      hey, is the CAP and c&c spelling and grammar standards same?
      also is 'berries' capitalized if the name of the berry isnt before it

        Also is 'so' really usable as a transitional word in
        'x [etc], so can [etc], [end of sentence]' as you correct it? Sounds quite weird imo

        not sure what you're asking
        If you mean can "so" be used to mean "and consequently" then I'd probably say yes, but it depends on context

      In the throh thread, in the starting line you missed out on 'Attack stat' after solid. I'd fix that up :)

        So I did. Thanks for pointing that out.

      The reason i made the supportive-supporting mistake is that i copied it and looked over quickly x_x so didn't change that. Looking back on that, i feel quite stupid. also yeah, i implemented the gp check from earlier, just wanted to reduce my postcount since it's kinda huge
    20. Kingler12345
      Kingler12345
      x_x guess that check went to waste LOL
      1. bugmaniacbob
        bugmaniacbob
        Eh, not really. It's an amcheck, so it wouldn't have counted anyway, and you get the practice and the kudos points for GP team membership regardless

        And now that I look back there were very few errors that both of us got - we both picked up on errors that the other missed. So all in all, not a bad arrangement
        Nov 2, 2013
      2. Kingler12345
        Kingler12345
        yay
        well, everything is practice so that counts i guess ^_^

      Hey, so could you GP rampardos? It's in the fifth gen GP queue. I think I've covered the grammar fairly well, but the prose might need working.

        thanks for the check! however, aforementioned is generally frowned upon in analyses, so i used 'previously mentioned' instead of it ^_^

        Huh. Didn't know that. I remember when I was the only guy who used it. Or something. Oh well.

      4. Kingler12345
        Kingler12345
        yeah, some phrases have become really overused, stuff like crux of 'x' set, aforementioned, etc. I think in gen5 there are threads about that :)

        Pshaw, that's the trouble with this new generation of gp checkers - too soft to improve writing that needs improving. Or maybe I'm just pedantic to a fault. Either way, if you're interested I think I wrote a Smog article on prose checking a few years ago, you could look that up if you're interested.

        Man I sound old talking like this

      Hey, would you mind elaborating on your post in the standards a bit? 99% of what I have was just copied from the old one, so I'm not sure of the general form each sentence should be in. Could you tell me that so I can go line-by-line and standardize them?

      2. bugmaniacbob

        ...personally I prefer "x)." but the thread had plenty of "x.)" and even "x.)." so that should also be fixed.

        If there's anything specific you wanted me to elaborate on from the post I made send me a message, but do note that I've just come back from a year-long absence and so you probably know more about current standards than I do.

        As an aside, congratulations on the teardrop (I only just noticed, sorry).

        By bracket you mean parentheses, right? And following what you said, I shouldn't start sentences with parentheses, I get that. Are you saying I should or should not have periods at the end of the brackets?
        Oct 25, 2013
      4. GatoDelFuego
        GatoDelFuego
        I like periods outside the bracket, so I'll go with your first suggestion. I'll set everything to that standard as soon as I can.

        Also thanks :)
