Default The use of Text Speech on the forum

Hello!

Just a word of warning (actually a plea!) about the use of text speech on the forum.

I understand that text speech is 'the new way' of communicating on mobile phones, but please remember that this is a forum, which we use to discuss and talk about Big Brother.

With the growth of new members recently, there has been extended use of text speech being used.

It is hard, and sometimes annoying to try and translate long messages of text speech - so I'm now asking that everyone starts using proper English.
It will make reading forum messages much easier, and create a better flow in the community.

I would appreciate if those members would take the above into consideration, not only for the board's appearance, but for other users too.

Thanks,

- Mark

I'm bumping this to remind everyone - please don't use text speak in posts.

Also please don't post all in capital letters, its regarded as shouting and is difficult to read.

Could all new members PLEASE read Mark's post at the start of this thread, and try and keep 'text speak' to a minimum.

A lot of us find it very difficult to understand.

Thanks a lot.

I have noticed an increased use of text speech over the last week both in posts and in thread titles. Can I remind all users that text speech isn't allowed on TiBB and your posts and threads could be deleted and for repeated offenses you could receive a warning.
