When I type EBR (all letters caps) in this post (http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/showpost.php?p=326043&postcount=245), it gets transformed into Ebr.

World Filter Problem ?

I noticed that, too, last week or so. Thought it was just to keep us from "yelling" at eachother.

NOT that any of us here at the WAB would do that!! ;)



EDIT: But I just did it and it worked! It worked!! :)

I am still trying to edit my post to get the acronym correct and it still doesn't work. :frown:

Perhaps this is because said post is about froggy stuff :biggrin:

A Filter To Keep Us From Shouting? It's Possible.

Ebr? Ebr. What Does Ebr Stand For?

You May Have Guessed That This Was A Test.

This Was Only A Test.

Oddly enough, one can capitalize WAB but you can NOT capitalize EBR...interesting...

Or actually you can! :)

Hmm....

EBR.

That worked.

IT DOESN'T WORK WHEN THERE'S TOO MUCH CAPITALIZATION, I GUESS. ;)

SOME AMOUNTS OF CAPITALIZATION ARE ALLOWED BUT TOO MUCH TRIPS THE "SENSOR" :)

Shipwreck - They don't know. They have no idea. LoL!!:tongue: They may not come right out and admit it, though...

Kinda like asking TH for directions - I guarantee you, that when it comes down to it, You're going to have to go in and ask for the directions yourself. ;)

I did notice that there is the last active threads thing at the bottom of the main screen...never noticed that before. Pretty cool. :)

From a defective memory it is (something like) Engins Blindes d'Recconnaisance. I bet the spelling is wonky, but it sounds rather like that, Hot Patter.

It doesn't work when you attach an image to the post :

1. Type a word with caps for all letters
2. Attach an image
3. Post

Caps is only retained for the first letter of the word.

Example in the next post.

Not THAT defective, Glyn.

Actually pretty good compared with what Google returns for EBR =
Engin Blindé de Reconnaissance.

Same problem with the title of a post : TITLE (all letters cap, no space) becomes Title.

Any solution out there ?

Good question. Wish I had an immediate answer but I'll see what I can do.
