    Yeah, this forums corrects "all caps" posts... ostensibly to prevent "shouting."

    It only happens when the entire post is constructed in all caps, though. That's the key.

    ^^ I typed that in all caps; the forum reformatted it.




    I know it has certainly has prevented me from submitting quick posts like this before:

    It turns that into
    ...which doesn't look right to me.

    edit: looks like they fixed the edit post workaround. Used to be if your all caps post got corrected away you could edit post and change it back. But that doesn't work now.

    It appears the presence of lowercase has an influence on the behavior.

    Um, yeah.

    Bears repeating:


    Hopefully you're convinced now that you've done your "tests" now, though. :p

    I mostly skip over your posts. I'm not completely convinced of your self-described SME status :D
