    Typing Style

    Which Fingers Go Where - Peter's Online Typing Course

    Does anybody actually type this way?? I was just thinking today that I use the internet all the time, thus type constantly through the day, but am I typing the text book correct way? Is there even a text book way? Apparently there is.

    Does anyone type like this as shown in the link, or know of any specific ways to type. I was never taught to type. Once I got to highschool I had to type pretty much all the time, and taught myself. Now doing my degree I type everything out since I type much faster than I write like probably 99.9% of the computer population. Does anyone think there is a right way to do it?

    Do you guys use all your fingers. I tried like the thingy showes in the link but couldnt do it at all :/

    Yeah, I had typing class in high school.

    That is the way we were taught to do it.

    Re: Typing Style

    Yep the way it shows in the link is how I've been doing it since the old days. Really never thought about it use the hands in the logical way and hardly ever look at the keyboard when typing. Just things that come natural after 2 and half decades of using something.

    Re: Typing Style

    Yep, that's how it's supposed to be done apparently. When I was a kid I had typing class, in grade 2/3 or some crap, since I went to a private school. I didn't use this skill for a while, but then started using it again in grade 7. Now I've memorized the Latin and Cyrellic keyboards, can type without looking, all that good sheet.

    I find it funny that I can type without looking, but because, in my head, I can think a lot faster than I can type out the words, I have a lot of keystroke errors. It's quite frustrating...

    Re: Typing Style

    My fingers assume that position on the keyboard naturally, was never really taught the "right way".

    Re: Typing Style

    I was 'taught' that way but I don't use it. I type primarily with my index fingers without looking. I dunno.

    Re: Typing Style

    Nah I use my index and middle fingers on my right hand and index on my left to type primarily with assistance from right ring finger and left middle and I always use my right thumb for the space button. I use the left ring finger for to use the CAPS button. In fact I'm pretty sure if you catch me naturally at my keyboard my left ring is constantly resting on caps and my right thumbs is constantly hovering above the space button. My pinkies and left thumb may as well not exist.

    This is just how I do it and I have never been thought how to type. I type faster than I write.

As you know I'm apart of a shit load of forums and one of them seems to be in chaos. You have a Owner who barely is on the site these days, and only made one Global Moderator for the forum. It seems the chaos has gotten so bad members mostly younger members are using racist and gay slurs to their answers in debate. Legit I saw three threads where members put f***** and that's it. Yesterday I rage over these members I basically told them to stop that, it gives no value to what you're saying in a post. No one will take you seriously if you using such words just to say it. Shoot even the sb is a jungle full of chaos with the same situation. I came to the G-Mod and said hey you're in charge of this forum, you let shit go under the rug why did I say that? Well last week a member came into my LD for Impact and spoiled the whole show for most people. I went in the sb for the forum and said hey man this guy is fucking up the experience for people in the sb can you do something. He pretty much knew this member and told me he's done this before so I'm thinking it took me to say something for you to act? Also a month ago I had a problem with a member named Nero where randomly out of no where he puts racist pics of Hispanic doing crimes, eating Tacos etc! I was like one I never talked about this guy the purpose of this. Again this G-Mod knew about his antics as well as Puls3 the Admin. A month before this I told the Admin he was a problem putting down new members left and right. Thank God I screencaped his actions and he hasn't been there since. Okay now back to the Global Mod I took it twitter and told the guy straight up you don't act because you love the slurping of your dick from members. He's doesn't want to mend fences pretty much and besides setting up a league for the forum for WWE 2k14 he does nothing for the forum. Now I want to talk to Puls3 personally because his rules are being broken left and right and his staff in charge is doing nothing by joining in the fun. I have a plan to get two or three other staff members who I think will be fair and firm when needed should I talk to him. I know I'm taking it seriously but I love this forum like I love this forum and I don't want it to be spoiled like Milk you feel me? Also on twitter and on the forum a bunch of little kids came to box with me when I was speaking my mind and I told them grow some hair on your chest before talking to me lol

    Re: Typing Style

    I could never type the "right way" because I could never type without looking at the keyboard. And my teacher would put the tops to paper boxes over our hands so we couldn't look. I sat there and did nothing because I didn't know where the keys were. My mom on the other hand god I wish I could type like her. xD

    (Cause you all love me...lol)

    I type that way as well. I was self taught too. I found it easier to type like that when I was in AIM chatrooms cybering bots. I can also type with one hand pretty good because of the cybering with bots.
