectrum of guidelines, and thus the boilerplate would be handy elsewhere.

I hadn't thought about this option. You're right, there's nothing specific to style statements in the template. Good idea to leave it general. Thanks for explaining.
