Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-15 09:10:26 UTC
Hallo!

[[wiktionary:en:Special:Allmessages]] shows many messages with first character
as lowercase letter. Search for "nosuchspecialpage".

But you will see that this links to the message
[[wiktionary:en:MediaWiki:Nosuchspecialpage]] with *N* and *not* to
[[wiktionary:en:MediaWiki:nosuchspecialpage]] with *n*.

Similar behaviour is experienced with the related talk pages:
[[wiktionary:en:MediaWiki_tALk:Nosuchspecialpage]] with *N* and *not* to
[[wiktionary:en:MediaWiki_talk:nosuchspecialpage]] with *n*.

Please note that the MediaWiki namespace should remain "case sensitive"
regarding the first character but the namespace {{ns:user}} should not be "case
sensitive" regarding the first character. Related bug
bug 2874: Special namespace case sensitive when $wgCapitalLinks=false;

Am I missing the point? What's the problem? The message's name is
"nosuchspecialpage" and it's defined at MediaWiki:Nosuchspecialpage.

The issue arived from the perspective of *wiki users* which might *not* familiar
with MediaWiki topics / variables / details / messages etc.

The only world *they* know are wiki-titles. In case sensitive wiki's the names
from the list and the page titles in the MediaWiki namespace do not match any more.
