mods, where are you? been a month since the last update.

Yeah, and things like aliases can be pretty important in some specific cases. I wonder why they didn't choose to put that behind a point value.

Yea that would make a lot of this easier as users with high wiki point values could help out at least with adding game aliases.

Rename: Wannabe Chestburster -> Hidden Parasite + Alias: Chestburster

This concept should apply to actual Aliens chestbursters too, since they do appear in games.

Alias: War of the Roses -> War of the Roses: Kingmaker

Remane: Obscure -> Final Exam. And add Obscure as an alias

@def: Aliases are too easily abused to give normal users points for them.

that's why you'd make the point threshold relatively high, or go through some high point wiki users manually and give them alias-rights. not day-1-duder-who-uploaded-100images.

Perhaps aliases could be moderated even for >5000-point users?

I think that creates just more work for mods. My suggestion was based on trying to help mods out a bit, not cause more trouble :D

They already have to come in here and go through all the posts. They would have to process more aliases with direct submission, of course, but it'd be a streamlined process. Limiting it to high-points users would keep it from being too crazy.

At any rate, there must be a better solution than the current one. It's not great for users or mods right now.

Unfortunately, most people don't understand the requirements of a good alias. There used to be a serious problem with people overloading pages with useless aliases that no one would realistically use or make no sense, aliases that weren't required because the page name would be caught in a search anyway, or the occasional joke alias (some of which were startlingly offensive, particularly when it came to concepts).

The character page for Juan should be renamed with his full name, Juan Aguacate.

Also, it might be a good idea to give DriveClub the alias of Drive Club (with a space.)

#521 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2395 posts) -

Rename: Freddy Flintoff's Powerplay Cricket -> Freddy Flintoff's Power Play Cricket (my mistake when creating the page, the cover art shows a space there)

+ Alias: Shane Watson's Power Play Cricket 2011

Thanks!

There's already an Isabelle page. I had written up that there was a dupe, but the Shizue alias was only added to the Isabelle page and the Shizue page hadn't been deleted.

So the A.N.N.E thing really isn't happening, is it? My reasoning for why the alias is valid doesn't even get a reply and the request keeps getting ignored?

#531 Edited by BlackLagoon (1446 posts) -

(rename) Sei Madou Monogatari -> Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God (official English name)

(rename) Dangan Ronpa 1 & 2 Reload -> Trigger Happy Havoc Dangan Ronpa (official English name)

EDIT: ...wait, the Dangan Ronpa one is wierd. In Japan, it's a compilation of two PSP games ported to the Vita with various enhancements and revisions, but the American release by NISA will only feature the first game. Not sure what to do here... Use the original stand alone PSP game page as a basis for NISA's release?

Mega Man: Wily Wars should be renamed to Mega Man: The Wily Wars, because that's what it says on all images of the game.

***

Add NHL Hockey '94 as an alias, since that's the Genesis/Mega Drive title of the game.

***

Add Strider II as an alias, since that's the Genesis/Mega Drive title of the game in EU.

***

Add Lotus II as an alias, since that's the Genesis/Mega Drive title.

Add Probotector as an alias, since that's the EU/PAL title.

Trying to distract myself with work...

Please add the alias Secrets of Raetikon to SECRETS OF RÆTIKON

or rename it that in case the AE symbol isn't supposed to be in the main title.

Is there a good reason why Sleeping Dogs doesn't have an alias of "Sleepy Dogs"? (alternatively, Sleepy Dawgs) :D

Please rename Based on Creepypasta to Based on Urban Legend. A creepypasta is just an internet-based (manufactured) urban legend.

I think "Scavenging" should exist in the search box somehow, and an alias for Loot Gathering makes sense.

Edit: cool thx.

We should probably have ITG and ITG2 as aliases for In the Groove and In the Groove 2, respectively.

@hailinel said:

@psoplayer: Joke aliases aren't allowed.

And yet I see people refer to it as "Sleepy Dogs" so frequently that I could actually make a case for it being a useful alias to someone who didn't know any better.

Jumped the gun on my poor translation on this one, plus I didn't realize there was an English release.

Entry: Line Drop: Spirit Catcher Rei-Rei

Name Change: Line Drop: Spirit Catcher

Alias: Line Drop: Spirit Catcher Lei-Lei
