Sorry if this has been discussed already.

Disney/Pixar's latest animation Walleee is just about to be released in DVD and Blu-ray.

If I have to guess, name of this movie can be cause some ping-pong on contributions.

I don't know is the poll needed but I hope that it doesn't make a harm.

Actual question is, how to write the title name ???
- WALL or Wall
- sign before E => Bullet, middle dot or regular hypen-minus

If only because IMDb uses a stylized graphic character we should not. 

The official site generally uses a hyphen in any text representation of the name.
Bad movie?  You're soaking in it!

I would always try to follow the DVD/Blu-ray cover so looking at the link that tweeter gives, it would be WALL•E

New filter has been added to replace • and · with - in the title only.
In addition, " -" will be replaced with "-" (space before dash removed)

So, Ken, if it's submitted as Wall(dot)E it'll be Wall-E when it comes out the other end?  I can just imagine people resubmitting and banging their heads against the wall trying to get that dot to stick!

In the case of profile updates, it will show with the dash in the contribution submission page, so they can see it before it is submitted.

My own vote was WALL•E

Based on this Ken's info WALL-E is the way to write it instead of Wall-E, even the poll isn't favoring it?

WALL-E because it be comes from Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class.

The extended character • does not show properly in all places in the program, hence the decision to convert it to '-'

Maybe this is a good time to plead for full Unicode support in version 4.0?

Oh, this is why my recent contribution of my full audit of the movie "Go" wanted to change the German title from "Go! - Sex, Drugs & Rave'N'Roll" to "Go!- Sex, Drugs & Rave'N'Roll".
It is quite common for German movie titles to have an additional tag which is usually put after the title with " - " in-between (not to be confused with episode title).

Would you remove this automatic replacement again? Would very much be appreciated. Thanks!

This was a bad change since it breaks a lot of profiles where title includes original title and localized title for example:

Title: The Village - Kylä
Original Title: The Village

Title: This Girl's Life  - Erään pornotähden elämä -
Original Title: This Girl's Life

..and so on... There are plenty of those

EDIT: You create and remove filters faster than I type  Thanks for removing that one Ken.

That's one of the server-side changes in 3.5 - a filter system that's easy to update without interfering with the live site.
