Re: Capitalization of race names.

Canon does it, the fic does it, language rules regarding nationalities do it. Why decapitalize the races?

EDIT: Compelling argument.

You did read the link I provided, I hope? Well, like your link there says, it's a thing that refuses to die, a mistake that keeps getting perpetuated by people who should know better about how species are supposed to be not capitalised.

That named after the planet thing specifically shouldn't apply to ME because ME races don't follow the species name = planet name thing so many other works are guilty of.

Nationalities... turians are the species. The Turian Hierarchy is the nation. See the difference?

In all bluntness, though, I don't have any skin in the game regarding this, so if you want to go recapitalise them, I won't touch those.

As per Handling Spoilers, I'm starting to take out spoiler markers over trope names. If anyone has suggestions on how we deal with the really big ones, please do tell.
