So this has ALWAYS been a pet peeve of mine; since the beginning of my Sleuthing.

*NOTE: This is not as big of one as the waiter/waitress 'fiasco' was*


Take a look at Sleuth Admin's detective page, for example.

"Politics
Order o Socrates: Good(10)
Arcanum Brthrhd: Good(10)
Cosa Nostra: Poor(-3)
Eastern Triads: Good(10)
Circle of Light: Poor(-2)
Green Hand: Good(10) "

Notice that of is "o", not "of" in Order of Socrates
Notice that Brotherhood is shortened, and the word Dies is completely absent
"La" is missing in La Cosa Nostra
Isn't it "The" Green Hand, "The" Eastern Triads?


Now I know this was done because of margin widths, but can it not be fixed in any way? It's not only annoying, but also can be confusing as to what the factions are called. Perhaps they could even be shortened to just OS, LCN, DAB, GH, CoL, and ET? (Although that would be very confusing as well)



Just something that's always bothered me.

*wonders if jojo has missed his ritalin dose today*


But yes i can see how this may be annoying, though a tad nitpicky. I think ben has other things on his mind though, like that new FM in dehli, or the wonderful addition of the agency directory.

*thinks maybe jojo should write his own FM and not look for things to pick at :).*

At least you got your side bar back......

LOL
I can understand the annoyance...i was an english major for a while, was going to be a book editor, so i notice most spelling errors, (IRL, not on here). i noticed the socrates thing soon after i started, and promptly forgot. i hadnt been bothered by the others, even if i did notice them. in general, i think its a bit nitpicky...and i LOVE the sidebar!!! the funny thing is, i never really used it till after it came back. now it is all i use...:D

Hee but pet peeves aren't a big deal.. hence the name pet peeve not MAJOR BIG DEAL. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I know what he and Autumn are saying.. I could NOT stand G.Is (American) yahoo msging me with their atrocious lack of punctuation and lack of syntax while I was teaching in Korea. My 5 year olds were brighter!
Hmm... well look at the Commander in Chief , I suppose.

BUT, my pet peeve is there NEVER being enough female bathrooms.. go to a bar.. there's 50 girls lining up for two toilets. Meanwhile, the guy's toilet's are empty and they have a nice long urinal AND two toilets!!

Um.. yeah, Jojo , so when do we see this FM? I have been waitinggggg and waiiittinnggg and which Mod are you going to kill off? Or is that a big secret?

*makes a picket sign for the "JOJO write that FM" march*

Leddy, I agree... the female bathrooms....very annoying. Especially when u've had one too many, and u REALLY have to go. One time, I was standing in a line that was a "mile" long, and I was very drunk...and very annoyed. I told the girl in front of me, that women are so stupid. All they do is go in there and talk, and flip their hair around in the damn mirror, and talk about the cute guy sitting at the next table. Its stupid! Glad I am not like that lol (the standing in there talking, and flipping hair around) I take a quick look, while Im washing hands, and out the door I go. Gawd!

So, after that, my fiance' walked me into the mens bathroom, so I could use it. I was too drunk, and had to go too bad to give a crap :) One guy going bathroom just looks over his shoulder, real casual, and says, "Women bathroom lined up huh?" Im like Yup, and kept on walking. *shakes head at self*

*stands in line with Leddy with a picket sign*
