How to post and not look like a 10 year old.

Netiquette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You should not write in one giant sentence when you make a post. It is very hard to comprehend.

It helps if you periodicly hit the enter button. I know sometimes your train of thought just chugs on for sentences, however, it makes it easier for us if you use the enter button.

Unlike when you're writing a paper for school, you can make paragraphs even if you're not changing the subject.

By breaking up paragraphs, its much easier for people to understand what you're trying to say.

That being said, it doesn't take much effort to at least use a capitol at the beginning of a sentence and a period at the end.



EDIT: By the way, this thread is directly pointed at two members. You know who you are.

Awesome. I love it, I used to talk like that years ago on AIM and what not. But I dunno now it's just kind of second nature to use the capitals and periods :-P

I rarely read thread that are in large paragraphs. It annoys me.

Grammar is nice, but as long as I can understand that the hell they are talking about, it doesn't bother me that much.

By putting a dodgy there you mean that they are proper substitutes. Remember kids please put your dodgy's in the correct places.

Even though you didnt ask me I give it like a negative infinity or something.

If it did anything it was piss me off.

About 7 on the not funny scale.

Anyone else think that the 'dodgy' face is over used?

you mean infinity. i'd assume that by asking how not funny it was, 10 would be the most not funny

You realize you're saying that it was funny, right? Someone already pointed it out, but yeah.

When I joined here I was like, "**** it, go grammar, go correct word usage, it's good practice for writing papers anyways.

I've always tried to put in an effort when typing here, I never really check over what I'm writing but I take my time while I'm writing.


PS Evolkers: Using the word "shall" isn't making you look smarter. But then again, pointing that out isn't making me look cooler either.
