Check for example https://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/MV5WzfZw2FLs/info/cs10.... If you modify the English subtitles (video's original language), you can see that the metadata is different than shown in the main video page.

How can those ugly titles and dummy descriptions be changed?

    Hi Tomi,
    "cs101_unit1_02_q_First-Quiz" is the title, and "dummy description" is the description, given to the video by "Udacity" in the original YT video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc61HoVL0mc . Both were automatically imported in http://www.universalsubtitles.org/videos/MV5WzfZw2FLs/info/cs101_un... (the main Amara captioning page for the video) when it was created, and they can't be changed. True, tpievila's (your?) changes of these metadata in the English subtitles are an improvement. Nevertheless, it is important that the metadata of an original video be preserved in the main part of its Amara subtitling page, no matter how badly worded they are, because they are the ones chosen by the person who originally pubished it.
