  1. This thread is the place to discuss spelling, grammar, and everything else about the proper use of the English language. All corrections, discussions of improper use, and jokes about errors should be done here, not in the rest of the forum. Anyone who does not wish to read "Grammar Nazis" or "spelling flames" is invited to ignore this thread. If it bothers you, don't read it! If, however, English is your second (or more) language, and you would like to improve your use of it; if you're a native speaker but find that your writing lacks the eloquence which you desire; if you need to be able to write in professional contexts or other forums where poor use of the language would be a detriment; or, if you just plain love the language and want to see it used correctly (and your tongue gets sore from biting it when you see common errors) -- this is the place for you! Remember, courtesy rules of the forums still apply here. Correcting spelling is allowed, but in a polite, respectful way. Actual flames are still not allowed. Whenever possible, don't just say that someone's grammar is incorrect, explain what the error is and what the correct options are, including shades of meaning they might convey. In other words, try to be helpful! If you see something that doesn't look right to you, but aren't sure why, post it here and ask! Examples may be quoted from real life and the printed word as well as from other threads on this forum. You can use the "quote multiple posts" function to quote something in another thread and bring it to this one. Rules of this thread will be adjusted and adapted as needed -- hopefully there won't be much need to if everyone plays nicely!
  2. To clarify the title, let me give some background. A few years ago, I took it upon myself to clean up the grammatical mistakes on the main cast's wiki pages, since they were making the pages nearly unintelligible in some places. Now that I have more time on my hands, I'd like to go back and do the same for every single page on the entire wiki. Please note that this is not a dig against any of the content creators on the wiki in any way. This is just me expressing my intent to make the wiki into something that follows a convention of style and employs proper diction and punctuation, so that errors in such will not distract someone who's just looking something up from both finding what they're looking for and/or understanding what they've found. I will also change the wording of specific parts to avoid overuse of some words (e.g., before I attacked the main cast's pages the first time, the word "revealed" was in every other sentence). If there's a page in particular anyone wants me to attack first, let me know in a comment. For anyone who's interested in the edits I've made or the reasons behind them, I've put a list of all the pages on the Wiki, and whether or not I've been through them, on my Wikia Blog. I have posted this on my Wikia blog as well, but as it may or may not get more views here, I figured I'd place it here as well. Again, this is not a comment on the contributions anyone has made, but merely an expression of my intent to make the wiki follow a semantic convention (and thus look like it has a style guide, which in turn makes it look more professional).
