No More All Caps?

Anyone else notice that you cannot do all caps anymore, or has it always been like that?

ALL CAPS RIGHT HERE?

CAPS IS CAPITALIZATION FOR ALL THE WORDS YOU write.

Edit:

I figured it out. Only the first post can have all caps in it, every other post cannot. Anyone else think that is weird?

Discuss please.

It's too much noise in the forums, so they disabled it to stop people from shouting. The youngsters are always shouting, back in my days we had respect for the elders and did not shout when they were around. Damn youngsters...

Putting in caps on a forum is like saying the word like every second in a sentence. It pisses you off when someone else does it, but you don't mind when you do it.

Those gosh derned whipper snappers and their shouting and their...their loud music and their going to metal shows to pretend to be windmills and pick up change...Why, back in my day, we had an old fashioned circle pit, and we wore shirts that meant something! Not these band licensed basketball jerseys that read B.O.O. on them...Curse them all! Little snot nosed brats think they 'r better'en us because we all older then them with the lolz and teh pwnz and the rofflecopters...

dag gum whipper snappers...and their wild sex parties...and their glass candies...(and dag gum anyone who didn't get some of the pop culture references in this post).

Oh, and sorry for killing your thread there Evil.

THIS SOUNDS TOO WEIRD TO BE TRUE!

BUT IT IS! I WONDER IF a SINGLE NON-CAPS LETTER IS ENOUGH?

IT SEEMS QUOTING NON-CAPS WORKS TOO!

OK, SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS, I WILL STOP NOW.

It wasn't me quoting something in lower case that made it possible to write in all caps, it was me doing one lower case letter, albeit in white so you wouldn't see to easily =P

I r sneaky!!!11

I noticed this a while back in one of the threads where some guy made the thread, and his first post was all caps.

So in an attempt to be a smartass (I don't remember what I said) I replied in all caps, just to push "submit reply" and see my post had been reverted to lower case.

This has been like this for at least 5 years now on VBulletin boards. It's certainly nothing new at all. You can have all caps as long as you put a single letter lowercase. You'll notice when I do it I include one letter or word at the end of the post so that it doesn't auto-change it.

Get with the times, this is ancient.

Sorry, but old habits die hard. I will try my best to not annoy you with my extra lines of text in every post =P

At least I can make one person happy today =D

I couldn't agree more, i find it extremely difficult to read as the words don't flow in a sentence and every word feels like a new line.

Hmmm, you are correct, quoting in lower case does not allow a full caps post, my mistake.
