Default Badd spellahz and grammers

Hate to be a grammar nazi, but I got on the "Green Ice" page on the wiki and nearly had an aneurysm. Sure, I understand that not everyone can speak English fluently, but seriously, if you don't know how to write some things, try looking at a well-written wiki page or two.
Maybe I'll pretty it up soon. I already fixed pages for both Vabank movies...

That user is not fluent in English, but it quite prolific when it comes to screenshots. Compared to the number of users who speak perfect English but never upload screenshots, I'll take it. If you can clean up the English, please do.

As someone who hasn't contributed much you really aren't in a position to complain. Funky is right, at least the guy is making an effort. If you can clean up his language than please do so.

Provided I won't be too busy during Christmas, I can do something. I'll track down "this user" and go through as many pages he submitted as I can. Too bad you won't understand the joke about the similarity between IMFDB pages and women.
It reminds me of my former job, though. I was a "community manager", which in reality meant I had to trawl through lots of badly-written crap every day and try to salvage as much as I could.

I have absolutely no idea what you're getting at but take solace in the fact that I probably didn't want to know anyway.

I second that and would like to remind you that you are not required to do any cleaning up. I recommend you either change your attitude and your tone, or take it somewhere else.
