  1. First article was too painful to read due to the grammatical mistakes, so I won't comment on the actual content of the article other than saying that using the excuse "humans make errors" does not cut it when you are an editor or even a writer for that matter. That many mistakes isn't human error. Knowing fragments from complete sentences and when run-on's occur should be common knowledge that shouldn't be overlooked. I don't think we should be the people emailing Mirrorforced with the errors because we are not the editors and it would take a while to correct all of the mistakes. Moving on to the second article (which also had plenty of errors), I don't see a problem with the Runescape ad, as it only provides information on their own product. The revenue they bring in due to the members version of the game is what supports the free version of the game. So if you do not want to pay for a game you spend a good deal amount of time playing, then you should not be so stubborn and expect not to view advertisements.
  2. Damn, I havn't played in about a year and havn't been a member, but I'm considering paying for a month just to see how many days I have since I've been playing since 2001/2002. Ugh, why couldn't this be a free feature.
  3. Ahh the power of exaggeration. If you saw some errors, fix them and send the fixed version to mirror. He will change it if he agrees on them and that will be so. If your so good at editing people's works then he might even offer you a position on the staff for that sole purpose. It's a lot easier when you can sit here on the forums and exaggerate over something though so maybe this is what your best at. Negative comments are fine; however, your just sitting on these forums and ranting about it when you could be spending that time editing all four of this weeks articles and sending them to Mirror, while making a good impression of yourself. Started reading the second article by Master_Smither, Unbuyables, and I couldn't finish it after I read the first sentence. When writing an article you should probably at least make sure the first sentence is grammatically correct. The fact that you are/were an infamous troll around these forums that supposedly quit the forums ages ago ruins all your credibility. I could point out that you misspelled a simple word such as "a lot" in your posts. If you think you can do better by all means do so and show off your true talents by submitting a guest article or sending in some edits. I'm not going to sit here and further discuss this, as there really isn't much more to be said. Spend more time editing rather than ranting/trolling because you claim to be good at it. There is one big difference that you fail to mention. I am not a Tip. it writer nor do I want to be, and you are. Therefore, I hold you to a certain standard which you didn't fulfill in this article. Either way you put it this many mistakes in any article is not acceptable in any organized writing, even in high school. According to this forum's definition of troll, I guess I am since it considers discussing any flaws with anything involving Tip.it trolling. Anything not clearly positive is trolling.
  4. Noone here is trolling. We are discussing articles which involves discussing how an article has a lot of errors which make it hard to read and hard to talk about the positives or discuss the actual content.
  5. Started reading the second article by Master_Smither, Unbuyables, and I couldn't finish it after I read the first sentence. When writing an article you should probably at least make sure the first sentence is grammatically correct. People can make mistakes you know, we're all human and capable of error. One tiny error word in the article is hardly a reflection of the article's value. If you're a writer for a popular fan website or any respectable website, you should proofread your article. Grammar matters alot in any writing, and many people are reluctant to continue reading when an article has obvious mistakes. I don't know what Tip.it's standard is, but for most websites that wouldn't be acceptable.

  7. I do rate good, I just take the nerdiness and the actual person who got the achievement into account because context is everything.
  8. 10/10 because of the amount of idiots on this thread.
  9. You tried to make sense but failed miserably. While there is a set amount of hours it takes to get 95-99 runecrafting, doing it in 8 days and 8 months is totally different. 12 hours a day on the computer is different than <1 hour a day on the computer. That's what no lifing is... spending the entire day on the computer and not doing anything in the real world. If you play 1 hour a day, you actually have time for work...for friends...for everything that is involved in actual life. Not to mention that since he played that many hours in 8 days, he will continue to play alot while that one person you speak of that does it in 100 days will continue to play <1 hour a day.
  10. What happened to this thread and why wasn't I, or that "one person" that reports everything informed.
