Could I get "Lady Bow" added as an alias to the character Bow? It'd be better if they were switched (Bow as an alias for the character Lady Bow) but just having that would be a good change.

That can be done, actually. We have the technology. 
 
Well, the moderators and staff have the technology. I don't.

I guess this is an appropriate one:
Burnout Paradise
Should now include "Burnout Paradise Complete Edition" as that's a full download (and I believe retail) version.

Request to add Hamuko Arisato and Minako Arisato to the Persona 3 Portable Heroine page. They're both unofficial titles from the Japanese and American fanbases respectively, although I still think they'd help since they're the first thing a lot of fans will be thinking when searching for her page.

Wasn't the Male protagonists name Minato instead of Minako? (According to the official manga anyway.)

Yes, that's pretty much where the fan-made name of Minako came from since it's just the female version of the same character.
 
 
Edit: oh, also, request to add Donkey Kong Land 3 to the Donkey Kong Land III page. Tried going there for the releases quest (curse whoever added the Gameboy Color there already) but it was not to be. Shame there's no quest for this instead.

Searching "Alien Crossfire" will still make it show up without the alias, since that's part of the title.

When I think T3, I think Terminator 3, and then I become sad because that was not a good movie.

@StarFoxA: Is that so? I was under the impression that I needed to add Sid Meier's name everytime to look it up. Well there's no harm either way really, alias or not.

Neo Super Robot Wars - add "Shin Super Robot Taisen" as an alias
With the release of Super Robot Wars Neo on the Wii, it would be beneficial to add the Japanese name of the Playstation game to better differentiate the two.  It wouldn't hurt to add "Super Robot Taisen Neo" as an alias to the Wii title as well.

Jack - Add Subject Zero
Evony - Civony

Carter-259 - Generic Space Marine #259 (Just kidding). But seriously, add Noble 1 - that's his designation inside the Noble team. 
 
What's the policy for superheroes and their real names ? Typing in a heroes real name doesn't bring up any results. E.g. Bruce Wayne.

@S1LENT_ASSASS1N: Some of those are pretty ridiculous. Why would we ever search for Geometry Wars 1? Searching Geometry Wars would make it show up. And GT1 for Gran Turismo? Maybe GT, but even that's a stretch. Just adding acronyms for every game page is pretty needless, except for pages where that game is commonly referred to as that acronym (e.g. KOTOR).

Agree 100%. Acronyms should only rarely be applied IMO. No need to abbreviate everything.

#143 Posted by mracoon (4971 posts) -
@Kovie: I've renamed the page to delete so it's more obvious to people that the page has been marked for deletion. The reason it's being deleted as there's already another SC:DA page and the two are being merged together.

#144 Posted by LordAndrew (14426 posts) -
@mracoon: We just recently had another deletion discussion where deletion was rejected by the moderator. Seems like there needs to be more clear rules as to what's allowed and what isn't. I've seen this kind of inconsistency in the past, but I assumed that was resolved and that all the moderators were on the same page now.
#145 Posted by mracoon (4971 posts) -
@LordAndrew:  I don't know anything about those games but it had a delete alias so I just changed the title to delete. I've changed it back now.
