>>And how do you know that people don't read the reviews because they don't want to go blind from the bad grammar?

Well they atleast find a review, how could a Croatian read let's say the review of Populous II, and find that game on the Croatian version of the site? By translation, but let's say that your system would be used, he couldn't have find it, he would leave the site...
I've been sustraining myself from insults but your idea is just stupid, and why are you so hostile, even back from that guitar topic...(why do you say those things to Sebatianos take a look here http://www.abandonia.com/index2.php?...=en&country=si , he made more translations than any of us, and probably the most of reviews), he's done more to this site than you and your idiotic idea will ever do...
You're a real Lamer...

Wrong. I was obviously talking about the comment he made, not individual spelling/grammatical errors. See, Sebatianos ruined his reputation in my eyes two months ago with his high and mighty prattling about how he was better than everyone else because he claimed to be a teacher at some school. I know you and others here are slow and will most likely interpret my previous posts as the same thing Sebatianos has been doing, but in fact I don't consider myself better than everyone. The difference is that I think grammar is important and reviews should be well-written and informative, while Sebatianos likes to talk down to people whom he considers dirt on the soles of his shoes.

I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to say, but I'll assume that you mean that Croatians leave Abandonia because they can't find their games in Croatian. So what? I thought that's why there is a Croatian version of Abandonia.

Over here, we like to call it "dry New England wit." You haven't seen hostile yet.

Quantity does not equal quality. Have you read any of my reviews? Probably not, but if you did, you would see that I took the time to play the games, think up a logical and informative review, and then write it. When I finish writing, I usually go back and reorganize my review. I'm a firm believer in doing things the right way the first time, so I don't just slop something together and put my name on it just to get the credit that comes with it. I've only written a few reviews for this website, but there are several reasons why I stopped. These are a few:

1. The process of gaining access to games that needed reviews was painfully slow. I wasn't concerned with getting my reviews posted so much as actually getting a new assignment.

2. Too many arguments. I used to hang out in the shoutbox on and off, and people always found things to argue about.

3. People who can read words but can't comprehend the meaning, such as Sebatianos with his example a few posts ago, and his apprehension to the term "militant atheists."

You seem not to undesrtand what everyone else is posting, they'll only find games that were reviewed by a Croatian (i.e. Kosta, Unknown Hero etc.), and they won't find your reviews, and what's most important - games, the game will be uploaded on the english version of the site but the Croatian page won't , becuse Einherjar thought it would be smart...(and I was merely stating an example, People from England won't find the games reviewd by a Croatian, etc.)

Einhi...
Do we really need to go into this again?
You know I don't have to rpove anything to you, but I do feel sorry you envy me so much, you always feel the need to disprove the fact that I'm a teacher.
I won't even go into your sence of humor, because your obvious lack of it was proven a few posts back. You obviously never heard of the thing called humor anyway.

And about your reviews - well I had double check a few things while translating them and found out, that not all was as perfect in your reviews as you'd like to think, but I don't wanna hurt your feelings by pointing those mistakes out.

If you really can't see the points others are making - it's because you're stuck with a simple idea in your head - that you're the only one who's right. Face it, you're idea isn't going to happen, because one person doesn't decide what a comunity will do (especially not a person, that's so pigheaded).

I don't have time and will to pursue this discussion any longer, einherjar... Only one thing is obvious, you have extremely hostile relations towards people, and I pity you because of that! Your lack of understanding and stubborness isn't worth anything else but pitying! Won't get far that way, my friend...

Hence why a few of us have taken it upon ourselves to help out on that front, because we agree with this ^ sentence, however much crap the rest of your post was.

Can we get all this flaming spam deleted please? It's upsetting my digestion, and I'd quite like to be able to see who has given us permission to edit their reviews.

<I could always fill einherjar's full of errors just to annoy him, but then that'd be petty...>

I don't envy you at all. You claim to be an English teacher, and yet your command over the English language is shaky at best.

I never said my reviews were completely perfect, just that they were a lot better than many reviews posted here.

Why is it when someone is winning an argument, everyone else accuses that person of being egotistical?

I suppose you would prefer it if I just kept my head down and kissed behind, wouldn't you? You and your boorish friends keep making a mountain out of a molehill just because you disagreed with my suggestion. All you are trying to do is make this into a big battle so this thread can get closed. The only reason you consider me so "hostile" and "stubborn" is because I heard your arguments against my suggestion and I proceeded to refute it. You would rather have it that I simply hear your opinion and agree with it.
