Welcome!

Just a heads up...[edit source]

As long as the language is English, it should be fine. Be it US, Brittish, or Aussie English (or whatever other variations outside of ebonics is), so long as it's grammatically fine with one of them, leave it be. Don't throw a fit just because it doesn't fit with your region's view over what the right spelling/contraction rules are. We're here to help make a wiki on golden sun, not start a war over who's way of writing it is right, 'k? 75.60.182.188 08:28, 24 March 2011 (CDT)

Yes, I have an annoying tendency to read right over stupid mistakes in my own writing (like is is, as you said in the thingie), and that's made me slap myself in the face a few times; but seriously, there's no call to be so rude. The word "alright" is basically an internet word, like "alot." It had its origins a long time ago, but the proper edited way to write it is with two words, unless it's dialogue in a book or something. Check these out: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/alright http://www.bartleby.com/141/strunk3.html And also, our own Golden Sun uses "all right" and not "alright." http://goldensunwiki.net/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&search=%22all+right%22&go.x=0&go.y=0&go=Go
As for your accusation of me not liking contractions... well, I've no idea what you're talking about. But you're right though, I do need to be more careful, and that "is is" thing was plain sloppy. I applaud HungryPaperweight for his solution. God bless! The Sea Shines Golden 11:02, 24 March 2011 (CDT)
Actually, the "is is" was there to begin with. My guess would be that you were so focused on other bits that you missed it. But, hey, we're all human. We make mistakes ;) The World's Hungriest Paperweight 11:14, 24 March 2011 (CDT)
Generally speaking, it's not really worth it to change minor differences in localization. Simply put: Nobody cares. However, actual problems, like the earlier "is is" instead of "he is"/"he was" like it should have been, those are what you should be hunting down. Everyone knows color and colour are the same and both correct. Many of us do things on firefox - and yes, alright is an actual word, the spellcheck feature is our best friend in this regard. For non-issues like that, just don't waste your time, it's just being nitpicky. 75.60.182.188 22:07, 24 March 2011 (CDT)
