All Caps = Yelling or to emphasize a word

Yes, it is usually yelling, but I did it for some time due to carpel tunnel and it caused less pain.

ALL CAPS=YELLING

Yeah - I cut slack a lot depending on the user - esp. the elderly....heck I'm just happy they are here and participating emoticon

ALL CAPS=YELLING

I'm not sure this is 100% true. I think for elderly people they have a hard time seeing the letters thy are typing if it's not in caps. I usually try to figure out the user - new to the internet/forums or having a hard time seeing before I think they are yelling.

I'm pretty sure LilSparkGirl has it right-- when you establish your username, they deliberately make it not case-sensitive, and then the computer doesn't have the information of where you wanted the caps. Making user names case-insensitive is standard. They could presumably program a "How do you want to display your name?" feature, but that's a lot of work for not much benefit-- most people see the caps even when they're not there.

I'd guess it's just random and the only folks who could answer the question are the spark staffers and I doubt they'd know.

Maybe they'll chime in.

Moving in new directions.

I'm guessing it is because if there was a difference when it was programmed, there would be a GiveMeFries, a givemefries, a Givemefries, etc. Spark is old, there would have to be more programming done to change it.

Like, I typed my username as GiveMeFries, but it's GIVEMEFRIES on SparkPeople... Like I'm yelling or something.
