Some of my best lol's have been reading Stefans grammar errors. I'm sure there have been some horrified gasps at my own grammar or sentence structure.

There are very few instances where you will see a news posting on a professional game with bad grammar, because it promotes professionalism. I'm sure you would appreciate Graal having a greater professional appearance in its advertising and news postings, no?

The question of whether or not somebody has Gold seems to imply that Gold is required, or... ? In other words: is having a Gold subscription required?

I'm not positive on this, but is the Wiki for gold members only? Perhaps that was the reasoning behind asking such a question.

The way I think of it, asking the question might mean that they need to know if accommodations need to be made. Otherwise, Stefan should have mentioned that Gold is required in his post... anywhere.

You do not create a new account on the wiki, use your Graal account, as long as you have Gold, you will be able to login. If it's your first time logging in, it may tell you your account isn't created, but ignore that and try once more and it should tell you your logged in then.

Think about the newsletters that were sent out beforehand. I spent more time wondering, "what is he talking about" then looking at what was being presented

on that note, i'm still waiting for the newsletter prophecy to come true

Shut up with all the argueing over gramma. As long as you keep interest no one cares if you are slightly off.

This is so very false...

For too many years, GraalOnline has adopted a poor attitude, deeming poor writing and lack of information acceptable when it really isn't.

Considering this is a game marketed toward children who have no means of paying to play the game themselves, Graal really does need professional looking and sounding websites and documents to lure their parents in. If I didn't know what GraalOnline was and a child of mine asked me to pay for their account, I would instantly say no after looking at the website, wiki, and forum because the writing quality is akin to the spam I get in my junkbox.

As far as the wiki administrator goes...

Ideally, there would be a team of people working on news updates rather than an individual - each could write their own articles, and pass them around for proofreading. By having one person write articles unchecked, it is likely that you'll end up with bias and poor writing. Spellcheck is fine for middle school, but this is the real world.

Not many people even know about the wiki site. Maybe it should be on the Graalonline page, when I say this I mean make it easier to locate. As for making it detailed and of a high level of vocabulary wouldn't be the wisest move unless you planned on making two separate sections, one for which children browse and check whether they are interested in the game, mostly consisted of pictures and easy to read language and a second section for adults/parents/guardians to give them a insight on what they may be buying for their children.

As for me I just merely told my parents what the game was about and what the benefits were of upgrading my account and they agreed to pay for me

we've been through this. she did it because she was sick of being 'harassed' by some of the moderation. she's already talked to you, and she was being fair and mature when she did so about her ban, you replied in an arrogant way.
