[!] Typo/Error Hunt (Ongoing)

This is a combination typo and error hunt. XD It's ongoing because I'm always forgetting to update or correct this or that, and no matter how many times I proofread something, I always seem to miss some glaring mistake or another. (:

So, the basic idea is that for every typo/mistake you post for me on this thread, I'll give you a cookie (and ζ5. Yes, I thought that would grab your attention better than my cookies would *sniffle*) and hopefully set about fixing it. XD

There's no limit to how many typos/mistakes you can post (I may even pay out for the same mistake twice if it's been a while since the first time it was pointed out). Just remember to provide a link directly to the typo/mistake, as well as the surrounding paragraph/sentence so I can find what it is I need to fix. :)

Thank you. <3

I found 11! :D

1) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php

According to the information, the Flavor-text on the Wyvern picture is gender confused.

Quote

Males differ slightly from females:

* Smooth horns sloping out from skull
* Bony plates at the back of the head forming a 'mane'

The flavor-text should say Male, not Female :)


2) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php

in the information on Imp Dragons...

Quote

Abilities:

* Element-dependent abilities
o Earth wyrms can spit acid
o Air wyrms can breathe poisonous gas
o Fire wyrms can breathe fire
o Water wyrms can spit water or ice

Should say "Imps" not "wyrms"

3-7) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php

in the "About Nirim" portion it still says "Humanoids" instead of the new "Dracovari"

Quote

under the weight of the global media, humanoid Dragons began to fear for their safety

and the dragons agreed to accommodate their humanoid descendents.

accommodate both beast and humanoid dragons with thick, reinforced limestone walls

the perimeter wall to defend against rogue dragons and prevent humanoids from wandering out of the city

the city is reserved for humanoid dragons, where no beast infringes on their privacy.


8) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php
The "History" portion also still says "Humanoids" instead of "Dracovari"

Quote

Some even achieved their goal, creating the first ancestors of the humanoid Dragons


9-10) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php
The "Summoning Dragons" portion also still says "Humanoids" instead of "Dracovari"

Quote

Summoning dragons is a large part of a humanoid Dragon's life

Summoners and statistically more acceptable to humanoid Dragons.


11) http://www.faroah.com/info/beasts.php
In the "Dragon Species" portino the family-tree-grid-thing needs to be updated to say Dracovari as well (instead of Elysian Dragons).

Argh! *hangs head in shame*

These are not the typos you're looking for, Obi Wan. (:

Thanks Amber! Fixed, and also I merged your post with the official "stupidity hunt" thread and moved the lot to Feedback where it should have been all this time instead of Contests. And gave you monies for your troubles! <3

"It is thought that these six elements are the stasples in all creation and the building blocks for all life (be it created by Xanth or natural forces), and that even now they are inextricably woven throughout every living thing. "

Should say staples, here. Stasples sounds like a nice word haha

"and put the Earth date in brackets after (eg. "9533 XA (1533 AD)") "
located: http://faroah.com/ef...erCreationGuide

In the USA, brackets can be made with your keyboard and come in two varieties: these things { } (curly brackets) and [ ] (square brackets)
Curly brackets are used in mathematical notations to denote sets, eg {1,2,3...} AND SERIES (that's my name!)
And square brackets are used to notate indices in arrays in programming languages, eg myArray[3], and also commonly used in footnote notations[5]
I think you meant to say parentheses.

Oh, I didn't know that. :o In the UK, they're all brackets. (Granted, formally speaking, parentheses is more accurate. _)

There is not much that is consistent from beat to beast except that they are all gigantic and usually unrecognized.

Quote

When provoked, they ignore all else, but when their life is in danger, they tend to uproot themselves and go elsewhere

Meaning they ignore their surroundings and go on a rampage or they just ignore the provocation?

Quote

it is thought that perhaps small Nindmos go into hiding deep in the earth until they are large enough on their own.

Large enough to....? on their own? Hunt kill forage for food?

Grammar Nazi Time:

Quote

However, if enough racket is made, the beast may awaken and go someplace else, surely collapsing any caves and tunnels in it's wake due to it's size.


In the same vein for Solomon

Quote

It's eyes are always a near neon color, often very piercing, ranging in red, blue, orange, yellow, or green.


Quote

No words, let alone sounds, have ever been heard by a Solomon, but it is rumored that a female will whisper a sweet, yet terrifying lullaby to any humanoid before she eats them

It's an odd way of putting it since the trait has nothing to doing with the Solomon's hearing, and everything to do with its (lack of) speech. Have ever been heard from the Solomon's mouth?

Major typo/error going on here

from Zan page:

Quote

Ilia has no Nahan. Instead, each tribe has its own leader, the Raisam.


In the linked Raisam page

Quote

The raisami are the leaders of Zanaryan tribes in the rebel nation of Reixos.


So these Raisam.... are the leaders of Ilia or Reixos? (I'm going with Ilia since the Reixos section says they got their own Nahan)

*shields errors* You saw nothing! <_<

Thanks again, Pchan! Fixed it. *holds finger up to lips* (You were right: the raisami are Ilian, not Reixan.)

Here again...

On the front page of EF...Under Characters, the subforum description reads:

Our repository of active and inactive character profiles. You can also pretty much anything character related. :)

I think you might be missing a word or two here. >.<

Regarding Hypnosis:
On theVampire Race Page it is not listed as a skill, while on the Charmer Vampire Page it's listed under "related pages" and not as a skill

Under Organisations:
Missing the Black Rose Cabal under vampire covens
