Mottaka's last four posts here. I leave it up to you to decide whether they fit the rules or not but they don't seem to in my opinion.

[edit]And here, WarriorX's post is only three sentances long.


Mottaka lucked out. I combined his four posts into two acceptable posts. The other has been handled.-Jasmine

Thundarhart's last post is only 3 sentences. Other posts in the thread look like just quick borderline double-posting to make the counter but this one was obvious.

Handled. -Jasmine

I did allready messaged Thundarhart on myself to edit his post.

Thank you for doing so. Unfortunately, it still had not been edited by the time I was going through and I caught him before I read your post.

Bane's post contains a run-on sentance of the ages, and appears to only be three sentances total.

and on another note ,who cares what day i post as long as i post :P

((The day you post only matters in so far as which week you want the post to count towards. :wink: ))

Djodjick's last post has a paragraph of three sentences and another single sentence afterwards.

[Edit: Never mind. Seems as though she's added more now...]

Klom Your post did not fit the theme of the thread in which it was placed. Plus the paragraph was actually two paragraphs stuck together so that it would have 4 sentences. A paragraph has one theme or topic, not two.


Djodjick Did not have a paragraph of four sentences.

WarriorX Did not have four sentences in a paragraph.

Toe Jam Both posts did not have a paragraph of four sentences.

Thundarhart Only had 3 sentences.

Bane I'm not editing run-on sentences any longer, and I counted only 3 sentences in your post.

TEN-Steel Had only 3 sentences.

~Slim~ Both posts do not have a paragraph of 4 sentences. I am not editing run-on sentences any longer.

Kamatayan Did not have 4 sentences in a paragraph.

Bane Did not have 4 sentences. It is difficult to read run-on sentences so please try not to do them in the future. Thank you.

Ravan_Kiir Did not have a paragraph of 4 sentences. Please don't make run-on sentences. Thank you.

Natmoya Did not have a paragraph of 4 sentences.

It Did not have a paragraph of 4 sentences.



There are a LOT of posts that could have been acceptable if people would use proper punctuation instead of using run on sentences. Run-on sentences are difficult to read and make me cranky. When I get cranky, I'm less likely to be accepting of borderline posts and there is more chance of you being deleted for not following requirements.

For people who like to use ... in their posts. When writing, if you use three dots in a row, you are using Elipses. Elipses are used to indicate that an omission has been made in that area of your writing. (In other words, you've left part of a quotation out of your post or if it is in a characters speech or actions- you are leaving something unsaid or unmentioned to gain the reader's interest.) Elipses should not be used in place of a period. At all. Thank you.

I wouldn't have mind, if you would have had trust in me. There are some people that play only once a day.

Besides the fact there are some non-english speakers here, who just learned english as a second and a third language, some just do mistake's. I know you haven't been TOO serious about this in the past, but please have a look here anyways: http://www.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/marks/ellipsis.htm
(I just found that on a "Grammer and Writing" site)

Quote:
... The ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in the flow of a sentence and is especially useful in quoted speech ...


Thats means it can be used not only in a quote, but also if you want to break events with a pause. And i usually do that quite a lot, for example if i give a view into future events, which i don't want to tell yet, but what can or what will happen.

After all, there are modern author's who break with the conservative concepts of speech and who still sell their books. And in a "technical" sense, some of them have worse interpunctations. A few even have none.

All i want to say: give people the benefit of a doubt.

This thread is not the proper forum for your statements Loradim. If you have issue or concerns with anything Jasmine has done, or her moderating in general, you should start by PMing or e-mailing her. (I forget which she prefers).

Skyline's posts - the one linked and the two following it, need to be addressed.

The first post does not contain a four-sentance paragraph, and only 5 sentances total.

The following two posts have only three sentances, and additionally constitute an accidental double-post.

((Taken care of.))
