Pet Names Change?

Postby Lazuliann » September 19th, 2017, 7:20 am

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, so I'm wondering now, is this an issue that just I'm having, or is everyone else experiencing this as well.

I've noticed that since the Argus patch, all my pet's names have had the capital letters removed.
For example, my Ruby Sapling was called Maple, and it was changed to maple.
I reverted it to default for now, after making a few attempts to re-do it with the first letter capitalized again which didn't work.
I may be a bit OCD but non-capitalized names bother me, it's just not aesthetically pleasing.

Trying to figure out what's gone wrong, it occurs to me that maybe it's just me, maybe an addon is interfering.
So, I thought I'd post here and ask the community if it's happening to anyone else.

Per a tip from the Bnet Pet Battle forums -- Log out, remove your Pet Battle addons (BreedID and Rematch were the 2 I replaced), log in, completely log out, re-add the removed addons (I re-downloaded them to make sure I had the most recent versions), and finally log back in. That fixed it for me.

Thank you, that worked perfectly! >^,^<
I have the same addons, and now my pets have their capitals back.

The problem seems to reappear whenever you use search function.

I have the same problem since 7.3, and I've never used pet battle add-ons. The only add-on I'm using right now is a simple coord add-on. What's interesting is that pets will be lower-case in the pet journal and regular capitalization at mouse-over.

It's driving me crazy too, so I'll have to try doing the addon uninstall/reinstall and see if that helps. Currently mine keep swapping back and forth with caps/no caps. Sometimes some pets have capitalizations, sometimes none do. Sometimes on mouseover it's correct, but a few times it's been all lower case.

That's been bothering me too! I'm glad I'm not the only one. :roll:
