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.
was generating a "You have a new message" for account [[wikt:yi:user:Gangleri]]
with the "diff" link
which is irelevant for that change.
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]]
Bug 5230: Lower case account topics
is about "existing" inconsistencies related to bug 1574:
a) [[wikt:fr:special:Listusers/sysop]] lists "moyogo (sysop)"
Such accounts starting with initial lower case letters still exists in Wikimedia
*** Bug 5230 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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.
Dropping this from title rewrite; unnecessary.
