chronicle



  • i sended a few chronicles.but when comes it out? :confused:

    ------------------



  • If you don't start using capital letters and proper punctuation, it may never come out. They do filter the things, you know.

    And "sended" is not a word. "Sent" is the past tense of the word "send".

    Commas ( , ) should be used before conjunctions, not periods ( . ).

    Unless you are trying to imitate Yoda, "when comes it out" is not proper grammar. "When does it come out?" is correct.

  • Chronicles are released at least a week apart, so the next chronicle to be released will come out late tomorrow.

  • I'm so sorry if I offended you. If you had told us your nationality and age before, we would have stopped bothering you about your English. I've heard that learning English as a second language is difficult.

    There are a lot of American (and British) kids who have been writting in English their entire lives, and who can use English properly in real life, but who refuse to do so when they communicate with people online. They seem to be under the impression that the language rules do not apply when they are online. We don't tolerate those people very well around here. I'm sorry that I assumed you were one of those people.

  • If you think English (url="http://"http://www.hyperdictionary.com/computing/asciibonics")ASCIIbonics(/url)/netspeak are bad, you should see French. ("ya kkn ici ki peu m'dir si c ben francĂ©?")

    I guessed english wasn't your first language, a lot of foreigners have trouble with using the right form of "to have" properly so you aren't alone. (and you did use punctuation, though perhaps a slight bit too much ;) ) Your chronicles are still in the queue - all four of them, so submission worked properly. Now, we just wait as Slayer releases them one at a time.

    Speaking of which, Slayer: personally I'd release Pallas' over Thanksgiving (next week), and one of bellerophen's this week. That would give you the chance to mix up the authors being released just a little.
