This method is no longer necessary, as Fantage has added the red text update (click here to learn more). We’ll keep this page here in case anyone wants to know how things were before the update!
So I’m pretty sure EVERYONE has come across this problem one time or another on Fantage, but we have never even addressed the problem!
Since I can’t take it anymore(Casey), I will tell you…
HOW TO MAKE YOUR TEXT SHOW
What I mean is, have you ever had the problem that you are chatting with someone, and your text never shows, and it gets really fustrating because that person doesn’t know what your saying? Well, I will tell you HOW you KNOW your text will show.
Ever see people on Fantage say things like this?
Well apparently, if you say specific words capitalized, like SHOES and FRIEND, they will automatically un-capitalize and turn to lowercase letters, shoeS and friend. If it does do this, you KNOW your text will show to other people! If it doesn’t, your text will not show and you will have to change the spelling of your words!
The one on the LEFT will NOT show, the one on the RIGHT WILL show!
Now you don’t ever have to worry about your words “not showing” to other people! Just use this simple trick!
I just realized why Fantage automatically uncapitalizes those testing words like grape, shoes, hope, shirt, shope, hello, etc. It’s because all of them have a bad word hidden inside of them.
I don’t want to show such words on my blog, but I need to prove a point here, so if you are mature enough not to take these words offensively and/or abuse them, you may reveal the hidden text below by highlighting it.
gRAPE, sHOEs, HOpE, SHIrT, sHOpE, HELLo
If you were to capitalize the words like the ones above, you could basically say a bad word without getting caught, because grape, shoes, and the rest are definitely not bad words x)
So, to solve this, Fantage must have taken all those words and uncapitalized them by default when saying it on Fantage. This way, no matter how you capitalized the word, it would show up as lower case anyway.
That means that if your testing word isn’t uncapitalized automatically, the rest of your text won’t show either, so Fantage doesn’t bother to uncapitalize it.
You could technically take any word that has a bad word hidden inside of it and use it as a testing word. Cool, huh?
Hope this clarified some things!
