Silly question but seeing as this little snafu has been present since vanilla, I was wondering - Will you ever fix the extra S in pet ownership if the owners names ends with an S? Like, a character called James and his pet would be "James's Pet" - Wouldn't that be "James' Pet"

I know it's a tiny thing but it just bugs the hell out of me :P It'd be nice if the system would see the name ending in S and just add the ' instead.

I do love a good grammar discussion. ^^ I have also always had trouble with this, to the point that I'll sometimes try and reword a sentence to avoid having to make a decision about James' or James's.

I guess one option could be to ensure you don't make a character with a name ending in "s"? ;)
