    What he means is, there's a lot of people here who's English is a second language. If you could, please try to use correct spelling otherwise it's difficult for someone non-English to translate.

    Could you imagine an online translator trying to translate phrases like "wtf" and "lol" or "bruv" :roll:

    I had Steam, but gave it to my younger brother when I came over as a goodbye gift. Haven't bother to start another account, keep telling myself I need to do it soon :shadedshu


    Wakefield is like in the middle of UK, so while you don't have anybody close by, if we ever organise a get together its most likely close to your place :p

    +1 to Scaminatrix, English should use proper English!

    Whilst kuro, sounded a bit like a dick ( sorry dude you know I love yas but there's a way of saying things and a way of not saying things :p)
    He does have a point, try to put in a bit more effort whilst on the forums, it makes it easier for everyone else to read what you have to say if you use standardised langauge :)

    It makes things MUCH easier for those who don't have English as a first
    langauge. :toast:

    It was how you phrased it dude, made it patronising and a bit offensive.

    It's cool though I know it was not your intention :toast:

    I love the fact people stress the use of 'correct' English when most don't use correct English to begin with. Plus, reiterating Pather's post, tones, intentions & the a-like aren't put across well on the interwebz - we shouldn't take it too seriously. I'm happy to see some talk but we need action folk. Doesn't matter if people don't follow suit you can't force your religion on people - do it for your own betterment.

    On a happier note; I'm going to drink a lot of Old Peculiar tonight and play the new, recently released BC2 maps on my GF's 3870. Gunna push that mother hard! If anyone would like to join my clan mates bitchin' Mumble server send me a PM I'll be home in 15 minutes if my colleague finishes what he should have done hours ago.

    I was wondering, do you guys use more "local" forums, eg Aria? And what are you guys known as there? I am currently just a denizen of TPU, when I need free deliveries, I shall start spamming other local forums :D

    Whereas I'd like to see more bold and italic. Equal oppurtunities for font types and colours!

    EDIT: Stella, Absinthe (I've snorted Absinthe before, FYI :pimp: ) or Underberg for me thanks peeps :toast:

    I find it hard to emphasise with colours, bold and italics are the essential tools for me. Just some people really miss the point.

    On a bad note; my 2.6GB BC2 patch was freaking corrupt.

    >.<

    Have to download the whole sodding thing again!
