I created a proposal in Area 51: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/12972/abap-development.

The target audience is SAP developers. However, the site keeps changing the first letter to lowercase, so it looks like the target audience is sAP developers.

just change it to "developers of SAP coding in ABAP" –  devinb Jul 13 '10 at 15:16
    
@devinb: Yes, that's the obvious workaround. Just wanted to get this out there. I don't particularly care whether they fix it or not. –  BenV Jul 13 '10 at 15:35

+1 I had the same issue with a proper noun a few weeks ago, and had to use @devin's workaround. –  Pops Jul 13 '10 at 16:14
    
I have had to fix a few proper noun proposals using the workaround suggested above. –  Robert Cartaino Jul 14 '10 at 0:08
    
@Robert So is this a recognized "bug"(it's wrong), "Feature-request"(we'll fix it) or is it a "by-design"(we won't fix it) –  devinb Jul 15 '10 at 18:05
    
@David Fullerton: what was fixed? In area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/11655 it is apparently not possible to change "christians and those ..." to "Christians and those ...". The following proposals also need proper nouns: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/4262/cisco, area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/12913/…, area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/11332/myanmar-asp-net, area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/12913/… –  Peter Mortensen Jul 22 '10 at 16:27

We've made this a little better for acronyms: we don't lower case the first letter if the second letter is upper case.

what is the reason for lowercasing the first letter (except for the new rule)? –  Peter Mortensen Jul 22 '10 at 20:41

Currently, the sanctioned recommendation is to rearrange the sentence so that the first word of the description is not a proper noun.
