Description Korg 2008-03-12 05:24:56 UTC
In [[Special:Categories]], if the value passed in the "offset" parameter is not capitalized, the expected categories won't be displayed.

Please compare:
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Categories&offset=test
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Categories&offset=Test

Both capitalized and uncapitalized words should be allowed, like in [[Special:Allpages]]; see:
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Allpages&from=test&namespace=14
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Allpages&from=Test&namespace=14
Comment 1 Korg 2008-03-12 19:27:22 UTC
I'm not sure if it's directly related, but a similar problem appears when an uncapitalized value is passed to the "from" or "until" parameters of a category:
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Living_people&from=a
* http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Living_people&until=a

Apparently, the bug was fixed in r5018.

This is not a bug, unless in your language you have specific needs i.e. this is a manifestation of bug 30673.
The sorting in your examples is technically correct and also needed, see e.g. bug 30722; you might be confused by it, but then you should play with URL directly (the UI doesn't give you such links).
