Here's a minor display issue, but I thought it was worth bringing up.

The quotation marks on the title of Secular Talk are visible on the regular pages, something that is not true of any other series in the database.

Make a title change request.
I can find no evidence that the show has quotes in it's title.

That's the You Tube Channel Home.

I'm afraid I can't. The quotation marks are necessary for TV series when in contributor mode. When I try to submit a title correction with the quotation marks removed, the system reminds me that I'm not just changing the title, I'm changing the title type as well. I don't want to change the title type; I just want to remove the quotations marks on the regular pages.

Hi, J.:

Same situation happened to me when I submitted the series Makeup X Breakup. I entered it with the correct format for TV-series [i.e. "Title" (year)], but the primary title ended up keeping the quotation marks (IDKW ). Now, as you very well point out, it is not possible to remove them via standard update form.

As of 5 Aug 2019, there are only 26 series primary titles (parent level) which are enclosed in quotation marks. Perhaps some of them actually have quotes in their show's titles (I haven't verified it), but I suspect that there could be more instances of unnecessary ones.

     "Brooklyn Bluez"
     "Buccaneer Island"
     "Dakota"
     "Dark Armada"
     "De Raf & Ronny Show"
     "Disney as Told by Emoji"
     "Elmo - Wort des Tages"
     "Final Call"
     "Hollyscoop"
     "I Believe"
     "I mikri mas epitheorisi tou hthes kai tou simera" (1990) ← Yes, this title needs the "(1990)" removed
     "Instant Crush"
     "Jane"
     "Kleitos kai Sia"
     "LineDance"
     "Live PD Presents PD Cam"
     "Makeup X Breakup"
     "Right Swipe"
     "Secular Talk"
     "Space Explorers"
     "Star Trek: Reliant"
     "The Promise"
     "Timberwood"
     "Uk Top Restaurants"
     "Woodpecker Shorts"
     "WTF, Baron Davis"

Cheers!

Interesting!

I'll be curious to know if the staff wants any title to have quotation marks, whether the original has them or not. Either way, they seem superfluous.

Thanks for the report, yes these shouldn't be live, thank you for the sub-set ljdoncel. I've edited these examples now.

Thanks,
Will
