WELL SOME PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF have bad eyes and can read larger type and also we can read what we type easier in caps. i think most of us on the boards are smart enough to know if someone is shouting at them in anger, because its the words and the context, not the size of them................... also, sometimes people might be typing and not realize they are in caps and not want to typeover. i think a lot of leeway can be given since we are not f2f. its a good topic to discuss so thanks for bringing it up!

I like Basmat's bold type in black. I don't like to see all caps, and have a very hard time reading the messages in the light colors, especially yellow.

First, I am older and that alone has an impact on my ability to see and read. PLus, last year I had 4 surgeries on my eyes that were not exactly successful and have had an large impact on my ability to read stuff. I appreciate those who take the time to make their posts readable-either larger, more bold, or if necessary, in all caps. . I have a real problem with those who use a very tiny font and those who use a blue on blue font or a white font to post their messages. I agree with this poster. Not everyone has the eyes to be able to read anything except what is made in a readable form. If it is all caps, that is great so I can participate. I do understand in many formats, using caps is consdiered yelling but I don't see it that way. I see it-thankfully-as giving me the ability to participate.

YOU KNOW, i think maybe if people can think about not having a healthy body in all aspects then maybe it would be easier to 'put up with' the caps or the 'shouting' if it is clear the person is not shouting. jsut a thought. i know sometimes it is hard for a younger person or a healthy person to envision what it may be like to not have a body part work so easy................. so maybe that may be why someone is typing a certain way. its not always what it appears, because we are using a computer and cannot see each other. its not a big deal on a forum like this. we rarely fight about anything............... its webkinz for gosh sakes!

Although writing in all caps can be seen as rude, I really hate the colored type more. People don't realize that sometimes readers can be colored blind or just have problems reading. I see type all the time on here that I just cannot read because of the color. Some colors are OK--I love purple but some are really just plain annoying like the aqua one.

Writing in all CAPS can come off rude. It seems like yelling, and I know I really don't like it, and I'm sure most others don't. To make everything nicer, let's all write in lowercase, and capitalize when neccasary.

If you have problems seeing text because of your vision, they have special programs and things for your computer that can magnify everything. A friend of mine is blind with partial vision in her periphial and has it. It really helps her. But you can just use a larger font without it being caps. Caps is supposed to mean talking louder, whether it is an excited yell or angry yelling, but that is the overall meaning of caps in chat rooms.

I like beachbumkinz's type. If you have bad eyes, make it a larger, not in caps. I hate it when people use light colors and smaller than normal size. The computer stains my eyes enough. (I am a pretteen and I have AWFUL distance vision.) BTW, sometimes it show emotion like "WOW! That is SO COOL!"
