It's super effective.
I'd probably say most camelcased formats (like VideoGame/, TabletopGame/, WebOriginal/) have this.

I'm pretty sure "Well Done, Son!" Guy should read "Well Done, Son" Guy.
These things are relatively simple (simply using the Customize Title tool); CamelCase namespaces on the other hand can tend to be a problem...

In fact, should there be a disclaimer on the tool in regards to CamelCase namespaces?

EDIT: Oh, that... I wonder why the requests had been turned down then...

[up][up] I was just about to post that.
I just requested a custom title for The Hound of the D'Urbervilles, and the apostrophe is coming out with a spurious backslash (which I definitely didn't put there).

ETA: It's displaying correctly on the actual work page, fwiw.

Uh, Don't be creepy has a slash before the apostrophe, apparently.

Could it be that the YKTTW slash bug has migrated into custom titles as well?

By the looks of it, quotation marks have the same problem. As for the probable cause, it makes sense.

The weird thing about the "Camelcased" namespace customized titles, is that SOME of them work as intended, while the majority does not. A bit of checking with the Wiki Sandbox offered the following for the "WesternAnimation" namespace:

I have yet to find rhyme or reason why those customized titles display correctly, while most other don't. They don't look like to be especially recent as submitted titles. If we could find the pattern, maybe other titles could be forced to work...

I assume it's because WesternAnimation is written in the namespace box that the screwing happnes, but when it's Westernanimation it's fine.
Still doesn't explain why Tabletopgame.Yu Gi Oh doesn't work as intended, because I know very well I submitted it with a lowercase namespace. sad

[up]Your test is TabletopGame, and Tabletopgame.Yu-Gi-Oh!. All these can break the custom title.

Yu-Gi-Oh!. Still not working, though.

[up] Actually, the namespace and page title have to be capitalized correctly when linking. For example:

WesternAnimation/MonstersInc = Monsters, Inc.
WesternAnimation/MonstersInC = Monsters In C
Westernanimation/MonstersInc = Monsters, Inc.

Still have to Writethenamespaceoutlikethis/ when on the custom title tool, though.

[up]So the namespace has to be correctly capitalized when linking, but can't be when the title is customized. I still don't get why this isn't higher priority.
I was directed here after I encountered the apostrophe issue with Sacreya's Legacy. From the original thread:

Okay. So I was trying to add an example from "Sacreya's Legacy" to a page. When I write it as "Sacreya's Legacy," the preview page displays it correctly with the custom title. But when I save it and look at it on the page, there's a "" in front of the apostrophe. What am I doing wrong?

You really didn't do anything wrong. I've had the same problem too, where I request a custom title for a work with an apostrophe, with the appearing in front of that mark on all mentions except the work page title. This problem applies to quotation marks.

On a side-note, Web Original is now an obsolete namespace, and generally we don't place new works on the Main/ namespace.

[up] The capitalization of the namespace only makes a difference when you're requesting a custom title, not when you're Wiki Wording it on the wiki.
Web Original is obsolete? Where do things like that go now, then?
[up]The Web Original namespace is being split into a bunch of (6?) more specific namespaces. They were finalized on this thread.

I'm going over the The World of Darkness and some of the custom titles for its games are not displaying the colon. Sandbox for reference: Sandbox.The World Of Darkness

You are right! It works if you submit title with namespaces such as "Westernanimation" of "Videogame".

Though it only means we can customize properly new titles. The ones which are already submitted with the camelcased namespaces can't be changed by this method. I've tried, but it seems the fact an identical custom title already exists block the submission. Is there a way to circumvent this and correct the existing titles?

Wait, nevermind — apparently Blog.Limyaaels Fantasy Rants didn't actually have its custom title requested yet.

In uffish thought
Stus Show has the slash problem with its apostrophe. It doesn't show up when typed with the dot as Radio.Stus Show, for some reason.
If I Can't Have You... is also suffering from the slash problem.
