That's good, because that means you can actually take the time to spell.
Many people ignore posts that are poorly written. It is sort of like the equivalent between seeing a clean cut person on the street, and a shabby homeless person. When you type a post with poor spelling, poor grammar, and no thought out sentence structure, you give the impression that you are either very young or very stupid.
It is the general vibe that is given off, and most users will agree with me.
The other thing is that it is just a matter of common decency. If I take the time to write out my posts, and make sure they are coherent so that they can be understood, then you must show me the same respect. Don't type out your posts quickly, even if you are excited, etc. Take the time to read over your posts (use the "preview" button; it's what its there for), and if you generally struggle with spelling (There is poor spelling, which is generally alleviated by grade 7, and then there is just leaving out letters, which is significantly worse), parse it in a word processor.
For example, I especially asked you to watch your spelling so that it was easier to understand you, and I was greeted with this post:
Actualy its not dslexia, its just i type realy fast, and i could never speel anyway!
Now, technically there isn't much wrong with this post, compared to much of your others. But in correct English, it would look like:
Actually, it's not dyslexia, it's just that I type really fast, and I could never spell anyway!
It is minor things, such as proper punctuation, putting the right amount of letters in, capitalising I's. We aren't in grade 3 here, and the only means of communication we have is via text. You wouldn't talk to someone in a drunken slur if you were trying to get across your gameplay ideas (atleast, you wouldn't be listened too), so please take the time and effort to read over your posts, and make sure they are legible. And I'm not saying perfect, I regularly make typos in my posts (I'll often go back and edit them, but that's just me), just far more readible than they have been.
And I don't mean to be offensive, Zoombie, I was just pointing it out, because I know that you have interesting ideas, but many people on this forum will simply ignore you because of the way you come across.
... And this post hasn't just been targetted at Zoombie; there are a number of people across this forum who are unable to communicate effectively. I shouldn't have to decipher any posts so that I can continue the conversation.
