Now, a lot of people are saying, "I KNOW HOW OKAY?".

But I say, "No, you don't." (sorry, if this sounded offensive)

Then you say, "Hmmp!"

Today, I'm gonna show you how to write a readable and not boring post.

Or rather, give you TIPS on how to write a post.

TIP 1

Use simple words

Well, let least TRY to.

This forum is FULL of kids and some of them don't understand big words like "Photosynthesis" or "Hydrolics"(correct me if my spelling is wrong)[NOT BEING STEROTYPE].

Maybe, you could use simple English to replace these "unfamiliar" words.
Take "Hydrolics" for example, maybe you could use "Pumps" instead.
They're the same after all.

Tip 2

Write in paragraphs (almost)

I'm making this point for YOU @oio, no one else but YOU.

This one is about the human brain. But I'm not gonna go into that.

The idea heres is that you are more interested (regardless whether you are or not) to read something if it's arranged in good short sentences or paragraphs.

It's also much easier to read it that way(?).

Try this out, read both of these and tell me what you think in the poll.
(Be honest!)

  1. The fox ate the sheep and ran away. It jumped all over the place with joy. The boy ran towards the fox with a machete. He swung it through the air. The fox saw him and ran away into its den. It was full of bones. So full, it smelled like one of those flowers that smelled bad.

Which of the layout, is easier to read?

If you pick 2, you are right (to me)

Tip 3

Bold/Emphasise The Idea

If you're trying to get a a certain idea out there, and you want the people to see it. You better make it BOLD.

See what I did there?

Bolding the words attract people's attention to the idea compared to just leaving it like any normal words.

"Does Italics work well?"

Yes, but not as great as Bold. Simply because Italics are words that just have been slanted to the right, and not EMPHASISED like that.

You could BOLDING in just a word, or a phrase!

To make attention to the idea more, uhh...

Attractive (?), try writing it in capitals. Although some might mistake it as if you are SHOUTING.
