Each item in the user profile edit menu is capitalized:

enSO

Probably it's normal for English, but not good for other languages like Russian:

ruSO

Link to your profile for Stack Overflow in Russian here.

Is it possible to allow translators to decide which letter case should be used in each separate case?

Possibly related to this issue and should be fixed by modifying CSS.

  • @Won't emoji must die! At least on SE. P.S. I'm glad to see your funny comment on my post again :) – αλεχολυτ Sep 14 '17 at 20:53

    I't pretty standard in English to do this for titles, so I don't think they're going to change it for the English sites. – Catija Sep 14 '17 at 21:30

    It's indeed pretty standard in English, but it s***s. (Why? Because it harms readability.) So if this could be propagated to the English sites as well, I'd be grateful. At the very least, it would be consistent with the capitalization of (most) questions on all sites in the network. – Glorfindel Sep 14 '17 at 21:48

    @Glorfindel Headings are not question titles... I disagree with your assertion that they should be in sentence case when they're not sentences. I don't understand why "Ask question" is more readable than "Ask Question". The title of this question is annoying and difficult to read but the headings are only two or three words at most. I'm honestly more perturbed that it's not "Ask a Question". – Catija Sep 14 '17 at 21:53

    @Catija medium.com/@jsaito/making-a-case-for-letter-case-19d09f653c98 in the Apple vs. Google debate, this is one of the very few cases where I agree with Google. Actually, the optimal readability seems to be somewhere in the middle; if you capitalize all nouns, like German does, you come close. But that's a discussion for another place (and time?), we're going off-topic and it's probably my fault. – Glorfindel Sep 14 '17 at 22:03

    Not sure why this got a site-specific close vote. Russian SO isn't the only localized site. – Nathan Tuggy Sep 15 '17 at 8:39

This Is Fixed In The Next Build. I Have Also Applied The Fix On Rus.Se As Well As Es.So. On Pt.So I Have Left It As Is, Because A Trustworthy Person Has Assured Me That Speaking Like This Is A Thing In Portuguese.

  • Спасибо Вам Большое От Всего Русскоязычного Сообщества! Don't forget Ja.SO :) – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:38
  • My understanding is that there is no casing in Japanese, so that wouldn't really be an issue, right? – balpha Sep 28 '17 at 14:39

    It's a joke about Ja. – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:41
  • Because this fix should not be applied to beta sites :-D – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:45

    How long need to wait for a new build? It's still old after 15 minutes. – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:53
  • We deploy multiple times a day, but not for every single fix :) – balpha Sep 28 '17 at 14:53
  • Sometimes I see a bunch of builds (according to rev#) within a ~10 minutes. – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:55
  • Yeah, that usually happens when someone broke something and needs to rollback and/or fix :) – balpha Sep 28 '17 at 14:56
  • It's happening too often :) Will wait for build before accepting. – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 14:57
  • @alexolut where can I see the build number as well? – NVZ Sep 28 '17 at 15:37
  • @NVZ at the bottom of every page. Right angle. – αλεχολυτ Sep 28 '17 at 15:39

    @alexolut It's deployed now. – balpha Sep 28 '17 at 16:12

    Unfortunately, we still have capitalized letters on rus.stackexchange.com. Could you please fix it? meta.stackexchange.com/q/312035/379531 – Aer Jul 6 '18 at 10:18
