Most tooltips in the topbar are capitalized:

inbox

achivements

review

help

winter

sites

But not the reputation:

reputation

Let's capitalize your reputation!

  • Please stand by while we mail you a comically large capital Y. While stocks last (which they never do) – Journeyman Geek Dec 26 '18 at 9:23
  • @JourneymanGeek me already have one from Yandex, but I will wait for another one from Stack Overflow. Thanks in advance. – αλεχολυτ Dec 26 '18 at 9:28

I think the rationale is the same as the footer copyright being lower case.

I'll quote the same sentence from Jeff:

It's not a complete sentence, so it doesn't need to be capitalized. We don't capitalize the tabs on the user page, or the homepage, for example

So, the words "your reputation" can't really be seen as "complete sentence" that stands on its own, hence should not be capitalized.

    None of those are complete sentences that stand on their own since none of them has a verb. – terdon - stop harming Monica Dec 26 '18 at 14:17
  • @terdon well, they are complete descriptions then, that describe something so can act as title. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 26 '18 at 14:25

    Sure, but so's "Your reputation". I just don't see how that one is any different and since the rest are capitalized, it does seem reasonable (although certainly not urgent) to capitalize that one as well. – terdon - stop harming Monica Dec 26 '18 at 14:28
