1 Sitely typos that I've noticed. on Sun Jan 30, 2011 6:49 pm

So I was looking around the site and I noticed that, even aside from some of the users, there are quite a few typos, like with the smileys and even a few of the forums, so I'm just going to point them out.

First one that bugs me every time that I pass it:
The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] forum. Someone was a little apostrophe happy when they set up that forum, the apostrophe doesn't need to be there because it's not possessive. The computer doesn't own anything.
It reads: "Computer's"
It should read: "Computers"

Second is the description for the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] forum.
It reads: "Projects you did or working on."
It should read: "Projects you did or are working on."
That's just a small grammatical thing.

And almost ALL of the forum descriptions have too much capitalization. The only things that need capitalized are the beginning of the sentence and really important things, like names/countries/titles.
For example our dearest [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] forum reads:
"Spam, Flood, Old and Misleading Topics/Messages will be moved to this section."
When it should actually read:
"Spam, flood, old and misleading topics/messages will be moved to this section."
Better yet,
"Spam, flooding, misleading and old topics/messages will be moved to this section."
That just sounds better.

Onto smileys:
:farao: "Pharaoh" not farao.

:rendeer: "Reindeer" not rendeer.

"Smurf" not smerf.

:bom: "Bomb" not bom.

:affraid: "Afraid" not affraid.

:pirat: "Pirate" not pirat.

🎅
Also I noticed that there are two santa smileys and both of them ask you to use ":santa:" for them.
I don't know if that works or not, but I'd suggest changing one to :santahat: or something.

Thanks for your consideration, I realize that this is a bit of a long post, but there were quite a few typos and I felt like explaining them for whatever reason.

Lmao, this could be helpful for the admins.
For how little you post, I'm surprised you catch this many.
Or are you purposely trying to find the faults in everything?

The smilies came with the site when I made it I didn't put the names for those.
But I guess I can fix them.

@Sleepy; Just because I don't post a whole ton, doesn't mean I don't look around. I'm just trying to help CT look more professional.

@Raze; I sort of guessed that, but thank you very much. c:

With the type of people this site has, I don't think this site will ever be professional.
And, thats why I said "I'm surprised"

@Raze, Thanks again. :D

@Sleepy; It would attract more intelligent people if the site had no typos outside of posts, yes? I'm kind of offended that you think I was just trying to make the staff look stupid or something.

No probably not, we've to many trolls.
I don't see how you got that out the post, that was never my intention.

Well then, at least if people don't show up we'll know that we've tried our hardest and done everything we can.
And when you say "Or are purposely trying to find the faults in everything?" that's not the case, it's just that I could notice bad grammar/spelling from a mile away. It sounded to me like you were implying that I was trying to make the staff seem stupid, but I probably did jump to conclusions. I still am taking it the wrong way though.

Yeah, most girls take things in the wrong way...
Back to subject...

I was referring to you trying to scope out the problems in everything, then correcting them. It's not like you're perfect at grammar for example:
You typed
And when you say "Or are purposely trying to find the faults in everything?"
You should have put said, instead of say.

That wasn't going back to the subject. The subject was that there are typos about this site.

But Owen's right, that's perfectly fine, now you're trying to "scope out problems." I do know a thing or two about grammar, mind you. Maybe it's not perfect, fine. Nothing is.
I wasn't trying to "scope out" any problems. They're just things I noticed, and to me they're blazingly obvious.

And I only took it the wrong way because it came out rude. You haven't even denied that you meant for it to come out better than how it did, you're only furthering the issue which tells me that you did mean for it to seem rude, or at least that you're fine that I took it that way.

That maybe true, but most of this topic was "rude"

None of this topic was rude, I'm just trying to be helpful. It's just a friendly critique.
You even said yourself that this would be helpful to the admins. :/
