You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.

Oh ... so sorry! It depends on the usage:

I like full-screen movies.

I have a full screen of DMS ads.

Never use fullscreen.

I base these usages on AP, but I see "fullscreen TVs" and "full screen mode" all the time.

This is why hyphens suck. In none of the examples does the use of a hyphen add to understanding.

Yeah ... when you're describing something, hyphenate.

"Run it in full-screen mode" - "Full-screen" describes "mode"

"Run it full-screen" - "full-screen" describes an implied noun, such as "mode" or "application."

I hope I didn't just confuse you. :lol:

I tend to avoid ehow results when I Google things, but sometimes you do end up finding decent info in an Ehow article.. You just gotta wade through a bunch of crap to find it. :(
dont panic. I'm not here to hate.

When I'm writing something simplistic or not likely to hurt people, plants or animals, I'll use the eHow article for the links. Sometimes it's the links right there in my search (I use Swagbucks, which bases theirs off of Google, followed by Yahoo! If my search pops up with nothing of use) but I've also found a lot of useful links that way. I never, ever actually read the eHow article, so that I don't get the phrasing/idea in my head and trip the plag flag (or the CE who thinks he is the plag flag!)

What a funny thread title, now that so much has happened. How much longer will content mills be around for? I think 2012 will see the end of the current incarnation of the content mill.

Personally, I believe there is cycle for all things. From what I have read, seen and heard, many website owners are realizing that bulk content is not the way to drive their businesses forward. From my experience, many business owners would rather go back to high-quality, customized content without all the crazy SEO word stuffing and a kabillion content pieces that convey nothing.

I think 2012 will be a great year for good writers/editors who are tenacious enough to target specific industries within their preferred niches.

For me, I have targeted travel. And I have found that online travel service websites and publications much prefer individual content rather than bulk generic content that anyone can find on the Internet. As a client told me, "It makes us stand out in a generic crowd."
