So, standard sentence capitalization is OK? I hope. I learned a LONG time ago that was proper. Just asking...

Yes, I made that mistake trying to edit members post titles as a mod early on. And was corrected by a member here. (You know who you are). I'm glad this thread was made, to clear things up a bit. :puffy:

Or, did you wander into the office and naively seek clarity?
Damn Warren, you know me better than I do. Ha ha! Yes, after I had posted that above, I thought, "wait, did someone tell me that, or was it just a Cotton Boll Twist hallucination?"

Once, when smoking Cotton Boll Twist, I had a great conversation with Henry VIII for two hours.

DM your making me think about how it's been awhile since I smoked some Cotton Bole. Not sure if I still have any. Maybe I'll just go order some, just because.

I still do that, every morning I spend at least 15 minutes to correct all the wrong titles on the main page. I wasn't warning anyone, but from now on I will leave a small note under the post of the OP. He who doesn't want to see that note should use the SHIFT key on the keyboard or send me a tin of Penzance, up to you.

Title corrected as per standard English: Capitals for important words; lower case for articles and non-key words.
But there was one in all caps- was that changed?

I am of the impression that there are standards for thread titles, pretty much the same as for titles in English language newspapers, magazines, articles.
