- First, do not fabricate your own lowercase L signage just to photograph for this blog. Please only submit genuine lowercase L sightings.
|FAKE! (I know because I made this)
- The basic qualifier for a lowercase L sighting is a sign containing at least one word consisting of mostly uppercase letters and at least one lowercase L.
- The words "I'll", "All" and "Ill" may look better written as I'LL, ALL and ILL, but they may be legitimately written with only the first letter uppercase. So this mug, below, is not a good example of a breach in lowercase L protocol.
|Does not need to read "I'LL"
- If a word consists of all uppercase letters except for a lowercase L that is noticeably TALLER than the rest of the word, it's not so confusing, and therefore less desirable.
|IT'S STREAKless! But not so confusing.

- Note, the entire sign does not need to be written with all uppercase letters, nor do all the L's need to be lowercase. But the more uppercase letters and the more lowercase L's, the better.
- Lowercase L cases are not limited to handwritten signs. Graffiti, printed ads, personal notes and letters also qualify.
- HaCkEr \_337 SpEaK does not count.
More rules as I think of them.
