Calling all Grammar police!:

I see the Awesomeness.
If you see someone with severe grammar problems, bring it up on Ask The Tropers.

Funny.Woof Woof Power has some bizzarre spelling in place.

Could someone go over Webcomic.Ears For Elves and Characters.Ears For Elves, and make sure all the spellings are American ones?

I can't tell which words do and don't change, so it's likely to be inconsistant as I normally use English spellings. Any quotes from the comic will be Americanized, though, and the original page creator was American, so it's probably best to keep them that way. (I decided this request was more likely to belong here than the Cleanup thread.)

Detective Conan People From Notable Cases has some really careless grammar issues all over the page.

Cosmic Hero has got some serious grammar issues.

[up] Done. It's probably not perfect, though, so someone may want to check it.

Rosario + Vampire needs work. Most of it's OK, but it's such a huge page that there's still a lot that needs fixing.

Made some small headway on Journey to the West and its subpages, but much still needs fixing.

Legend Trilogy needs some cleanup in grammar/spelling terms. I've called the editor in to the Get Help With English thread.

[up] I fixed it.
Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.

Here's what I entered in another thread (still needs help)

Pasila is riddled with:

  • cumbersome long-ass sentences with rambling digressions due to the editors 1) being native Finnish speakers 2) feeling a need to recap most of the episode for every example regardless of relevancy
  • incorrect grammar (mostly regarding prepositions)

I was working on it but it exhausted the juices outta me before I even got past the tropes starting with A...

Gundam Build Fighters and its subpages seem to be magnets for editors with poor grammar. Someone mind giving them a polish?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
