I always use title capitalization (e.g., Blood, Sweat, and Tears!) because it leaves room for more to say.

Heh, there's an online tool for everything. Try typing BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS! in the dialog box here and notice that it correctly lower-cases "and." As they haughtily inform you, "Coordinating Conjunctions" (and, but, for) "are generally not capitalized when using title case":

That's good because it save a bit more space! :)

I'm always forgetting about this popup, but it has bothered me as well.
Thanks for the good idea, Bruce! :D
(Do you even need the second comma with a list/series? I guess not)

I wish the message headlines would use a much smaller font, maybe even 1/2 the current size.
I run into this 'glitch' all the times in my own scenarios. Slightly annoying.

While you guys fix that, change it to Historical Event, please!
Special should be reserved for scenario-relevant events.

What is the difference between Historical and Special event types, other than the name of the event?
The event options in the editor are identical.

Yes, it's only a label as far as I know. I've never noticed any difference in performance otherwise.

Gabe, that last comma in a list is a matter of debate. I happen to agree with this authority:

Always Put a Comma Before “and” in a List, No Matter What Your Old Grammar Teacher Said

Heh, it's a measure of my nerdiness that I care enough about this to sacrifice the extra space to include that comma. Much as I regret it. :roll: :)
