Repeating Letters!!!! *apology*. - September 18th 2012, 06:56 AM

Alright, so I'mma admit it. I'm hurt. Y'all amazing people have hurt my feelings. I still love you guys, but it's still "."

....

Hey, whassup guys. How are we, are we well, are we good, are we happy? That's good to hear if you are, if you're not, then that's pretty shitty, I guess LOL.

Alright, so a couple of guys have been addressing this (one with me directly, one not), but I just want to write this thread just in case some other people find it irritating or whatever....

The way I write....

As some of you guys well know, I repeat letters when I write some words, like the word "really" and also the word "so", "hey", "good" and a stack of other words, I repeat the vowels when I type and some people apparently find it annoying. [Edited]

This is a more than slightly hyperbolised example of what I am talking about, but you get the jyst. Coming from someone who has never talked to me....

I'll TRY change if you guys really want me to but it is going to take some time and some getting used to and some tiem, I have been repeating the vowels for MONTHS....

It's for emphasis sometimes ("I have been playing drums for soooooooooooooooooooooooo long") but also to add flow and flow is flipping awesome .

Anyways, if you guys find it annoying and want my writing style changed, send me a holler in the comment section BELOW but just warning though, it might take some getting used to for me, even in this post, it felt kind of wierd not repeating letters haha.

If you guys like it then send me a holler in the comments section BELOW too.

And even if you just want to comment for the hell of it, do so in the comments section BELOW haha .

Thanks and sorry if you guys find it irritating....

H.

P.S. This poll and intro were added AFTER Jamie commented

Re: Repeating Letters!!!! *apology*. - September 18th 2012, 08:40 AM

I'm going to be honest with you - since I'm a bit of a "grammar nazi," it does make me cringe when I see the long, drawn-out words. With that being said, I wouldn't encourage you to change unless it was considered spam under TeenHelp's Code of Conduct (which I highly doubt it would be, as you're not doing things like posting excessive smileys). Also, it IS kind of your signature at this point, for better or worse. When I'm skimming a thread and I see
"Goooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooood morning!" I immediately know it's one of your posts. =P I'm sure there are plenty of people who enjoy reading your advice, so adding your signature makes it easier for people who are skimming threads to stop and think, "Oh, this is one of Hamed's responses, I want to read it!"

Well, when you're a graduate student in "real life" and an Article Editor on TeenHelp, you don't really have a choice. =P If someone submitted an article with repeating letters, I'd probably scream! Since you're just posting in the forums, I'm much more lenient - you can get away with an eye twitch. xD

Haha, I would love to see your physical reaction LOL, just jump out of your seat haha . OBVIOUSLY in essays I am slightly more composed but everyone knows that is just a mask, I am never serious .

LOL .

I'll close this poll (if I can) when I go to sleep tonight at 9:30PM in a bit over two hours time and break the news to the kid who asked me to stop haha, but it is looking pretty definite .

Hey Hamed,
I like your repeating letters and I don't want you to change it. You make me smile every time I see it. Your happiness is addictive and you should keep it like this. Your personality is shining through so don't change it..... please

I totally agree! I love your happiness and it makes you sound so enthusiastic when you are talking to me or anybody else. You definitely shouldn't change who you are, who you are is lovely.

I like that you have found a signature for yourself but I, too find it annoying. But like Robin, I'm an article editor and have been on staff for two years. And being on staff, we are told to remain professional. That type of writing is not. So i guess it just bugs me. Sorry

I like it, it makes me laugh when I log on and see it but perhaps keep the style but not add so many 'oooo' on the end as it does occasionally make things hard to read. But I do like it it just make you seem so hyper and happy the whole time which is cool!!

Honestly, I don't care. It's just you. It's like, just something you do. And I have to admit, sometimes it really cheers me up because your enthusiasm shows. I find people who use text talk much more annoying.

I am not going to say what I feel about it because it doesn't matter. What matters is that this enthusiastic, lively person defines who you are and you don't have to change to please anybody. Seriously, thats irrational. Just be you. Do what makes YOU happy. You can't go around pleasing everyone on the planet so just aim at pleasing yourself. (I just came up with this awesome line. )
P.S. Some people could just be jealous of your happiness.

If that's what you want to do, stick at it. There is people on here that 'type lyk dis' and that annoys me but I won't go messaging them asking them to stop so it seems a bit silly that someone messaged you asking you to stop. If they don't like it, they can just not read your posts.

So yeah, type however you want to, as long as it makes sense of course.

honestly chick, I love the repeating letters, they are the best anyway everyone has their habits, would be boring without them.

for example, I call everyone chick, not gonna stop just 'cause the odd person doesn't like it


Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.

It did annoy me at first, but I've gotten used to it and its become your trademark now.
If you're worried about it bothering others, maybe make a compromise and just shorten the amount of repeated letters?

This is super late. But your writing style makes you seem so upbeat, and that kind of makes me happy. xD So if you like it, keep it! Don't change just to suit other people.
Just make sure you aren't sending in papers for school with sentences like, "The dog was veeeeeeeeeerrrrrry friendly." As long as you only type like that for conversations and such and on forums, that kind of thing, than I don't see a problem with it!
