Okay I've been looking around the threads at random, always watching out for new things that should be explained here. Not picking out any names here but this is something i saw that needs addressing as well.
To do this though I am going to make several posts on here. One is a Bad post that is hard to read and is very messy! The second is of the same post only really well organized. After this I will do another post explaining why they are set up differently and the pro's and con's of both.
Sammy I trotted into the land a bay foal OOC: Sally and a grey foal OOC: Bessie with me. "Mummy where are we?" Bessie asked. "Nearly there," I replied. OOC: Sally [/img]http://www.freefoto.com/images/908/33/908_33_3275---Brown-Foal_web.jpg[/img] Bessie
Bessie I also trotted into the land, not liking it. Sally I moved close to my sister
1st Post - Messy and Unreadable Example PROS: none CONS: its an eyesore, hard to read, hard to tell what is the post and what is not in character, the pictures are in the middle of everything. Not set out right
2nd Post - Neat and Understandable PROS - Neat, tidy, easy to read, easy to understand, everything is set out well. CONS: none
Can you see that there is a good side to good setting out? Rememebr the following format for a post and nothing goes wrong:
[image of character] [character name] [post] [OOC: incuding links and banners if more that one in thread. Also anything that is not in character]
