    Guys,
    Don't know if you're bothered but the CoC has loads of spelling a grammatical mistakes (including punctuation). Of course, the message comes across perfectly so it does the job. Just thought you might like to know.... I for one can't stand the whole:

    Lose/Loose
    Your/You're
    Color/Colour... oh sod it.. we all know the one's I mean...

    Spelling. Ooooo I could rant about it right now..... grrrrr :mad:

    Maybe it serves as a veiled threat that grammar nazis won't be tolerated?



    ;)



    Edit: Should really be in feedback area... now if I can just work out how to move a thread......

    "Its" - the possessive form of it takes no ', to avoid confusion with the contraction of "It is".

    :p

    SIEG HEIL!

    The thread was moved here. I doubt there was another thread about the CoC grammar where he posted originally. Oh look real life picture thread in the DAoC forums... OMG DUPLICATED!

    Plurals do not require an apostrophe.

    Also 2 successive dots are not a valid punctuation mark, wheras 3 are.

    Mistake #1.

    Mistake #2. "one's" signifies a contraction of "one is".

    Don't make me out-pedant you boyo :p

    /me wishes people wouldn't randomly move threads. The CoC is still evolving (much like most forms of sludge). I'm sure at one point it'll get dragged arse backwards through Word or similar to tart it up a bit.

    I can see three there............ ;)

    erm... got me on the other one though! :)

    My response, m'lud, is that official notices should be better written than quickly written responses to a thread.
