    We Don't Need Topic Titles Where Every Word Starts With Another Capital.

    So please just stop incorrectly adjusting the topic titles. It just makes reading them much harder.

    It's become common practice for titles to be in Title Case. It's not something unique to this forum, and you'll be fighting a losing battle to get everyone to change this.

    Never heard of such a thing. So it's a new trend on the whole internet then?

    I agree, it's kinda annoying.

    I wouldn't say so. I certainly remember forum titles being like this 5-10 years ago. Just had a look at my bookcase, and the majority that aren't in full caps use title case. For example:

    "Two Centuries of Railway Signalling"

    This forum software also seems to decapitilize abbreviations in topic titles. Wanted to use "SPAD" in my topic title, but apparently it really needs to be "Spad"...

    I'll see if I can turn it off. Let's just say that you won't find a post by me with Q&A in the title.

    I can't even use "TSW2" in a topic title without having it automatically changed to "Tsw2". Who decided this was a smart system to implement? :P
