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

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.)

That was the amazing part. Things just keep going.

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

[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.

What's precedent ever done for us?

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.

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?

Chiodos needs work. It also Needs Wiki Magic Love, but that's an issue for another time.

Taking steps to abandon this handle.

Hate to double post, but I've found some more stuff.

Towelket: One More Time and all its subpages have a bunch of grammar issues.

Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star is a very new page, but it's already picking up grammar problems. I've noticed in general that a lot of the game's fans do not speak English as a first language, so I'm wondering if this might be a page that needs to be checked up on every now and then.

Taking steps to abandon this handle.
