I see an inconsistency issue in the Movies & TV site's question page compared with other Stack Exchange communities.

Right-hand side bar section titles in CAPS.

In the right-hand side bar section titles are shown in CAPS. When inspecting the element the actual contents are Camel case but the text-transform : uppercase; is applied. The same text-transform style does not exist in other communities' page.

Screenshot of side bar:

Screenshot of inspect the element for the titles:

After removing the text-transform the titles are displaying correctly.

Without caps

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Catija, ale, Nathan Tuggy, Anthony Pham, Werner
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

We already have two topics discussing it on M&TV, which is the appropriate place for this.

First, in February 2015, Nicael asked that they be uncapped and the overwhelming response was "NTY, we like them in caps":

Then, in April 2015, they were uncapped anyway, "by design". The answer from Kurtis reads:

Along with the new profile, we've been been converting sites across the Stack Exchange network to a new CSS framework. As we have been doing this there is an ongoing critical rethinking of which site elements should be custom per site vs. which should be standard across all sites. The community bulletin is one of those items that we felt wasn't necessary to customize—this makes it more of a global network feature and more recognizable to users who visit more than one of the SE sites. Plus it makes it easier to launch new features around the bulletin in the future. I apologize for the lack of communication around the change, it was not intentional.

I'm not certain why the rest of them were not similarly reduced to mixed case but, certainly this should be an issue brought up on M&TV Meta, not on Meta.SE?

  • So why did you answer instead of casting a close vote? How does this answer the question/bug report? – ShaWiz Dec 31 '15 at 14:39

    @ShadowWizard I did both. I wanted to include the information about the other topics which is easier to do in an answer than anywhere else. Part of the "answer" protocol includes adding additional information to the question, not strictly only answering it. That's pretty standard on a lot of Meta questions. – Catija Dec 31 '15 at 14:40
