This thread shall now be dubbed the most pointless in the history of EoFF. But either way, I must ask...

Shouldn't the art and writing forums' names be Artists' Forum, Artists' Gallery, and Writers' Corner? I think that would be the most appropriate use of grammar here. I don't mean to bitch, but like I said, I just notice these things and they get on my nerves. :) Not that you're going to change it because of that.

Just needed to get that off my chest...

But this encourages more people to make shoddy writing and/or art

What ever happened about the elections? :p

I don't know about the forum names encouraging stupidity, but it just gets on my nerves a little bit. :)

I'm sure that Writer's Corner and Artist's Gallery/Forum may be wrong, but you have to stop for a moment. Both are nouns, but what's the say that both are supposed to be plural nouns? If that's the case, than yes, the correction would be made. However, in this case, they are not plural nouns. Originally, the forums were originally supposed to be "The Artist's Gallery" and "The Writer's Corner," thus making your call for grammar correction voided null. Instead of correcting the grammar, we must include the word "The".

Yes, including "The" would work well. I just thought that - as the forums contain many people's work - it would be plural, because we as members share the forums. But yeah, if you'd use "The" it would be equally valid.

Just like I am from The United States of America. Who the hell says all that anymore? C'mon. Be lazy like the rest of the world~

"The" is implied. Implications are part of grammar too, y'know :D

Grammer is for sqaures anyway, hence the the sentance being written later which is this one is hribly wrongly made to avoid squareism my peeps.

Says "Of the murder". Fragment sentence anyone? And on top of that it's in two different languages! No, that's not right at all.

Dude, it's a "sentence fragment". The fragment of a sentence. Not the sentence of a fragment.

As for the real topic at hand: it swings either way, and needn't, but can be, changed.

Blame the English language:

bass (base) guitar
Base (base) in baseball
bass (baass) fish

You write something, you say something else

In Latin (Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French) you write something one way and you say it the same way. As far as writing goes it's also easier to reffer to things.

Writers' Forum in:
Spanish: Foro de los escritores :tonberry:
Italian: tribuna dei produttori :tonberry:

No, we just need to get rid of 90% of the people who post in them.

I wonder how people would feel if these forums really did go away.
