Hello
When editing a release or song's title in a language whose titles are not generally capitalized it's important to make sure that the words used in it aren't proper nouns. I'm saying this because of a particular album whose title people keep editing to remove a capital letter when it should be there.

República here should be capitalized, as it's obviously referring to the Republic of Star Wars, which is spelt with a capital r in Spanish. The band is named Orden 66 (the Order 66 from Star Wars), the cover of the release features a SW stormtrooper helmet and the lyrics to the eponymous song say "HATRED FOR THE JEDI, HATRED FOR THE REPUBLIC" and mention the dark side of the Force. Who knows, perhaps this band wants to mix attacks to the republic, the form of government, along with Star Wars references, but this seems unlikely, doesn't it?

I already created a report for this, so that people could be aware of this, someone fixed it but then someone else edited it back, and I don't want to engage in an edit war.

Thanks

Makes sense. It's fixed and a mod warning added about it.
