I added some tags to this deal (to complement the "free delivery" tag that already existed):

[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-warburtons-gluten-free-wheat-free-bread-600g-2-39-sainsbury-s/864886 ]

The tags were (as typed):

Gluten Free, Wheat Free, GF, WF, Bread, Sainsburys

When I confirmed these the thread was updated to read:

free delivery, gluten free, wheat free, gf, WF, bread, sainsburys

I went back & typed "wf" in lower case (so that it matched the automatic case-shifting of "GF" to "gf"), & still it was shifted to upper-case ("WF").

Why is this?

PS. The tags I created this thread with are...
bug, tags, UPPER CASE, lower case, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, GF, WF, Bread, Sainsburys


...and somebody else added "bfn, fp" as additional tags.

How thoughtful :)

but was it BFN or bfn?

:) We'll wait for the culprit to post to find out I suppose.

I have just gone back to another "[BUG]" thread (that you have also contributed to, thank you) & noticed the case-shifting is mixed there as well:

eh, who added the free delivery tag if you didn't? I didn't add any tags to the post :|
There's an element of auto tagging. As you've entered Free within the title, I assume that the tag has kicked in, but alas not as intended.

Removed for now, we'll look closer.

To answer some of your questions from the other thread, although I have a feeling I've answered this before: When you put a tag on your thread, it matches against that tag in the database. So if there is already a tag with the same text (case-insensitive) it puts that tag on the thread. If the first person who created that tag used a different capitalization than you, then the tag would appear different than you had entered it.

We are aware what the problem is with the "memory card, sd card, storage" tags being added, and it is in the queue.
