Longstreet's Application Pointers

After noticing a large amount of truly pitiful apps here recently I thought I'd give a few pointers.

-Before you start think about your forum name.  Think hard... is that really what you want it to be.  Really?

-Trying to make the ENTIRE application 'funny' is overdone.  It just makes you look immature, or like a try-hard trying to make up for terribleness.  Save your creative writing for the last 3 questions, that's what they are for.

-Don't play the 'too cool to know my computer specs' card.  Right click on my computer and hit Properties, or ask your parents which kind of Dell they bought you.

-Make the overall app readable and presentable. Maybe set it off on the next line with bold letters or colors.  I find myself skipping over apps that are all jumbled together.  Check for spelling and keep the smileys, lols, and rofls to a minimum.

-Answer #9 correctly.  According to webster an expletive is:

--- Quote ---
1 a: a syllable, word, or phrase inserted to fill a vacancy (as in a sentence or a metrical line) without adding to the sense  ; especially : a word (as it in “make it clear which you prefer”) that occupies the position of the subject or object of a verb in normal English word order and anticipates a subsequent word or phrase that supplies the needed meaningful content b: an exclamatory word or phrase  ; especially : one that is obscene or profane

--- End quote ---
