The OP is wanting to set up alias names on the same topic with different capitalisation, not different topics.

Why? That makes no sense.

He explained why wants to do it in the first post.

His explanation makes sense to me. He is avoiding having a topic called only "green" because it will cause too many links.

Yup.. in my case, it is not colors, but titles that can have different meanings in different organizations. Regardless, at least some of us have use for this.

I use things with the same name all over the place. That isn't a problem. If he wants to use auto-accept based on capitalization I simply have to say that auto-accept is almost always a bad idea.

What he wants breaks my realm and breaks how I do things. I still remain unalterably opposed to this.

It could be a setting you have to enable globally so kbs would be ok. That makes everyone happy. I would like it too. PF2 capitalizes or italicizes rules elements to keep things like lock from linking all the time if we had this option plus an option to require a particular font element to be an auto key

+1

This approach would be very useful for me.

Why does allowing multiple aliases just with different capitalisation break your realm?

Because an alias is a distinct name and making every different capitalization distinct breaks my realm, and likely lots of other peoples, just to let this one guy use auto-accept.

But... But it only comes into play when a person is using the Case Sensitive setting on an alias. Instead of *only* being allowed to detect *one* combination of case sensitivity, this feature would allow you to detect variations of capitalization.

I cannot fathom how this breaks anything.

Would you kindly walk me through a specific, exact situation where this change would negatively affect your realm? Not an "ab vs. Ab vs. AB" hypothetical. Something real. Because for the life of me, all I can figure is that you're violently opposed to something I'm not suggesting.
