From the Player Guidelines:
A. For starters, some spellings really drive me up the wall: alot, alright, definate, independant, infinate, gaurd, lightening (when used to describe lightning), noone, seperate, and villian. Research will easily reveal that a few of these spellings can be justified. However, please don't try to use reason with me when it comes to a pet peeve! If it was completely rational, it wouldn't be a pet peeve in the first place. Also, I've already done the research; I doubt that any further arguments will change my perspective. Please avoid spelling these words in the ways I've listed.
B. Using apostrophes to pluralize a word is like nails on a chalkboard to me. The original Dungeons and Dragons boxed set was published in 1974, during the '70s, not the "70's."
C. This isn't so much of a concern, especially for the other threads, but for the Acqua Alta thread specifically, please remember punctuation, use capitalization, and pay attention to homonyms: it's, its, their, there, they're, to, too, two, your, you're, and so on.
D. Try to keep the "txt" or "1337" speak out of this. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then don't worry.
Clearly many or most of these haven't been a problem at all. For example, I can't recall any instances of txt speech in this group. I just want to make no secret that this is my weak point. However much I may make mistakes myself, seeing other people do it rapidly exhausts my patience. Therefore, in this one area, please be patient with me in turn, and humor my hypocrisy a little.
McKean's Law: Any correction of the speech or writing of others will contain at least one grammatical, spelling, or typographical error.
