Do an impression of yourself!

In this thread we realise how bad our posting habits are, like, for example, I use commas way, way too much.

Also I am terrified of making a paragraph. Instead I have to whack that enter key twice and carry on from there. I feel like I’ve written too much at once if it goes on to a second line in the post box. Gross, it’s happened right now.

What are your quirks? When did they begin? Do you use them everywhere or are you putting on an accent to look cool at the PA forums?

How do some of you start your sentences without a capital letter? Do you have to go out of your way to do that or are you posting via a steampunk typewriter that doesn’t automatically capitalise the first word?

At this point in a post a usually @ Peas.

    also you don't use commas too much, the writing style for forum posts is more conversational and the extra commas can help convey a cadence of speech better imo

    If I could just post something without just filling it full of "just" and also other pointless words like also just so I could think for a second while I'm typing also just to get my point about although it's just not necessary also my sentences just run on.

    Like what even is a line break for?

    I feel like if paragraphs made sense they wouldn't read so formally and non conversational.

    In conclusion my positing style is perfect...

    Except when I am nervous and start to be too verbose and over explain myself to the point where I repeat myself. I don't like repeating myself it makes me more anxious so I start doing it more like a weird cycle.

    It’s true. I do talk very slowly in real life, with regular pauses, as if I am thinking very deeply about the topic at hand.

    It’s why I have struggled my whole life with being considered competent by old and young alike.

    Every day I am handed something I don’t know the name or purpose of, turn around, and then asked what it is and should be used for by someone beaming at me pleasantly.

    It depends on the board/thread

    I’m very whiny and increasingly despondent in D&D politics

    In SE threads I don’t use punctuation and have subconsciously and very poorly emulated Hobnail’s style (without the humor or wit or earthy charm)

    In sports threads I’m just embarrassingly wrong about everything...in pro sports threads, Butters usually is the first to call me on it, while it’s ebum getting me in the college threads

    Nothing but poop stories in the [kids] thread...literal drive-by shitposting

    I have an accent to my posts that no one would ever hear from me in real life because social anxiety sucks.

    I have no goddamn idea what accent it's supposed to be when I'm butchering the messages with my own wordisms throughout but every now and then something clear and concise comes through that isn't a result of crossed mental wires.

    If you're having trouble perceiving yourself from an outside perspective, I recommend Naikan: Gratitude, Grace, and the Japanese Art of Self-Reflection by Gregg Kretch. It's available through Hoopla, so you can probably get the ebook for free from your local library right now!

    I also find it interesting, genuinely, that my username means nothing. It pertains to nothing in my life now or in the past. Yet, I am, at least for brief periods of my day, Endless_Serpents.

    The underscore is only there because I didn’t realise you could have a username that just has a space in it.

    I use ellipses too much, am too quick to post a grumpy negative comment over a positive one, and have a terrible memory so I probably repeat myself a lot on certain topics.

    I use dots a .... lot

    only four at a time

    also, when I heat things in the microwave, I have to set the timer to a number with an even square root. every time I do it I get annoyed with myself and yet I know I will do it again.

    I use to be the guy who did all the misspelling all the time. Thanks to just...getting less dyslexic, and spellcheck.

    Now I just am the old guy who has been here forever and shows up to make comments and everyone just sort of glosses over.

    I say "like" like, a lot

    also I type

    with spaces instead of periods because that's how I separate sentences.

    I feel like just making paragraphs makes it way too busy.

    another thing I do is get like, way personal with my posts because I talk about upsetting/sad stuff in real life all the time why wouldn't I do it to people I don't even really know.
