View Full Version : nixing all caps?
Hey, I just noticed that when I post in ALL CAPS, it doesn't show up all caps.
Feature or bug?
edit: No, it didn't! But over in "Digital Hub", I typed Minneapolis all caps, and it was switched to the proper noun (and nicey-nice Internet) version.
interesting. I TRIED A COUPLE OF THINGS, previewing them to see how they'd fly. SOMETIMES, CAPPED words become FIRST LETTER capped, THE rest remaining MINISCULE. but NOW, ALL my CAPPED wordS aRE survIVING. i DON't KNOw WHAt's GOING on. try doing just "THIS IS A TEST", and hit preview. when i tried it became "This Is A Test"
It's called "prevent shouting". We used the same thing at the old AppleInsider.com, but it appears that the algorithm used in vB3 is a bit smarter in general than the one used in the older vB2 that the dotcom uses.
OK, so my post actually generated useful discussion. What an alarming suprise!
Next question: Why does the "delete this message" dialog/window come up only sometimes when I edit a previous post?
Edit: Whoops, I'm an idiot :(
Doesn't matter anyway, you can't delete posts, even your own.Stop spreading things you don't know, will you? :p
Why does the "delete this message" dialog/window come up only sometimes when I edit a previous post?Because you can hide that part with this button: http://forums.appleinsider.org/images/buttons/collapse_tcat.gif Maybe that happened here - :)
I stand corrected. I guess you can delete your own posts on .org.
Sorry for speaking up before testing, I just assumed that the behavior would be similar to .com's in that you can not delete even your own posts.

Members can actually *hide* their own posts. They are not deleted from the database. Moderators and administrators can still see the posts marked for deletion.
Should this privilege be abused, it's easy to toggle off. For now, though, it's worth leaving on just to see how members handle it.
