Weird Capital Letter Related Coupon Issue

Diamonique 4,115 1,138 September 19, 2016 at 01:08 AM
I was trying to post a coupon code in the thread linked to below which the post is in. The code had capital letters in the beginning and end with a number in the middle. No matter what I did the board made all the capital letters lowercase even after trying to edit my post.

I'm going to try posting the coupon code here too to see if the same thing happens.

SEPT4FREE (It didn't do it here)

Here's the post in the thread it first happened to me in.

hi diamonique,

content that is all caps can't be the entire content of your post. thus, if you wish to post a coupon code that is all in caps, you need to also include some other text that has normal casing (either lowercase, or mixed upper/lower) Smilie

Thanks. A bit after I started this thread I thought that might be the case. I just found it weird that even after I edited my post that the coupon code still went back to all lowercase letters.

WHY is this? It's REALLY annoying when posting trivia answers etc.
