Title of Repl has "(1)" in it, but no duplicate Repl exists

I have a “(1)” in the title of two of my Repls, do not know why. No duplicates exist.

Expected vs Current Behavior:
Expected: Has a normal title.
Current: Has a “(1)” in title, indicating a duplicate.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Make a Repl
  2. Make sure the Repl is completely unique, with a unique title, template, everything.
  3. See if it has “(1)” in the title.
    I do not know if this would be able to reproduced easily.

I do see two repos with the same name in your screenshot.
And given that the description is different, it means they a two different repo’s. It does not matter if they are duplicate, name must be unique.


I don’t understand. Is it because C++ and C# have special characters and it counts it as the same title?

Actually, that worked. Thank you!

Never trust special character :grinning:


I think the reason is because when replit compares repl names, it "slug"ifies it, basically turning it into a url-safe string. For you, it’s “C++ stuff” which converts to “c-stuff”, with the “++” being deleted. same with “C# stuff” → “c-stuff”. You can check the repl link for the "slug"ifying in action.


The special characters # and ++ ultimately get omitted from the final slug, so technically they do have the same name. (Random Number Generator (C) and Random Number Generator (C) (1), same with c stuff and c stuff (1)
