Take time to Read over your Posts
 
I have seen many posts that are VERY difficult to read, because people do not take the time to go back and add periods, check spelling, etc!

It makes it hard to read and follow, and is kind of annoying!

You don't get prizes for how fast you type, or how fast you post, so taking an extra few seconds to proof read won't hurt. :)


If you hit post, and realize you have an error, it would be great if you could edit it and fix it. :)


Thanks so much for viewing!

Very good point! Misspelled words and missing punctuation make some threads very hard to read and understand. You should ALWAYS proofread your work before submitting it. I always try to read mine over to make sure it sounds good. After all, more people will want to read something that is well written, than something that isn't. You make a very good point here! :) [rep]

I agree. If I make a mistake and I notice it, I'll always go back and edit it. It's confusing to read something with many grammatical errors. Rep.

Very good point! I go on WI through Safari Web Browser, and it underlines the words spelled wrong. If I see a word spelled wrong and I'm not sure how to spell it, I just go to dictionary.com. It gives spelling suggestions which is really helpful.

It is also really hard to read posts in colors like THIS.

Thanks for making everyone realize how much spelling and grammar are important!

Great reminder! It sometimes takes me five minutes just to read certain posts because the poster is rambling on with run-on sentences. Thanks for the reminder :)

Thanks for bringing this up! I totally agree with you. Sometimes people just rush to post before other people and mispell things!
