Welcome! 03/05/2016Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change. If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away. I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

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!
