Sometimes I make mistakes too. If I'm writing out something and I'm really excited, I usually have to go back and proofread it

Thanks for posting!

Hi yingxi!

I think that common abbreviations are okay to use also. If most people know what it means, there's really no question about it. I always get texts from my friends that I have no clue what they're talking about. Sometimes I have to text back asking, "What?"
Yeah, common text 'speak' like lol, brb, g2g, lol, ect. I mean most people I text, they text back I have to waste a text to say "What does that mean?" It's a pain in the neck.

Same here I feel like I'm out of place when I do that.

Great reminder! I think that text speak is okay on Profile Messages, but no where else. Proper punctuation and capitalization should be used everywhere.

I spend alot of my time on WI reading stories, and there are many with 10+ chapters that are composed of senteces like this: 'i ran into the house and looked intently at u what could b going on where were u going'. They seem like great stories, but they're too hard to read, so I stop. If everyone would use proper grammer, punctuation, and capitalization, they would be so easy to read!

Thanks for the reminder!

I think that text speak is okay on profile messages also.

I have also seen some of WI's stories that some members have published, and some of them are just one big paragraph with no punctuation or grammar. They are hard to read, and if they were properly punctuated, I agree that more people would probably read them and comment.

Thank you for posting!
