    why do Capital Letters turn into lower case letter when posted?

    In the "Games" when I type Capital letters why does it turn into lower case letters when posted. This only happens on certain letters. What am I doing wrong?

    Is your "Caps Lock" on? Usually your computer will remind you if it is on.

    If you type words in all caps, which is considered shouting, the forum will change your post to first-letter-capitalization or all lowercase.

    This may not work well on word games though. If you can be more specific - what exactly did you type, I will reevaluate the rules.

    Thanks Matrix for answering my post. I know about the all caps. to mean shouting. Don't know what "Falcon" was referring to.The main place that it occurs for me is in the game "Guess the Tune". I will post a letter in a capital and it will post as lower case. Tis nothing urgent but was just curious as to why this was happening.

    Citygirl, I just checked out that thread and typed the following in the Games forum, when I looked at the preview it showed exactly as it is here, just the way I typed it. At first I wondered if it had something to do with the underscore lines in that game, but it doesn't seem to affect it in my typing. So I'm sorry, but I can't figure out why this happens to you. I did notice that some of your letter requests were in capitals and some in small letters, so I imagine some of your capitals are showing correctly?

    Thanks for responding Seabreeze. Like I said it is not urgent nor does it happen all the time. Just wondered if I was doing something wrong.

    Falcon.

    I do think I owe you an apology about the yelling bit. I'm not all that proficient about this computer business and did not realize the bold print was the same thing as yelling. I am aware that you were just trying to help.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
