<span class="ev_code_GREY">I am getting very tired of the constant:

"lol i heav an cuestion wut if anltar cud claimb da hoses and shot the guy n ran away bfr the cachh im cud u do that cuz i think it ruined teh game cuzthen it wud b 2 easy lol nd also is dis geme come for wii cuz i like wii n when dos it cme out plz!!11 i need 2 know so i can gett it than"

If you're not even going to try to make sense, why should anyone answer any of your questions?

And yes, I know, there are alot of people on these forums who don't speak english as a primary language, but thats no excuse, GOOGLE IT!
Just type in the word you're not sure about and the correct spelling usually pops up right away.

Besides, hate to break it to you, but your grammar isn't exactly perfect either.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

who cares about grammar, but if you have to solve every single word as if you were some kind of cryptologist, it gets really BORING....

....or fun, if youre that kind of person

*chuckle chuckle* When I saw who started this thread I couldn't help but smile. I just knew it was one of those happy constructive criticism posts. One of those posts that just restore your hope and trust in the world. A post that brings a smile to your face and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling in the centre of your heart. So I thank you Entropy 777. For making the world a better place. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Reminds me of that discovery made about reading...

"wrehe you are sitll albe to raed a setence as lnog as the frsit and lsat ltertes rimaen the smae"

As long as the offending posters adhere to that rule, I'm down with the mutilated english. Otherwise, I pick out keywords and hope I understood. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You used the wrong type of "were", Paryniux.

Thought I would just point that out.

Agree. My first language is Finnish, which is ancient monster of an language and TREMENDOUSLY different from English, yet I try to type the words right, use exact grammar and make my posts easier to read. I even *gasp* use spell check!

The extra minute it takes you to make your posts better, saves us the five extra minutes it takes us to read your post and try to understand it. Considering that many of here (me included) don't have English as their first language, it is even harder for them to understand the insane garble some people post.

And before you complain, NO, it does not need to be perfect. But instead "teh", you COULD write "the". Instead "becuz", you can write "because". Only few letters more, and milliseconds more time. Besides "plz", would it KILL you to write "please"?

I don't care if you don't use capital letters. I understand that you make lot of grammar mistakes if you aren't used to English.

BUT just because your writing can be understood (even if it looks like it has been made by 3 year old with English as his third language), is NOT an excuse to write like 3 year old with English as his third language. Hell, if someone doesn't take time to make their posts at least SOMEWHAT understandable, I usually ignore their posts because they usually don't hold anything worthwhile reading.

Just saying.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I didn't know there was more than one type of "were" turtleraj

Were you to show me where they are, I would be grateful.

Of course, I'm assuming you were joking :P<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
