Better game grammar

Postby mrswdk on Thu Aug 29, 2019 7:55 am

Concise description:
  • Better game grammar

Specifics/Details:
  • If players selected only 1 or 2 spoils, the alert that pops up should say 'you have selected fewer than three spoils'
  • However, at present it currently says 'less than three spoils'
  • This should change
  • I have raised this before
  • It would take approximately two seconds to change
  • Why has it not?

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • More professional site appearance
  • Encourage clear communication via correct grammar
  • One more step taken towards nirvana

It has not changed because "less than 3" is <3, and the site is trying to say that it loves you.

Too bad for the site that I don't take these pants off for free.

I wonder if they're using "spoils" as uncountable, in which case less is correct. But of course, in this game there literally are countable amounts of spoils. The conclusion is that it doesn't really matter, and at this point changing it would probably sound weirder to people than keeping it.

Hi, I fully support you. Your comment is very relevant. Because Grammar as a science is a section that studies the grammatical structure of the language, the laws of building correct meaningful speech segments. The grammar formulates these regularities in the form of general grammatical rules. This has its effect on semantic perception and ease of understanding. This is an interesting topic to write about spam removed by moderator this to people who are responsible for grammar.
