I may leave a stale taste in your mouth, but I feel this is something I must share. I have looked all over the Internet for a Wii Forum that had a nice look, a big community, and so forth. What kills me is when I read some of the threads/replies. Do some people not think before they post? Are they too eager to add to their post-count that they neglect punctuation, grammar, and normal speech? I can't understand half of the stuff said on the forums because they read like this: "yeah i would go with SMG its better and is going to be the best game ever so its ur money man don say i didnt tell you lol." That was just a sample of a run-on sentence with no punctuation. Notice the text-style writing. I may get banned from this forum, but please think and write normally.
Thanks for the support. I understand that today's youth have grown up with text-style writing, but that doesn't mean we have to throw the basic rules and understandings of our language out the door. I'm not bashing the young crowd. Heck, I'm 23. I'm not that old. However, a lot of the posters here are young and probably in school. Do what's right for society and the sake of this forum and write so that we can understand what is being said.
I hear what you're saying!
To be honest (tbh) I generally combine both types of typing. Sometimes i cant be bothered to write properly, but generally only use the shorthand that I expect most people to understand.
I stay away from the likes of SMG SSBB etc etc as it isn't obvious to everyone what I'm talking about..Often i am included in that!
I'm all for shorthand, as long as it's obvious what is being said (obviously this will be different for each person though).
You will always get the "ZOMG!!! LMFAO u n00b" type people though, whatever forum you go to.
That said, this forum is a great resource and I don't come across threads and psots that are too bad really.
You will enjoy being a part of the community!!
Pointless thread tbh, do you really think you'll change the spelling and grammar habits of others?
The answer is no, although you're correct in what you say it won't apply to other people, so just leave it out.
so I shouldn't be posting here because I am too lazy to punctuate and spell correctly? I'll at least try to help people by replying with what I know. I am typing from my phone so it automatically cap's the I's and adds apostrophes lol. what's wrong with incorrect grammar? this isn't school, it's a gaming forum
