Won't Fix IP Address Information Phrase Inconsistencies

    The following phrases are inconsistent and should be title case because all other headings and sub-headings, whether overlays or not, use title case (e.g., Browsing Preferences, Your Account, etc.). They're also inconsistent because the phrase for a guest's IP address is title case.

    • Phrase: ip_information_for_post
    • Location: Click IP on a post
    • Current: IP address information for post #X by User
    • Fix: IP Address Information for Post #X by User

    • Phrase: ip_information_for_profile_post
    • Location: Click IP on a profile post
    • Current: IP address information for profile post by User
    • Fix: IP Address Information for Profile Post by User

    • Phrase: ip_information_for_online_user
    • Location: Click the IP address of a registered member on the Current Visitors page
    • Current: IP address information for User
    • Fix: IP Address Information for User

    This next one isn't a title case issue, but a general inconsistency issue:

    • Phrase: ip_information_for_online_guest
    • Location: Click the IP address of a guest on the Current Visitors page
    • Current: IP Information for Online Guest
    • Fix: IP Address Information for Online Guest

    It's just missing "address."

    I'm grouping these together into one bug report since they're all essentially the same thing.

    In general, these are going to be left as is. We have no hard and fast (always applicable) rules regarding title case vs not. For example, we don't always title case long strings intentionally.

    With things like this, I'm only going to focus on issues that are internally inconsistent (mostly where the elements appear side by side). This will also be weighed up against the need for new phrases (in certain cases) and where any inconsistency would be.
