    titles should be validated for blocked words, cap letters, extra punctuation

    Problem with sentence case is that is makes all other caps lower case. This is problematic for pronouns and acronyms.

    How do you propose the code determines the logic behind what should be capitalised? It seems overkill to analyse a thread title to such depths that you're basically emulating MS Word.

    Just cap the first letter of the title, simple

    Pronouns aren't typically capitalised in a sentence except at the start. As for an acronyms, that really is covered by the other suggestion that I linked to (the term used there is abbreviations but that really covers acronyms too).

    That's already available in the option I posted a screenshot of.

    Sentence case does this... But then you're asking it to capitalise pronouns and acronyms.

    Just cap the first word. Sentence case lower cases everything else. What looks sloppy is when a title does not have the first word caps.

    So you want to capitalise the very first letter and leave everything else the way the thread starter wrote it.
