Exclamation Join the Grammar Squad!

Lately, the number of active members in our Grammar Squad has reached an all-time low. We would like to remedy this by searching for new recruits!

How about it? We need dedicated and hard-working people to join our elite cadre, and help in the never-ending struggle against mispronunciations and horrible typos! It's very simple really.

Grammar Squad work consists of checking reviews for any grammatical or structural mistakes. These reviews are either ones that belong to games that are on-site already, or ones that belong to games that are waiting to be added.

If you would like to join, simply post here, and you will be added into the Grammar Squad. The secret Grammar forum (which common ordinary users cannot see) will then be unlocked for you, and therein you will find the rules, as well the necessary equipment for your task.

Well what are you waiting for? Sign up now!

I'm a bit new here (and won't have a lot of spare time), but am reasonably proficient in English grammar and spelling if you guys think I might be of assistance.

I understand if there's a minimum membership period and/or post count before appointment to these positions though.

Hi there DOS dino! Glad you could join us, your help is greatly appreciated! We are all volunteers here so there isn't any minimum membership or post count. What matters most is consistency. Even if you could only check two or three reviews a month that would be a BIG help!

So welcome aboard matey! The secret forum has now been revealed to you (or will be shortly). You can find instructions on your tasks in this short guide.

Thanks, I'll try to be an asset.

I'm currently receiving the following error message on the instruction link:

"DOS dinosaur, you do not have permission to access this page."

Not sure if "shortly" in this case means hours or days (weeks?), but I'll check back again later.

I'm not quite sure what the Grammar Squad entails, but I'm willing to join and lend a hand. I've always been a stickler for proper English grammar.

In fact, I've personally completed and released "grammar mods" for two computer strategy games, namely Galactic Civilizations II and Armageddon Empires. You can find the Armageddon Empires mod (and the readme I wrote for it) here; as for the GalCivII mod, I'm afraid I've lost track of it at this point. I haven't played GalCivII nor participated in its online community for a while now, and the mod is lost somewhere in the churning bowels of the GalCivII mod database.

Glad to be aboard, and thank you!

I promise I won't vanish after three days as people are wont to do on the Internet.
