Default Reminder: make sure your posts are readable!

Hi, thanks for reading. I just wanted to remind everyone to make sure your posts are readable. This includes three things as far as I'm concerned.
First of all, small fonts. Font size 1 is okay, but sometimes its barely readable, especially when it's written in light colors. Light colors such as light pink, peach, light green, light blue, light pink, etc, are not readable. Stay away from pastels so people don't have to highlight your post to be able to read it. And one last thing, is to be careful of spelling. A few errors and some computer shorthand is okay, but this is not: "wen is da new cahptre off ur sotri comin" a good edit of this sentance would be, "when is da new chapter of ur story coming?" You still have some "texting language" but people aren't struggling to read your sentance. Punctuation helps, too.
Anyway, thanks for listening, and I hope this helps!

- Nadine [:

Some people always put really light colors in their threads. I have to squint at the words that are in light colors. Also sometimes people don't spell some words which annoys me!

Yes, that does annoy me too! Some people use computer shorthand to the point where it's unreadable, and you have to ask them what they said because they have SO many errors. That's extremely irritating.

Default Re: Reminder: make sure your posts are readable!

I agree,and rep if I can give you any!

I don't mind a mistake like "Youa re" instead of "You are." But a post like this "Lyk omg wre r u????!?!?! wanna go shpping 2nite?" Is inexcusable. I'm okay with a few grammatical errors,and punctuational (Is that even a word? lol. xD) errors,but making your entire post 'lyk dis' makes it hard to read. Great thread!

Exactly. People do make mistakes, but if they're just typing with so much shorthand, gramtical, punctuational (don't know if it's a word but whatever! xD), and spelling errors, it's unreadable and annoying.

Yes, exactly. I couldn't even tell what that said, I had to look at the translation beneath it. I've acctually seen spelling that bad, and it bugs me alot. I'm like, "What did you say?" and they have to repeat it and they act all annoyed, like I should be able to read their horrifically bad spelling.
