It's not a big deal but it would be nice if existing occurrences of "AskUbuntu" were changed in questions and answers because Ask Ubuntu is official. Or people could do so when they come across "AskUbuntu" but wouldn't that be a trivial edit, assuming there's nothing else to fix in a question or answer?

  • If you want you can start editing instances manually, and editing the rest of the question/answer of course, searching for misspellings, formatting, tags. There are 12 pages right now... askubuntu.com/search?q=askubuntu

  • @mateo_salta, but what if there is nothing else to fix? It then becomes a trivial edit.

I wish. You can try this. Or this?

    But this is the most minor of edits... Bumping questions around just to add a space should not be done.

  • @Marco Ceppi, Thanks but it's way beyond me. I don't know programming at all :(

  • @Oli, that's why I did just one and stopped. I thought if there's some way the system could handle it then that would prevent a rash of edits for something trivial.

    +1 @Oli this post is to point out that if a question has askubuntu in it there's a good chance the rest of the question could require edits. Never make or submit an edit just to fix this one word. Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 15:18
  • A script I wrote did that for tags. It isn't logical because of the captcha

  • Please don't script things against the site. If it's really a problem (150 questions is not a real problem) then we can ask Stack Exchange for support. Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 15:44
