What it says. There probably is some stuff to be after the changeover.

That kind of correction actually irritates me a little. Problems with the coding/broken links/etc. are fine, but content critiques should really be done before stuff is uploaded when the author can still freely edit it. :\

Would be preferable of course, but not all read reviews when those are being fine tuned. IMO it's better to correct clear errors than just leave those be.

"I disagree with your opinion of toy" errors are completely different thing though. :)

Alternator Battle Ravage's pictures aren't showing up for some reason. I checked the directories, and all the files are still named correctly, so the wrench is elsewhere in the gears.

Fixed. My regexs hadn't caught that one and replaced the template stuff, so it was still looking for old thumbnails.

Was just perusing the very good city commander review, and I thought it might be worth noting that 'without further adieu' means 'without further farewell'. Perhaps the desired phrasing was 'without further ado'...

Apologies for being fastidious :(


P.S... there are a couple of grammar points too: 'tabs can be flip up' and 'they scrap along the forearm'.

Not entirely sure what happened... I checked my "uploaded" folder on my computer, and all the files were there. The ftp had the pictures uploaded but not the php file, nor had I inserted it in the index. Must've had help from the cats or something...

It's fixed now, anyway...

Is this thread ok for accepting grammar requests/corrections then? Because I've got shedloads in my old reviews, and frankly when it comes to the Police checking up what I've been doing on-line over the years, I'd at least like them to think that my writing skills were up to snuff...

Downright embarrassing, some of 'em. Film at eleven!

Pokin' around in the Classics/Universe reviews, and noticed that the pics that were attached with my review of Warpath didn't make it with the review...

I have no idea why they wouldn't be included. If you want to post them again, I'll get them with the next update.

Yeah! Not a problem at all. I think I have them saved on my home computer. Didn't mean to make more work for ya, just for completeness sake... ;)

I was just reading Prowl 1984's Review on Generations Blurr, and noticed one issue with it that needs correction. In the review, he says that you can't put Blurr into a proper sniper pose with him looking through the scope. This is not accurate, as I have actually done so. Here is he image:

Also, I was looking at the Perceptor review by Paul 053, and took particular notice of the "microscope" mode the reviewer gave him, and have (IMO) a much better version of said mode:

Ko toys Dino-cassette review has an early typo of curious.
Also it refers to KOTOYS website/ as well as the Dino-Casettes availability in the present tense, when that is no longer the case.

Yup, KOToys is shutting down - the review was written some time before that was announced.

"Curios" isn't a typo tho. defined as "something (as a decorative object) considered novel, rare, or bizarre."

None of the latest batch of uploaded reviews seem to have images, y'all.
