How to sound like a Pro

Post by Sobia6464 on Sat Feb 26, 2011 1:22 am

Simply put, don't say things like:

"I don't like Book of Moon. It sucks."

Make it sound more complex via the English Language

"I dislike Book of Moon simply because, to me, it doesn't deliver exactly what I need. It usually works against me and does more harm then good."

As you can see, the two sentences are the same. However, that is the difference between a troll post/+1 post/flame post (ect...) and a polite, respectable post.

Also, actually use the forgotten English language. I dislike slang and I reallyhatewhenpeopletypelikethiswithnospaces. Don't do that.

As for abbreviations, learn them. If you see anyone use an abbreviation, before being all "Hey! WTF does that mean brah?!" go to the magical website of yugioh.wikia and search it. Usually you'll get what you are looking for (whether it be a term, or an abbreviation, or card ruling).

Don't ask obvious questions (I.E. What does Book of Moon do?) because, most likely, you won't get respect and people will feed you troll posts for answers.

Anything you would like to add, please do.
