Lightbulb Grammar Squad!

Assemble!!


Anyone interested? We need at least four (plus me, obviously) English nit-pickers. If we can each do a review-check from time to time it'll be worth it. Just post here! We get our own forum!

This isn't going to turn into some fiasco, where members of this group are going to also be running around, correcting the grammar in daily forum posts, is it? That kind of OCD behavior gets very old, very fast.

Well the group was created (or better restored) mainly to correct reviews not posts.

That's good to hear. I've visited forums in the past where the same people hopped around, correcting every little harmless grammar mistake (basically imagine a group of "grammar mods", and you'll get the gist of it). Not a particularly enjoyable place to visit and read as a result. I'd hate to see this place hit such lows.

I doubt you'll find that here seeing that English is not the native language of more than half the members.

That, and that I think that only myself and Sgtboat are the only members of the (I think) 6-or-so member squad that speak English as a first language.
