    TEST How come sometimes when I type in all caps, especially my opening sentence, it automatically turns into lower caps?

    MAYBE YOU CANNOT START WITH ALL CAPS

    So you noticed that too?

    Not sure why that happens

    seems to be a function of whether or not you're using the caps lock key

    or the shift key

    OK WELL MAYBE NOT

    BUT YOU CAN END WITH ALL CAPS

    I believe there's a "no shouting" setting in the board software which does this. I suspect it's triggered by the period at the end of the sentence.

    THIS IS A TEST.
    (with period)

    THIS IS A TEST
    (no period)

    Hmm. Guess that's not what triggered it. Maybe it's just the first sentence of a post which can trigger it.
