Spelling mistake
« on: May 08, 2010, 02:18:31 am »

On one of your achievements you spelled dying incorrectly.
The Man Who Cannot Die.
Dunno if you meant to spell it like that, and if you did then fair enough.
If not you might want to change it :p

Are you serious? oO
You mean it should be like "the man who cannot dye his hair" instead of "the man who cannot be killed"? :o

Think again.
Stop trolling. (if this was an attempt to)

Thank you!

Not joking, look for yourself.
Are you sure it is meant to be spelled like that?
I meant it is this:
"The Man Who Cannot Die - Play an entire ROUND without dieing once (10+ kills, > 4 min in round, No Spectating)"
And it is meant to be
"The Man Who Cannot Die - Play an entire ROUND without dying once (10+ kills, > 4 min in round, No Spectating)"
I don't have an A level in English but I think you'll find I'm right.

Maybe if you'd've known that when you complain about something you should put what it is you're complaining about in your first post you would've done better on your GCSE. Then again, if you pick up a newspaper these days you realize you can get a BA in journalism without knowing that.

1. I did put what I was "complaining" about. I gave enough information for you to look up the achievement and the incorrect spelling.
2. I was not complaining, just saying.
3. I claimed to not have an A level in English but I did get a B in GCSE.

Haha, you just need to proof read it more :p
I just happened to glance over it while reading the achievements... I'll be nice and let you guys know if I find anymore.

So I was right? :p
Anyway I think this should be finished now, I looked on at the rest of the achievements and they are fine... but I scan read them so who knows!
