The acryonym project is an effort to restructure article URLs for all topics with acronyms.


All acroynm-based articles that are not following the standard (ACRONYM without periods), are to be moved to a compliant primary URL. All other forms will redirect toward the compliant URL. This project has gained community approval by way of forum accessible here.


Once moved, acronym-based topics will be more accessible to our viewers and a simple and easy-to-enter link will be accessible to editors who are interested in removing redirects.

Roadmap information

  1. Move the main article to the acronym in full uppercase, as seen in-game, without intermittent period punctuation.
  2. If intermittent periods are used in-game, use the {{DISPLAYTITLE:}} function to display the article title with the intermittent period punctuation.
  3. If applicable, the infobox will also use the intermittent periods, achieved by using the |name= parameter.
  4. URLs consisting of the same acronym with the period punctuation (if used in-game), as well as the extended form, will be redirect articles.
  5. Phase out redirect usage at your leisure.


  • We want [[VATS]] as the primary article URL
  • We want [[V.A.T.S.]] and [[Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System]] to redirect to the primary article.


To participate, add your user name below using [[User:Your user name|Your user name]].
