Default Just a suggestion for WI about punctuation marks. xD

Hi, i would just like to make a suggestion...
Some people like to use excessive punctuation marks..
i.e.

hi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Which is not necessary & sometimes stretches out the page.

I would just like to suggest trying to shorten it up to about 3 or somethingg...
even one exclamation point can show that you're excited. xD

I think that is a great idea. I think that sometimes, people do that to have at least ten letters, but I think that people should take the time to make quality posts.

Very good point. It is also against the rules to use excessive punctuation marks to make your post 10 letters long. You should be able to find at least a sentence worth of something worthwhile to post

I agree. It bugs me to see a post that says "Hm,that one!!!!!!!!!!!!" Instead of one that says "Hm,that one!" Or "What?????" Instead of "What?"
Great thread!

Default Re: Just a suggestion for WI about punctuation marks. xD

I agree 100%. If I'm really excited, I just use 2 or 3 exclamation points, or one. It's okay to do "Yay, I'm going to Iowa!!!" but not "Yay, I'm going to Iowa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
People just need to add more quality to their posts, not puncuation marks!
(:

I agree that people shouldn't use excess punctuation marks. I try not to go overboard, but sometimes I can get a little excited lol. I think three exclamation points is acceptable lol ;]

You make an excellent point. Excessive punctuation is spamming; if people are excited, they should use words to express their feelings.

I totally agree with you, gripper. One or two exclamation points is definitely good enough to show excitement.
