Actually, to be accurate, it's a series of inter-connected adjectival prepositional clauses - and it's perfectly legitimate (if not perfectly satisfactory) English, due to the heavy use of ellipses.

:shock: :roll: :lol:

Yes, I am an English nut. :wink:

Each line he said was connected by "and." It would be fine if he connected it properly with the use of variety in his conjunctive adverbs or linking verbs. The use of a "..." isn't permitted in any kind of formal writing if writing a long passage of words connected by only that form of punctuation is used.

Therefore, it must be considered a run-on sentence because of the over-use of "and," "...," and no other proper punctuation marks.

...

Yeah, I'm one as well. :wink:

Like Lack doesn't have more important things to do. He made a decision, after a poll, and you should respect lack enough to respect his decision. This thread needs to die, so we can go on dealing with more important stuff. Let's stop being pettie.

monday evening i sent a pm to lack
i basically asked him to give a yes, no, or maybe answer on changing the name back to off-topic topics
i told him that i understand that in the end that the admin makes the final decision
i also appologized that i am using up his time, as he surely does have other things to handle
but then he sent me a reply
he stated that he admits social lounge is not very popular and he will consider changing it back
this gives me the encouragement to carry on the protest of the social lounge
i also told him that one good option would be to re-name this Off-Topic Topics and name the upcoming systemwide realtime chat the social lounge
and i also said that if he would not at all be willing to bring back off-topic topics that i would respect that decision and give up the fight for off-topic topics

Because I don't wish to hijack this thread, I've moved my response to the following thread:

http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewto ... 4555#74555

Truman, and any other interested party, feel free to respond there.

Eh... yeah, sorry about that. :lol: :oops: :lol: (Took care of it.)

And I am glad to hear that getting off-topic topics back is still a viable option!

I think social lounge is popular, it's just that the people who voted for it in the first thread, didn't bother to vote again in this thread, as it was a mockery to democracy... a bit like the Nice referendum here in Ireland. Anyway the lengths you're taking this to is beyond retarded. It's just a name, live with it.

NO joke... not only is it a name its a name to the only forum NOT RELATED TO CONQUER CLUB....so ideally its the thread people should least pay attention to.. not spend their entire time posting in.

The irony of this statement is fantastic.

And if you break it down, it would look like this.


"well i am sorry, but life is not always, and usually is not, ideal"

Which also makes no sense.

Caleb, life isn't always ideal, so why not just let it go.

The irony of this statement is fantastic.

it applies to everything, including the movement to get the true name back
but that will not stop us from trying to make it more ideal and favorable
because of this lttle thing called hope
