  • People who use fullstops/periods at the end of their sentences

    Those (except mods or staff) who use fullstops/periods at the end of their sentences when they aren't required to (like daily Discord chatting etc) are really cringy instead of formal, what's the point of being formal online when you aren't required to or if you don't even like using proper punctuation??

    It just makes my hair stand

        It depends on context though, like I prefer to properly-punctuated my sentences while I post on the Forums, but I'm usually more casual on Discord.

          You know it's really not that big of a deal.. I think you'll come to find it's a waste of time being annoyed by everyone's little quirks.

          I've seen 3 threads like this in the past few days and in my opinion it's just so overly negative. What's wrong with using periods exactly?

            sometimes happens by reflex... I either don't put it or I put it and don't realize it...

            Sometimes my phone just puts it by itself too, I think...

            Also I have an addiction to writing triple dots...

              Sometimes i think that the players who don't use punctuation haven't learned it yet.
              It's always a good idea to use punctuation. Otherwise you might even forget to use them in your school projects.

                  Personally it just depends on the situation and on my mood.
                  Like in games I won't ever use ponctuation stuff or even on discord or instagram or Whatsapp chat. But for example on my GT's posts captions I 99% of the times use ponctuation cause it's a bit more formal but if it's a funny post I won't use it.

                  Sometimes i just use ponctuation to add feelings to my sentences like "ok." "Bye." Ok byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrerreeplswlsmepoorwwww wweeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

                    People who use punctuation marks seem to be more intelligent. They tell the reader where to pause, breathe, raise their voice, change their voice, etc. Those little marks are powerful. They aren't to be ignored.

                    Nobody cares about your in-game accomplishments so don't put them here.

                      i use punctuations (mostly comma) cuz it helps easily getting the context when i sent something, a cool example is the Time to eat Grandma sentence but since this is a thread all about the period, let me end this post with a period cuz im funny.

                        It felt wrong whenever making a post or anything in general without using a period.

                        Same as DDPBG, it just happens to be a reflex or habit.

                            Periods/full stops are actually incredibly important for communicating ideas. Not only is typing properly habitual, but it communicates a segmentation of ideas and removes nebulosity caused by things like dangling participles (which are very common among forum users). This clarity is good for readers and makes it a lot easier to digest.

                              I use fullstops in my forum posts because these are the forums, serious discussions take place here, you've got to be formal (exception: jokes & non-serious discussions).

                              Of course, in Discord chat, there's absolutely no need for fullstops or any other sort of formality, unless it's serious or just needed in a sentence. Let's not also forget the importance of fullstops, they might be needed even in some stupid Discord chat between you and a that one dumb friend.
