HI EVERYONE I HAVE COME BACK (ALIVE) FROM FINALS!! 😀
Thanks, Angela, for posting the events n’ stuff 🙂
I plan to update these things:
1. Vintage Gold History page (I took screenshots, I just have to add them)
2. Green Ville Bills (won’t take long, I already have the password in mind, I just hafta hide them all)
3. Think about the Speak Your Mind page and how to make it more convenient for me to look at your answers
4. That’s all for now, no need to get ahead of myself xP Although finals are over, I still have English homework, yep.
And now for the second part of this post, a mini contest I thought of just now! I shall call it…
The Grammar Nazi Contest
What is a Grammar Nazi? Don’t worry, it has nothing to do with Adolf Hitler ;P
Grammar Nazis are people that are SUPER picky about grammar and spelling, and they love sharing their knowledge of grammar by correcting people. Although they are smart (grammar is important!), they are sometimes seen as annoying, because they correct people’s grammar at the most inappropriate moments.
Girl: Omg someone help, I looked out at my neighbor’s house and there house was on fire…!!
Grammar Nazi: Their*
Grammar Nazi: You used the incorrect “there.” “There” is a preposition, and “their” shows possession
Ok back to the contest. In this contest, you will all become Grammar Nazi’s! 😀 Don’t worry, we won’t think you’re annoying, this is for fun 🙂
Search around this blog and try to find grammar/spelling mistakes made by anyone in the comments. Once you find one, comment the correction, and hashtag it “#grammarnazi” so that people will know you’re doing this for fun, not because you’re an actual annoying grammar nazi 😉 Hashtagging it will also allow me to find it easily.
Try to find as many as possible, the person with the most corrections wins!
Contest ends on
Friday, May 23 Saturday, May 17, 11:59 PM FST
You can correct any comment from any page/post/anywhere in this blog, as long as it’s not the Ville Bill page
Once someone corrects a comment, that’s it, you can’t comment again (that means you can’t use the one in the example either, I already corrected it!)
Your comment must have “#grammarnazi” in your comment or I won’t know that it’s for this contest.
No correcting capitalization or punctuation, there are hundreds of those, because nobody really is that formal when commenting on a blog… Grammar and spelling only!
If I approve your comment, that means I saw it and you got your points. If I don’t think it counts, I will just delete the comment.
Also, slang like “thx,” “u,” ur,” “luv,” and others that people often use do not count.
As a general rule for what counts and what doesn’t: If the person spelled it that way on purpose, it doesn’t count. For example: any slang, adding a bunch of extra letters for emphasis, etc.
Correcting a viewer’s comment = 1 point
Correcting MooMoo’s or Angela’s comment = 3 points
Making an incorrect correction = 0 points
Making a correction but not hashtagging #grammarnazi = 0 points
1 winner only: the person with the most CORRECT corrections before the deadline
Prizes: a free location of 1 random Green Ville Bill (once they are released) OR 1 free gift on Fantage (the ones that you buy for your buddies and send)
Have fun, and bring out that inner Grammar Nazi ;3 I also want to see how competent you guys are at grammar [: If you have questions, just comment!
