A CAPSLOCK COMMUNITY IS ONE WHERE ALL ENTRIES MUST BE IN CAPSLOCK.

EVERYTHING IS IN CAPSLOCK BECAUSE CAPSLOCKING IS AWESOME. CAPSLOCK CURES CANCER, OKAY BBS? AND YES, CAPSLOCKING IS MANDATORY. THIS GOES FOR ALL ENTRIES, ALL COMMENTS, ALL POLLS, AND EMOTICONS (SMILEYS).

Get the idea? Writing not in capslock is known as lowercasing or losercasing and is usual punishable by the offender performing a service or penance (usually writing a fic or making an icon) for whomever caught their transgression.

Capslock communities usual focus on Crack and silliness. They thrive on in-jokes and jargon, and usually have a form of moderated and sometimes exclusive membership. Posting of deliberately bad Manips is a common feature. They are hilarious fun for those involved and usually incomprehensible and slightly annoying to those outside the comm.
