Stan,
It is a pain I know but it is the rule IMDb have....my advice is to submit it incorrectly but in a way that fits the IMDb overall rule (ie Am/Fm).

With this submission include a misc comment that states the title should be AM/FM - ideally providing a link to some proof (although this should not be necessary).

If this fails we can try to do a title change afterwards - the site has no agenda to stop you having the correct title, these rules exist for the majority so yes an exception should be possible (just not easy!)

This title is listed as "Am/Fm".  Should it be "AM/FM"?

Hi Nobody -

The title capitalization updates you requested have been forwarded to our title editors and, if approved, should appear online with the next available update of our servers. 
Cheers!

Currently, IMDb has "AM/Fm" as the title
for both tt3224272 and tt4267704.

For tt3224272, the poster image has the title "AM/FM", all caps.
Could that suffice as evidence to support a request to change
the IMDb title to "AM/FM"?

It appears that the OP's (Stan Guingon's) request pertained to tt4267704.
Can that IMDb title also now be changed to "AM/FM"?

Who is this "Michelle" from IMDB? She or someone from her group should rectify this issue once and for all.

Stan,

You should submit a "miscellaneous correction" asking the page editor to make this change as the normal edit form won't automatically allow all caps since such a thing would most often be a mistake.
Unfortunately, at this time (one year after that reply), it appears that the "miscellaneous correction" option cannot be used to request a change of title.  Instead, the rejection notice advises that the request should be made via the help desk if necessary.

Stan, if IMDb does not respond here within the week, you can try contacting them through the help desk contact form.
