New parentheses code breaks (near-)Woodall multi-reservation link

Multi Reservation:14 (which is the reservation for my personal project for filling in the gaps in Woodall and near-Woodall k's) uses a custom piped link in its name, designed to display a formatted k in the link output. However, the new code in this template is deleting the link due to the parentheses around "Near", resulting in ugly code displaying on Riesel 2 Missing-range. While the merits of a redlink to a page that will likely never be created are debatable, ideally this template should only omit the link for a contributor when the whole string is parenthesized, not just part of it. -happy5214 03:53, 3 August 2021 (UTC)

I've change the name without Vk-template, so no using of "!" as delimiter for the link. In the missing range table there's no link, because the MR-Name contains a "(", which the template will ignore to make a link from it. Users in brackets do not get a person page from this, until the real name is known and inserted instead. Karbon (talk) 08:05, 3 August 2021 (UTC)
I understand the original reasoning, but I just think it should only omit the string if the whole string is surrounded by parentheses, not just part of it. Will there be a case where a partially parenthesized name refers to a person whose real name is unknown? There could theoretically be a case of a project or drive with parentheses around part of its name. -happy5214 00:10, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
So this project lasts for a longer time, I've created an own project page for those reserved values. To change this template for determing the first and last character as brackets, it's more time consuming. Using the template also for creating the prime tables would take even more time than in this version. The easier way is to change the project name, it's only a name here, nothing official. After completing the search, the project page/category can be deleted. Karbon (talk) 08:50, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
