In the explanation by the community moderator's answer

The all-caps style of captions is inherent to the style of this site, as also evident from the site's logo text, which isn't "Movies & TV" but "MOVIES & TV". And I think this all-caps style is fitting very well to the topic .....

If so the same should be applied in the Current Community and Your Communities drop down list also. But it was not.

The all caps on the M&TV site makes sense, as the logo is in all caps.

The navigation is not specific to the site you're on, it's uniform to the Stack Exchange network's overall styling.

Making M&TV all caps in that dropdown menu would cause it to look out of place with the rest of the items in the menu.

To make this clear:

From a design standpoint, topside nav is for navigating across the entire Stack Exchange network, and anything bellow that is site specific.

  • Worth noting that other sites have funky logo choices; biology is all in lower case, Mi Yodeya isn't even in English.

    Right, but that's the logo. The text in the menu here referring to is still uniform with the other sites in that menu. At least that's what I see via the mobile app when I checked just now.
