Screwed up custom titles to fix.:

So does A Dolls House. I think all the apostrophes produce a slash.

It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.

I've noticed that the redirect "Warhammer40K" for Warhammer 40,000 custom titles to Warhammer 40K (without the apostrophy in "40, 000").

For Kid Icarus: Uprising, the custom title (Kid Icarus: Uprising) doesn't seem to have the colon show up on any page except for the title on the top of the game's page.

Did you make the custom title as "Videogame/Kid Icarus: Uprising", with the "g" in lowercase? I've heard there must be no Wiki Word breaks in the namespace when you submit the request, or else the custom title won't work properly.

Ah, no I didn't. I was not aware of that. So is there a way I can fix it, or will it be taken care of since it's in the thread.

You can overwrite old custom titles by submitting a new request. But I did it already, for now — just wait a little and see if it works out.

Okay, thanks! ^_^

It seems not to work. The custom title wasn't accepted, for whatever reason.

The same happened when I submitted a custom title using the non-CamelCased custom title.

"Darkness is light's light of darkness as a dark farewell to dark lightness."
I'll say it now, but I've believed it for a long time: there ought to be some sort of log to show recently effected custom title changes.

World's Greatest Dad is also suffering from the slash.

Snake's Revenge also has the slash.

O' Allah, save Egypt
I've made several requests for custom-titling LightNovel.Nyarko San to "Nyarko-san", but it's either not working or it's being rejected outright, because Characters.Nyarko San still shows the old "Nyarko San" display, and the custom-title tool itself keeps saying that the standard display is "Light Novel/Nyarko San". Can anyone provide some enlightenment on this issue?

In uffish thought
For the LightNovel/ part, make sure you enter it in the custom titler as Lightnovel/NameOfWorkICantSpell, with no CamelCase in the namespace. For Characters/ part, you have to submit a new request for each subpage, as far as I can tell.

I was referring to the LightNovel.Nyarko San pothole on the characters page; I already filed a successful custom-title request for Nyarko-san.

[up] The link on the Characters page is not the problem; the problem is the way the custom-titler handles namespaces with internal capital letters. The solution is to resubmit the custom title request with the namespace as "Lightnovel"; then the link will display correctly.

(Incidentally, you appear to be confused about what a "pothole" is; but that's not the immediately relevant point.)

[up] I got that part, and already followed your previous advice. And I was just using "pothole" as a substitute for whatever it is that's the proper term here, which I either haven't come across before or had forgotten.

Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures is also suffering from the slash problem.

Eighties Dan is too.

It's super effective.
The troper Caissas Death Angel too.

On British English, someone made an edit where they replaced G Day Mate with a Pot Hole using the code; [[GDayMate G'Day Mate]]. I assumed that for some reason G Day Mate didn't have a custom title yet, so I reverted the edit and went to create one, but after entering G Day Mate, it said its custom title was already G'Day Mate. Despite this, it's not displaying with the comma (on British English at least). What's all this then?
Snake's Revenge has that weird slash with the apostrophe. (Which appears to have been pointed out already - apologies for not checking out the rest of the page.)

And Doctor Horribles Sing Along Blog. Also, why is that spelled as Dr, and yet the actual URL has "Doctor" in it?

Is there any way to fix custom titles for wikiworded namespace articles yet?

 250 Deboss, Tue, 22nd May '12 11:20:37 PM from Awesomeville Texas
I see the Awesomeness.
Break the custom title, resubmit the custom title with a non-wikiworded namespace. Videogame instead of Video Game on the Custom Titler.
