1 Using All Capitals on Sun Oct 28, 2012 3:54 pm

Simmer's Garden

It has come to the attention of the staff that just lately a lot of members have been using all capitals in their post's. This is against the forum rules as it is considered as shouting. The staff over a number of weeks have been going in and editing some of the posts to lower case letters but it is becoming very, tiresome for the staff to have to keep doing this all the time, and we cannot keep doing this, so please refrain from using all capitals in your posts. If you need to emphasise your words, please just make the words bolder, use italics, or make them just a little larger or different color than the rest of your post instead. From now on any posts we find that has all or any words that are all capitals, will be deleted off the forum. No longer will the staff continue to go in and edit the posts; we cannot keep up with it and and cannot continue to do this.

Thank You!

If in one of my legacy chapters a Sim is shouting can I use all caps, or do I have to use italics?

It would be the same as if you told a story out loud and when you came to a part where a character yells, you actually yell the line too, instead of clarifying that the character is yelling. Most proffessional writers use bold and/or italics to emphasize the parts where their characters yell. You could also use a different color emphasis. For example, I'll use all of them I mentioned: "Help!", she screamed at the top of her lungs.
There are different ways to emphasize without posting in all caps. I hope that helps you out.
