Default Some things I'd like to discuss....

Hi there, and thanks for clicking! This is sort of a 2 part thing- and I've been thinking about it while I was on break. I know that there are a lot of opinions on these topics, so please feel free to post.

I'm sure that a lot of your DCTers at the Open Mike know that just recently, the topic for the DCT was respect. COWS4YOU made that DCT, and I loved the topic. Usually the rating for DCT's is 5 star. However, this one was a 4 star and close to a 3 when I saw it. I was shocked at this. Why in the world would people rate it down just because the topic was about respect? There have been arguments there, I know, and in my opinion, that topic was a nice change. I know a lot of you felt that way too, but there are always some "sour apples" out of the bunch.

Also, I'd also like to comment on making an effort. Lately, my dad showed me a business e-mail of some sort to show me what not to do. I was shocked at what it looked like. Instead of "you" the person put "u" and that sort of thing. It wasn't too extreme, but I was shocked that a business person would do that sort of thing. I always thought that when doing business or something like that, people would do their best in grammar/punctuation/spelling. (I'm not saying that adults should always use proper grammar/punctuation/spelling, this was just an example of effort) So, that just brings me to the topic of making an effort. Here, it could mean making an effort when posting- or just going out of your way to brighten up someone's day.

Thanks for reading, and as always (lol) post your opinions/comments/suggestions!

I love the DCT too, but i never noticed that! I don't know either why some people would do that! That just seems kind of unrespectful!

Yeah, i barley every use the "u" and "ur" "k", they just seem not.. proper! I try my best to use all the right punctuation too. If i miss-spell something, usually it's not on purpose.
Great point! Rep!

This is a great thread.

Whenever I chat on the DCT there are always nice people, but it is still nice to talk about Respect. It's not cool when people rate a thread down just to be funny.

Thanks for pointing this out! Rep!

Yes, EXACTLY my point!

Same here- I only use it for texting, because there's a limited amount of space you can use. But here, there's almost no limit.

Thanks so much for the nice post!

Thanks, webkinz!

I agree with you 100%. I don't get why people just rate down threads just to make the rating go down either

It could be one of these;

They don't care about votes.
They don't like the topic.
They could of hit the wrong circle.
They could want the WI$ for voting, and not care what they vote.

I agree, that topic was a good idea..it was 'round the time there was the whole mess of DCT problems.


On your second topic..I personally dislike it when people can't use the whole word. Not like LOL and g2g and brb, but u and ur and pls and ppl. One example I like to use on this is: I think something like "Sorry everyone, I've g2g." is acceptable and have used it myself, but "srry evry1 i g2g"..rather annoys me.
Especially surprises me when people I know to be adults use it..aren't they supposed to be role-models for us innocent and sweet little children?

Remember, we have spelling and grammar for a reason, a good reason.

'Course, if it's like a one-time thing, everyone has spelling and capitilization and grammar errors every once in a while, it's best to leave it alone.

Effort it really important-yes, it looks good when applying for GT/GG-but also, it makes people..look up to you, I think. If you took two people who answered the same question, and one used Impact font bolded bright green(try doing this and hitting "preview"-it's incomprehensible), chat speak(or, as they'd probably say it, chatspeek), and a short, 4 word answer, and the other used readable text and good grammar/spelling/etc. with a nice good-sized explanation and maybe some pictures, who would, if you were the thread creator, give rep to? Even if they gave essentially the same answer to your question.

Sorry for the long post..but.."u" and "ur" and "k" and "i" really annoys me. Especially if it's like this.

Yeah, number 2 was my point But the 1st, third, and fourth wouldn't really "count" in this situation, because then all the other DCT thread would have been rated down

That's true. I usally don't go over there, so I wouldn't know what the votes are normaly. But, I think it is because they don't like the topic.
