English Grammar/Style NAZI thread
« on: February 26, 2013, 02:31 »

"Me fail English? That's unpossible!"
Let's have a dedicated thread for English improvement. This part is important for games with text control, but very few of us are English. Let's have the text message suggestions here. Let's collect all examples of bad style and language misuse here. Add-ons, posts (beginning from this one), maybe the game itself (if any). Can't judge because I have the same trouble so I can't even make add-ons if I'll ever try.

Can this wait till the release of 0.9.9.7?  There has been quite a few fixes to the language, at least, those that doesn't involve digging through the Pascal sources and munging them there.

Of course, I am under the assumption from reading the first post that this is the intent of this thread.  If it is a general "let us improve our English!" thread, then yes, wrong section.

50/50 of both, so 1st half waits till .7 and 2nd half is unneeded. Roger that sir. I think it's time to close or delete the thread.

You mean "those that *don't* involve digging through the Pascal sources..."  ;)

So, posts 7 & 8. When I open the thread, I've wondered about how much this thread will last BEFORE someone mention that old joke. Six posts. Just six. Eight hours.
Damn, it was fast. Too fast. I've expected more.
