Improper grammar

Post # 1
I've noticed that people post really good spells that work perfectly, but they misspell words and use improper grammar so you can't use the spell because you don't know the incantation and you don't want the spell to backfire. I'm just posting this so that hopefully people will start paying more attention to what they are posting and so that those posts can be of more use.

Our members are from all over the world; and for many,English is not their first language. One has to interpret, quite often.
Also,punctuation is not always of the best; like yours!

Yes, I do take that into account and mean no offense by it, but I am just posting this to hopefully help people to notice thier mistakes and improve on themselves, even as you just did. I appreciate that though, so thank you for helping my to realize one of my faults.

Oh,dear! I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, merely point to the fact that we all make mistakes at times. For instance, many of our members write Posts using a cell phone; and that takes a lot more effort than typing on a key board. And, of course, the "shorthand" of text messaging is not allowed. (I don't know how to text! Or how to read it!)
So don't be too down on those who do not use English correctly; even many English people do not use their own language correctly. We have to "interpret".

I only speak, read & write American and usually make typographical errors left and right so I must admire people whose primary language is not English and they manage to do better than me.

I'm on my phone too, depending on the post, I feel pointing that fact out covers you in case of a spelling error.

You are right, it can get confusing, but the site editors are in charge of fixing these mistakes [though spells are pretty permenant] if you feel confident in your English skills, you could offer to proof read peoples spells, though I doubt many would take you up on the offer. People who post spells normally fall into two categories: in a hurry and wants to post spells to say they have or worked hard to make it as perfect as possible in the hopes to help people learn.
