Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-28 20:58:14 UTC
Hallo!

Sorry if this is a duplicate. As far as I remember this topic has beed addressed
'somewhere' here.

In bug 1574 comment 2
Bug 1574: Account cannot be created with initial lower case letter
Brions explains why the first letter of an account is always capitalized
(regardles of the setting of $wgCapitalLinks).

However for account 'Foo' both pages 'user:Foo' *and* 'user:foo' (and all talk
pages and subpages) can exist side by side when $wgCapitalLinks=false; . This is
quite confusing and many errors can result out of this.

example:
The change
http://yi.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=user_talk:gangleri&diff=7849&oldid=4730
was generating a "You have a new message" for account [[wikt:yi:user:Gangleri]]
with the "diff" link
http://yi.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=user_talk:Gangleri&diff=cur
which is irelevant for that change.

*request*
1) Disalow lowercase pagenames in the user and user talk namespace if
$wgCapitalLinks=false; This request handles also subpages.
2) *If* possible: Please move all affected pages with a script before aplaying
the change; please do not overwrite existing pages but use the same mechanism
used when changing namespaces (and both pages
'<translated_project_namespace>:foo' and 'project:foo' exists). Thanks in advance!

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

*note*
Bug 5230: Lower case account topics
is about "existing" inconsistencies related to bug 1574:
a) [[wikt:fr:special:Listusers/sysop]] lists "moyogo (sysop)"
b) [[wikt:fr:special:Contributions/moyogo]]
Such accounts starting with initial lower case letters still exists in Wikimedia
Foundation projects.

Tracking this with the title rewrite bug. See my comment on bug 13750 which notes how case insensitivity can be accomplished with the system being worked on.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2008-04-16 19:03:13 UTC
Dropping this from title rewrite; unnecessary.
