    I posted the subject "TEST!" and it went through - evidently punctuation prevents the all-caps rule working.

    Also, it is possible to edit it back to all-caps, no trouble.

    Nicely spotted, stiltman.

    I might add another script for that...I don't want to see subjects like help! or HELP! at all.

    Suggestion of subjects to check for then:

    Help
    Help me
    Help please
    Help me please
    Please help
    Newb need help
    Noob wants your help.
    help needed
    newb question
    noob question
    Question from newb
    newb needs help
    simple question
    question for the experts
    I bet nobody can answer this!

    But that would already be rejected by the new NO CAPS script!

    How about a I.Q. test before you can register..... You need to score at least a 100 to post in the forums. Anything below 100 and your restricted to OT.

    That would restrict most of the regulars :P

    But they rarely stray outside the confines of OT anyway

    Are there any predefined functions in PHP that are similar to UCase() and LCase() for VBScript ? What about having a dummy ASP page that is fed with the title, and contains LCase(title), then feeds the result back to the posting page ?
    If in doubt, Google it.

    You don't think it would be funny to watch them deliberately enter in all caps, only to see it auto-changed to lowercase, so they'd edit it and try to do it again, again and again ? j/k
    If in doubt, Google it.

    Hello,

    Thanks for making the change Baldrick

    In three days or so there haven't been any new ALL CAPITAL LETTERS titles out there!

    Makes it a lot easier to read the main page without those distracting "HELP ME" posts in bold - they still post "help me" but it doesn't stick out the same annoying way

    Maybe you can also look into prevent people from trying to use emoticons and bbcode in the topics.

    a subject like

    Code:
    help me!!!! :( :cry: :bawling:
    is equally as annoying as

    Code:
    HELP ME HELP ME NEWBIE NEEDS HELP

    Originally Posted by Baldrick

    Try:

    need some help
    help please
    what's best
    problems

    I say we just altogether ban the words "problem" and "help" and "best" from subject lines. Nothing is "best" and it's a Captain Obvious moment when you post and say there is a problem or need help... DUH!!!
    Three totally worthless words.

    Maybe the word "sucks" could be added too. Another worthless word for a topic.

    maybe the word "sucks" could be banned/prohibited from all forum posts (post body as well as subjects), except for the OT forum of course

    i think simply banning the word 'help' or 'problem' is a bit over reactionary.

    But banning 'sucks' and or 'best' is probably good thing.

    Sensible subjects often have help or problem in the title, but i cant think of a sensible one that involves sucks or best......

    Unfortunately (as shown in test forum) it can be worked round, all you need to do is change one letter to non caps.....

    so

    PLEASE HELP ME I NEED LOTS - wont get thru

    PLEASE HELP ME I NEED LOTs - will get thru

    but changing an S (for example) to a 5 (five) for example wont get thru

    If people try to intentionally avoid these preventative measures, they'll be warned.
