Caps In Totpic Titles

Recommended Posts

It seems like a feature of the new boards is that FSX is forced to Fsx (for example) in topic titles. Is there any way to get FSX (caps) in the title?scott s..

We have set the forums to not allow all caps in the topics. Yes, in some instances, as in your example, it takes away from the title, but it also prevents the all CAPS annoying habit of some to head all their messages that way. The trade off is better in our opinion.

Tom, I'd really like to ask you guys to reconsider this - it is stopping ANY series of sequential capital letters, not just titles that are all in caps.We cannot spell our name, or the name of the MD-11 correctly in our topic titles - they're all getting changed to "Pmdg" and "Md-11" - FSX gets changed to "Fsx" and FS9 to "Fs9" too among other common terms like MCP, FMC, etc... It looks awful and is far more distracting than the occasional all caps post.

All right, we will change that later today.

And I am already regretting that we changed. Here is why we had put the Caps control switch on:

There is absolutely no need for this. To me it screams out; "my message is more important than yours". If we see more of this, we'll turn back on the Caps block and folks will have to live with it.
