StudlyCapsSticky Caps[edit]

When I type studly caps into Google I get 60,100 hits but when I type sticky caps in I get 965,000 hits. Do you think studly caps should be moved to sticky caps? Or have sticky caps redirect here? It doesn't do so at the moment. GracieLizzie 15:33, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I decided to make the terms StickyCaps, Sticky Caps and StIcKyCaPs redirect to this article. GracieLizzie 23:52, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Is Studly Caps inspired by the "Ransom note" lettering used by Punks, especially the Sex Pistols album Italic textNever Mind the BollocksItalic text?

I'd always called these PoMoCaps (Post Modern Caps), which I thought I borrowed from someone else, but maybe I invented it (I find no occurrences online). A number of Post-Modern essays employed apparently random capitalization in their titles and text. Schizombie 01:33, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

I wouldn't like to guess at how common this is, but to some people, Studly Caps is synonomous to Camel Case. e.g. Mjs 11:13, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

This was mentioned in Learning Javascript (O'Reilly) by Shelley Powers... but I don't think I can add it as a reference since IT'S primary reference is this page on Wikipedia. Thought I would mention it so everyone was aware it was referenced in a publication in case someone goes ahead with deletion. Princemuchao 01:04, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

I removed the "Unreferenced" article tag which suggests the article has no cited sources. Each paragraph is clearly cited. ~ Agvulpine (talk) 12:16, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Vile nonsense[edit]

Clearly unreferenced, non-notable drivel. I don't see how the typing habits of a few 12-year-old kids is wiki-worthy. In fact, I regard this as some of the most pointless information, and would like others to also consider questioning the credibility and usefulness of this article. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs 00:51, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

What does "Leet" and "Warez" have to do with this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:17, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


This page is mainly a definition for Studly Caps. I propose it be copied to Wikitionary and this page deleted since Wikipedia is not a dictionary. Fixer23 (talk) 05:55, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Here's another voice for deletion. This article in less than notable, in fact it's trivial and even pointlessly stupid. May as well replace it with an article about what my cat ate for breakfast, that would be more important to the world. (talk) 11:09, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
I created a StudlyCaps entry on English Wiktionary today. However, contrary to what this Wikipedia article claims, it seems to refer to UpperCamelCase, not to aNy oLD MeSs. Equinox 18:04, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Studly capsAlternating caps – This is the most common term nowadays and the term "studly caps" is ambiguous as seen above.  Nixinova  T  C   04:10, 6 May 2020 (UTC) Relisting. buidhe 05:18, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
