I'm not gonna drag this out. I'm moving on. I'm preparing another place for me to hang out, and I may very well be the only one there, but it has to be done. Things have been heading downhill here for a while, and I now feel it's time to just let it go. I have a lot of issues with this place, but nothing too terrible. I just need a fresh start. I'll be hanging around for a few more days, and then I'll be stepping down as admin. The other place is still under construction, but it's coming along.
I really appreciate everything so many of you have done for me these past few years, and I mean that. If anyone needs to get in contact with me they can still message me here, and I'll get the notification on the other wiki. I know a few wil…Read more >
The below message was sent to me on my community central message wall because Ruckus requested to be blocked on this wiki.
(Hey Jay, can you make a blog about this? Thanks in advanced.)
I know I have already left the wiki few weeks ago — and before this message give you false hope, the chance of me coming back is quite low for a myriad of reasons — but from what I read on the Wiki, you guys are still concerned about me and my welfare. And that you hope I will eventually come back :-(.
I'm very thankful for that, keep that in mind. You guys are more thoughtful than my friends IRL. And for that, I think you guys over here deserve some update as to what is happening to me.
Right now, the moment I'm typing this, I'm on my bed, relaxing the fuck ou…Read more >
I just recently (like 30 seconds ago) decided to correct a person who has been swearing that a story is true because they've seen videos of it on youtube. I want to know how the rest of you feel about this, because I'm on the fence with this topic most of the time. On one hand, I hate to ruin the fear factor of a story by reminding people that it's fake, but on the other hand, I feel like it's the responsible thing to do at times. So what do you guys think? Do you think we should weigh-in and correct people when we see this, or should we just let their imaginations run wild and let it be?Read more >
I've noticed that there seems to be some confusion with when to use "a" and "an". The rules are actually very simple, so I will state them and also give a site-link to grammar.com as a reference. Basically, "a" is used when the word following has a consonant SOUND, and "an" is used when the word following has a vowel SOUND. The most common problem seems to be with the silent "H" at the beginning of many words. I see a lot of "a hour" which is incorrect.
Another issue is acronyms. Again, it all depends on the sound of the way you say the first letter of the acronym. "A FBI agent" is incorrect, as the letter "F" has a vowel sound when spoken.
Also, a hard "H" would usually have an "a" preceding it. But as noted on the website I am list…Read more >
