the rules are pinned in the forum announcement
<span style=\'font-family:Times\'Something told the wild geese

It was tine to go

Through the fields lay golden

Something wispered- "SNOW"

Leaves were green and stirring

Berries,luster-glossed

But beneath the warm feathers

Something cautioned- "FROST"

All the sagging orchards

Steamed With amber spice

But each wild breast stiffened

At rembered ice

Something told the wild geese

It was time to fly-

Summer sun was on their wings

Winter in their cry

Here is a link to the Forum Rules



-Thanks for wanting to follow the rules, and you shouldn't worry about getting banned, because the rules are not harsh, they are just to maintain a nice flowing manner of advice and information without fights and hurt feelings.

Writing in caps is reserved to indicate yelling, and of course proper grammar. Writing in all caps is annoying and usually only done by people coming to try and start fights.

No worries. If what you're doing isn't intentionally malicious, chances are you'll be warned of the destructiveness of your behavior before you're banned. And then you'll be able to correct it. At least that's how I understood it?
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace."

What we dont want to see is a full post purely of caps or mostly in caps for that matter.



so doing something like THIS is fine, and EVEN IF I WANTED TO GET MY POINT ACROSS LIKE THIS, is fine, just not much more than that.

Good point Sky.



The caps rule was made because caps, in net 'speak', means that you're yelling.
ATTENTION: Due to finanical difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off.

"They turn the lights down low,

In shadows hiding from the world,

Only coming out when it gets cold.

The seas part when they hit the floor,

The voices carry on and out the door

And everything you touch turns into gold

Like the angel you are you laugh creating a lightness in my chest,

Your eyes they penetrate me,

(Never cease to amaze me)

That's when I got up and left" Like The Angel - Rise Against

And it's rather annoying ;) Back when I was a newbie on the internet I typed all caps... I thought it was a cool trademark or something. Oh, how I've grown since. *shudders and pities those that had to deal with me*

Haha, I'm happy I wasn't one of them. I met a guy on MSN chat yesterday who decided to message me and wanted to cyber and everything he typed was in all capitals. I naturally blocked him A.) because he wanted to cyber and not chat and B.) he was using all caps and it gets quite annoying really fast. :)
