Description Andre Engels 2005-08-12 08:12:01 UTC
The Chinese page given in the URL does exist, but when its title (巴尔米拉环礁)
is submitted to [[zh:Special:Export]], it is not found.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-08-12 08:18:46 UTC

Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-08-12 08:20:11 UTC

which seem to alter the output display of the title.
Comment 6 Andre Engels 2005-08-12 10:53:59 UTC
Yes, that title works... But how am I as a simple reader (or in this case, bot
operator) to know that I should use the traditional rather than the simplified
form of the title in this case?
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2005-08-12 22:59:47 UTC
That's exactly why page titles should always be shown exactly as is, not customized or
