I can't get over the fact that when someone is interested in my roleplay and I'm all for starting a discussion with them, their "true" writing skills and/or levels come out. I mean, yes you see someone asking with a question mark if something in particular is open or someone says they're interested in doing a particular pairing with you and have an exclamation point on the end because they're excited, but what about after that? I have to say, it turns me down that when people do have correct grammar and spelling on your request thread, they dumb down interest by showing what they really type like while you're discussing some ideas and/or plots with them. It's abhorring to me, people sort of "switching" it up and because I'm a grammar nazi, I can't stand it when that happens. If they can't apply proper writing skills in simply chatting, who's to say they will or won't do the same thing during roleplay? I understand your lol, but really, if I see improper grammar and spelling and text lingo and everything unproper on the webpage in front of me, I won't look forward to roleplaying with you if that's the way you always talk while chatting online. Thus, I believe it is VERY IMPORTANT to use proper grammar and spelling to the best of your ability wherever you are, ESPECIALLY if you plan to roleplay with someone. Otherwise, I think chances can be lowered for these people, depending on circumstances and how much their partner and/or a person who wants to roleplay with them cares about proper grammar and spelling.
