Incorrect article name

This article is named incorrectly, because it shows in-game as "Book 6, Chapter 5: Old Friends and New Tidings". As far as I know, wiki quest articles are and always have been named using the exact in-game spelling, or is there something that I've missed? --Ravanel (talk) 10:58, 15 March 2012 (EDT)

It is true that the page is named differently from what is shown in game. And IMO, it should use the same name as the in-game quest. That being said, there is a long history of discussion (that I'm too lazy to cite), from which I gleaned that the epic quests here are named with a standard pattern that excludes the volume and book numbers. When I chose the names for the U6 epic quests, I followed the same pattern as has been used here in the past. If, at some point in the future, we decide that these pages should be named differently, this is a job for a bot to apply a global rename to all epic quest pages, and to fixup all the links. While it would be nice to do it right, I tend to favour being consistent.
Now perhaps I should be adding the book number to the name= parameter so that the quest info box displays what you see in the game. I somewhat automatically used the {{subst:PAGENAME}} that I use for all other quests.
