Capitalization of alliance names / Grammar Edit

When mentioned in the middle of a sentence, "The Democratic Order" should not be capitalized because 'the' is an article. Azu-nyan fixed your edit.

Also, "it's" does not mean "its." It's is a contraction for it is, while 'its' is the possessive form of 'it.'

Sorry I'm leaving you a message here, I'm in class and I'm on here only so this is more convenient. And you should register an account :P

All titles are capitalized. Like the word "Mr." or "Dr." as examples. TDO does not refer to themselves as "the Democratic Order" but instead as "The Democratic Order". I stand by my original capitalization. Preceding unsigned comment added by John Warbuck (talk • contribs)
Warbuck, not in the middle of a sentence it isn't. Bogogoobo is correct, you always decap "the" in the middle of sentence, and the same goes for titles. "The" only gets capitalized at the beginning of a sentence.  Locke   Talk • Alestor    19:08, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Locke is correct. 'The' is simply an article, after all. The only reason it is capitalized in 'The Democratic Order' is because it is the first word. Compare The International or The German Empire. Both of these articles have the 'The' capitalized, however, when one is mentioning them or even linking to them in a sentence, it is not:

...is a protectorate between the International and the...
...is the supreme head and monarch of the German Empire and all power...

Similarly, article titles regarding them, and thus TDO and any other alliance using 'The' as its first word, follow suit: Constitution of the International, History of the International, Constitution of the German Empire, and, now that I've noticed and moved it, History of the Democratic Order.
