  • Common acronyms...whay can't thread titles take 'em

    Any chance we might be able to someday use common acronyms for thread titles?

    LAPD, LASD, NYPD, FBI, TV, USMC, OIS, NFL and the like? Looks a little goofy when they come out as Lapd, Lasd, Nypd, Fbi, Tv, Usmc, Ois, and Nfl.
    "You're never fully dressed without a smile."

    Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

      Look around, I see many thread titles that have CAPs when posters put in acronyms. Look at the New York thread, see how many times NYPD is in CAPS in a thread title.

        I'm going to double POST to MAKE a POINT.

        If you write something totally in all capital letters, it will make it lowercase. However, if you COMBINE some CAPITAL with some lowercase THERE is no PROBLEM

        As far as I KNOW, same thing applies for THREAD titles


        (if it wasn't obvious, the capitalization within this post was for demonstrational purposes)

          This Was Attempted To Be Written In All Capital Letters. It Did Not Work.

            THIS IS A DEMONSTRATION OF THE CAPABILITY TO USE ALL UPPERCASE CHARACTERS PROVIDED THAT AT LEAST ONE LOWERCASE CHARACTER IS IN THE CHARACTER STRING. IF NO LOWERCASE CHARACTERS ARE IN THE CHARACTER STRING, THE vBULLETIN SOFTWARE SUBSTITUTES CAPITALIZATION OF THE FIRST LETTER OF EACH WORD, WITH THE REMAINDER OF EACH WORD IN LOWERCASE. YOU HAVE TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE LOWERCASE CHARACTER IF YOU WANT TO YELL AT PEOPLE IN ALL CAPS.

              So that's why I sometimes see newbies capitalizing the first letter of each and every freaking word! I'd wondered about that.

                It's very easy to accidentally hit the "Caps Lock" key when you're trying to hit the left "Shift" key.
