    i like a good short post of a few sentences or a paragraph. i think a lot of you are going a little overboard with these long essays for posts. i don't think a lot of people even read them. i sure don't.

    shorten it up otherwise your point gets lost.

    I was really hoping that your post was about 5 paragraphs long, at least 10 sentences in each paragraph. ;)

    aww, is reading too hard for you? :( -comforts- maybe it's time to close the internets for awhile and pick up a book--or go back to high school and finally graduate?
     
  6. If I feel loquacious or verbose, then I'll meander my way through a monologue.

    If not, I will be succinct.


    In long, if I feel like making a long post, and that's what it takes to make my point, then I'll write it. If not, then I won't. You are always free NOT to read someone's post if the big words and amount of words start to scare ya. No one forces you to read anything here, so who are you to tell someone else how to write?

    I agree with Connor_Graham.

    noone is forcing you to read people's reply's or posts.

    if you think they're too long , just click them away and move on to the next subject.

    I'm a person who likes to write and read.
    English is not my native , so that adds a certain difficulty to it wich is quite nice.

    Some of us like to justify our statements with reasons and examples to actually have an intelligent discussion. I know that goes against the internet rule of making bold statements and brash accusations with nothing to back up your claims, but just humor us.

    Abridged version for those who don't like to read more than 20 characters at a time:
    omg lrn2read n00b
     
  9. I personaly don't mind longer posts as if its something I don't care to read I just move along. I will tell you what bugs me tho.. scrolling half way down a page to get past all the stickies.... seriously, how many is needed! Ok fine maybe leave them on the first/main page but to carry them on to every single page is rather annoying.. Just my opinion tho!

    Sometimes a lengthy post is required to make a point clear.
    Sometimes a short one will do.

    do you always have to make something into a fight? i am just giving advice to people who probably feel like no one is paying attention to them and can't figure out why.

    Nothing in his post looked like fighting words to me; he made very valid points.

    absolutely not. authors sometimes spend years writing and editing their work to perfect its quality and readability.

    for example i'm not gonna sit and read someone's hastily written post on why they think the UO economy is in shambles only to find out that they the whole thing is fundamentally flawed because they didn't know how particular game mechanism worked.

    right here he is trying to start an argument.

    he always does when he replies to me because he wants to tempt me into breaking the forums rules so he can tattle on me to a moderator. i swear he has them printed out and posted on the wall next to his computer.

    Yes, because, Gods forbid, someone should actually read in a medium for written communication. Was that short enough for you?

    Not to offend, but if you rarely read them, how do you know if they said anything or not?

    So essentially what you're saying is that you see a long post, you presume that someone doesn't know what they're talking about, and so you decide that it's not worth it to you to read.

    Which makes me wonder how you determine if anything is correctly written in a short post, given that there probably isn't enough substance in many cases to actually prove that one knows about the subject they are talking about.

    Or maybe, just maybe you're reading WAY too much into it. And, uh, if you're so easily tempted into breaking forum rules, you might, as someone so eloquently suggested (and I literally LOLed), want to close the internets for awhile.

    The only way to have someone goad you into doing something is for you to take the bait and run with it.

    No sense in putting the blame on others.

    I'm with you OP...

    I used to write a lot of proposals. I would make them really long and detailed until one day I was looking at other people's proposals and found myself just hitting the back button when a propoal was really long.

    Now I write up what I want to say and then look at it... if it's really long, I go back and trim the fat as best I can.

    actually yeah, if you put all that in one post i probably wouldn't have bothered.

    turns out it was useless anyway but at least you got me to read it.

    good post. this is what i was trying to get at.

    evidence that an array of small posts by various people amounts to a full brainstorm that yields a result.

    here's a great example of a post that very few people will read.

    it's real easy to tell that this post is not worth reading. check out the opening few words. then read the PARTS IN CAPS. you will no doubt skip it in normal context although now that i made an example of it people will be more inclined to read it.

  25. I'd explain to ya how to quote, or even how to utilize Paint, in order to make the most of a screen capture, but you'd probably see it as a tinfoil conspiracy to start a fight so I could report you to the moderators.





    Besisdes that, I ran out of wall space. :thumbsup:

    i know how to quote and use image editing software. that is what the post looked like on my screen. i'm sorry if you still have a 800x600 desktop space that is not my concern. besides the thread is almost over so who cares

    The image of the post you put up above... I wouldn't read that, not because of its length, but because of the length of its paragraphs (or lack of paragraphs altogether). I wouldn't even bother with the first few words, but that's just me. ;)

    Gee, that's funny, because I'm running at 1280x1024, and you still managed to cause me to use a horizontal scrollbar. It's just common courtesy to resize a picture so that it doesn't cause undue issues.

    Of course, before they added the menu to the side, this forum used to accurately let individual posts break the horizontal limit without taking every other post with it. Le shrug.

    But it is ironic that in a thread about post length you post a picture that's of gargantuan size. ;)

    well when a thread starts out like this:

    "I must beg your pardon for the creation of this post"

    it is probably gonna be bad.

    They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I'm not getting close enough to a beholder to find out. Much less spend time trying to figure out which eye they're talking about anyway.

    Suffice to say, this is the best thread in your universe. Which tells us a lot about your universe.

    Suffice to say, I won't be moving in.

    everyone lives in the same universe, so my universe is your universe too. so therefore it is the best thread in your universe, my universe, and the universe.

    Clearly, if you believe this to be the pinnacle of threads, you're very much in your own universe.

    And if we do happen to be sharing the same universe, can I please have my oxygen back. You just waste it.

    I dont read alot of longer posts unless the topic particulary intrests me, however i disagree with you sort of. If somone makes a long winded post its their problem and loss if your not interested in reading it.

    ...

    You can have a longer post and still have it reasonably readable... or you can write the infamous "wall of text". One will be useful... the other is a waste of time.
