Current submission form at generates a post where the slug is the title field.

For some locales such as Japanese, the auto-generated slug is problematic because it uses percent-encoding and can be 1) hard to read, 2) very long, and 3) just not pretty.

@Nao In the given example, what would you have put in the slug field instead? English translation? ascii transliteration?

Don't most (chrome?) browsers decode that when it's viewed in the URI anyway?

Decoding the slug is not an issue but a long url is not easy to handle for the reasons I listed.
As a more concrete example: in a small input field the URL would cover most of the field.

As an alternate slug, English translation is good, or even the post ID.
