Thanks guys for you're helpful input :roll:

john9blue - gimil and i have thought a lot about this and we have already decided to let the reporters do their own checking of spelling and grammatical errors ;) Thankyou for your interest however ;)

And yes Kotaro, we do have 1 editor and that would be me :) The Editor-in chief :P

A FAILURE EDITOR!

Last question.

When I entered College, I knew very little about the actual Journalism process. As I went through my first semester, I learned a lot, not only about the process, but mostly about the different styles of writing with each report.

My question to you is, can there be Global writers, that simply write about whatever they want? Ie, oneday they write up something in opinion, the next day they follow an interesting thread, etc.

*Utters a quick prayer to Owenshooter, thanking him*

I believe at least 1 editor would be nice, Sammy-boy. The reason for this is, A) Spell Checking does not solve everything, and B) Through experience, I've noticed that some writers use words that seem right, when they aren't to other people. It's not the difference between whether or not the word is right, it's what they think is proper usage. Take That last little tif between John and Prowler; Prowler think he's right, John think he's right, and technically, they both can be right, but which word usage is better and more fluent for a paper?

Just a suggestion.


first, thanks for thanking me... i appreciate it...

secondly, if you are going to blast people on grammar, spell checking, writing and usage. you should learn the difference between think and thinks. as in, "john THINKS he's right", not "john THNK he's right"... good luck with that... and stick around prowler, this isn't such a bad place. i enjoy browsing it, and it seems like it is going to be a cool thing once it gets going. they have some great ideas. and believe it or not, they have ONE EDITOR!!!-0

No problem. Look forward to reading this.

I think editorials might be funny, too. Like I said, I probably don't have time to write them, but like others have said, Fruitcake's thread is about as close as we've gotten to such a thing. :)

No problem. Oh, and I apologize to your supreme-ness that my quick, 5 second typing is not good enough for you, nor is it perfect. I'll be sure to quadruple check every time, just in case you are watching.

actually The Prowler is always correct :roll:

the differences in the interperation of words shouldn't create too many problems Kotaro :? as we all scramble for our English/Amercian dictionaries... or more commonly in Flame Wars our Candian/Amercian dictionaries

prehaps eventually the publication could include a section such as letters to The Editor for serious comment

Right kids, grow up. If you wanna discuss grammar, spelling or anything that isn't on topic to this thread then feel free to start a new topic to discuss the subject elsewhere.

Kotaro, owenshooter, TheProwler, deliaselene do me a favour and try and jsut stick on topic. Owen I know you get off on topic hijacking but could you keep it in your pants this time round ;)
What do you know about map making, bitch?

What about someone to report from the Cheating and Abuse Forum?

I'd gladly take a job of that if it was made! :)

We have thought about it, but we are not here to give cheater's and abuser's the attention they are so desperately seeking. The section would only list people who have been banned, and that doesn't make for a very interesting read sorry. We need to be putting these people to shame not making them out to be celebrities :) Thankyou for the suggestion though ;)
