Forum Wars: SPELLCHECK

We have seen the great work CODE has done with 'content creation'. It's been many years since they brought their mission to New Eden. Perhaps we need a new dogmatic and fanaticism in war. Perhaps it is time to take Forum Wars, to a new level with SPELLCHECK.

SPELLCHECK would declare war on capsuleers on the basis of bad grammar, poor punctuation, incohesive sentences and other intransigences of the written word. It will bring a new age to New Eden and to the quality of forum posts. Could there be any greater mission?

A war on intolerance ?

Seriously, a lot of people in Eve (me included) don't have english as our first language. Instead of being holier-than-tho, maybe you should take pride and admiration in the fact people are learning your culture on top of theirs.
And if you think they should speak a perfect english if any, why don't you set the example and start speaking a perfect french? Or any other language for that matter?

The above message presents my opinions on the topic at hand. If there is a conflict between my views and reality, consider reality to be correct until proven otherwise.

Your just trying to make us look feeble minded and dum. Look I can give you words, lots of words, a wall owrds.

the New Order, a movement dedicated to lives of highsec miners. As the Father of the New Order and Saviour of Highsec, it is my red privilege to tell highsec miners what they can and can't do. If they refuse to obey me, they risk being bum Though I am engaged in law enforcement, I don't see that as my primary role. I am an educator, mentor, friend, and surrogate parent to the miners. The New Order is all loot. That's my true purpose in EVE: Helping people make loot the most of them Sadly, too many miners these days are drawn into activities like AFK mining, excessive mining, and petitioning me formay be a dreamer, but I'm also a level-headed pragmatist. I know what it will take to rehabilitate these miners and mold. It's going to take a lot of patThankfully, I am not the only dreamer out there. Many share my vision of a better future for highsec. Perhaps you do, too. If so, then you can consider yourself a member of the New Order. I hope you'll support our work and encourage others to join us. And maybe I'll even see you in Halaima or other New Order territories?
( and no I did not cut and paste nuthen ) These are my words, you don't now me, now scat!!!! minor!!!! Begone!



I told him, now he scat on me.

Don't forget, Dom and Duck and Bing and Sasha and James have my backside!!!Evil

I'm a special elite ganker, Codes finest warrior bard druid. I gank as much as possible cause I'm good. Don't mess with me minor, i'll mess with you harder. I have no honor. Dommy and Sasha are my wingmen and have my backside.

Thats the 3st. The OP broke his own rule in the first post saying CODE bought a mission. Sounds a bit weird. Usually people only buy 10/10's and the like. Im eager to see how he goes about wardec'ing himself. Its only the right thing to do.

Signatures wer cooler when we couldn't remove them completely.

"Poe's Law" is not a law. It's a suggestion for a niche and often humourless community - 'creationism'. For satire i point you to Jonathan Swift's, "A Modest Proposal". I don't believe the most famous of satirical works required a smiley-face-wink? Blink

I've found that learning a language via serious and successful study tends to make mis-spelling less frequent. It occurs more often with people who learn by 'picking it up' - casually, or without grinding through grammar tables, etc., because of course you don't need to know how a word is spelled in order to pronounce it correctly.

That's fine; but if you're going to communicate through writing, then you'll encounter people who'll point out your errors and offer corrections. I was lucky; I always met people who weren't afraid to correct my errors - and from that I profit/profited greatly. This happened whether I was speaking or writing.

But some people are defensive about their language skills. They don't like to be corrected publicly, or even at all. This might be a general thing in their personality. If you're committed to learning someone else's language and culture, you might as well make the effort to learn it to the best of your ability, and to thank those who encourage you by correcting you.

Some people can't spell, in any language. There's always a debate about what causes poor spelling. I spell quite well in English, Russian, Arabic, Cornish; not so well in German. I probably spell these languages better than I speak them. But that's because my background is in reading. I've always maintained that someone who reads a great deal in a language that they speak or wish to speak, and who isn't dyslexic, will be good at spelling. You know instantly if a word 'looks' wrong, but you must know what it should look like.

Don't diss people who correct you. If you wish, explain that you're not using your primary language and that you'll be grateful for all the help you can get! It's a bit like this game of ours. If someone tries genuinely to help you by correcting your fail-fit Retriever (after blowing it up of course), thank them for their generosity and leave the ranting to others. Big smile
