So, yesterday I stumbled upon an issue that I believe should be addressed regarding special characters (like é and è) in niche names. Sometime last year I suggested the Pokémon niche, which got upvoted 100% and that é in the title is how it should be spelled canonically. As you can see, the system turned the URL into /poke-mon due to the é character, which I don’t think is right. I’m not exactly sure how SEO-friendliness should be optimized so please correct me if this is the right way to do it.
Using the search function for “Pokemon”, 3 other subniches pop up that all neglected this é but the one I initially suggested called “Pokémon” doesn’t show up. Also, the only purchased niche on the subject, PokeMon Go, has the worst name.
Any thoughts on this?
