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!

Of course it matters, imagine if the same occured in 8l34t 5p33k

Of example ;)

I was commenting... not making a *huge* issue from it!

Actually, that was closed by Belsameth because it got hijacked, and a new one started for picture posts to be continued :)

/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.

Plurals do not require an apostrophe.

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

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.
