  • #1 ✎ 74 KingCo Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength If you are going to ask a bunch of questions like this please make one thread where you put all of them instead of making multiple threads for multiple questions. Anyway, If you are trying to make text stay in one spot use: LOCATE 10,10 PRINT "Example" Or if you want it to be shorter: LOCATE 10,10:?"Example" LOCATE lets you specify the coordinates of the text on the screen. If I'm not mistaken, the first number is it's X position, and the second number is it's Y position. The first number moves it farther to the right depending on how high the number is, and the second number moves it down depending on how high it is. Hope this helped. Posted

Express Yourself To not print a line return after the end of a PRINT statement, add a semicolon onto the end of it. PRINT "Hello" PRINT " world!" 'Both on separate lines. PRINT "Hello"; PRINT " world!" 'On only one line because the semicolon on the first PRINT cancels out the line break. Posted

    this is officially the WRONG WAY TO USE THE FORUM you're supposed to make threads for every question. it's da rulez. (but don't post questions daily either, that's also part of da rulez)

  • #4 ✎ 930 Y_ack there are no formal rules regarding thread creation etiquette In context, the plea was very valid. The user posted a series of questions that only made it harder to answer each one, failed to look for existing answers first (probably), and then, as you can see, deleted the post with the question. If the question is a GOOD one, it deserves its own thread where it can be discussed in detail and help others. But it's not always the case that the question is good. It can be inappropriate to split up a series of questions if they'll only require quick answers or are for a very specific scenario anyway. Posted Edited by Y_ack

    The only real rule for using any forum is to not be obnoxious. Interpret that as you will.
