is it possible for the mods to use the ask box for questions? It seems like no one even uses the comment room anymore. I have posted concerns regarding certain posts in there, but because no one even goes in there anymore, it's being ignored. One of the issues I have is that sometimes I see confessions that don't need any grammar correction, yet you change what was in the original text in the image text. For example, post/159148215324/. There was nothing grammatically wrong in the text (1/2)
(2/2) below the image. That whole phrase was supposed to be one sentence, not two. By splitting it up into two sentences, you made a dependent clause out of the first sentence. A dependent clause cannot stand alone by itself.
Hey! First, I want to thank you for being polite about your comment. Most of the asks we’ve gotten about our grammar have been pretty rude, and it’s hard to reply calmly when you’ve got an angry anon to fight lol. i’ve answered this before, and I will repeat. Fanmail is always open for questions and other inquiry. If we kept the box open, I’m sure people would ignore our status and send in opinions. I think it’s just more organized to keep our system the way it is right now.
The comment box is NOT for people to contact admins (it’s in the rules to the right). It’s not our responsibility to respond there. If you have a problem with the grammar, fanmail it to us instead. I’ve been trying to delete the comment room since no one reads the rules and no one talks about the content of opinions anymore.
But the people who run the thing are butts oops.
Reading the opinion, I totally understand what you’re saying. Sometimes it’s kind of… I don’t know like a waste (?) to keep the opn in the drafts just because of a single comma, especially because we’re not claiming to be grammar gurus who get the grammar right every time, you know? I’m trying to be a little more “strict” with commas with the grammar I know
(which let me tell you, I haven’t taken an English class in like over a year please be patient with me rip).
I’ll repeat, we’ve never claimed that our grammar is 100% accurate nor that we will catch every error. This is a place to read opinions, not to grade the opinions on grammar. Now this doesn’t mean I’ll ignore you if you bring up an error. I’ll look at it, and if I think it’s super annoying, I’ll tell the admin who made the opn.
Again, thank you for being polite and patient with us. We hope you can continue to be patient with us! :~))
Love, main admin paperjewels
