In the headings of the help text on the right-hand side of the Moderator Tools > Flags page, the two instances of the word "I" should be capitalized. I recognize that these headings have a lowercase-only motif; the word "I", as a proper noun (proper pronoun?) should be capitalized anyway.

  • As I don't have access to any other site's mod tools, I can't check them, so I posted here. If this is endemic (as I suspect), I'll be happy to assist in the moving of this question to MSO. – Cajunluke Sep 13 '12 at 19:14

    You can call the lower-case letters a "mofif"; I call it an error. – Daniel Sep 13 '12 at 19:21
  • @DanielLawson The sentences don't start with capital letters; I assumed that was deliberate. It could be an error, in which they should be fixed, too. – Cajunluke Sep 13 '12 at 19:27
  • The developers monitor the bug tag on all sites the last I heard so it's not necessary to migrate to the main meta. Flag it if you'd like that as it's clearly something not specific to our site. – bmike Sep 13 '12 at 19:34
  • @bmike I tend to consider incorrect capitalization (in cases like this) to be a spelling error. – Cajunluke Sep 13 '12 at 19:35
  • I'm flattening spelling and grammar to design since that covers the site design as a whole - type, copy and graphics. I agree with you in the real world this would be a spelling / proofreading issue with the copy. – bmike Sep 13 '12 at 19:38
  • @CajunLuke It might have been deliberate, but an error made deliberately is still an error :-) – Daniel Sep 13 '12 at 19:40

I agree the proofreading there is non-standard. Let's see what the site developers think...

Typos in the flag page


This will be fixed in the next deploy.
