Description

Hi. When opening transcluded video files, the title in the titlebar of the dialog, is the file name with many underscores. It would be nice to replace them by spaces.

Please provide an example link to allow reproducing what you see.

Why you aways assume the readers are so stupid? Very well, here you can see a movie. I took the first movie I saw in Commons.

@IKhitron: I do not see how anyone "assumed the readers are so stupid". I've explained to you several times that if you want to see some code changed, you need to provide clear steps to reproduce instead of writing a short line as a task description.

In this specific case, "the caption is the file name with many underscores" made me first think of subtitles instead of the title bar of the overlay popup. So I had to spend time testing myself - time I could not spend on helping other community members in other tasks.

Very well. But still, I can't unfortunately guess when you'll understand something or will not.

@IKhitron: That's why I've asked many times for a list of steps to reproduce that allow others to see the problems that you report.

@IKhitron please understand that this has nothing to do with stupidity. It has to do with bandwidth (someone can only fit a tiny percentage of the entire technology stack in his brain) and accuracy (what might seem logical to you to click, might not seem logical to me [hell maybe there are two links with the same goal yet different behavior]).

And I myself also totally didn't find your problem (not even with the link, it actually took aklapper's description). Please be more considerate towards others.

Very well. But still, I can't unfortunately guess when you'll understand something or will not.

And this is why you describe ALL STEPS, exactly so that both you and the reader don't have to make guesses and assumptions.

I'll try. But maybe I'm so stupid so I can't understand when the description is good enough and when it misses parts.

You're not. We all learn together. :)
