Grammar[edit]

Hey Luke, please try to give your fellow writers a little slack. The articles you've been working on recently were originally composed by a user whose first language isn't English. There are a lot of articles here that wouldn't even exist if he hadn't gone to the trouble of building them. So feel free to fix the grammar by all means, do complete re-writes if you feel that's what's called for, but please be careful not to rough up fellow users in the process. Thanks! -- Mythigator (talk) 08:39, September 15, 2020 (EDT)

Hey Myth, Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't realize that it was written by a non-English user. I'll try and examine the articles a little bit closer next time. Thank you! --Luke (chat) 09:33, September 15, 2020 (EDT)
I tidied up your reply a little. I don't think we have a "reply to" template. Anyway, thanks for being attentive. Just looking at a username won't tell you whether their first language is English, but a closer examination (like you mentioned) should reveal a pattern. I do agree that there is some grammar that leaves me shaking my head, but the best way to go is just fix it and not say anything. The user I'm thinking of, the original writer of those articles, doesn't mind people re-writing them. He knows his English isn't the best. But he's made huge contributions just by building those articles in the first place, and for that we are grateful and appreciative that he's around. Cheers, M. -- Mythigator (talk) 09:54, September 15, 2020 (EDT)

RE: Hey![edit]

Hi Luke, I’m FireyYoshi. What do you want to talk about? FireyYoshi (talk)

Hey Firey! We could talk about our interests, what we do, or what hobbies we do. The possibilities are endless!

Cool! So what is your favorite Simpsons episode? FireyYoshi (talk)
I would have to say King-Sized Homer. It's a pretty well-written episode with tons of fun humor in it. If you take a look at my profile picture, it literally has "Rag on a Stick," a famous quote from that episode!

I have too many to pick a favorite. What’s your favorite video game? FireyYoshi (talk)
I would say Minecraft or Fortnite. They are both great games other than the fact 90% of the toxicity is from the communities. What's your favorite type of animal?
