A user just posted this question:

Ubuntu booting stuck at checking battery status after upgrade from 10.04 to 11.10 [on hold]

The title literally contains [on hold]. Before the closing process was renamed, it was not possible to have a title contain [closed], so having [on hold] should not be possible either.

(Obviously it's a cross post, where the user was too lazy to check what they copy-pasted.)

  • @Oded or, edit the title! Jul 23 '13 at 8:47
  • Don't think it's a bug, more a feature request but yeah, agree it should be done. :) Jul 23 '13 at 8:50

    @ShaWizDowArd Of course it's a bug. Previously, you couldn't have [closed] in the title, so why should you be able to write [on hold]?

  • I think you still can't have [closed] in title. Bug is when something breaks or causing undesired results. Anyway it's really not a big deal. :) Jul 23 '13 at 8:53

    Bugs get squashed; feature requests get squashed sometimes, too. Doesn't mean the same thing. And none of this nonsense comment is related to anything here in the slightest! Jul 23 '13 at 8:59

    Now investigating if titles can metaphorically contain [on hold] Jul 23 '13 at 9:37

Fixed in revision 2013.7.23.1259 (meta) / 2013.7.23.883 (sites).
