Something that has bugged me in S.T.O: Dual Heavy Cannons > Dual Heavy Cannon. ('Cannon' is already a plural and can't have an 's' at the end )

Though this could get messy considering the different countries represented on these forums:

Aluminum (American) > Aluminium (Australian)

Americanize (American) > Americanise (Australian)

:p

As a rule naming rights go to those who discover/predict and/or perfect. To the best of my knowledge A Brit, Sir Humphry Davy, predicted Aluminum, and called it first alumium (this was in 1807) then changed it to aluminum, and finally settled on aluminium in 1812. His classically educated scientific colleagues preferred aluminium right from the start, because it had more of a classical ring, and chimed harmoniously with many other elements whose names ended in –ium, like potassium, sodium, and magnesium, all of which had been named by Davy.
