Pinecone vs Pine Cone

Looking at this edit prompted me to check for the appropriate grammar rule. So far, the only resource I found indicates that both are correct (and only urges for consistent use). Merriam-webster seems to agree with what the article says. That leaves us with the question: which name do we choose? This would influence both the article content and the title of the page, so I think some discussion would be appropriate before renaming the page. --Stux 04:34, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

I'll go ahead and say it; I went with the two-word title because "pinecone" turned up a squiggly red line. I figure since pine cones grow on pine trees and pineapples don't, I thought having the word "pine" was consistent enough. During the tidying up edits I just made, I didn't change any instances of "pimecone" based solely on the sign in secret recipes, since it didn't show up written in Mr. Poofers Must Die.

I decided the title mostly out of personal preference, as I had seen it spelled that way more often, and it seemed to be how we spelled it most frequently on the wiki. I don't really have a strong opinion either way. Although, given that Merriam-Webster spells it as two words, one word turns up a red line, and the whole "pine cone/tree/apple" thing, I think we should keep it as two words.

We should spell it Pimecones with an "M" - 06:46, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
