    Default Quick MOS Question

    I'm trying to do a few minor edits here and there, so that MD stuff is clearly separated from main series stuff where applicable, but I've come across a question that hopefully an admin can answer:

    As "Generation IV" denotes Diamond, Pearl, Plantium, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, and is easier to type than the latter, is there an analogue Red and Blue Rescue Teams, Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, and Blazing, Stormy, and Light Adventure Squads? Do we use "Mystery Dungeon", "Mystery Dungeon 2", etc., or "Mystery Dungeon Generation III", "Mystery Dungeon Generation IV", "Mystery Dungeon Wii", etc., or maybe just "Rescue Teams", "Explorers", and "Adventure Squads"?

    This is fairly important as various mixes of terminology is everywhere in the MD articles, and could have an effect on articles that currently deal primarily with main series stuff. (For an example of what's already there, Crunch has a different effect in MD1, but reverts to the main series effect in MD2.)

    For the game denoting abbreviations I tend to use MDRB and MDTDS where they're required. I don't think I've seen any abbreviations of them in the text portion of a paragraph.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.
    Demons run when a good man goes to war.
    Night will fall and drown the sun,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will´╗┐ rise,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the cost.
    The battle's won, but the child is lost.
