We have a dupe thread and picture change thread, but we need a name change thread also. It makes it easier for people to find things, and should order things up a bit. 
 
So people start posting names that are misspelled (or have incorrect capitalization such as a page name all in CAPS); be they creators, characters or something else. You should link the character that has the problem, and give us the right name.

done...I also added in a request of mine to your opening post for people to bring up when they come across it and that's page names with wrong capitalization, just earlier today I came across a page named "NICOLE" when it should have been "Nicole", it's nice to fix these things as we come across them because it makes the site look less like some unintelligible ten year old's fan site and more like an actual comic book encyclopedia

Thanks, and thanks...forgot the caps mistakes.
 
Edit: got this creator named Rob Lea but I've seen someone Rob Lean, so it would be great to rename him/her to Lean, so when people search for it they find it, and when people search for Lea, they also find him.
 
Edit:
Rob Lea - Rob Lean
FACELESS MAN - Faceless Man
DEMON BABY - Demon Baby
Dr. ALEXI SKARAB - Dr. Alexi Skarab

I made a mistake on a page that I created:
 
Roxy Richter - I re-read the book she appears in and she is actually introduced as "Roxanne Richter" and is called "Roxie" once (note the spelling). Roxy is how they are spelling her name in the upcoming movie, but not in the comic. Could the page be renamed to Roxanne Richter with the other names as aliases?
 
Thank you so much for your help!

Kryptonian Millitary - should be Kryptonian Military (observe: only one L), or maybe even Kryptonian Military Guild, seeing as how Kryptonians are split into official guilds nowadays. Not sure which would be more appropriate for CV, though.

@~The Wanderer~: I got rid of the extra "L" but you're the expert so you tell me if you think Guild would be better or not...

Well it has only been referenced as "Military Guild" as of recently, but since the page is only about the most recent version of Krypton's military, I guess adding "Guild" to the name wouldn't hurt anyone (especially since I could imagine it would only make the page easier to find)..and thanks, by the way :)

I have a few name changing requests to make. I'm currently working on the Hopeless Savage volumes and characters and I believe that the following pages should be changed accordingly to be consistent with the information in the books:
 
Nikki Hopeless Savage: Nikki Savage
Skank Zero Hopeless Savage: Skank Zero Hopeless-Savage
Rat Hopeless Savage: Rat Bastard Hopeless-Savage
Arsenal Hopeless Savage: Arsenal Fierce Hopeless-Savage
Twitch Hopeless Savage: Twitch Strummer Hopeless-Savage (I accidentally created a duplicate page by this name which may be waiting to be deleted - please re-name the linked page)
 
Thank you very much for your help!

@afierce: Done (and removed the extra Twitch page).  I'd forgotten how much I loved that series, thanks for adding those :)
#24 Edited by AtPhantom (14521 posts) - - Show Bio
Sobek should be changed to Famine, since that is his real superhero code name and Sobek is just a pseudonim he went on with for a while.
#25 Edited by KillerZ (1610 posts) - - Show Bio
Brute Force - Alison Summers (it used to be team under characters but I recreated it as a team , Brute Force, so this one can be renamed)
 
-----------------
Thanks, one more
 
Moe Muscles - Moe Muscle

Can someone please change the name of this team, I can't search it to add it to issues. I really don't know what else I would call it. Maybe The Council of Reeds?

@xerox-kitty: Thank you very much for your help! It is my pleasure to be adding these characters to the site (Arsenal being my username's sake after all). :)
#29 Edited by KillerZ (1610 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks for changing them. And I got one more.
 
Thud - Fon-Ti ("soundeffect" was mistaken for a name)
Dupe - Turf (can the forum topic there be removed?)

Ouch.

This character's full name is Claude Shi - the page should be renamed that. (I think I've finally cleaned up the mess of Hopeless Savage characters!)

@KillerZ: I capitalized the A but what about the "e" at the end, you don't have it in your usual typing of the name the way its spelled for the page OR your new spelling so I'm wondering if you missed it, should it be there or no?

#43 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio
@Emperor Gonzo Noir: Done.  Although nothing shows up int he search box if you start with 'The' so I've put plain old 'Unicorn' & 'Lion' down in the Alias box too :)
