    Basically what you do is post a sentence and people like Alyssa, Frostweaver, Latiosspud, or Kairi might come and correct your Grammar. Don't look at this like a put-down, look at it like a chance to improve your Grammar. Happy Posting.

    I'd Correct grammar, but I have superiors.

      I may not be one of the people listed but I'm bored. I'll probably do it this one time.

        I can correct grammar as well. It's been a specialty of mine since I was about six. (That's when my teachers started asking me how to spell words they didn't know. Seriously.)

              I love grammar. But I can't get frostweaver's grammar question. I am reading and spelling way above my grade level.

                Better should only be used as a comparison between two objects? =\ *is bad at grammar*
                Could also need an any other girl there, but I guess better could work if there are two people on the team?

                  Its probably something else but the only mistake I see is that there is no "period." But Kairi is probably correct.

                  And by the way, can I be on that list?

                      AOL slang is considered bad grammar so don't use it! (ex: plz, y, etc.)

                        That has nothing to do with the game=\



                        I believe quotation marks take the place of punctuation in that sentence. I guess it could be something as little as a period, but if so frostweaver is more cunning than I imagined. O.x

                          oh... okay...

                          Correcting grammar is easy... though...

                              Thats so obvious. O.o Even an idiot like me can get that. =P

                              Contraction needs an apostrophe, Its is only used without one when referring to something without genders possession. I.E. Its stuffed toy Honor shouldnt be plural either, and dont ask the rule that says why. X.x;

                                        I see one. In this post, grammar is not a proper noun, thus it doesnt need capitalization. =P

                                          ...

                                          *sees even more mistakes...

                                          That "question" has more than 2 errors... there's contradicting pronouns as well... along with improper tense and use of the word "boring"*

                                              An there's the other one

                                              also Allison is a girl and ''his boring bedroom'' wouldn't make sense.

                                                  *thought he already pointed out those 3 flaws? The 3rd point is not really grammar errors (too general)...it's the use of "boring" that messes up...*

                                                  *... no one got his previous one yet? the correct sentence should say...
