Actually, it IS against the rules to write in all caps. It is rude.

The CyberNetiquette is what you all are talking about. Using all caps, is a form of yelling and should not be used, especially on sites like this one.

Maybe instead of using all caps, try using a larger font. It really does appear as if you are yelling.. LOL

Hi PESKY PIXIE! You have a very good reason for using all caps, but since it's agaist the conventions, maybe you could put the reason in your siggie, "ALL CAPS FOR MEDICAL REASON" or "ALL CAPS BECAUSE DYSLEXIC" or something like that. That way, people will stop asking you not to shout . I bet you're tired of explaining it each time!

I hate to call you on this one, Livi, but all caps is NOT in the rules on WI. I do have to agree with you though, I think it is a little out of line to use all caps also.

I agree, but if it is a happy/exciting/cheerful post, it could be okay. Here are some examples of what I think are fine.

WOW!! I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU! GOOD LUCK!

Default Re: Writing in all CAPS

there actually are chat rooms that will kick u out for writing in all caps bc it is supposed to mean yelling, but there are alot of kids on here that do it accidently, so it doesnt bother me on here usually bc it doesnt mean they are yelling. if they do it with saying something mean that means they probably mean it as yelling then id report it.

yes, I agree. like pianolover said, it did state that they'd rather not have you post in all CAPS. I think it's ok (if you wanted to show emphasis, I guess) but I think it does feel like you're getting yelled at. thank you for bringing this up.

I am awful with the caps. All of my passwords ar ein caps so I forget to turn it off. But usaully the filter catches it for me. I have never yelled at anyone here,if I use caps it is usually for excitement. If I have ever scared any one, I apologize!!!
