Weird names

Not all files from scene releases have been pred with proper names. On this page we keep a list with confirmed "errors" for those who want to keep stuff original. It also helps us decide and keep track of which files we should store in the SRRs. There will always be people that can't resist the urge to start "fixing" stuff.

Space in release names

When a group pred a release with a space in the folder name, the spaces most likely get replaced by an underscore or a dot on the presite. (is this correct?) The release will be known with the underscore in predbs. When underscores aren't allowed by the ruleset, they can get nuked for it:
