I noticed that the tabs on the homepage (active, featured, etc.) were made "Sentence case" as part of the redesigning efforts. Previously, they were all lowercase.

Before: (taken from site without new design)


Why was this change made?

Note that this isn't a request to change them back to lowercase; I just want to know why this design change was made.

    +1 I'm puzzled by the downvotes, as this is a neutral question. While I can't answer for the staff, I personally think that sentence case inside boxes looks better than lowercase inside boxes. Without boxes (our profiles), I'd stick with lowercase. But perhaps some study was done or it was a "style consensus." – Jason Bassford Jun 22 '18 at 15:22

    Agree with @Jason, putting it in a box kind of makes it expected to become Sentence case, hard to explain why, not UX expert, just my feeling. Also, this isn't restricted to homepage tabs, it's like this for all tabs, e.g. in Users page, Tags page, and more. – Shadow Jun 24 '18 at 11:41
