    Well there's two way of looking at this. First, we shouldn't HAVE TO award anyone for posting "good", because that SHOULD BE the standard here. Second, I already started giving points, but it's hard for me to constantly keep up (you can vouch for that ketaro), and these points are coming out of my own pocket. Also there isn't much we can award you with, because some people DO NOT CARE about points.

    Finally, for me, grammar is not my problem which I have reiterated over and over again. All I dont want, personally, are posts that use NO punctuation at all, and on top of that is impossible to understand because of typos.

    some of you are lazy and that's okay, but it's to a point where some of us can't read what you mean. Ironically, the ones with English as their second language type a lot better than those who have English as primary language.

    Well, as was said, the 25 character rule was upped to 50. That's another FAQ example that should be organized for everyone to see. Read my FAQ post here: FAQ Problem

    Thanks Chief, you supplied as a good example of why things like that should be recorded for others to see, thus proving or helping my point in my first post on my thread.

    I don't think that "good" posts necessarily translate into good grammar. While it is encouraged to spell and type with correct spelling and grammar, good posts are intelligent posts, posts that make a great point and contributes to the thread in any way.

    And pyoro is right, there shouldn't be any reward for quality posts, seeing as that's what everyone's goal should be. The real reward for being a "quality" member should always be the respect you earn from others, and that's definitely something others should shoot for.

    I think that is asking a little too much at the moment.
    Let's start with readable posts and work from there.

    You can't be serious? You should be joking.

    Quality posts > Readable crap.

    I know that Silver. I'm just saying that quality posts are much harder to come by than reasonable spelling.

    Hassun correct me if I am wrong but didn't way back we have a thing about the AIM type language posts (u = you, r = are...crap) not being acceptable? Maybe it was one of those things Zui had as a sticky that got lost somewhere along the way? Either way I think it should be a rule...I understand people from other countries not using proper English (Not that it floats since Kedar is from Japan and types better English then I do) but there is no excuse for just being lazy.
