I thought i'd make a thread for people to report any mistakes, errors or spelling mistakes that they find on the website, so that it's easier for Freeola to correct them. Not sure who runs your website, or edits it, but thought it might be useful.

In (not so) related news, despite the fact I only got a B at GCSE English language I seem to be the only person in the whole of HMRC who knows where apostrophes belong. The general rule at work seems to be "There's an S? Stick an apostrophe before it, everyone else does".

People two grades higher than me can't spell or even string a coherent sentence together, it's puzzling as to how some of these people got their jobs.

Is it any wonder why the country is in the state it is?

Ha ha you fox you!

Had to keep that sentence vague to stop any further DDOS.

"I knew Hmmm.... was referring to his......etc"
"That's because I don't write as clearly as you....."
So I managed to guess what you mean because you don't write clearly?????

Jubilations. It appears I was correct.

Let me explain. In the office here we noticed Hmmm.... post about DDOS, and some of us thought, "What is he on about? DDOS? What DDOS"

My opinion was that Hmmm.... was referring to the recent bout of posters who had come back to the site.

Therefore my thought now is, "I win!"

EDIT: Clarified this post a bit :D

Yep, that was all I was trying to point out!

Just my poor attempt at humour when you were having rather a lot of posts/bannings the other day...

@Chris: A DDOS is a Distributed Denial Of Service attack. A term usually used for a method of using multiple computers in different locations to try an 'take out' a particular service, such as a website, by sending or asking for lots of packets of data from the server(s) hosting the website. This can result in the server hosting the website becoming overloaded, which means the website is then unavailable.

I'm not entirely sure what Hmmm is referring to when he mention DDOS though!

Plamsahead is indeed a fellow member of staff who works on the improvements to our interactive sites and lots of other stuff. I'm guessing they haven't realised they're showing as a moderator at the moment.

Ahh Hmmm... I see. Didn't really explain it.

Plasmahead is infact a member of Freeola Staff. He does not post on here very often, and I do not believe he uses that user name. He is a moderator for testing and other purposes I believe.

I'll look into why his account linked "gooble-dee-gook" but I don't think its that much of an issue.

And don't worry Hmmm.... you never bother me :D And I like the fact that you have given me another nick name :P

Hi Warhunt - sorry about the typo!

The point...

Sorry I thought it looked like an error as he doesn't seem to post in the 'normal' forums?!

When you follow the links in his profile to see all the previous posts all I see is *nonsense* or broken links!


Sorry to have bothered you...
