Formatting Rules Regarding Paragraphs

Post by Scott » October 10th, 2009, 6:04 pm

Rule #11 of the forum rules requires posters to do the following: Use the quote function to quote other users. Make sure to use two line breaks between paragraphs so there is a full line of blank space between the paragraphs. Do not put all of your posts in bold, italic or underline print; those features are for emphasizing certain text. Do not write in poetry format.

In regards to paragraphs, please remember that the on-topic forums are for posting clear, concise arguments in understandable language; not for posting poetry or riddles. Do not post poetry and do not post in poetry format in the on-topic section of the forum. (Poetry and riddles can be posted in the off-topic section.)

To illustrate, the following would be correct:
This is a sentence. This is a sentence. This is a sentence.

This is a sentence. This is a sentence. This is a sentence.

This is a sentence. This is a sentence. This is a sentence.
The following would be incorrect:
This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.

This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.

This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.
This is a sentence.
The following would also be incorrect because there is only one line break separating the paragraphs:
This is a sentence in the first paragraph. This is another sentence in the first paragraph.
This is a sentence in a second paragraph. This is another sentence in the second paragraph.
