I have a suggestion you might consider. Can you install an automatic function to prevent "ALL CAPS HEADLINES!!!!" from happening.
Granted it, it might be a lot to ask for, but thought I would throw it out there.
If not, oh well. No problem. Let's move on.
If so, that would be great.
Thank you for your time.
There is actually a text transform property in CSS that will do it.
But people who make their headings all uppercase don't have much worthwhile to say in their threads anyway, so if I see such a thread title like that I know to avoid it.
That appears to be a property that will capitalize everything, not the reverse...
There is also one which uncapatlizes words, but I can't remember what it is exactly.
Actually, it will capitalize the first character of each word in uppercase. Unfortunately, it will only do it to sentences which are already in all lower case.
Don't you think that if there was a way to prevent typing in all caps, it would be a feature active across the entire world-wide Internet already?
As annoying as it is I would rather have all caps than yet another regulation that is automatically enforced.
The suggestion was made to prevent people from forming "SCREAMING TITLES!!!!" and the fact that I wanted to get other people's thoughts about it.
I do think it's a good suggestion. But it does allow me to assess a person before I even enter their thread. If they have to scream to get attention then generally what they have to say in their thread isn't worth reading.
At a Digg-like site I own people can submit lenses. At least once a day I go through the submissions and any with ALL CAPS TITLES I delete. People are warned on the submission page that it's not allowed. It's funny that they don't actually heed the caution.

It can be done in Excel. On mouse hover over a cell or tapping, a thumbnail would expand into a full image.

When we disable the further-comments-posting, the above message displays.Instead of:"This feature has been turned off by the author."How about:"This feature has been temporarily turned off by the author."The second message is subtly less harsh. And subliminally encourages the...

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to post a link using this url ....." or "Join Hubpages by clicking...
