Smile Use your common sense! Be careful how you type.

We all know how to be nice:

How are you doing?

Are you having a nice day?

But we also know how to be rude:

Why isn't my order finished at your shop yet?!

I think that everyone on here is nice for the most part but, I noticed that sometimes, people

type in caps lock on accident. My own personal experience:

I ASKED FOR A MINIFESTO AT YOUR SHOP.

Sounds mean right? I replied:

Look, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to keep you waiting. I wasn't allowed on the computer last night.

Your order is ready at my shop.

I felt bad so I typed again:

Sorry if I sounded rude earlier. I've just had a long day.

They typed back:

No, it was me who sounded rude. I forgot to turn off the capslock. Sorry if you are mad at me.

Just goes to show how much of a different reputation your going to get by typing in caps lock.

Just be careful how you word things and how you type them! Also, make sure you use

punctuation! It makes you sound much more mature and you seem easier to understand. I

would also suggest that you don't use text speak. It's hard to understand. Zoopalz suggests

that you should also not use too many abbreviations. Sometimes you don't understand what

they mean. If you are newer to this site and need some help with an abbreviation, click on the

I totally agree! Capslock, doesn't make you feel all warm and fuzzy, It makes you feel like someone is yelling at you Rep!!

Thanks so much! Yeah, caps lock makes me really nervous. I don't know what it it about me but when people type in caps lock, I start like, freaking out for some reason. Especially when it's an edit in a post or something.

Totally!! It doesn't make you feel like "Wow, I'm 'good'", or whatever...xD But it makes you feel like someone's mad, and's yelling at you. :[ No one likes that, I think...

Default Re: Use your common sense! Be careful how you type.

Totally true! And we have enough trouble as it is telling whether or not something is meant to be nice or mean, because we honestly don't know what the person means, sometimes even when they talk outloud. I try to avoid using capslock, because I know I'll forget to fix it later. Instead, I just use shift for every letter, but only when I'm really excited.

Maybe, somewhere on WI, like before you start to type your post, it should notify you if your capslock is still on. It would solve a lot of issues. Good point, and have a tremendously fun day!

i agrre withthe caps lock thing but i dont think it is totally necesary to use puncuation. i always do, but i dont really do on purpose. i will admit that it is probably easier to type w/o it. there is really no rule that says that u have to, so i cant judge people by if they do or not.

I know. It just makes it easier to understand. Like, which is easier?
joe said hi lizzie are you having a nice day its very sunny outside
Or
Joe said,"Hi Lizzie! Are you having a nice day? It's very sunny outside!"
I think the second one makes more sense. Just my opinion.
