    The "plural UTAU" filter put in place which removes the s from the end of UTAU if added has the potential to break Soundcloud links. On top of the obvious, if a title for a track contains "UTAU's" then, in the URL, the apostrophe gets removed. You could argue that the swear filters would break links too, and that'd be correct, but it's MUCH less likely to find those words in the URLs or titles of Soundcloud tracks, except for in, say, the titles of Soundclown tracks, but people generally don't post those on here, so that's not much of an issue.

    On top of this, I'd also like to mention that it looks like this filter might sometimes cause some confusion as to whether someone meant one UTAU voicebank or multiple. These are the "similar threads" I was shown while writing this post:

    test:


    Code:
    https://soundcloud.com/zokun/aaawav-UTAU
    As you can see, the original link in the code is edited, and the soundcloud link doesn't show up.

    This is such a horrible thing to enforce in such a way. There is no reason to have this filter to silence people's preferences over an unofficial plural form of a noun.

    Nope, not doing this debate again. Marking this thread resolved per previous resolution.

    Feel free to use Bitly and other URL shortening services if the URL specific problem persists.
