Wanna One's page has changed capitalisation 2 or 3 times already and even a staff member posted on the sbox telling people to reach a consensus because it keeps changing. Thing is some people are indeed abusing this by requesting it to be in all caps (their personal preference) when all social media accounts have it written as Wanna One.

So I suggest that the form contains a new field, dedicated to official links such as official website and social media accounts, itunes, etc. so the team doesn't change capitalisation incorrectly and to prevent people from abusing the form like this.

Cpt Chi, I'll consider your suggestion, but don't forget that the motivation for doing this in the first place was to fix issues where the track name was cOMplETEly bROkeN, not this. 

It should be self evident, and there should be consensus from the community.  If not, we should probably leave it be or treat it as a shared artist page (i.e. default to Regular Casing).  There's too many corrections to process (~1000 are added every week), I'm not going to waste my time verifying proof, if fans of the artist can't even agree what the correct casing should be.

>>>Take for example The Smashing Pumpkins, official links will say that's their name, yet they have released albums as Smashing Pumpkins

That and similar examples (one artist, many names) will be fixed with artist aliases when we eventually do those.  It's annoying that it's taking so long to get the foundation for that laid out, but as far as I know it's something we still plan to do.
