I don't understand why everyone thinks I said it makes it good, because I never said that. It makes it better, not good all of a sudden. Just thought I'd make that clear.

So what if my grammar is not the best. "Mercury was saying that you have improved [grammar/site] as if it makes the [grammar/site] good." Are you saying that better grammar dose not make the site better? Dose this "[grammar/site]" mean grammar and site or grammar or site?

I think it means Grammar or Site. No, I am just saying that better grammar doesn't make it miles better. It makes it better, but what makes it more better (if you get what I mean) is the content. Did that help?

I think that stems largely from the way you said 'I think you'll find he's improved it' to Terry.

Maybe if you'd listen to us and improve your grammar we'd be more willing to help you--'so what if my grammar is not the best' really doesn't inspire hope for taking criticism on your site. Just a thought.

Can we stop paying attention to this thread? There are lots of other Advertising threads that deserve the attention this one is getting more than this one does.

It's quite a bit easier point out flaws than give praise while still being constructive. :/ Human nature, my friend.

Ken, is English your native language? If not, try to improve a little before making a forum or website. So far so good, though.

If English is your native language, then try to add proper grammar and punctuation if nothing else to your posts and forums so that people can understand you better.

Can I just suggest that you organise your forums, and/or put them into categories? I think it'd make the place look a lot tidier. And some form of description for each board would be good too.

And, put less Swampert in your sig, or be more specific which to click on. It took me forever to find the one with the link. XD
