As we’re starting to map out more of the space around Erf, the moon, Titan, Mars, and Europa, I thought it might be nice to talk about picking a common naming convention for bookmarks when we’re sharing them. I know we have at least two conventions in use right now - mine, which uses a place tag, a dash, and a description, and ORE’s, which uses an alphanumeric prefix and a human name. For example, I have
- ERF SPC - Mystery Asteroid
- VOID - Canderthal’s Last Stand
ORE, on the other hand, have bookmarks like
- 00 Port Sol
- M0 REDACTED
I’d love to converge these, to make it easier to quickly read and understand a bookmark. What other ways are people labelling points in space, and why?
