Removing ★[edit]

Hey there. A question: Why are you removing ★ icons from file names and replacing it with "star?" In particular, the Dessert Paradise.ogg file is the official name from the official soundtrack. Please, do not change official names. If you have questions just ask, thanks. Xion4ever 13:07, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Also, please don't change file names from KHIII to KHII. TheSilentHero 13:27, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
I'm randomly jumping into this discussion! Not all browsers are able to render symbols and windings. It's most common with browsers running on older mobile devices, but sometimes it's also the result of simply not updating your browser. Less commonly, a hiccup in the browser itself or someone actually not having windings installed anywhere on their PC. It happens. In these cases, the ★ would instead show up as a 🖉, or less commonly an alt code - a string of three numbers. It's possible that the star didn't render properly for him and thought he was fixing it. I'm not advocating one way or another with regards to filenames; this was just my "the more you know" moment. :) So with that, I'm randomly jumping out! --Samoa Joe (talk) 14:32, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Regarding symbols: due to the issues Joe mentioned, we have added certain symbols- including this star and Kingdom Hearts series exclusive characters- to our site's editing window. Underneath the save changes/edit window screen is a box containing symbols. If you click on whichever symbol/character you need, it automatically adds it to where your cursor is in the edit window. To clarify, no one is angry or upset at mistakes happening. We all make them. We're just trying to help inform on rules/clear up why their edits were reverted. Xion4ever 14:50, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Generally due to Star being more universal in being able to type, as well as being much more URL linking friendly. It would not easily be seen as a file name per se, but it would be easier to use. I did not see much harm in using a more code-friendly synonym for the file name because the official name is still what is seen. As for KHIII/KHII, there are a series of redirects that I did not make that redirect the icon to the second iteration. I presume they are the same in each. I am only replacing their usages on sections with no visual change to the space. I am brainstorming ways to alter the templates so that these redirects are not an issue, likely with some form of if-else to auto-generate a file unless a different one is manually inserted.

The current naming scheme includes the ★ symbol. If you have an issue with that, you should bring it up on a forum instead of moving these pages on your own.
The files are redirects for a reason. Once we get the KHIII files, we can just upload them, remove the redirect, and we won't need to change anything. There's no need to alter the templates, it works fine like this. TheSilentHero 16:51, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
