Default How To Make Neat and Easy to Read Posts!

First, I would like you to check out this guide made by dotdotduck --> HERE
Anyways, sometimes, posts can get very annoying and hard to read.
I will cover some stuff covered in DDD's guide, and some stuff uncovered.

Also: Please note that I am not FORCING you to follow these , but they are here, just to suggest.

Quick Review


If you read DDD's Guide, you should know that bright colors are annoying and hard to read.
(color, color, color, color, color, Etc.) They are mostly colors near the bottom!

Also, try to spell all words correctly, quote, and be aware of some simple mistakes (to, too, two).

Lastly, it's nice to type in whole, correct sentences. It makes the process of post-reading clear, easy, and fun!

Try to Avoid...


1: Try not to use excessive "large" or "small" writing. This can be pretty annoying for people trying to read posts, especially on smaller devices. Try to keep it size 2, maybe 3.

2: Don't use MILLIONS of smileys. I mean like, don't put a smiley after every word you type, and so on. If kind of gets distracting and hard to read.

3: Don't put "fluff" in your posts! When you are responding to something, making a helpful post, it is best not to add "fluff" at the end.

PS: I LOVE DOGS xD HI EVERYONE
dofojsfsdiojfasd WI ROCKS!


4: Don't use excessive spoilers in some posts (other posts, like GEs, guides, etc are great to use spoilers in!) If you use excessive spoilers, it will get get tiring to click through everything, and some people may even just give up and skip your post...

so, how is it going?

Guess what?
Spoiler: show
I don't know!


5: Try to avoid excessive UNDERLINING. When there is excessive underlining, it kind of makes it hard to read!
Originally Posted by Underlines
So, I am wondering, how is everyone doing? I am doing great and I am excited for new years. Aren't you pretty excited!?! I think I am going to a party on January 1st... See... This whole quote is an example. Kind of annoying, correct?


6: Avoid EXCESSIVE CAPS. I think this may even be a guideline under the WI rules. It isn't fun to read an all CAPS post, and it is even considered yelling.
Originally Posted by CAPS
HMM, HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY? I AM DOING WONDERFUL ACTUALLY. SEE , A PERFECT EXAMPLE. IT IS NOT PLEASING TO READ ALL CAPS.

7: Avoid using numbers for letters. Self explanatory.. .

8: Don't Capitalize the first word in every sentence. It makes it hard to read.

Originally Posted by Cap Every Word
Hello Everyone. I Think That WI Did A Good Job Adding The WIKI. It Makes Everything Easier To Read And Organizes Well. I Also Think That The WIGEV Is In An Easier Place.

9: Don't use repeating letters.

~TARSKY781 9: Don't use excessive punctuation. You may be excited, confused, or showing a lot of emotion, but a lot of Punctuation will get confusing for the others when they are reading about your emotions.
Originally Posted by Punctuation

~SHOOTING STAR 10: Avoid excessive text. A lot of people don't text on here, or they don't know what the abbreviations are for it.
Originally Posted by Txt Tlk
Some abbreviations... BRB::TY::TTFN:: etc...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That basically wraps things up. Remember to try to keep WI posts easy to read!

Do not forget to add yellow to the color thing. I find it difficult to read to. You made a fantastic guide and it is really appreciated. Thank you.
